    WTF???!!! Only 5 months? Some people take vacations for that long. So much for a fair & just legal system. I’m sure she will enjoy her stay a country club style prison or her happy home. TOTAL B.S.

    If Martha gets 5 months and the system is fair, then Ken Lay better get his will and trust together because he's going to be executed.

    Anyone really think that Martha's the only one to ever trade with insider information? Some of my best trades were on the basis of pretty good information. Guess that the new crime is answering questions under oath.

    So, for anything important, call your attorney and clam up. And, hope that you don't ever encounter Kenneth Star cause he'll throw your tail in jail if you don't answer him.

    Some jackass interviewed CNBC said this was unjust because she has already lost hundreds of millions of dollars. No ****, but when you consider the amount of money she lost her shareholders she deserves every bit of it.

    Imagine if I stole something from you, and then said that I should not face tough penalties because I had already suffered public humiliation and financial loss to me. Ridiculous.


    Her words at her brief statement just now: "I am sorry that a small personal matter has been all blown out of proportion with such venom, such gore"


    PAHLEEZE!

    By the way, her stock is UP over 30% as of this moment today. Which equates to her PERSONAL take to around $90million directly in Martha's pocket!

    She is going to appeal this. Then she is going to claim that she already has suffered public humiliation and financial loss. So they are going to reduce her jail time and other sentence. Then she will spend her time in the "jail" / club house built near the beach / correctional facilit for women. There she will spend her time teaching other women important skills to become self sufficient. This will lead to her being released from "jail" ahead of time. She will then come back, as she says In a statement after today's hearing, Stewart pledged "I'll be back."

    Pointless Sharade!

    I really feel bad for her. I used to know nothing about her, but in the last couple years i've been doing a lot of reading on her life, her empire and how she went from a small-time business owner to billionair all by herself. She really is a remarkable person and a hard worker.
    I think a lot of people are quick to say "what a bi*ch," but if she were a man people would be saying, "he's just being a good businessman and doing what he feels is best for his empire." Put yourself in her position, if someone with inside info called and told you to dump a stock; you would do it wouldnt you? Its just unfortunate that she got caught and felt like she had to lie about it. I hope she overcomes this and I wish her the best.

    [insert "John McEnroe Voice"] You can't be serious! [/McEnroe] What she did had nothing to do with her "empire". So I don't know where you got that. It is NOT unfortunate that she got caught.

    Just because she is successful does not mean she is immune to the laws that everyone else must abide by. Also, given her stature, she should have been even MORE aware that her actions are always being watched. Tough lesson to learn, but everyone should be held to the same standard! (unless you are a diplomat;) lol)

    The latest news reports are saying that Martha is not worried about her "slap on the wrist" sentence.
    She's more worried about being driven to jail by Ted Kennedy.

    I'm with you. This is out of hand. There are a lot of people who did a lot worse. I don't even like her.

    OMG!

    A death sentence!! She would rot next to Mary Jo!

    5 months is the minimum sentence for her crime.

    Perhaps we should pay her for being a criminal.

    How the hell can you feel sorry for some fata$$ pig b!tch like Marth who tanked 200 peoples jobs? She is discusting. I would not piss on the best part of her. I HAVE been in her position with stock information. I did not sell. I'm getting real sick and tired of the mega wealthy in this country getting off scott free. IMO, Martha is a PIG!

    wow peters, calm down! Its not worth getting upset over. Besides, I dont think the fact that she is a "fat@ss" or "pig" really has anything to do with anything. All im saying is that anyone who has done some research on her knows that she is a really interesting and decent person. As I said, I think if the same thing happened to any man, like Donald Trump for example, people would be saying "come on, its not that important." Im not saying she shouldnt be punished, I just think its sad that this has been blown up so much just because its Martha.
    As for her shareholders and those who lost their job, I blame the media. This was a personal transaction she made that had nothing to do with her company. There was no reason why her business had to suffer so much except for the fact that the media made such an issue over it. How would any of you like it if your job/business was affected by whatever you did in your personal life. I think most of us would be out of a job.
