    SANTA ANA, Calif. - Broadcom Corp. co-founder Henry T. Nicholas III was indicted Thursday on fraud, conspiracy and drug charges — including allegations he spiked the drinks of technology executives and customer representatives with ecstasy and maintained a warehouse for ecstasy, cocaine and methamphetamine.

    The charges were contained in two indictments unsealed by federal authorities.

    One details the drug accusations and the other charges Nicholas with violations related to improperly accounting for backdating stock options while he led the computer and cell phone chip maker.

    (If you can back date the options, you get to choose the best price to buy the stock before you have to sell it, that is one of the secrets on how the rich trade and get richer. Also, treating your customers to drugs seems to be good for business too.)

  3. Unbelievable.

    I'm not really sure what else to say.

    This rivals that 'forced feminization' lawsuit filed against SAC Capital.

    You just can't make this shit up no matter how imaginative you are.

  6. <b>No, most of these 'laws' are beneath all of us!</b>

    Was DeLorean's destruction on bogus 'victimless crime' charges so long ago that the worthless power-trip gov't agents had to create a sequel in order to 'feel powerful'?

    Only one of these charges <i>might </i> have a shred of merit (slipping people E without their consent). Everything else could just as well have been written by Orwell.
    So pathetic... and if people let this slide without protest (which they will), we're all just another step closer to living in Putin's Russia.

    <b>Never forget WHY they do it!</b>

    From 1984:

    'You understand well enough ~how~ the party maintains
    itself in power. Now tell me ~<b>why</b>~ we cling to power. What
    is our motive? Why should we want power? Go on, speak,' he
    added as Winston remained silent.
    [...]
    Nevertheless Winston did not speak for another moment or
    two.
    [...]
    'You are ruling over us for our own good,' he said
    feebly. 'You believe that human beings are not fit to govern
    themselves, and therefore -

    He started and almost cried out. A pang of pain had shot
    through his body. O'Brien had pushed the lever of the dial
    up to thirty-five.

    'That was stupid, Winston, stupid!' he said. 'You should
    know better than to say a thing like that.'

    He pulled the lever back and continued:

    'Now I will tell you the answer to my question. It is
    this. <b>The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We
    are not interested in the good of others; we are interested
    solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or
    happiness: only power, pure power.</b>
    What pure power means you
    will understand presently. We are different from the
    oligarchies of the past, in that we know what we are doing.
    All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were
    cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian
    Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they
    never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They
    pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized
    power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just
    round the corner there lay a paradise where human beings
    would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know that
    no one seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it.
    Power is not a means, it is an end. One does not establish a
    dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes
    the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. <b>The
    object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture
    is torture. The object of power is power. Now do you begin
    to understand me?'</b>
     
  7. +The other appropriate quote:

    "Did you really think that we want those laws to be observed?" said Dr. Ferris. "We want them broken." You'd better get it straight that it's not a bunch of boy scouts you're up against - then you'll know that this is not the age for beautiful gestures. We're after <b>power</b> and we mean it. You fellows were pikers, but we know the real trick, and you'd better get wise to it. There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What's there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted - and you create a nation of law-breakers - and then you cash in on guilt. Now, that's the system, Mr. Rearden, that's the game and once you understand it, you'll be much easier to deal with."
