James Arthur Ray:

Remember him? He's the self-help guru that was running a sweat lodge event that got way unsafe, resulting in the death of three participants.

He's been on trial for months, and it's close to being turned over to the jury.

The guy is a predator/huckster. He charges people lots of money for his events (up to $10K) and yet, in one instance where people were outdoors and freezing, he'd give them ponchos in exchange for $250. That kind of fleecing at every stage is characteristic of a mindset that has contempt for others. It's also characteristic of cult leaders.


James Arthur Ray was a guest on Oprah's show a couple of times. He's the highest grade of flimflam.

Sounds like Sarah Palin, grifter extraordinaire. She is the standard for flimflam to which others should be measured.

"The guy is a predator/huckster."

I'm thinking sociopath.

"Sarah Palin, grifter extraordinaire."

Everything Mooselini knows about grifting she learned from the Master. Newt Gingrich wrote the book. Several books actually, all full of crap, but he cons people into buying them anyway. He gives out phony "awards" to businesses, and charges them $5,000 for the privilege. No, no one out-flimflams the all-time King of the Grift.

Wait a minute?!? Newt is "The Master"? I thought Karl Rove held that title, or did I miss the coronation?

Karl Rove isn't a grifter, he's a ratfucker. Grifters steal money from unsuspecting fools; ratfuckers steal their votes.
