... which is exactly why we want these irksome govt regulators off of our backs. If the poor over-worked manager had been given a bigger tax cut, he wouldn't have had to resort to such unfortunate compensatory measures.

Mrs. Mittens - I'm with you - let's help Mr. Waqar "celebrate diversity" by either cutting off his hand or stoning him to death. Funny how these people are all for Sharia law until they get caught doing something - then they want to lenient Kamala Harris "no punishment for criminals" American justice system.

Great idea Mr. Teller, Sharia law, see how he would support it if it applied to him............That's why they come to America they know they can pull this crap and get a mild sentence if any.............

I work at Kaiser and know of him. Years ago, I hear his name mentioned when projects he was working on came up. I never worked on any of his projects but I saw him around the office. What fascinated me with this guy was how his name was pronounced. I would hear "Awesome" this and "Awesome" that in the office. I never knew how it was spelled until now. I was shocked when the news of the fraud first broke(years ago). Sad how greed can make people do these things.
