Even though this is going to sound as though I'm talking out of both sides of my mouth --- and truth be told, yep, I AM! --- I've got to admit that I CAN actually appreciate that the Feds DO put things under a microscope as they do, and move at a snail's pace.
Make sure all their ducks are in a row, so to speak.
And, even though (at this point, anyway) it appears that T and Juicy are ONLY going to be in the slammer for 2/3 years --- despite the 50-some-odd counts for pretty much everything but damaging the kitchen sink that were levied against them --- I also have to woman up and admit that them getting SOME jail time is better than NO jail time at all.
My (personal) axe to grind --- and what has me heated up as hot as a biscuit rising in the oven about this --- is that, careful and meticulous as the Feds are in ensuring the particulars of their cases are addressed and accounted for BEFORE charges fly, I'm a regular Joe (or, JOSETTE!). I absolutely CANNOT help BUT feel that if the people involved here WERE regular Joes (or JOSETTES!), Feds or NO, they would've been cooling their heels in the Greybar Hilton a long, LONG time ago!
And yep, I say that knowing that you're absolutely RIGHT in your thought. After all, facts are facts:
The Feds smelled smoke and started sniffing in behind T and Juicy even BEFORE they were stupid enough to call public attention to their ignorant selves by appearing on RHONJ. They waited it out, and kept storing their nuts away for the winter.
So yep, they're goin' DOWN!!!!!!!!!
I STILL wish the Feds could/would move faster, though!
Can't HELP it!
