Michael Hamilton :: owner of the Angel Valley Fake Results Exploitation Retreat Center LLC :: and proud member of the gnome family :: spent Friday wearing a tie and being crossed by Truc Do {Munger Tolles & Olson} :: ninja of boring.

Angel Valley has hosted James Arthur Ray’s increasingly dangerous :: and obviously horrible :: Spiritual Warrior event every year since 2003. It’s a miracle that people didn’t die sooner.  That they didn’t surely had NOTHING to do with Gnome Hamilton {2.0} … who charges people big money to watch him pretend like he’s something other than a dirty little money whore.

It’s his land. It was his lodge. It was his fault. Says the defense to the jury :: me thought :: but no.

Such a good argument :: because it was his fault. Not all his fault {of course} :: and not his criminal fault. But Michael Hamilton and his imaginary Angels were at fault. Enabling the devil’s greeds to service your own greeds is faulty.

The defense team spent entire days trying to destroy the credibility and characters of Ms. Martin and Dr. Bunn :: both of whose actions were near impeccable. So the bankrupt :: corrupt :: posing little asshole Michael Hamilton was sure to get his …

… but no.
