Just the tip of the iceberg folks!

Did you know that insider trading is legal for members of congress? Now we know how they all got so rich. It’s not because of the raises they keep giving themselves or because of the full pension after only four years of service (a pension of 100% of what they had been earning while actually working for life).  It’s because they not only know what changes will happen in the stock market before we do and take advantage of them (insider trading) but ALSO because they use their power and influence to manipulate the market in their favor.

I’ve never been a super big fan of John Boehner, but MAN, this is LOW!  And it gives me a new found respect for Michelle Bachman.  I think I’ll be giving her a second look before the Primaries.  Fortunately she has a book out, so that makes it easier.

    Awful, isn’t it. Beohner isn’t alone. Pelosi has done it and has been called on it. And I’m sure that a large number of them engage in it regularly. It’s totally crazy.
