    Do as I say, not as I do, the motto of Congress.

    Why should I obey the law when they don't?

    The fact that it isn't illegal for any law maker to practice insider trading, is amazingly beyond belief.
    It doesn't matter which side of the isle it's from.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    It's completely legal for them to do so.

    It is the outrage of the people that can change that.

    I think any public official convicted of insider trading should have all of their wealth confiscated. Every bit of it. Houses, jewelry, cars, cash, everything. Then they should be hanged until dead and their bodies left hanging for three days.

    But I have no strong opinion.

    Indeed it is. And it's up to us, the voters, to separate the chaff from the wheat depending on how we define "chaff" and "wheat."

    As for Pelosi in particular, however, there's not much to be said about someone who professes in one sentence to being a devout Catholic and then says in the very next sentence that "they" have a "conscience problem." The problem with Pelosi is more than about telling pronouns.
