    "First came the 2009 arrest of Raj Rajaratnam, founder of the Galleon Group. Then came the November 22, 2010 raids of three hedge fund headquarters by FBI agents who seized documents and confiscated BlackBerries. Now authorities are serving subpoenas on other, larger hedge and mutual funds. Attorney General Eric Holder has announced the government's widening investigation is "ongoing" and "very serious." (Recently, though, Jesse Eisenger in the New York Times called these investigations a "side show.")

    They just handed the Dems a perfect campaign talking point for 2012-- GOP pulls the plug on grandma... and cuts off life-saving treatment to the little children.

    Well done! GO GOP!

    You do know that you have become so liberal that your senses are fading don't you ??

    First (yet again) you go off on a tangent of how the hedge fund managers are and I quote................. “You defend the bankers that skim millions from citizens pensions yet deny a teacher of our future citizens, $75,000 a year? “.............and I question you about how and why they make money, and you come back with a post about how a few managers make money illegally for the very citizens you are defending.

    So again basically, your statement that hedge fund managers are skimming money from the teachers, is another of your hyperboles...... and that has once again been proven to be false. So you come back with well yeah but a few of them are doing it illegally. So what ??? If you are so worried about those poor teachers making $75,000 a year, you should be bragging about those evil and corrupt managers making those hedge funds millions that helps those unions invested in them.

    So just for arguements sake, I'll ask you why are you defending teachers ???? Right now in American, we spend "MORE" on education (k-12 grades) then any other country in the world, yet we are dropping (to 11 to 14 depending on who is doing the reporting) in how well we are educating our children.

    I'm going to start arguing just like you, with a completely closed mind, it has to be the teachers fault, cause just like you said they are the ones educating our children, and apparently they aren't doing their job.

    Because there's nothing like a sick child sitting in a public hospital waiting room for 8 hours to win over voters.

    And Grandma sleeping in her own feces (because homes must cut their staff) will be go over big time with those values voters.

    Always enjoy your personal swipes Barb!

    First (yet again) you go off on a tangent of how the hedge fund managers are and I quote................. “You defend the bankers that skim millions from citizens pensions yet deny a teacher of our future citizens, $75,000 a year? “.............and I question you about how and why they make money, and you come back with a post about how a few managers make money illegally for the very citizens you are defending.
    So as long as its illegal you have no problem with it?
    So again basically, your statement that hedge fund managers are skimming money from the teachers, is another of your hyperboles...... and that has once again been proven to be false.

    Do you mean the way Enron helped those pensions?

    So just for arguements sake, I'll ask you why are you defending teachers ???? Right now in American, we spend "MORE" on education (k-12 grades) then any other country in the world, yet we are dropping (to 11 to 14 depending on who is doing the reporting) in how well we are educating our children.
    Because of the importance to the future of our country. So you blame the teachers? Is this what this is all about?

    That's what I'm thinking......... the continued class war against the middle class is going to be a big mistake for the GOP with the coming election next year.

    and with expanded Democratic turnout in a presidential year, its looking like this thing is going to turn around and do so rather quickly.
