    Insider Trading in DC

    Are Washington lawmakers getting rich with insider trading? Business Insider's Henry Blodget on how big the problem is – American Morning - CNN.com Blogs


    The idea is, many in DC use their political clout to get rich. It's a documented fact that there are a GREAT many folks who go into "public service" only slightly rich, and come out FILTHY rich. There seems to be NUMEROUS cases of elected officials using their office to make a profit, from purchasing land, then passing legislation guarenteeing an increase in value of said land, and selling, to outright insider trading in the stock market, to giving out privileged info to OTHERS who want in on the inside loop on what's shaking in DC to make a profit in the stock market. This appears to be what I HAVE to call a pandemic, on BOTH sides of the aisle. Thoughts?

    What!? DC cheating the rest of us while pandering to their friends and making sure only a few elites profit heavily from the massive coercion and corruption! What next? Gravity is a force between massive bodies?
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    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.
