    My suspicion is that you really don't know what you think you know, other than your purpose to ad hom attack, and purposely try and distort and lie.

    You sound like a reasonably intelligent person Tere, why you spend so much time, and effort to structure your postings in the most abrasive, inflammatory language you can think of, instead of looking for ways to participate is beyond me...But do me a favor, unless you can respond in an intelligent fashion, I would appreciate it if you just didn't respond in my posts at all....Your over the top name calling, and dishonest flame baiting is not productive at all, and non responsive.

    Good day.

    Is an inheritance earning now? Or does that rule only apply to conservatives that inherit money from family?

    I am sick of all these well connected politicians becoming filthy rich. Our entire government has become a corrupt money machine that guarantees you become a millionaire once you get inside. Every political job should come with term limits, these professional politicians and their appointees are destroying this country.

    Bear in mind that her Canadian investments experienced a sort of double appreciation: a rise in stock prices which was amplified by a dramatic long-term rise in the Canadian Dollar.
    Oh, off-shore accounts.

    Probably has her Iranian stocks in a Swiss Bank.

    Given what's disclosed about her investment portfolio, it appears that she made significant investments in energy, including the Canadian energy sector. The Canadian energy sector with the oil sands is a high growth sector, especially in the context of global growth in demand for energy. So, I don't think it would be fair for anyone to argue that she "did nothing" to make the money. She had the foresight to invest in an area of growth and deserves credit for the returns she has been able to realize.

    In general, political arguments that investment income isn't really earned income detracts from the larger economic picture. Through one's investments, one is assuming risks and making capital available to firms (directly or indirectly). Capital has an impact on long-term macroeconomic performance. A common argument is that most stock trading is secondary not primary, hence capital doesn't flow to the firms whose securities are being traded. That misses the point that if there were no secondary markets, that kind of exit barrier to capital would lead to the development of an entry barrier to capital when it came to the primary issue of securities. Reduced opportunities to convert securities to cash would translate into reduced capital flows to firms.

    And yet, many many on the right and left STILL vote for their respective "well connected politicians". I wouldn't have a problem with term limits for congress and other political perches that politicians love to take bribes...err take "advice" from lobbyists from.

    Yes, I know that's what you believe. That was my point, thanks.

    How about you tell us how she didn't? Innocent until proven guilty, after all. See, I don't go ahead and assume wealthy conservatives got that way by shady means unless some sort of evidence is presented to give me that idea.

    Why are conservatives so envious of the rich? If you work hard, maybe Rice will hire you.
