Speaking of insider trading

Congress makes the laws about it and exempts congress from those laws. What a great job!

Yes, but who are you going to get to pass a law to control congress, CONGRESS? This is much the same as term limits. Who will pass a law for much needed term limits? The people who will be hurt by it?

Fire all of those crooks in DC and start over.

Steal $60 and they put you in jail; steal five million dollars and they put you in the Senate.

We look to our illustrious leaders for the example of how we are to conduct our affairs and we learn. When you blame your neighbors for the country's problems you are condemning them for doing what they look up to as the standard to which they should aspire, for being the best that they can be.

Pirates run your world so go spit on a protester, the pirates say you should.

If you are so wealthy that you can do anything you want to with your time and you choose to spend your time in Washington as a Congressperson you have some screws loose. It truly is a sick situation, SICK I tell you. SICK, SICK, SICK.

Aw twitchkitty, You are just hostile because you do not have your finger in the pie up to your elbow. If you get elected at some point in life your perspective will change.

The question is have you sold used cars yet for a living? That seems to be a good qualifier for elevated service to your country. Using retoric and twisting it to justify anything is also an absolute requirement.

Ha what a bunch of criminals. This is why I will never vote for a member of either party.
