Congress Looking At Lawmaker’s Insider Trading

December 1, 2011 8:26 pm 0 comments

Congress looking at lawmaker’s insider trading” Having Congress investigate itself and reform itself is like asking a rapist to oversee the DNA lab!

Seems to me that for years we have been electing leaders to represent us in both parties and they get to office having a small net worth, but they leave office among America’s wealthiest individuals. They become part of the “hated” 1%. The difference between the rich 1% in elected office and the 1% in the private sector is how they each got there.

In private business, in order to get the top 1% they need to have an idea, they need to market that idea; they need to sacrifice personal time and money to develop and work with that idea or product. They need to become the best at what they do and when they need help they hire employees to help them. This helps them become wealthy and it helps the employees feed their families. My employer so far is not one of the top 1% but I am sure happy that I have a job and I will do all that I can to help him get there.  And throughout the process of business and making a profit all in the private sector need to be careful to follow all the laws of these United States or face prosecution and the consequences of breaking those laws.

The wealthy are susceptible to lawsuits from gold diggers, shysters, and many who wish to profit without first making the effort that those who are more wealthy have undertaken. and the more wealthy they become, the more time and money they spend just protecting themselves from the greed of the less desirable in this world. Congress has the ability to help the law suit abuse by passing tort reform but since it does not personally benefit them this will not be done.

In elected office, to get to the 1% club you need to do nothing but get elected. Once there you are free to use insider information for you own personal gain.  Martha Stewart was sent to prison and Congress does this on a daily basis and is above the laws they themselves have created for “We the people”.

Congress does not create any jobs, they do not create wealth. They do nothing but choke off what growth the private sector attempts to make. They regulate the private sector out of business and use their influence to get to the top 1%.

No wonder that Congressional approval numbers are in the single digits.  They say they want to investigate if there is anything going on? They want to make rules prohibiting this? PULLLEASE, they know what is going on; they are all profiting from insider trading, using their positions and the knowledge they have to illegally make profit.   If the elected really want to impress me and get me to trust them, I would like to see them pursue this issue with the same vigor they pursue others whom they do not like. I want action, not words; I want to see prosecutions. I want to see Nancy Pelosi in the hot seat, along with the others from both parties that have taken advantage of all of us. They restrict our freedoms by making laws and regulations and then they do not apply the laws they saddle on us to themselves. It is about time this stop!  Won’t you join me in contacting your congressman and letting them know that you want to see reform in this area, and you want it applied to them?

    Russia Declares ‘Holy War’ On Islamic State

    The Orthodox Christian Church, which is reclaiming its traditional role in post-Soviet Russia, has just described its government’s fight against the Islamic State and other jihadi groups in Syria as a “holy war.”

    According to Vsevolod Chaplin, head of the Church’s Public Affairs Department,

    The fight with terrorism is a holy battle and today our country is perhaps the most active force in the world fighting it. The Russian Federation has made a responsible decision on the use of armed forces to defend the People of Syria from the sorrows caused by the arbitrariness of terrorists. Christians are suffering in the region with the kidnapping of clerics and the destruction of churches. Muslims are suffering no less.

    This is not a pretext to justify intervention in Syria.

    Oregon Shooting – When Tragedy Happens Let’s Focus On The Cause And Not The Tools Used

    While the blood was still dripping from those martyrs who, in front of an evil man armed with a gun, asked them if they were Christians and those strong in the faith said they were. He shot them in the head. While those who were lost or weak said nothing he spared their lives and shot them in their legs.

    Barrack Hussein Obama angrily ran to the cameras to use this opportunity to say that guns being in the hands of the law-abiding Americans is the problem, and we need to restrict the 2nd amendment to spare the lives of “we the people.”

    This is nuts; guns do not kill people, people kill people! You can test this fact in your own home right now. (Do not worry no one will get hurt).

    Gun Free Zones Are Killing Zones

    How did you feel when you heard of the shootings in Oregon this week? Was the first thing that came to your mind the thought that if we only had stricter gun control legislation, this kind of tragedy could have been prevented?

    If you listened to idiotic liberals, like President Barack “Insane” Obama, you might believe that. It is my contention that liberalism is a mental disorder based on the rejection of God and His principles, and extreme irresponsibility.

    What type of Republican Leader do you want in 2015?

    As we look at elections coming up quickly in 2015, as well as the very important 2016 election cycle, what type of “Republican” leaders do you want to shape the future of your county and country?

    Do you ever wonder why it is that the current crop of Republicans are not declaring, at every media interview, “These ills have been brought to you by the Democrat Party!” when speaking of Obamacare, the hordes of immigrants being allowed to destroy our country, the Iranian nuclear treaty, the “Black Lives Matter” racial division rhetoric, the attack on the defense of marriage, the 94 million Americans not currently in the work force,

    Child protection services Sentences Baby To Death ON 9/11/2015

    Child protection services should be self-explanatory based on the simplicity of its name. But they are doing exactly opposite of their name in many places. Wynne, Arkansas is one such place.
