It's part of their job description to write rules, regulations and laws. Lawmakers might have something in the works that would regulate the widget market, for example. While writing this widget reform act, they know it will cause the price of widgets to either skyrocket or decline. They could take this knowledge and sell all their widget stock, or conceivable corner the market on widget stocks. Insider trading laws don't apply to them for this reason.

I believe they can't buy stocks, not certain on this though. Else realistically, every congressperson and senator would be filthy rich.

okay, I'll bite.

all window dressing. no indictments will be handed down...more than likely the truth, let's say.

Now, in other browsing, I came across the fact that the Bilderberg group is meeting RIGHT NOW. Started yesterday. Now, I bring that up not to start discussion on the NWO, but rather to highlight their stated goals and the public face that they put promote open democracy, and to get all the biggies together away from pressure to debate the state of the world, discuss important rising personalities in their respective nations, and talk about intellectual ideas regarding the NOW World Order, not to strategize on achieving a NEW world order of their exclusive control. (Let's leave aside the facts of the New World Order being a legitimate goal established decades, if not centuries, ago). The group says they are not the dreaded "Illuminati" determined to wipe out most of the planet's population and enslave the rest. They SAY they are not.

So. IF that is true as well, then isn't it perfect timing that they, the most powerful elite, are meeting just AFTER the IMF cheif was arrested (and so not in attendance), AND the stock market is crashing AS THEY SPEAK.??

Could it be that these benevolent uber-rich powerbrokers will DO SOMETHING about the global corruption? The meltdown of the global economy? Something to FIX IT? Or will they ramp up the Arab Spring to WW3?? Will they take donations and come up with the trillions needed to bail out the US? (Which they could do). Will they decide to pressure the economic world to get their act together? To fix the US debt issue? To bail out Greece?

Note that Russia and China are not included in the Bilderberg group. Hmmmm.

Do any of you think they might just in our longest shot possibly be able and willing to do something to HELP STOP the destruction of society as we know it??

No different than bombs or bullets.

It is an attack. And the ones doing it
are the enemy of the nation as a whole.
What does that say
about those sitting in congress
who do it legally every day ???

What was that line about:
Foreign AND DOMESTIC ???

edit on 6/10/2011 by boondock-saint because: (no reason given)

Boon, the entire financial system is a con..You know that..
It's designed and controlled to fleece the middle class...

Insider trading is nothing by comparison..
