this has just floored me...

link to video of barney franks statement

the bit that i find strange is when barney said,
"i did not expect members of congress to trade on insider information"
the head of the house finacial services commity never thought?

never looked onto indider trading or it was in his favour to not look?

here is about congress members complaining about the insider trading bill and how unfair it is

link to congress crying about having to follow insider trading laws

i like it,

"legally no" but in the moral court yes.

lol
must watch them squarm...



is this really going to pass?
if so there will be many people retiring from congress in the short term lol

the typical routine of master criminals who have successfully stole the cheese...
is to wipe out their tracks
I wonder when it will dawn on these clowns that they are the tracks

Yeah, how convenient. Especially since Frank has just announced his own plans for retirement.

I guess this is the best he figures we rate for an effort to give a bad lie. I'd imagine that he's up to his eyeballs in the same misconduct that it sounds like everyone up there has been doing for a very long time now. Sweet for them I guess......white collar felony crimes for us little people out here.

I'm really sorry Dodd, Franks and so many others are retiring by choice. I would so much rather have enjoyed seeing them defeated by landslide. They knew that was coming too, at least for some of them.... Cowards in the end. That was predictable but still a surprise to see them hand over so much collective power by choice. There must be some really REALLY ugly stuff buried they think may come out to be running for the doors in such numbers.

would it be ironic if 99% of them was guilty of this sort of behaviour?
and only 1% was not taking part?

lol

Tell me about it! I believe we are getting ready to see a whole bunch of them admitting that they're jumping ship by the safety word 'retirement'. Probably taking the pension and running to S. America while they can still get out of the US with their skin on their bones. I don't believe it's any mistake that Bush purchased a bunch of land in S. America prior to his term ending. Seems to be a trend with these bleached collar criminals. Buying land outside of this country right as their "job" is ending should be a definite red flag to the commoners.

1% Hmm... I guess that leaves Ron Paul to move up from Congress to the Oval Office. His son Rand can stay back to teach the new guys that replace the criminals what made him and Dad a part of that 1% of honest people left up there. I love the comparison.
