Just a show for the sheep, nothing more
Kangaroo court for the win!!!
I hope that Congress finds Congress innocent of all wrong doing regarding insider trading.
Maybe we'll see Senators reviewing senator term limits next time to discover that they should do a study and examination on term limits.
The funny thing is that they still succeed in making each and everyone believe that this is a democracy... Ridiculous! This is a clear-cut Oligarchy much like Russia! Its actually disturbing how much Russia and the US have in common these days...
Both McCain and Levin, who indicated moments before that they would agree to passage of the measure by unanimous consent, voted against it in that roll-call vote.
I might have no problem with Congress trading on inside information with the caveat that they are required to make public the details of each and every trade.
This is just shocking. Who would have thought that esteemed politicians would be involved in this atrocious conduct? The ONLY way to solve this is for Obama to put his foot down and say that ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. We need to create an ANTI-CORRUPTION department, full of smart regulators, to oversee the rest of the government and ensure that there is NO corruption whatsoever.
Nancy Pelosi. Wife of the millionaire who trades off her inside info. Then Pelosi gets to put on her best face of indignation when caught red handed by 60 minutes
i still wouldnt fuck nancy pelosi for all the inside information in the world !!!!!!
Because you're too busy blowing Newt?
You owe her one,She fucked you up the ass,the least you could do is offer to return the favor.
Do her till you sea smoke.
anti-corruption? corruption by definition is government intrusion into free markets.....an anti-corruption dept would inherently be corrupt
MDB, I think that at this point focusing on this is just an attempt to discredit the political class which is working over time to save the problems of the US. This is the work of anarchists, hacks and lunatics to focus on these little things. In the meantime, some dangerous people are accumulating Gold in an attempt to destroy the US dollar, those are the real criminals and they should be prosecuted for their actions. Those people take advantage of the misery of the honest citizens putting their faith in the dollar the Fed and the Government, those people are a threat to national security and for their action, their Gold should be confiscated, as per the people in the Congress, the inflation plight which affecting the country could not have been forseen and those people are just trying like everyone else trying to make ends meet, who could blame them for that? The Gold owners are the real threat, who do they think they are to try accumulate power and money at the expense of others, the central bank?
You should be tried for treason.
I'd like to see a retraction of the disparaging remarks regarding lunatics.
Fuck you you piece of moldy shit.
Get off your fucking knees.
...sigh...look, as an NSA employee you should understand that next year they won't need you. They won't need any of your spook friends.
The squid has other plans for "patriots" for yourselves. At least you and I and everyone here should be properly destitute by the end of next summer.
Good luck "patriot".
Quite right. It's just that I hate to see corruption in government, however insignificant. But I know that the vast majority of politicians are caring and honest people, or they never would have been elected in the first place.
Are you trying to be funny or are you trying to be cute?
Oooh! Now, even the trolls are getting trolled! :>D
Thats called the CFTC we have one dunb ass troll.
When backed into a corner just change the rules!
What a fucking charade.
True, but the Russian news media does far less white washing than our own....CNBC has far out done what Pravda used to foist off as 'news' during the "cold war".
Congress needs a working moral compass for Christmas.
It's called a shovel, and only works when placed on the head.
It also works if you attempt to cram it into their mouth.
Well, this isn't a 'Blue-Ribbon Panel,' so you know that this is just for show, and we're SOL.
Presbycusis, the progressive loss of ability to hear high frequencies with increasing age, begins in early adulthood, but does not usually interfere with ability to understand conversation until much later. Although genetically variable it is a normal concomitant of aging and is distinct from hearing losses caused by noise exposure, toxins or disease agents. Thanks.
Survival skills were necessary for the sake of both self and community, food needed to be harvested and shelters needed to be maintained. There was little privacy in a community, and people were identified by their social role. Jobs were assigned out of necessity rather than personal choice. Thanks a lot.
The implement and enforce the law and provide services to the public, a government's bureaucracy, the military and police are vital. While all these organs of the state are creatures created and bound by law, an independent legal profession and a vibrant civil society inform and support their progress. Thanks.

Is this an Onion headline?
It's official, see how they got it called the STOCK Act?
There is a department in Congress just for naming shit correctly.
So, as a consultant to IAs, I have to freeze all activity in my brokerage accounts and/or get approval for all activity according to the IA's own compliance rules--otherwise I can consider myself fired.
Why can't the same rule apply to Congress?
akin to bedoun whore doing "background checks" on prospective "relationships" all while claiming not to be interested in $$$.
Some get what they deserve.....and some get free.......
There has to be a "hearing" to get rid of this shit. WTF.
And people wonder why gun sales are going up.
The very fact we must "debate" this shit is unreal!
Just having the temerity to EVEN consider if this should be allowed tells anyone with half a cerebral cortex that Dorothy and Toto are still in Oz.
WHY, on God's green earth, should you or I go to jail, for this same thing?.
But, for them it's HOKAY?.
No wonder we are melted down like Fukishima.
Outside of this blatantly illegal practice for the Serf's, do they not have FAR more important things to be doing?,like zeroing their scopes?.
They need to, as I told my Rep, the barbarians are preparing to storm your gates,wake up!.
Banana republic it is.
Putting on my Banana hammock as a show of solidarity.
I wish that these losers could look past their delusions of grandeur and see how voters see them.
Seppuku on the spot.
The voters for years now have asked their politicians to steal from one who has earned and give it to you that hasn't earned. And now those thieving politicians are stealing and giving it to themselves comes as a surprise? You socialist could never see this coming, blinded by your own sick desires, which are the same as those you vote for.
If it makes you feel better to think that my 12-14 hour days somehow are worthless, then have at it. The market thinks otherwise.
I've never taken food stamps or any of the other fine handouts, nor have I ever received a bailout of any kind. I'm net postive in the earning as opposed to taking category.
Not intending anything negative toward you, nothing you posted suggested your view on this matter, but was merely expanding on your point about how voters will look at these corrupt politicians.
The very fact that this is even a question speaks to how far gone this nation and its corrupt governance has become.
In a state where corruption abounds, laws must be very numerous.
