    Remember the STOCK Act, the new law that would prevent Congress critters from insider trading? Remember how it was going to stop all that Democrats and bad stuff? Remember how I scoffed? It seems that 68 Democrats and 62 Republican conresscritters are still getting rich off of investments in stocks they are voting on.

    Don't worry though, not only is it legal, every single one of them assures us that the timing is just a big coincidence.

    When they passed it as easily as they did, I knew there was a back door to this.
    It just isn't the democrats, the republicans are just as guilty.

    Bipartisan consensus always scares me, it is just a way for politicians to pretend they care about the rest of the country. The political class, the 0.0001%, run this country and think the rest of us are idiots.

    They think that because we act like idiots. People care more about the letter than the person.

    They can kiss the moral high ground 'goodbye' on this one. Frankly, I am sick to the back teeth with the corruption in our government.
