    This is about how politicians from both sides of the aisle trade on inside information. Why there's not been an SEC investigation is beyond me.

    Insider trading is crime.

    No arrests.

    Yeah no shit....funny how it didn't even get exposed until Obama took office. I'm hoping they are working on it...but the cynical side of me thinks that it would involve so many people that it would cripple our government.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. Dems and Reps are the 2 sides to the coin of politics. No matter which side comes up, it's still politics, it's still the same coin.
    The ONLY reason I will vote for Romney is SCOTUS appointments.... unfortunately...
