LOL lock HER up, and the others. Pure scum.

 

 

But hey, the headline is actually pretty misleading. Bitch bought DD! LOL. #metoo

 

Now, if she bought some nano cap like Lakeland, bring out the firing squad or the electric chair. More noise and headline grabbing than anything else, but at the same time, it shouldn't deter ones focus from what she and all these other assclowns did in the first place.

Well DD really didn’t work out as we all know. The problem with these type of issues is they we only see the tip of the iceberg. It would be quite easy for them to sell information in favor of campaign kickbacks etc. I wish these guys just had to file timely Form 4 in a timely manner just like insiders (which is what they are), but they doesn’t solve the kickback issue (selling political insider info to family of friends) which I suspect is very common, especially nowadays.

Well the most obvious fix(at least a partial fix) is to ban members of congress from owning stocks. Why is it that more than 50% of the major law firms and every one of the big 4 have either prohibited employees from owning individual stocks or have very in depth restriction and blackout lists? Yet these jokers can freely trade and/or pass information to their spouses to trade? You're a public servant supposedly, be forced to give something up. God knows you get a whole damn lot from "serving" as it is.

The hilarious part is that these people are insider trading but they're so bad at it. You know you a majour crisis is coming because the CIA told you so and you sell your shitty stocks and buy DD? Hey dumbass, in that situation sell you shitty stocks and go long treasuries. Not even Mother Jones will call insider trading on you when you're long the good red, white, and blue. Oh, and you've made more money. These people.....

 

P.S. To Gregmal, re your CNBC anchors post, this chick totally boned her way to a US Senator post.

I agree. I'd also like to see them limit how much money a former President can earn from speeches, books, etc after serving. Give them a nice pension, sure, but the White House should not be a key to wealth.

How they make money once they are out of power is of less concern than the obvious conflict of interest of a sitting billionaire POTUS signing legislation to reduce estate taxes.  His own family estate should pay the prior rate.

Sure I can sell all my investments, put everything in a blind trust, not hire anyone related to myself or my businesses...but hey maybe I erase every regulation impacting banks/energy/pharma and then 2 years later I get hired as a "consultant" at goldman/exxon/pfizer.

 

There's only so much you can do to stop employees stealing money from the register. The real prevention is hiring honest, ethical people in the first place.

Perhaps we should do both. Even when they're "out of power" they still have a lot of influence. Perhaps we should even limit the networth of Presidents. You would really only get people who were interested for the sake of the position then. Like if we said a President can't have a total net worth of over $5 million or $10 million (still quite well off) then we wouldn't have people like Trump run in the first place. Does anyone really think his love for country is more than love of himself? I'm sure we might miss out on a few good people though.

 

I totally think that all congress people should have to place their investments in a blind trust or wrap model where they have no discretion.

But really the list goes on and on for almost every congress man and woman.

 

 

 

Also something weird I saw for Maxine Waters (unless google maps is playing tricks on me.) Why does she own what looks to be a crack house in some back alley? Reported worth 1-15k?
