Holding Out “Hope”

The Democrats, who are desperately trying to keep a happy face while being constantly confronted with the dire political circumstances of their own making, have just about emptied their Bolshevik bag of tricks. With each passing day, yet another of the “reasons” for the impending implosion of the demented Democrats makes its way into the news. Today we learned that there are 41.8 million Americans (some legal, some not..) receiving food stamps. There is no such thing as a “free lunch” and those who have to PAY for those 41.8 million (and so many others..) “free lunches” have just about had it with the Democrats. That is why I am holding out “hope” for “change”..

The good news for America is that the patented lies of today from the liberal Democrats aren’t making any headway when it comes to those voters that they have lost based upon their lies of the past.. All of the “feel good fascism” of 2008 has been eroded by double digit unemployment, “historic” deficits and more and more and more taxes to pay for the Democrat’s benevolence.. A number of the “victims” of Obama and the Democrats are those that were directly lied to in 2008 and beyond. They seem to be having a Howard Beale “I’m mad as Hell and I’m not going to take it anymore” sort of moment.. That is why we should hold out “hope”..

If we can, lets try to formulate a kind of Democratic syllogism. As of this writing and unless ACORN is doing the counting, whites are still make up the majority of Americans citizens. Obama and the Democrats have targeted the majority of American citizens and the vast majority of that majority inhabits the middle class. Thanks to Obama and the Democrats, “white flight” is back in style again..

According to the article, “AP-GfK Poll: Working-class whites shun Dems” (ap news my way dot com) we read that, “working-class whites are flocking to Republicans..” The article identified this group as “long wary of Democrats..” If they were “long wary” why did they fall for the flotsam and jetsam of the Obama shampaign of 2008? Maybe because an imbecilic UNION told them to? It takes quite a lot to awaken such marinated lemmings and Obama and the Democrats have miraculously done so..

“Whites without a four year degree (AKA: those unencumbered by the leftist indoctrination lovingly provided by the universities..) prefer GOP candidates by twice the margin of the last two elections, a 22 percent gap..” This “group” makes up a large percentage of the blue collar “middle class”. This “group” understands that they are all just one more “stimulus” away from being part of the nearly forty-two MILLION recipients of food stamps thanks to the “cures” prescribed by Obama and the Democrats.. This “group” is finally starting to understand just how much THEY will be paying for the Democrat’s devious destructiveness..

If the LOWEST class were on the ball, they too would be miffed at the “Great Welfarian” and his Depression. Here are just two examples as to why they should be. First, Obama RAISED the basic tax rate paid by the lowest class from ten percent to fifteen percent. Secondly, the MANDATED Obama “health scare” insurance payments made by the employers of those who work within the lowest class will be added to those employees W-2 forms as INCOME. Welcome to the “middle class”, oh ye of the paper hat at the drive though window.. And by the way, start paying your totalitarian tithes because the “evil rich corporation” that you work for doesn’t have to.. (Note the “foreshadowing” in that sentence..)

One of the “Big Lies” perpetrated by Obama and his Collectivist Crew is the myth that they are out there working for the “little guy”. They verbally bash the “rich” yet the “rich” who nuzzle the nefarious nincompoop are given a free pass. As “crass separatists”, this ruse is important to the Democrats so that they can fool the middle class who are actually the TARGETS of the Obama tax grab.

Another Obama example, did you know that “rich” corporations like Mc Donald’s and several teachers UNIONS have been given “waivers” from having to pay into the Obama Health Scare? There is no such WAIVER for the middle class.. As a matter of fact the Obama tax hikes, coming soon to a paycheck near you, eliminate a number of deductions including those for families who have “special needs” children. Remember, the Democrats and Obama are helping the “little guy”..

Those who are now flying the Obama coop are “uneasy with the young president’s activist governing.. Their wariness is reinforced by a prolonged economic funk that has disproportionately hurt the middle class..” Politics is a game of “results” especially when you assumed office based on the lofty claims of being able to cure that which you and your collectivist contemporaries have personally created. Obama’s “results”? In a nutshell, Carter looks like a supply-sider and Carter finally has someone to look down upon when it comes to the pecking order of the worst presidents of all time..

The “middle class” has been targeted in both directions by Obama and the Democrats. They have intentionally destroyed the jobs around the middle class and the Democrats have “bailed out” their banking and finance buddies right from the wallets of the middle class.. The middle class has always had to “reward” the Democrat’s voter base, the lowest class, but under Obama the “rich” who supported Obama have been “rewarded” by the middle class as well.. This is being done in order to try to create the largest group of Americans EVER who have no choice but to turn to the pathetic progressive government for their sustenance.. Its just a bit more of that “historic change” that Obama promised..

As well, Obama is taking a page from the Clinton workbook as he is playing funny with the numbers when it comes to who the “rich” exactly are.. Another Obama example, the AMT (Alternative Minimum Tax) now effects millions of middle class families, middle class families that this TAX was NEVER intended to penalize..

“Over half say he (Obama) doesn’t understand ordinary American’s problems..” On the contrary, he doesn’t understand their RESPONSE to their problems, problems that he and the Democrats have intentionally created for them. He though that the middle class would willingly become part of the hand out machine that Democratic politics has become over the last fifty years. He truly “understands” the problems of the middle class because he is responsible for them.. By the way, don’t “ordinary Americans” have guys like Tony Rezko landing them prime multi million-dollar real estate deals for them? Don’t “ordinary Americans” take vacations every twelve days paid for by someone else? Don’t “ordinary Americans” have a staff of over twenty people who wait on their wife hand and foot?

“Real” Americans have had it with Obama and even if the Democrats resort to their cowardly cries of “racism” directed at those who have soured on the Marxist mead offered up by Obama, their days are numbered and they know it. “The country hasn’t come up the way it should have under Obama”.. So says a reformed Kool Aid drinker and bus driver Barbara Schwickrath who certainly sounds as though she has an axe or three to grind.. They were “promised” the world, they were foolish enough to believe it and now they are embarrassed about being put into short pants.. Lawrence Ramsey said it best, “Democrats are more apt to mess with the middle class and take our money..” Obama’s victims have had an “awakening” from the catatonic state of November 2008..

The Democrats are furiously pumping the bellows trying to ignite the embers of a fire long since extinguished.. Democratic “strategist” Dave Beattie claims that this should be a “choice between two candidates, not a referendum on do you like where things are or not, because no one like where things are..” Unbelievable.. Just who is responsible for “where things are”? Since “no one likes where things are”, shouldn’t we then throw out those who are RESPONSIBLE for “where things are”?

Targeting the middle class was a calculated risk that was supposed to have been overcome merely by the dynamic personality of Obama powered by his telepromters.. Targeting the middle class is the foundation of socialism, thus its appeal to the Obama caliphate. Now the middle class is targeting the Democrats. With all of that said, we are truly holding out “hope” for “change” in November..

  1. Family,

    First off, kudos to Stitch who was the first person I ever heard refer to the Democratic base as “welfarians”..

    Second, to Mark. Sorry but when I made some timely corrections to the initial article, your comment disappeared. Thanks WordPress!!

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  2. Why don’t libertarians and conservatives shove the “It’s Bush’s fault” down these idiots throat in regard to the housing bubble burst – it all goes back to 1968 when Congress first forced the lending institutions to reduce their standards. I blame all the politicians in DC, both Dem and Repub. They are supposed to look out for both the country and the people and have done neither.

  3. You are right on…Rush covered the waiver deal and he mentions it could only happen in a election year. Well it ain’t gonna work cause we are a lot smarter than that!

  4. A good article Larry. It is too bad many Americans were catatonic in November 2008. Now we all lose. It is said experience comes from bad judgement. Americans have gotten a major dose of experience and I hope the lessson is remembered for a long , long time.

  5. JR NOT OF DALLAS

    Larry, Great to see you being active again with your wordsmith brilliance.
    From the State of Taxachusetts it is wonderful to look forward to NOVEMBER 2
    Big Ears buddy DEVILLE THE GOVERNOR hopefully is on his way out along with BARNEY CRY BABY FRANK
    Also several congressmen such as MCGOVERN,TIERNEY SONGAS
    etc
    Just starting to read HOW EVIL WORKS BY DAVID KUPELIAN
    He spells out the lies made by POLS and the crisis generated for
    panic by the DEMS
    We must stay alert and push all of our family and friends to VOTE
    NEVER AGAIN NEVER GIVE UP NEVER GIVE IN
    BUY GOLD AND LEAD

  6. Larry,
    Excellent! With guys like you keeping the heat on, come November these scumbucket liberals and their media lapdogs can go pound sand until sparks fly out their ass.I hope we shove these lying traitors so far down whatever shithole they oozed from that they NEVER AGAIN find their way back!
    As for you, Larry, I think as the Glorious Day of Castration draws nearer,
    the fire that I know burns red-hot within you has erupted into your writings,
    as I have never read any articles by ANYONE with more conviction and certitude than your last several postings.
    You truly are one of a kind, Larry, and the Family is grateful for it.

  7. JR,
    ESPECIALLY LEAD!!!
    NEVER, NEVER, NEVER AGAIN!
    After we put these puppies down, we must be eternally vigilant against their return; for return they shall, just as the plague they are.

  8. What needs to happen is for the lessons learned from Obama’s Reign of Terror is that not only is the lesson learned, but that it sticks. While I understand how whites fell for the Hope and Change schtick, afterall both Clinton and Carter ran on such platforms and won based on the fact that the people were disgusted with the performance of the Republicans (Bush 41, and Nixon respectively). What we need to understand is that Obama is a 1960s era Anti-Colonialist, whom sees is as his mission to knock down the oppessors (chiefly whites, but the rich are the key targets) and raise up the oppressed. While he certainly has much in common with the American and European radicals and Marxists, the roots of his politics really lie with his father and the struggles of the Kenyan people to overthrow British colonial authority.

    No matter how one slices it, WE are the targets of Obama and his minions. This is a class war between those whom work and those whom sponge. The makers of wealth vs. the takers of wealth. This goes beyond Red vs. Blue, Dems vs. Repubs; its the Progressives vs. those of us whom wish to live in the absense of a Nanny State. We have impress upon our neighbors that this election is likely our last shot at stemming the tide. To anybody whom voted for Obama, ask them how that ‘Hope and Change’ is working for them, and then ask which do they prefer ‘to live as a free people or be a slave?’ If the Obama Zombie is still too stupid to get the point, we should wish for them that the chains of their servitude rest lightly upon their backs, and allow them to wallow in the stye of their own ignorance.

  9. Phil,

    The real damage was done during the Clinton years when Barney Frank led the charge/prance towards “fairness” in lending. Barney was dating the fellow at Fannie Mae who benefitted financially and the rest was based upon some alleged “discrimination”.

    There was and should be “discrimination” in lending. If you do not have the ability to pay back a loan you are NOT entitled to one. That is why there are rental properties available.

    The Democrats to a priviledge and made it a “right” and that is really where the housing stumble began.

    Bush and Mc Cain wanted to reel both Fannie and Freddie in YEARS ago but Barney stood in the way saying that there weren’t ANY problems with either program..

    The idea of “politics” as a career is what needs to be castrated.

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  10. renoman,

    It will probably happen AFTER the election if the Democrats manage to hold on to any lead in both Houses.

    It will be done under the cover of darkness when no one is watching, it won’t be done during an election year when they are struggling already.

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  11. JR,

    Thanks for the kind words.

    The Democrats CANNOT function without creating “panics”.

    Their politics are based upon emotions as opposed to logic. NO logical person alive believes in the Globalony Warming nonsense as just ONE example..

    Just fill in any liberal “panic” and suddenly the emasculated left crawls to their Democratic governmental saviors for salvation..

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  12. Sling,

    I am grateful to commenters like YOU who keep the spirit alive.

    Reading is one thing, when someone adds their own feelings and thoughts, THEN the conversation comes alive. Thank you.

    Never give in, never give up and never again.

    Make it a November to Remember.

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  13. G.,

    Smoking hot comment.. Wheww..

    Clinton won due to Ross Perot. The votes Perot “bought” were siphoned from Bush. If Carter was the best the liberals had to offer then the world of Democratic politics was certainly desperate..

    “Freedom” is an abstraction to the liberal Democratic base. As long as they are willing to vote Democratic, they will and have given up all of their freedoms voluntarily. The Democratic base can’t be at fault for their miscues and foibles when they aren’t responsible for anything, right?

    Involutary servitude doesn’t pay that well but it pays well enough for the Democratic base to sign on.. It REALLY pays well for the Democrats who skim a health sum off of the top of the stipends that they lovingly hand out to the chattel at their feet..

    Thanks as always,

    Larry

  14. If anyone was watching Glenn Beck tonight, the Poem he was reading from Rudyard Kipling was so appropriate… Wow!
    If I may, this is a beautiful Poem and one we need to remember.

    The Gods of the Cobybook Headings

    AS I PASS through my incarnations in every age and race,
    I make my proper prostrations to the Gods of the Market Place.
    Peering through reverent fingers I watch them flourish and fall,
    And the Gods of the Copybook Headings, I notice, outlast them all.

    Remember in November!

    We were living in trees when they met us. They showed us each in turn
    That Water would certainly wet us, as Fire would certainly burn:
    But we found them lacking in Uplift, Vision and Breadth of Mind,
    So we left them to teach the Gorillas while we followed the March of Mankind.

    We moved as the Spirit listed. They never altered their pace,
    Being neither cloud nor wind-borne like the Gods of the Market Place,
    But they always caught up with our progress, and presently word would come
    That a tribe had been wiped off its icefield, or the lights had gone out in Rome.

    With the Hopes that our World is built on they were utterly out of touch,
    They denied that the Moon was Stilton; they denied she was even Dutch;
    They denied that Wishes were Horses; they denied that a Pig had Wings;
    So we worshipped the Gods of the Market Who promised these beautiful things.

    When the Cambrian measures were forming, They promised perpetual peace.
    They swore, if we gave them our weapons, that the wars of the tribes would cease.
    But when we disarmed They sold us and delivered us bound to our foe,
    And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “Stick to the Devil you know.”

    On the first Feminian Sandstones we were promised the Fuller Life
    (Which started by loving our neighbour and ended by loving his wife)
    Till our women had no more children and the men lost reason and faith,
    And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “The Wages of Sin is Death.”

    In the Carboniferous Epoch we were promised abundance for all,
    By robbing selected Peter to pay for collective Paul;
    But, though we had plenty of money, there was nothing our money could buy,
    And the Gods of the Copybook Headings said: “If you don’t work you die.”

    Then the Gods of the Market tumbled, and their smooth-tongued wizards withdrew
    And the hearts of the meanest were humbled and began to believe it was true
    That All is not Gold that Glitters, and Two and Two make Four
    And the Gods of the Copybook Headings limped up to explain it once more.

    As it will be in the future, it was at the birth of Man
    There are only four things certain since Social Progress began.
    That the Dog returns to his Vomit and the Sow returns to her Mire,
    And the burnt Fool’s bandaged finger goes wabbling back to the Fire;

    And that after this is accomplished, and the brave new world begins
    When all men are paid for existing and no man must pay for his sins,
    As surely as Water will wet us, as surely as Fire will burn,
    The Gods of the Copybook Headings with terror and slaughter return!

  15. We must get these idiots out of power before they totally destroy our country. If the Progressives want to live in Socialism… let them move to Europe, or China, or Venesuela, or Africa! WE DON’T DO THAT HERE!!!!

  16. I really wish I could be optomistic about the coming elections. BHO and his crooks with ACORN proved two years ago that voter fraud could swing any election. Right now, there are thousands of ACORN scum all over America busy filling out fraud ballots and there will be many more fraud ballots than there are good Americans so we will have a very difficult problem to overcome.

  17. Thousands of hours and reams of paper have been expended aliterating the problems with the Kingdom of Barry. When will you people who have an audience finally talk about the only thing required to stop this craziness.
    SOETORO IS NOT ELIGIBLE TO HOLD THE OFFICE OF PRESIDENT!!
    The Declaration of Independence and Constitution outline the procedures that are required to eliminate all the happenings inflicted upon us by this Usurper and repair the Administration of the People’s business.
    Now, even the military judges are cowing to the fed and not allowing discovery for Lt.Col. Lakin. In case you don’t know he is defending his sterling military career against claims by a fraudulent and traitorous administration the he is guilty. They havent said of what, entirely, just that he won’t play the Bilderberger game. Rather than waste more time describing what is happening, let’s make public the criminality our country is now suffering due to the communist folks in his administration having Soetoro’s ear. He needs the power! He has to have it! His narcissism won’t allow less power for his anti-colonialism mindset which is now aimed at the US. He must be charged, prosecuted and emprisoned immediately or we will become an over-populated Zimbabwe. The biggest 3rd world country in the world.

  18. Thank you, family. I really needed your positive postings and Larry’s excellent wordsmithing. I grow weary at times and at other times steam comes from my ears, yet I plug along and pass along these wonderful words with my 2 cents added in hopes I will find fertile soilf for these words. How rapidly NOvember approaches. Tonight as I was getting the house locked up, I noticed a political sign on my lawn facing the school. I inquired is my wife had given permission for its placement and she said no. So I went out and threw the Democrat sign in the gutter. The gall! He’s my friend, but we differ radically on some issues and full disclosure.

    Phil and Larry, I agree whole heartedly regarding discrimination when disbursing funds. If you can’t pay for it, you don’t get it. That is one lesson I learned from my father – – pay your bills. It takes years to build credit but only months to destroy it. Raising seven wonderful kids wasn’t easy, but the reward is too big to measure because I get payback every day. Maybe we went to bed a little hungry some times, but we paid our bills first.

    My second cousin told me a story many years ago and I often think of it. It seems his family was having a BBQ as was the neighbor next door. His son kept watching the neighbors and dad was waiting for the question. But the question really threw him. His son turned to him and said “I guess they are poor next door. They can’t afford to have their meat ground up.”

  19. JR NOT OF DALLAS, I got that book yesterday, could hardly put it down once I began reading. I’m going to pass it on to as many that I can convince to read it.

  20. JR NOT OF DALLAS

    Richard
    May the good Lord take a liking to you and your Family.
    I too had seven children who have bestowed another 14 grandchildren
    on my bride and me.It also is great pleasure having so many around to
    fill my later years with JOY also had soup over potatoes as a main
    course at the dinner table but all sevived and are doing well. I
    really enjoy your posts.

    Gina The book is a tough one to put aside now and then. Have just finished the section about child abuse by teachers HORRIBLE

  21. Larry and family, This post is electric! I love everyone’s enthusiasim. Don’t you just feel the momentum now after two depressing years?

    I have a heads up on Obama’s new book. Why Are My Father’s Dreams Causing Nightmare? Or, “Who Knew Destruction Would Take This Long?”

    Did the Fabian Society have a time limit?
    I’m sure other family members have good book names for him or Moochellle.

  22. I’m worried about corruption again and with Department of Justice Voting section refusing to remove dead and illegal voters from the states rolls when federal prosecutor J. Christian Adams testified under oath July 6 before the U.S. Civil Rights Commission, he attended a November 2009 meeting in which Deputy Assistant Attorney General Julie Fernandes discussed the federal law that requires that local officials purge illegitimate names from their voter rolls. Adams swore that Fernandes told Voting Section prosecutors: “We have no interest in enforcing this provision of the law. It has nothing to do with increasing turnout, and we are just not going to do it.”

    We are already seeing the signs here in Alabama, for every dead Mobile resident, their name is given to an illegal living here. We don’t expect our mayor will follow the federal laws either. It’s sickening to see just how brazen and audacious they have become about cheating as if it’s their right to cheat. Some have been caught trying to register voters with fake identification and guess what; they were registering as a Democrat. I’m wondering if this is part of Obama’s “Organizing for America” group along with ACORN, SEIU, AFL-CIO etc. They all really excel at corruption, lying, cheating, and their audacity to think they have a right to cheat, lie and steal an election.

    I’ve read online that this is also happening in other “red” states. Texas is having the same trouble as is Mississippi and Oklahoma.

    Here is more information on this topic:

    So far, the Voting Section is living down to Julie Fernandes low expectations. If not willful disregard for federal statutes, only powerful sedatives could explain how federal prosecutors could rest comfortably through these simmering examples of voter-roll adulteration. They are disgusting.

    •The U.S. Election Assistance Commission reports that Arkansas, Colorado, Maryland, Massachusetts, Oregon, and Tennessee expunged precisely zero dead voters from their rolls between 2006 and 2008. The same applies to numerous counties in Alabama, Rhode Island, and Virginia. Either these places are experiencing an explosion in immortality, or they are violating federal law.

    •Several Iowa and North Carolina counties feature more registered voters than live, voting-age adults. This condition plagues at least a dozen counties each in Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, South Dakota, and Texas. Registered voters equal 104 percent of Baltimore County, Maryland’s voting-adult population; and, according to documents that Adams filed, 113 percent in Lincoln County, West Virginia. Alaska and Michigan’s statewide figures are 102 percent.

    •As Adams explains, July alone featured vote-fraud investigations, indictments, and convictions in: Atlantic City, New Jersey; Troy, New York; Canton, Mississippi; Brooks County, Georgia; Independence, Louisiana; Dillon County, South Carolina; Adair County, Oklahoma; Muncie, Indiana; and especially Minnesota (Al Franken Country), “where there have been dozens of felon voting indictments arising out of the closely contested 2008 elections.”

    •Duplicate registration plagues metropolitan areas that straddle state lines. In such spots,
    people may reside in one state and work or study in another. Greater St. Louis, Kansas City, Memphis, and Cincinnati occupy this category, as do New York and Florida — to which tax-burdened New Yorkers often escape.

    •Tarrell Campbell pleaded guilty in July for his actions in November 2008. He voted in Illinois (where he was in college), drove across the Mississippi River, and then voted again in St. Louis, his hometown. Campbell claimed that when he voted in Missouri, he had forgotten his vote in Illinois.

    •Anne Enochs, a 69-year-old Memphis art teacher, was arrested in July for double voting — by accident, she claimed. (YEAH, right)

    Such unacceptable electoral conditions could help candidates win, thanks to graveyard landslides. However, even barring that, America should leave disheveled voter rolls to banana republics.

    While the Voting Section naps, J. Christian Adams barely has time to blink. He has warned 16 states of potential lawsuits because they are violating the National Voter Registration Act. Section 7 of this 1993 “Motor Voter” law expands suffrage by requiring states to enroll voters at motor-vehicle bureaus, welfare agencies, and other government offices. Simultaneously, Section 8 requires states to update their records so that only eligible voters — not cadavers — can cast ballots.

    They also found that some students are registered in different states. They live in one state and voted in the primaries there and then voted again, where they attend college in that states primary. Therefore, if the democratically controlled Department of Justice and the clearly anti-white hate filled Department heads of Eric Holder and his deputy attorney general Julie Fernandes; we can expect only another tainted election.

    There should be an interstate computers that show crossed registration of someone’s name that should accompany a photo ID. Nine to 10 they are voting Democrat. The Democrats can never run fair elections without cheating through fake ID, bribing people and voter intimidation. They must be so proud, huh?

    I’ve been really busy doing research on Lisa Murkowski, who is so corrupt you wouldn’t believe just how corrupt this primadonna believes she entitled to break election laws because of who she is. Why doesn’t the Federal Election Commission do something, like deny a corrupt politician cannot run once it’s made clear they broke the law of this nation? We keep re-electing the same corrupt politicians and they shouldn’t be allowed to run once it’s been determined they broke election laws. We wouldn’t be struck with Lisa, Charlie Rangel, Maxine Waters, Laura Richardson, Mitch McConnell, Max Baucus, John Ensign, Robert Menendez, Sanchez sisters (for embezzlement), Allan Mollohan, Gary Miller, Jesse Jackson, Jr. (chip off the old block), Pete Stark to name just a few.

    The corruption isn’t just related to politicians but now bureaucrats as well. Veronique Pluviose-Fenton a member of the Homeland Security office was terminated because certain requests made by lobbyist that she followed through with in exchange to politician favors. Delegate Donna
    Christensen because she attended a trip with improper sponsors that were not disclosed on pre-trip/post-travel Disclosures. You’d be surprised at how many are overlooked by the Ethics Committee. Congress is making behind the scene deal with foreign countries like Argentina’s bureaucrats directly to a politician who sends them on to the correct lobbyist that will end up benefiting the corrupt politician, but they are going through the backdoor instead of the front one.

    There’s so much more I could write a book. They all seem too happy and content in their jobs and feel they should be entitled to do these illegal things because of who they are and what they do. Politicians only think about themselves and what kind of legacy they will leave once they leave the government job and what they will do after they leave and not go to prison for breaking the laws of this nation.

    Don’t cry for Harry Reid he already has his next job all sewn up. He will join his son’s DC lobbyist firm where they will use his former position to continue bribing and arm twisting his former colleagues in Congress.

    Did you know? It’s generally legal for members of Congress and their aides to profit from insider information gleaned during the course of their jobs. The watchdog group Public Citizen is promoting a bill just reintroduced by Reps. Brian Baird, D-WA, Louise Slaughter, D-NY, and Tim Walz, D-MN, that would prohibit anyone on the Hill from using privileged information obtained through work for personal financial gain. Craig Holman, a government-affairs lobbyist for Public Citizen, thinks that the temptation could grow, especially among congressional staffers. “With the federal government moving in to become, actually, a controlling partner in many of the financial services companies and firms, it just makes it the right opportunity for pushing this bills. It’s very likely that we’re going to hear various scandals happening, because of this very close relationship between Wall Street and the federal government. A 2004 study by Georgia State University found that senators’ investment returns were 25 percent higher on average than those of most investors.

    It’s clear the laws in this Country need to change and we cannot count on our lawmakers to do it to try to make them honest (there is a oxymoron in there somewhere).

  23. I appreciate your writings.
