Wouldnt it be revealing, but certainly not shocking, to find out if our overspending, fiscally irresponsible politicians have left any of their dollars from their excessively high, taxpayer-funded salaries in the stock markets?
Surely they had forewarning from themselves about the disastrous downturn, almost $3 trillion since July 22, in the Dow and Nasdaq that would result from their brinksmanship.
How much of their portfolios was converted beforehand to gold bars and parked in Swiss bank vaults where it has probably at least quadrupled in value.
Maybe its even worth enough now to pay off our national debt? I wonder what Martha Stewart would think about such insider shenanigans. Those she committed were much more innocent and less egregious, but resulted in prison time.
Our jails arent large enough to hold all those politicians who belong there, at least not in the luxury to which they are accustomed, again at taxpayer expense.
