    Can someone comment on why this is the business of the judiciary committee?
  2. :confused: :confused:

    Well, their job is to protect the good citizens of the USofA from evil doers of course.
    But first they have to put a finger on the evildoer.

    And to pound the table, preach and pontificate while the cameras are rolling.

    Makes them feel like they are actually doing something.

    A related comment ,dont think its any of thier business;
    & commented that to my 2 Senators.

    Less gov, less taxes, as pointed out to Senaort/DR Frist;
    Nissan Moters moved its headquarters to Nashvill TN for those 2 reasons..

    Nissan moved from CA to TN becuse of less gov regulation , less taxes:cool:
  5. Because Americans are angry, and everyone should go to jail. Find a bad guy to transfer one's own misery to someone else.

    Illegal aliens? Throw 'em in jail.

    Short sellers? Throw 'em in jail.

    Employers of illegal aliens? Throw 'em in jail.

    Sellers of marshmallow fluff? Throw 'em in jail.

    Seriously, the United States has turned into the most uptight country in the world. And we reelect these people -- time and time again. And yet, the polls show that voters are so unhappy with the job they're doing. But we keep sending 'em back. If I knew that Republicans would have turned into this, I would have gladly voided my whole voting record.

    I believe this is a result of the SAC Capital, Steve Cohen's hedge fund..and has to do with his relationship with some analyst firm in arizona...telling them what to say about certain stocks...
