From the Pitiful to the Transparent

Considering that we are in America, THIS is just plain unbelievable:

The Senate on Thursday passed legislation barring lawmakers from using insider information for personal profit, sending the bill to the White House.


Congress passing a law prohibiting themselves from commiting felonies!

Come on, now… They need to pass a law making it illegal for them to break the law?

We’ve all known about the insider trading for awhile, and many of us condemned them for it, but are they such natural crooks that they need a law requiring them to obey an existing law in order to keep themselves “honest”?

Sheesh! These people really need to be voted out, every last one of them, at the first available opportunity…


Oh, and in the area of transparency:

How about this?

“I appreciate [my colleague's] leadership on helping us honor what our founders put forth in our founding documents, which is life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness,” Pelosi told her colleagues, citing the Declaration of Independence. “And that is exactly what the Affordable Care Act helps to guarantee.”

Who says the Democrats are not being transparent as advertised? I’d say Pelosi’s speech in the video makes it quite transparent that she and her liberal elitist ilk believe we are all very, very stupid.

After 236 years as the greatest nation in history, is this what our government’s leadership comes down to?
