Active Duty Military too? Any other ideas? Well—I definitely support this message. And this one, which points out the fact that laws against “Insider Trading” don’t apply to members of Congress. In case you think that is a Slate Magazine smear campaign, Brett Arends of the Wall Street Journal will set you straight.

And here’s another idea worth trying. Sure, it’s a relatively small payroll, but if we have to tighten our belts, what better place to start than inside the Beltway? A Congressional pay cut makes more sense to me.

    Frank, you’re one fine, fine blogger. I’m proud of you.

  • Frank Weathers

Colbert is the Will Rogers of the 21st century as far as I’m concerned.
