*..TIRED of IT!!... By sky_s_clear . 3 years 5 months ago .

I am SO Blamed tired of the Corruption we are dealing with, yet have to as a Citizen.. Follow the rules? WHY? There a different standard for those that have power to make or change the rules.. than for those the rules are made to guide us. I have a Senator and a Congressman that have made the same investments i did, but.. on the same stocks we owned that went Bankrupt.. they show a loss far greater than i with LESS SHARES owned!..?? .. I See the Attorney General Owned Fanny Mae in 2007, but he sold his shares i week before they were investigated.. No one else see THAT? I also know that NEIL BUSH owned shares of WORLD COM.. But did not have to declare his SELLING of over 1.7 Mill.. BEFORE IT WENT BK!! I See that the Gov. of Ill. In 2001, bought shares of Halliburton.. But, Halliburton had no Contracts in IRAQ..at the time of his purchase of those shares , Months later.. Came the War.. and Halliburton had all the Contracts they wanted.. no other Bids allowed! ( Cheney's Company) .. I know of Senator of Penn. that voted against the war in Iraq.. Later, after his dissenting vote..Kept his Portfolio open under his Wife's name for WAR GSA Contracts. I know of Congresspersons.. who Voted against the UTR..that engaged in frivolous votes that allowed the change in Status of the NAKED SHORT Period to be Delivered.. 2007 and 2008.. Yet now, Are making total opposing statements about their votes!! I know enough to LIGHT that TORCH.. AND shout 'WE SHALL OVER COME'.. As I Set Wall Street Ablaze with the Truth!

.. * UTR.. Up Tic Rule. set in place in 1929 to stop the market abuse that crashed it. Taken out in Bush's Reign, as the Glass Steagall Act was removed just months b4 he took office.. Again, another Act to abolish Collusion in the Market by keeping the Banks Regulated! .. a MUST in this time where Stock Trading is being Ruled by the Banks. Banks are no different now than the 'HOUSE' Advantage in a Vegas Casino. ... ..M.

Post from 2 years ago yet nothing has changed in Washington. Insider trading is still legal for congressmen just not legal for us citizens. That's because congress makes different rules for us than for them. We would go to jail. This is how congress has gotten so rich and powerful and why they won't change anything. They just feed us lines to make us think they are doing something but they have done nothing. Dodd-Frank bill does nothing. It's just an appearance of something to make us think they are fixing things but in reality they will never do anything that would take away their power to get wealthier and wealthier. We need to get rid of the congressmen that passed the laws that benefitted congress and the banks and caused our financial meltdown and bring in new blood that will serve us, the people that hire them. Get your state and district candidates running for office today to promise to get rid of the laws that led to these criminal acts.

There are other things we need to demand of them besides the up-tic rule. The most important is Glass-Steagle reinstated. These things started in the 1990s, yet the same congressmen that changed these laws are still sitting in congress 20 years later, multiplying their wealth and power and hurting the rest of us and the economy.

I used to work on Wall Street in a lowly capacity.Nevertheless,I knew many traders,tax attorneys,and investment bankers.Not because I ever approached them in any way.They approached me-because they wanted to tell someone about all the weird stuff that they knew and talk about rumours about weird things that seem to happen to people on Wall Street.They wanted to talk to a person who was not stupid,but safely inconsequential-a person such as I was at the time.They told me some things that made my hair stand on end.Some of those stories turned out to be true;in the case of the worst stuff,the truth is not likely to ever be known.Wall Street is a scary place.

That would be a lie martha. It was sent to you by a long time forum troll known as trashy - carl is just one of it's sockpuppet names. Feel free to disregard such trash from trashy.

[-] 0 points by marthafromOTS (-78) 1 year ago

So you're not an Obama supporter? Thanks for the heads up about thrasy.

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Do you have something against supporters of Pres Obama?

[-] 0 points by marthafromOTS (-78) 1 year ago

I'm an activist for OWS so I'm very much against Obama, but I have nothing against others who which to support him. I was asking because of the link.

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Oh. I remember the post the link went to very well. It has been edited a bit. Initially it was sexually offensive, which is why it was correctly shadow banned..

Where did you say you got the link?

[-] 0 points by marthafromOTS (-78) 1 year ago

Got it about 30mins ago. You sure it was edited? The posting date is not even an hour old.

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (33128) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

I wonder how trashy got your address?

[-] -1 points by marthafromOTS (-78) 1 year ago

He wrote to me about my OTS post. Said he was a friend of Odin.

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (33128) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

U R fast on the uptake martha - you posted at 4:21 and I just had to look you 1st commented to me 33 minutes ago. Impressive.

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (33128) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

A PM on your profile page?

[-] -2 points by marthafromOTS (-78) 1 year ago

Yes. Are all moderators here so inquisitive? lol I have to run... I have a meeting and the bus is just about to arrive. Later.

[-] 2 points by DKAtoday (33128) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Who said I was a moderator?

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Where did you say you got it from? Carl?

It looks like the one that was correctly shadow banned for including suggestions of homosexuality with Pres Obama.

Do you hate Pres Obama that much like the original (frequently banned) poster?

[-] 0 points by marthafromOTS (-78) 1 year ago

I'm an OWS activist, so yeah, I hate all the 1%. I dedicated a year to fight them!

[-] 1 points by VQkag2 (16478) 1 year ago

Most of the people I meet at OWS are not really hateful. Most are progressive people filled with the kind of compassion that drives us to care for our fellow citizens.

And although we rail against the 1% we also recognize it is only a term. Believe it or not there are "millionaires who support the 99%". You haven't heard of them? We don't hate all people in the1% do we.? In fact why would we hate anyone? Seems kinda counterproductive.

But ok you hate Pres Obama enough to send images suggesting homosexual behavior? Because he is in the 1%?

[-] 1 points by DKAtoday (33128) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

No I am not an obama supporter - and that's trashy martha - trashy the troll shill quisling sellout deceiver and many other names all which lead back to trashy.

[-] 0 points by marthafromOTS (-78) 1 year ago

Alrighty ;-) I'll watch out for him. What are the signs?

You're a moderator right?

[-] 0 points by DKAtoday (33128) from Coon Rapids, MN 1 year ago

Well April is one of his alter ego's - so I or anyone here with any experience on the forum could say - be careful - as he is a game player - nasty - game player. Loves misinformation deceit divisiveness - you know a real troll.

[-] 0 points by marthafromOTS (-78) 1 year ago

I always had a kick for bad boys! My first bf had a Harley. He sounds like a real adventure. Don't worry, I know who to handle those type of men.
