1. Get elected to Congress.
2. Because Congress and Big Business/Wall Street/The Military-Industrial Complex are like *this* (holding up crossed fingers), find out all kinds of insider information.
3. Buy or sell stock (or land, etc) as appropriate, using said insider information.
4. Make large profit.
5. Repeat as needed.
I do not understand why Congress’s insider trading is not illegal; I do not understand who could think this is okay; and I do not understand why we are not out there tonight riding these people out of Washington on rails.
