Personal Gain Index- graciously provided by ballotpedia.org

“For the first time in history, the majority of America’s elected officials in Washington, D.C. are millionaires.[1][2] At the same time, 50 percent of Americans cannot afford to spend $5,000 in an emergency.[3]

The median American citizen[4] saw his or herhousehold net worth decrease from 2004 to 2012 by an annual rate of -0.94 percent, whilemembers of Congress experienced a median annual increase of 1.55 percent. Congress saw a total increase of $316.5 million in assets held by all members in the study.[5]

This page is about changes in net worth of U.S. Senators and Representatives during their time in office. The data goes from 2004 through 2012.

This is the first part of the Personal Gain Index. The Personal Gain Index is a four-part study that examines the extent to which members of the U.S. Congress have individually prospered during their tenure as public servants.”

Quote of the Day

“Forget the politicians. The politicians are put there to give you the idea you have freedom of choice. You don’t. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land, they own and control the corporations that’ve long since bought and paid for, the senate, the congress, the state houses, the city halls, they got the judges in their back pocket, and they own all the big media companies so they control just about all of the news and the information you get to hear. They got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want. They want more for themselves and less for everybody else. But I’ll tell you what they don’t want. They don’t want a population of citizens capable of critical thinking. They don’t want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking. They’re not interested in that. That doesn’t help them.”

The Sweet & Lovely People Appearing To Run The Federal Government

eric holder attorney general

Meet Eric Holder. Such a sweet guy..really. Almost became vice president to Obama. Settled for Attorney General. First cabinet member to be held in contempt of court. An extra in the FAST & FURIOUS, a huge supporter of the War on Terror. AND he loves him some drones.

martha martha johnson

Martha Martha Martha! This lady knows how to party! Why didn’t we get an invite to the Spa & Casino?!…Not nice Ms. Johnson. If she’s not ignoring complaints about illness and death (who cares about that anyway?)…or spending time visiting the local psychic she’s probably getting a henna tattoo on the beach. God knows she needs some sun.

Not “that there’s anything particularly wrong with her”

KentSamuel

The Honorable Samuel Kent. Look at that handsome devil. Whaaaat?! Convicted of sexual abuse. And STILL tried to keep his $163,000 salary for life. Who wouldn’t?

menendez-senator-robert.si

Uh-oh. It’s Senator Menendez! Allegedly solicits child prostitutes in the Dominican Republic. Who knows? Maybe that Dominican girl is just out to get him.

sixto

Felipe SIXto got off with SIX hundred thousand dollars. He DID say sorry though.

I could go on, and on. But even if the story DOES happen to make the news. Whoever went down for it, probably wasn’t the person responsible. Well…except Samuel. He was definitely responsible. 😉

So hate who you want, whether it be Obama, Kim Kardashian, or the girls in the Bad Girls Club.. they are all here to distract us from the real problem.
