    Hillary Clinton's (Cattle) Future

    Summary
    Hillary turned $1k into almost $100k in 10 months.

    Can you beat her record?

    Best commodities ideas in today’s market.

    [​IMG]

    Hillary Clinton turned $1,000 into $99,540 in less than a year trading cattle futures.

    Two-thirds of her trades were profitable within a day. Ultimately, 80% of them were profitable. She typically made her investments right around the best prices of the day. Assuming that she was a legitimate market participant, Hillary Clinton may be one of the greatest commodities traders in world history. Today, her net worth is in excess of $30 million (her husband's is over $80 million) and she is able to harvest $275,000 per speech. Good for her. If someone wants to pay her over a quarter of a million dollars, she should take it. Coincidentally, I would charge the same fee to listen.

    Anyone else but Saint Clinton would have taken that uncanny ability and become a billionare in the private sector. Instead she's committed to public service. That's the sacrifice she's making for you. Any speculation above and beyond that is misogyny and bordering on racism.

    She did say that she wasn't a natural politician like her husband. Does that mean she's just not as good a liar.

    She had me fooled.

    Problem is that all of Congress has inside info but are allowed to use it and it's not insider trading. I think they voted on the law that it's not considered insider trading.

    Yep, the Democratic sum of 450,000 - per month. Not for trading expertise, but to "introduce" the firm to people.

    Not sure I have this right.

    I thought I heard/read that a congressman cannot be charged with insider trading? Is that true?

    Congressman on both sides are privy to non public information, and they can buy or dump stock according to this information.... Without being investigated?

    60 Minutes did a great segment on this practice, exposing various Republican legislators, including weepy orange-hued drunk John Boehner, who took advantage of inside information.

    Idiotically, they also tacked on an unrelated story about how Nancy Pelosi and her husband took part in an IPO, at the same time that certain legislation was before the House, though in that case their participation was not based on any inside information at all. Blatant example of "false balance" journalism at work: the Pelosi thing was nowhere near in the same league as what the Repubs in the piece were up to, but CBS must have been afraid that it would look like (sigh) "liberal bias" if their report only featured Repubs.

    Well gee, what if it was only Repubs, or overwhelmingly Repubs, who were up to these shenanigans? What's a news org supposed to do then?

    They ALL cash in financially on laws they pass. Boehner and Pelosi got caught at it a few years ago and passed a law exempting themselves from the laws they broke. So technically Hillary is doing nothing wrong (legally).

    If she were that good, she never would have gone into politics.
