A Modest Proposal

Posted on January 30, 2012 by


The Senate on Monday voted 93-2 to move forward with the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge (STOCK) Act, legislation that would prevent members of Congress from making investments and trades based on non-public information.

Is there something in a congressman’s job description that requires him (or her) to come up with some dumb-ass name for every bill, specifically so that it can be turned into a cutesy acronym? If so, we need that job description changed, pronto. And if not, we should be allowed to shoot them.

What we really need is an entirely unique bill; one that’s never before been considered, but which is grossly overdue:

Stop Harassing Innocent Taxpayers. Let it hit the fan.
