M. McPherson: End double standards


It takes an arrogant man to say “Do as I say, not as I do.”

It should be considered theft when somebody removes rights from others to secure their own future, and yet an example of it exists right under our noses.

Laws have been passed to prevent insider trading, so how can it be that people elected to federal office, who have access to non-public stock market information, should be allowed to do what you and I would go to jail for doing?

Such people are the worst, and we need to set examples.

The money obtained in those schemes should be confiscated by the American people and put into our banks, used to bring down the national debt.

The country would be in the black.

The public needs to hire its own criminal attorney and put everyone involved in jail.

Mary McPherson, Rumford
