Paid Lobbists?

Reader comment on item: "Eventually, All Humans Will Be Palestine Refugees"
in response to reader comment: What is wrong with the civilized world?

Submitted by Larry B (United States), Feb 27, 2012 at 22:54

Dear Susan,

First, all americans must insist that their representatives and senators make public where their wealth is invested in. I read an article that the collective wealth or net worth of the people who represent us in the house and senate is something like 16 billion dollars. I would bet two cigars that the bulk of that wealth is from investments in arab oil, just a guess. So? would they work to upset their royalties? no, they would work collectively to protect their investments and appease the mad mad world of the arabian peninsula,

to be fair, I must say that this is just a guess.

Larry
