Just in case you think 60 Minutes randomly decided to expose politicians for insider trading

A fundamental skill of magicians and wall street is misdirection. Get the audience to focus on something else, taking attention off where the true action is. Do you actually believe that good old 60 minutes randomly decided to go after Pelosi and Bohner this week for kleptomaniacstyle greed? Not ten years ago, not last year, but right now when Wall Street and one of their big corporations CBS could really use a little misdirection.

It's like Goldman Sachs and the boys are saying, "Hey, America look where we want you to, at politicians! Look at your elected officials! Look how they steal! (I, personally, can't even sit through the 60 minutes piece. Of course politicians suck. Of course they are the cause of half our problems.) But that is not my point here.

For the uninitiated, I will spell this out in simple terms and I welcome anyone to tell me where I am wrong on this.

1. Wall Street/Huge corporations have more power, motive and talent to set our national agenda than any politician including a sitting president of either party.

2. They set the agenda; things like opening our borders to illegals and opening trade so companies have been able to easily move their manufacturing to china.

3. They use their lobbyist and their money (remember they have most the money and money=power so they have the most of that too.) to grease the wheels of politicians.

4. They use their power over the media to tell us all how to think and feel. i.e. the 60 minutes piece on insider trading by Pelosi and Bohner.

Now I welcome anyone to tell me where I am wrong.
