    From the story - it illustrates the sad state of Congress.

    Earlier this month, Business Insider reported at least 78 congressional members, Democrats and Republicans alike, had violated a 2012 law known as the STOCK Act — Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act — which lawmakers designed to combat insider trading among lawmakers and force public servants to disclose their personal financial dealings, including any stock trade made by themselves, a spouse, or a dependent child.

    Still, according to the report, lawmakers allegedly broke the law, citing ignorance, clerical issues, and accounting mistakes.

    NOOOOO! I liked the pun on the title of the Act.

    But it was pretty accurate.

    Now I personally didn't think it was very punny.

    Ya, but from Hawley? Are you aware that he could be in a ton of trouble?

    Is that what your wife refers to you as being? :D

    BTW, I don't think God has any input into American politics, and if He did, then that would prove He's neither omniscient nor omnipotent.:emojconfused:

    There are so many laws, that behind every life is a list of crimes.

    They're guilty of something.
    They just don't know what laws they've violated.
