This Blog Is Moving

Greetings. After this weekend, this Take Our Country Back Blog will be moving to the new web site. Too many conservatives are getting zapped by the intolerant dweebs of the Obama Goons and seeing that this editing platform is a free site, Blogger can do pretty much what it feels like doing. Hence, I now have a paid site and will be migrating the last 1400+ posts shortly.

So, one day, you just may click this page somewhere and it will show up as "private". It has been fun but the intolerant Czarbie Goon Squads are brain dead idiots. They can come play at the new site which I OWN outright.

The 50 Richest Members Of Congress


Roll Call has the scoop and here it is:
Roll Call’s annual attempt to rank the riches of Members of Congress is hampered by one fundamental flaw: It is based on the lawmakers’ financial disclosure forms, which are extraordinarily unreliable sources of information. [...]

These amounts, however, do not take into consideration of all the other assets that increase their overall wealth, FYI. Adding all of that up, totals $1,477.97M. I wonder what the other 465 Congress Critters are worth. This is loking like a good down payment on the $700B, doesn't it?
