Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,April 21st,2014

.. it makes you wonder …

.. for those who do not realize , Bob Woodward is old Navy . He was an intelligence officer in the U.S. Navy for a fair number of years before he went to work at the Washington ComPost …

.. [h/t — HotAir]…
.. [link] to the video segment …

.. if Woodward gets interested in this , and gets a commitment from the higher ups at the ComPost [he is one of them] …. his reputation alone will scare the [bleep] out of people if and / or when he starts digging …. then once stories start appearing in the paper & OL , then you really get the LameStream media ‘ s attention …

… the difference is that with earned income , you do get it , generally , but with capital assets , you are not guaranteed to get your money back . you have put your money at risk …

… you do it in a bank … in bonds , stocks … commodities…other financials …

… get the idea …
