Prime example of why rethuglicans love war - profit.

It's so blatant and constant though. That's what is so disturbed about it. Christie, Petri, and God knows who tomorrow. Repugnantcans have let their lying, cheating, spinning and stealing to become totally acceptable to them. How is this any different than cheney and Haliburton?

No it isn't illegal, and Democrats hold stock in companies they often help as well. The biggest holder of military stock during the early Bush Administration was Hillary Clinton. I don't know if she still has it.

Any proof of this claim?

Don't try Google it - you made the claim, now I'd like you to provide a link to this.

If you don't or if you try to weasel out of proving this claim, you will be known as an utter liar.

But we all already knew this also.

It came out when Hillary was first lady that she held military stock. You expect me to save the Article for 20 years? It is one of those things you know if you read real newspapers. You should try it sometime. Tony, honey, I've forgotten more then you will ever know.
