Where has all the money gone?

The Washington Post tracks scumbag Jack Abramoff's purchase of our politicians. And while $5 million seems like a lot of money to you and me, remember that these bought politicians regularly deal with BILLIONS--a thousand times as much. Most of these billions come back, one way or another, to the lobbyists and the capitalist scum they represent, providing them not only the obscene profits they crave but also endless funds to buy even more politicians. American politicians--the best investment ever.

Of course, Abramoff is just one of dozens, maybe hundreds, of swindling lobbyists investing in the politicians to make sure the wars continue, the tax cuts grow, the rich get richer, and the poor get poorer. A guy like Abramoff is pretty much a mutual fund for corporations:
The Abramoff American Politicians Fund. Buy dozens of pols with one simple investment! Returns: Last year 8045%. Five years 92432%. Life of fund--3256566575%. Past performance is an excellent predictor of future earnings. Minimum investment $100,000. (It doesn't cost that much to buy a politician, but we won't do it for you unless you're rich.)
