Harry Reidís Real Estate Investing Plan
Human Events ^ | 10/17/2006 | Mac Johnson

Are you stuck in a dead end job so boring that you spend all day at work surfing the web reading witty political commentary? Are you tired of investments that depend on unreliable “market forces” for their returns? Haven’t you always dreamed of a way to make money that was as automatic as the creeping bureaucracy that afflicts our nation’s cash flow like fiscal atherosclerosis?

Well dream no more, friend, because today I am going to let you in on one of the great secrets of American business (and the mainstream media): The Harry Reid Do-Nothing Miracle Investment System! Through this system, you can sit back and watch the cash roll in from questionable desert real estate investments with the sort of reliability that only government can provide.

Real Life Example No. 3:

Whittemore inadvertently got a great deal on a 42,832-acre property once intended as a missile test range. The land was a development nightmare, because it was infested with the endangered Desert Tortoise ...the Bureau of Land Management gave Whittemore clear title to 10,000-acre rent-free lease constituting the Desert Tortoise Preserve in the middle of the site, in exchange for 10,000 acres on the eastern edge of the 5-mile by 13-mile tract. Local officials of the Interior Department objected to this minor “boundary adjustment” of the preserve, but were overruled by Washington. The Desert Tortoises, it turns out, were willing to move to the Mormon Mountains.

—several years ago , I called his Las Vegas office, right after it came out that he had made a couple of million on a piece of land he didn’t even own.

—cordially asked the girl when his real estate investment classes started as I wanted in on deals like that—she hung up on me-—

It seems that Reid’s access to insider trading is not enough to supplement his daytime job.

Maybe this is why Reid hasn’t been among those calling Congressional pay ($174k) too little.

Harry Reid Do-Nothing Miracle Investment System

Ok, this is quite inaccurate. Old Harry Greed DOES do allot to ensure his profits. He drafts and passes legislation to guarantee profits.

Many Wall Street firms buy legislators to do the same.

Both tactics are easier and more certain than actually competing in the market.

Once elected, they become bureaucratic thieves. Their end is coming soon.

Yes, their end is coming soon. As soon as Congress gets around to expulsions for the Credit Mobilier scandal.
