Dear John Ransom, I do enjoy your articles, but not being a financial-minded kind of guy, I don't often comment. I'm writing because you have proven over and over again that you actually read the comments, at least at times. There are several people, it seems, who are constantly spamming town hall articles with irrelevant, "Tokyo Rose"- type comments. I'm asking if you could nag the powers-that-be here at TH to do whatever it takes to put an end to this harassment. It's frustrating. If I ever meet one of these spammers in real life, I'm going to seriously hurt them. Their efforts are to distract and discourage people, rather than engage in a battle of ideas.

The last time we met “This Old Socialist,” Congresswoman Maxine Waters, (D-Delusional), she was being probed for “ethics violations,” which is fed-speak for “things for which you and I go to jail, but which is legal for congress.”

Waters, then, was gamely trying to vie for a leadership position on the Financial Services Committee despite a dogged investigation regarding her finances and influence peddling that had dragged out for months. She was doing so in the wake of the announcement that the committee’s ranking Democrat, Barney Frank (D-Dope) (pun intended) was leaving congress to fulfill his lifelong dream of getting married...
