Savvy investors


Hmm . . . While most of us were dumping our life savings into a "safe" investment -- purchasing a home -- some other people were investing in the 100 year war.

In all, 151 current members of Congress -- more than one-fourth of the total -- have invested between 78.7 million dollars and 195.5 million dollars in companies that received defence contracts of at least 5.0 million dollars, according to CRP.

I've read that almost all of the big American fortunes going back to the American revolution could be tied to war profiteering.
