Financial disclosure forms for Homeland Security director Tom Ridge held assests valued between 100,000 and 815K in companies which do business with his department.  Gosh, what a happy coincidence for Tom!

His spokesman also has a dirty, dirty mouth. (see last section of article)Those Duct Tape and Saran Wrap investments really paid off!

    Hmmmm.. is it possible that “Sean the Liberal Hater” is the spokesman for Ridge?

    I love how Scrooge McDuck keeps all his money in a big safe in his house.  It totally perpetuates the middle-class myth that if you work hard and hold onto your money you’ll be wealthy.  Such propaganda for kids that all rich people have all their wealth in liquid assets at their fingertips.

    Man, I’m so drunk.

    I wasn’t sure but when I was reading that article, I didn’t think I saw when the investments were made?  Were any made prior to his appointment as the security director?  I’m not a big fan of this guy, but his portfolio looked pretty much like a regular tech, bluechip stocks.  I just like to have the whole fact before using it against anyone.

    These are all investments made since his appointment. Secondly, he filed the forms almost 3 months late (Probably to lessen blowback on the Bush)
