Congress employs hedge fund trimmer; hedge threatens to up and leave!

Corrupt US Congress grilled the Hedge fund Capitalists who won big while the people of the world lost big time. The big billionaires admitted that they always planned to get rich quick off of the losses of bad investments.

"We collect the wages of sin...", explained Hedge Fund mogul, Gotcha Byetha-Balz, "I bet against stupidity the way a horse player picks favorites. Why punish me for my insight into human nature? Puck said it best and I've gotten rich off of Shakespeare's fairy's intuition:" What fools ye mortals be!"

When the Congressional inquiry grew hostile the Hedge Fund billionaires grew nervous. One told the US law makers:

"I've got England on my speed dial and at the slightest indication that you expect me to pay my fair share, I can be in the UK in two shakes of a Lancaster lamb's tail!"
