    Default Wary of Attack With Smallpox, U.S. Buys Up a Costly Drug

    The United States government is buying enough of a new smallpox medicine to treat two million people in the event of a bioterrorism attack, and took delivery of the first shipment of it last week.

    But the purchase has set off a debate about the lucrative contract, with some experts saying the government is buying too much of the drug at too high a price.

    A small company, Siga Technologies, developed the drug in recent years. Whether the $463 million order is a boondoggle or a bargain depends on which expert is talking. The deal will transform the finances of Siga, which is controlled by Ronald O. Perelman, a billionaire financier, philanthropist and takeover specialist.

    What, the government is buying too much of something at a higher price. Can't be.

    I just Wikied this guy Perelman his life in business looks like hes always one step ahead of the law. He was even involved in finding a job for Monica Lewinski at the request of Clinton advisor Vernon Jordan before the scandal broke. He was the 69th richest person in the world before this vaccine deal with the feds I suppose he's moved up a notch now. Guys been married 5 times,that alone is a red flag. Siga Technologys stock SIGA has more than doubled in the last 52 weeks. Chronie Capitalism strikes again.

    Want to get pissed off, and this is just a hunch, but take a look and see how many Senators and Representatives bought SIGA about a year ago.

    I betcha it is a shitload somehow have it in their portfolio's, or their wife's, or their foundation, trust, etc.

    Working with these guys as I do, it is a little known dirty secret. They have as much or more insider information than most guys on Wall Street. And many of them use it, unethically.

    The kicker is, they are allowed to by the law. Congress is exempt from insider trading laws, it is just considered unethical.

    Take a look at all the health stocks bought and sold based upon who would and would not be covered under Obamacare.

    They are preferred citizens, and it is an unbelievable level of bullshit to me.

    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!
