Yes, you are. Very. More than almost any other human being, if you can still be called a human being.

No it is not.  Their mere words can affect the price of a share so it is best if they don't have a COI.  If you have a reason it's dumb state it.

Republicans keep promoting their most noxious and insidious criminals for high office.

The republican party must be torn down root and branch.

Kiid is a puppet. Puppets like Kiid dont need reasons so long as their masters hold their strings.

They are US citizens and should have the same rights as those who work in other fields.

They have the same rights until you pass a law restricting their stock trading.  Don't like it, simply don't become a senator.

They could still own stocks, either in a blind trust or in mutual/index funds.
But individual company stock trading would be prohibited.

Perdue facing his 3rd allegation of insider stock trading.
A number of senators got early CV briefing from Trump and then right away  made trades that would seem to reflect that knowledge.  Loeffler among them.

Avoid the appearance of impropriety, remove the temptation to cheat.

https://www.npr.org/2020/11/21/937467457/ceo-over-voa-acted-unconstitutionally-in-pursuing-bias-claims-u-s-judge-rules

The chief executive over the Voice of America and its sister networks has acted unconstitutionally in investigating what he claimed was a deep-seated bias against President Trump by his own journalists, a federal judge has ruled.

Citing the journalists' First Amendment protections, U.S. Judge Beryl Howell on Friday evening ordered U.S. Agency for Global Media CEO Michael Pack to stop interfering in the news service's news coverage and editorial personnel matters. She struck a deep blow at Pack's authority to continue to force the news agency to cover the president more sympathetically.

Actions by Pack and his aides have likely "violated and continue to violate [journalists'] First Amendment rights because, among other unconstitutional effects, they result in self-censorship and the chilling of First Amendment expression," Howell wrote in her opinion. "These current and unanticipated harms are sufficient to demonstrate irreparable harm."   


  Pack had announced in late October that he was scrapping a so-called "firewall" protections for the newsroom from political interference. The regulation was written just before he took over by concerned agency officials to codify longstanding traditions that were also invoked by earlier federal laws.

On Friday, Howell pointed to those laws in ruling Pack's actions were unconstitutional.

USAGM has not responded to repeated requests for comment about the decision, but the director of VOA did.

"Editorial independence and journalistic integrity free of political interference are the core elements that sustain VOA and make us America's voice," Acting VOA Director Elez Biberaj said in a statement Saturday in response to the judge's ruling.
