Quelle Surprise

I wonder what made people hate the idea of this cow being the Comptroller of the Currency so much?  Oh yeah:

Saule Omarova’s stated supported proposals would cause banks to cease being depository institutions for individual accounts, reassigning these checking and savings “demand deposit accounts” directly to the Federal Reserve. That proved too radical an agenda for Democrat and Republican senators to take a risk on  [I should fucking well hope so — K]; particularly given that the head of the OCC does, indeed, have the power to facilitate such changes as part of their tenure.
Omarova also raised eyebrows with her support for the concept of a National Investment Authority (NIA) that would have the power to direct private capital investment in the US from a central planning entity.

This steely-eyed Stalinist bitch (a graduate of Moscow State University — yes!) would have, at a stroke, completely demolished the entire concept of private property — yes, money earned is actually property, just not as far as Communists are concerned — and made the almighty Federal Government the controller of our personal finances.  And ditto for private investment — centrally controlled by government and not by companies, shareholders and individuals.

Of course, “President” Braindead called this opposition a “personal attack”, when in fact it was simply sharp opposition to her little plan to destroy the economy of the United States.

I need to stop now before I say something terrible.

Yesterday’s news, delivered a day late and a trillion dollars short, just like the Biden so-called “administration”.

despite the fact that :

and believe me, if it had, we’d all be wearing masks today.  [/sarc]

no wonder the Left is going apeshit about FuturePOTUS De Santis.

The Hell Of Being A Blogger

From Diogenes’ Middle Finger:

Concerning my absence from DMF:  Monday morning your Beloved Blog Editrix was unexpectedly kidnapped, my personal digital devices confiscated, and secreted off by the Love of My Life to be held (tightly) hostage for two days & nights in a Bed and Breakfast in Jefferson Texas. Then early Wednesday I was awakened and whisked off against my will to Dallas to participate in an decadent Christmas shopping spree, fine dining and a late night on the town. But this was not the end, as to come was being strong-armed & intimidated into picking out new car as my Christmas present AND THEN total humiliation having to drive it all the way home myself!!
But know this one thing my friends, I am a strong person. I will recover from this with time.

If I were a Cynical Old Phartte, I’d suspect that the love of her life done fucked up really badly, but as I’m not, I’m just glad for her.

From Scottishland comes this drivel:

Scotland seeks to ban words like ‘addict’ and ‘alcoholic’ in plan to tackle drug deaths

…to be replaced by?

New guidance published online calls for other words such as “junkie”, “clean” and “substance abuse” to be shunned in favour of “person with problematic drug use”, “person who has stopped using drugs” and “substance use”, respectively.

Nothing like a change in terminology to address the “problem” of drug deaths.

What amuses me about this bureaucratic bowdlerism is that the Scots are renowned for being among the plainest-speaking people on the planet — beating out even Australians — with their often-withering commentary about people and life in general.  (Listen to any Billy Connolly rant, for example, to get a taste.)

Imagine Billy describing a junkie using the above terms…
