Good. DeVos is a gargoyle who is arguably the most destructive part of Trump's cabinet. The only reason she lasted as long as she did is because Trump doesn't give a shiat about education.

This pleases me greatly. I'd be more pleased if we unleashed Warren on every financial institution in America. But I am old and I am allowed to have my dreams.

But this also pleases me greatly. American kids pay an absurd amount of money for an education in the first place and then to be gouged like this for it. And with the willing support of our government? What a travesty.

Ajit Pai of the FCC was up there as well -- he got rid of net neutrality by successfully claiming that the FCC did not have the authority. Of course he didn't anticipate the logical result, which is that instead of a single set of federal net neutrality rules we'll now have 50 separate versions that will be similar-but-not-quite-the-same, with the FCC not being able to do anything about it because he just successfully argued they don't have that authority.  The network providers didn't like one set of rules, but they'll bound to like 50 sets far less.

They need to check the financials of the loan companies and see how much they were funneling to DeVos.

It's a f*cking start, anyway.

Louis DeJoy. His sabotage is unprecedented. The destruction of federal property. MAIL-IN BALLOTS LATE. Conflict of interest and the American public pays the price. Why won't Biden push the system to get the USPS back where it was, especially the part where the Bush administration forced the USPS to fund 75 years of pensions. Oddly enough, the feds don't require pension funding for anything else.

/he might be a friend of Michele but he is no friend to the American people.
//Bush admits full of war criminals
///yellowcake, indeed.

Why I  do know of Rohit Chopra! From back when he was a student Ombudsman, through Hollister Petraeus even!  And you are right, I am absolutely delighted!  Over the moon even!

Thank you so much! I did not even put two and two together. I just get so morose reading the headlines sometimes. I truly appreciate you pointing this out!

I  am motivated to read the article now!

Thank you once again!

Wanna see miracles in real life?

THE Senator from MBNA as President is appointing some the toughest regulators and consumer advocates to oversee financial services.

And fark you if you don't know how big a difference that can make.

Can we start putting white collar corrupt criminals in jail
As much as we did for tokers during the drug war?

We'd get much better results in the long run.

And she had connections out the wazoo.

Her family is rich and powerful and her husband's family is powerful enough to have influenced president's and policies directly with closed door meetings with president's directly.

There's a reason Amway walked away unscathed while 3 other companies that had the exact same business models ended up bankrupt and their executives in jail.

Plus the wealth thing.

Stupid autocorrect.

Presidents plural, not possessive.
