In an uncomfortable episode during a meeting of the House Financial Services Committee on Tuesday, Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA) asked Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson a series of specific mortgage-related policy questions that he was utterly unable to answer.

From brilliant neurosurgeon to clueless Trump stooge. Sad!

The demagogue is one who preaches doctrines he knows to be untrue to men he knows to be idiots. ―H.L. Mencken

Bad government is the natural product of rule by those who believe government is bad. —Thomas Frank

Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind. —Einstein
I’m a nationalist. —Trump

The people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country. —Hermann Göring

She's been giving Trump appointments serious heartburn since shortly after she was elected.

I think what this points out is how powerful people often assume it's always someone else's job to mitigate their own shortcomings and incompetencies. The secretary of Housing and Urban Development doesn't have to know anything about his department that he doesn't want to know - what it does and how it operates - he has people to do that for him.

There is a strategy here. The more incompetent the heads are, the less money the departments spend. And spending is bad because it is "big government." We don't need any bridges. Or the next Obama can build them.

No. The more incompetent the heads are, the more money the the lobbyists and think-tanks get for formulating policy and drafting legislation.

This just in! Trump appointees clear up 14th Amendment confusion about fetuses. The Amendment with liberties and all, does not refer to women's bodies! It means the men have the liberty to protect their fetuses. With guns!

So guns, not fetuses. William Barr will explain it doon. Supreme court not needed.

Alabama Public Television is censoring an episode of a children's show because one of the characters is getting married. The character is male, marrying another male, and the public television authority has decided that a children's show that normalizes same-sex marriage is beyond the pale.



'Alabama, surprisingly, refuses to air big gay rat wedding.'
The state's public television channel is refusing to show the episode, referring to it as a "violation of trust" to air the wedding ep — the central messages of which are: 1. Marry whoever you want as long as they're consenting and kind; 2. Just because a rat is gay doesn't mean he's going to be fabulous on the dance floor.

If you're wondering why that's considered and, I quote again, "a violation of public trust," the short answer is that "the vast majority of parents will not have heard about the content," according to Mike McKenzie, the president of Alabama's Public Television.

“Parents have trusted Alabama Public Television for more than 50 years to provide children’s programs that entertain, educate and inspire,” read a statement from McKenzie.

“More importantly — although we strongly encourage parents to watch television with their children and talk about what they have learned afterwards — parents trust that their children can watch APT without their supervision. We also know that children who are younger than the ‘target’ audience for 'Arthur' also watch the program.”

It's worse than that L'Emmy - it's an example of inter-species marriage as well. But I say Hey! What a wonderful kind of day, where you learn to work and play - and get along with each other. :tea:
