Yet Another Brilliant Compromise

So let’s see:

The Democratic base overwhelmingly wants Elizabeth Warren to be the head of the CFPB.  Wall Street, Republicans, and conservadems overwhelmingly want her not to be head of the CFPB.

Solution: Give her absolutely no power over the CFPB, but pretend that you have.  Surely that will fool all the rubes on the left, right?

As Matt Yglesias tweeted:

With Warren, Obama showing real innovation in developing odd, satisfying to nobody compromises.

Sigh.  I’m almost rooting for impeachment at this point – I’m not sure I can take another 2-6 years of being treated like an irrelevant simpleton.

Terry Jones Even Worse Than We Thought

Oh. My. God.

Here is a snippet of transcript from CNN on September 10:

MALVEAUX: Hundreds of people in Cologne, Germany, have been watching this story unfold with special interest, because they are members of Jones’ former church.

(…)

HEINZ KOOP, FORMER JONES FOLLOWER: He was a charismatic leader. I think he was — the preference was very strong for us.

BLACK: Jones’ church, the Christian Community of Cologne, became the focus of their lives. Jones insisted on it, borrowing an infamous Nazi motto.  . . .

H. KOOP: And we worked the whole week, also Sunday and Saturday.

BLACK (on camera): For the church?

ELKA KOOP, FORMER JONES FOLLOWER: Yes.

H. KOOP: For the church, yes.

E. KOOP: Work made free.

BLACK: Is that what he said?

E. KOOP: Yes.

BLACK: Work makes you free?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Yes.

That’s right, Terry Jones adopted the motto of the Dachau concentration camp. In Germany.  But that’s not all:

Outside contact, even with family for weddings and funerals, is prohibited for students who attend the Dove World Outreach Academy in Gainesville. The academy members live on property owned by TS and Company, work in the selling, packing and shipping of furniture and are unpaid.

So not only does Jones think the Dachau motto was just swell, but he has actually convinced parents to pay him to put their kids in an honest-to-God work camp.  This guy truly makes my skin crawl.
