Unchecked, unbalanced. Unconscionable.

And unsurprising.

I knew about Obama’s non-recess appointment.  And of necessity this Cordray had to be a statist S.O.B.  What I didn’t know was the filthy details about the CFPB, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.  Jonah shares:

The CFPB is a constitutional affront…the power to regulate any practices it deems “unfair”…it has blank-check power to write the rules it wants to enforce. Worse, it cannot be reined in by Congress, because Dodd-Frank gave it a self-funding mechanism. It can simply take up to 12 percent of the Federal Reserve’s operating expenses to do whatever it wants.

Wow.  And,

They also insulated the rogue agency from the courts, requiring that judges defer to the CFPB’s legal theories.

He’s saying Congress created an executive bureaucracy specifically designed to bypass legislative and judicial restraint. 

Do teachers even mention “checks and balances” anymore?  If they do, I hope those Dept. of Education hacks choke on their words.  A wistful and forlorn hope, admittedly.

Congress doesn’t worry about creating a monster because the Legislative/Executive/ Judicial divide no longer exists.  The Ruling Class doesn’t “check and balance”, it expands and absorbs.

As you may know, I claim the greatest analogy in human history.  If everyone understood it, it would definitely do the most good for secular existence.   Indulge me in a quote from that post:

Parasites thrive as the host weakens.  Killing the host dooms them in the end, but the period of downfall is the parasites’ days of glory.

Look again at Jonah’s description of our latest government agency and tell me:  symbiote or parasite?  These are the glory days of our Ruling Class.  Behold their arrogance and sanctimony and self-worship!  They know their rule is righteous, because they keep getting away with it.  

But they don’t understand why.  America is dead.  Obama and Cordray lord it over a corpse.  Traces of America’s spirit do linger (in the Tea Partys), whose resistance so outrages the parasites. 

I now know what convinced me that America is dead.  Until now I couldn’t have told you, exactly.  But I now realize that America has made its choice between the Tea Partys and the Ruling Class. 

Bad choice.   

I wrote America off when my subconscious understood this.  The Ruling Class killed America when it convinced the U.S. that the cure was actually a disease. 

The U.S. is such a gargantuan corpse that news of its death will take a while to get around.  Signs of life will abound, but locally, only locally.  The overarching story is in the hundreds and thousands of items like this:   the feasts of parasites.

Well, being such creatures is its own punishment.   We don’t have to let them ruin things for us personally.  So it’s back to Skyrim for me.  For you, here are gift-links from my madwoman co-worker .  One is well-known, but you probably haven’t seen this picture from a Cracker Barrel restroom:

The other is the classic feel-good movie, Dog Day Afternoon:
