    Can anyone do this? Say even someone who is not even a member here?
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Its probably that Bron idiot.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Elizabeth Warren - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    I don't see the need for the agency to begin with and don't really like that she advocated for it's existence.
    With that said, if it's going to exist anyway, she seems competent and fair minded.

    I like some of the quoted work that others have talked about with her, a lot of personal financial responsibility seems to be her mantra.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Re: Elizabeth Warren

    Her wiki article reads like a puff piece about her, so it's worth reading about a few of the criticisms of her in order to understand the opposition.

    Elizabeth Warren's Holy Crusade - Forbes.com

    Considering Elizabeth Warren, the Scholar - Megan McArdle - Business - The Atlantic

    She seems like an unabashed partisan who has very strong feelings about what is and is not proper practice. Whether one supports her for this position will probably depend on whether or not one shares her views.

    After the financial meltdown of a few years back, there's not denying that reform is needed. She not only seems to have the smarts, experience and goods to do the job, but most importantly, she seems to have the interest of regular joe blow American at heart. Banks seem to dislike her, and I don't think that is a bad thing. BTW, I did read your posted links, and the crusade one was just an opinion piece that had little to offer. But I did get a kick out of one of the comments, though, and had to share. ;-)


    If Elizabeth Warren is a Holy Crusader, what are the bankers? Jihadists?


    BTW, here's an interesting counter article to the author of your second link, and her conclusions on Warren:

    The obama administration is filling regulatory and cabinent positions with people who are essentially fascists. Look at Sebelius threat to insurance companies. I think this woman is not what we need

    Even if we agreed that "reform" is needed, it doesn't necessarily follow that we need the type of reform that this office is designed to handle, nor does it follow that we need the type of reform that she wants.

    And yes, while many might see the fact that she's a populist as a good thing, that largely depends on where one falls on the populist v. bank spectrum.

    BTW, I did read your posted links, and the crusade one was just an opinion piece that had little to offer. But I did get a kick out of one of the comments, though, and had to share. ;-)



    BTW, here's an interesting counter article to the author of your second link, and her conclusions on Warren:

    Megan McArdle’s Hack Post on Elizabeth Warren’s Scholarship Rortybomb
    He raises what appear to be some valid criticisms, but I'm not interested enough to go through the arguments line by line. I just wanted to point out some other perspectives, given the nature of the wiki link.
