Welcome To...Russia?

czar (zär, tsär)n.
1. also tsar or tzar (zär, tsär) A male monarch or emperor, especially one of the emperors who ruled Russia until the revolution of 1917.
2. A person having great power; an autocrat
3. Informal An appointed official having special powers to regulate or supervise an activity

New definition - 37 members of Chairman Maobama's administration.

One can only wonder what will become of the administration or what it's intent is once it begins to resemble your standard Communist regime.

Health & Human Resources Secretary Kathleen Sebelius has just announced a new czar, this one will oversee the FDA. According to Sebelius the czar will, "be responsible for restructuring and revitalizing the FDA's work to protect our food supply". Considering what the FDA's "standards" have been in the past, the last statement scares the living crap out of me.

Not only is the appointment of all these czars questionable, the biggest concern is what these people will actually do. According to the administration, the czars will be Special Masters of Compensation in order to regulate companies receiving bailout funds and ensure they're being used appropriately. I can see this applying to the auto industry and banks that were bailed out, but what about the others? What about Energy Czar Carol Browner, who has rather strong and well documented socialist ties? Urban czar? Health reform czar? This ain't all. Yesterday, a Congressman said there are now a total of 37 czars.

Now, you may ask, who exactly is "in control" of these czars? No one. Well, no one except for Lord Obama himself. Considering how well he's been handling things so far, the mere thought that this man is in control of anything else makes me piss myself. Let's get this straight; these czars have no congressional oversight whatsoever. They, in reality, can do virtually whatever they want. They have no boss. NO ONE tells them what to do, they're simply another bureaucratic layer in an administration that's attempting one of the biggest powergrabs in American history.

Speaking of Energy Czar Carol Browner, she has come under fire recently for no less than appalling comments aimed at auto industry executives. "Put nothing in writing", says the recycled Clintonista head of the EPA. Not only is this statement controversial and only a teeny bit outrageous, it may very well be advocating illegal acts. Representative Sensenbrenner, a Republican from Wisconsin, is calling for a congressional investigation concerning these comments. Reason being; federal law requires executives and any other officials to physically document any major policy decisions within the industry. Then again, his request may very well go unnoticed. She's a czar, remember?

I love transparency.
