Overpaid incompetents

Hard to see why the Fed even bothered to issue this pointless statement today. Ezra has the shorter, but the shorter, shorter is: "The economy is in the tank. It's not getting better fast enough, proving we are complete failures at our job. But we're not going to do anything about it today. We'll think about doing something tomorrow. And by tomorrow we mean, not any time soon."

Wish we could fire these smug idiots and mandate that they work at a minimum wage slave labor job for a year or so. Maybe then they might feel motivated to the job they were hired to do.

Meanwhile the Senate once again proves its an entirely useless body. Harry let the GOPers and Blue Dogs derail the military appropriations bill, that included the DREAM Act and repeal of DADT, with another idle threat to filibuster. Shorter GOP: "If we can't delay the process indefinitely with a million useless amendments, we're not going to let anyone vote on it." So far not one Dem, incuding Harry, has thrown down the old GOP saw about how holding up military appropriations is tantamount to treason. Of course, forcing grumpy Gramps McCain to actually go through with his threatened filibuster is entirely out of the question.

Really, really sick of being "governed" by feckless morons. Maybe if we paid them according to results instead for just showing up and doing nothing, they would get something done.
