Previously, Omarova worked as a lawyer at Davis Polk, and during the George W. Bush administration, she was a special advisor for regulatory policy in the Treasury Department.

 

Although her research is wide-ranging, on everything from energy policy to infrastructure investment, Omarova is a well known scholar of financial regulation.

 

Financial experts say Omarova is likely to adopt a tougher approach to banks, but many agree that her previous research has been misrepresented.

 

At the same time, experts claim Omarova's critics, including Toomey, are misrepresenting her research.

 

"Many of us do thought experiments about how we would reimagine or restructure the financial system if we were starting from scratch," says Kress from the University of Michigan.

"That's not to say that any of us who have undergone those thought exercises, if put in a position of power in the government, would seek to effect this sort of large-scale changes."

 

But... but that "commie. She did thought experiments dadgummit"

Ok.. are you replying to someone or just posting these in the wrong thread?  Like, maybe you meant to put it in the "Democrat Utopia" thread?   

 

If you're replying to someone, are these to show that she is a communist and should be referred to as "Comrade"? 

 

So maybe you put them here to once again deflect from the original point, which in this case was to show what a xenophobic, fear mongering douchebag Kennedy is and how the Republican Party has gone full McCarthyism..

At best the kid is lucky to be alive. He very clearly did nothing to deescalate the situation in Kenosha, and contributed to blood on the city's streets.

 

So of course Republican lawmakers are feting him. 

 

 

Political posturing at its finest.

 

Imagine your only qualifications for becoming a politician's intern are that you killed two people and avoided a murder conviction.

Ha...right?

 

I mean, most of the time if you employment history has an unexplained gap or you show you that left jobs shortly after starting you are a red flag...

 

Now you can shoot and kill people and you move to the front of the intern pile?  

 

99.9% of the time "Killing two people and shooting another" is something you would hide while doing your resume...or at the very least try to spin it!  Ha
