A constellation of czars 7

From Front Page Magazine:

The number of czars is growing like weeds in a vacant field. A recent appointee was Lynn Rosenthal, a czar for domestic violence. (Have the country’s police all retired?). Rosenthal most recently focused on domestic violence in New Mexico in cases ranging from sexual assault to housing. The czars keep piling up: a U.S. border czar, an urban czar, a regulatory czar, a stimulus accountability czar (Wasn’t that supposed to be Joe Biden’s job?), a Middle East czar, a cyber-security czar. But the most disturbing czar appointment is Carol Browner, “Assistant to the President for Energy and Climate Change.” Browner was a “commissioner of the Socialist International, the umbrella group for 170 “social democratic and labor parties” in 55 countries. She is also equipped to deal with our politicians’ audacious attempt to control the earth’s climate, having worked for “global warming” fright monger Al Gore.

Insolence in leadership has been of deep concern going back to our earliest patriots. For instance, in “Common Sense,” Thomas Paine in 1776 wrote: “Men who look upon themselves as born to reign…soon grow insolent,..their minds are early poisoned by importance; and the world they act in differs so materially from the world at large, that they have but little opportunity of knowing of its true interests, and when they succeed to the government are frequently the most ignorant and unfit of any throughout the dominions.”
