Exactly ... anarchy Capitalism or destruction Capitalism is all the rage for several decades now.  Now they are bringing it to governance.  OK, people who oppose department X ... they can legislate it out of existence, simply refuse to enforce the law/regulations pertaining to it, defund the hell out of it, or provide destructive leadership.  R-party will use all of the above.  If the R-party got what they wanted ... almost all Federal agencies would be eliminated outright.  That is what they do.  Do you criticize the ecological purpose of bugs and mold ... they help the corpses of Democrats decay into useful humus.  On the other hand, the living animals and plants ... live, while they still can, eventually providing employment for the bugs and mold.

that means devos will eventually be billion dollar bug meat.

That doesnt help any of us. Looks more like the rules are for regular folk. Rules dont apply to rich people like DonRump. They get to make the rules.

I guess Devros can redeem herself if she manages to teach people how dumb they were to pick Donald. All these illegal immigrants planning to go home cause they are afraid of Trump. save a seat on the bus for the rest of us

Charter schools suck.  They're prone to closing in the middle of a school year, with no notice to students or teachers.  They don't deliver.  They're given federal funds but not required to follow federal law or regulation.  Public schools have their hands tied by regulations and overreach.  Practically begging for pennies.  And their sole function is to create an educated population.  The sole function of a charter school? Make money for its investors.

I really hope they refuse to approve her.  But they will.

Instead of draining the swamp, he is filling it even more with nepotism. I am still in disbelief that so many people got fooled by this con artist.
I am not in disbelief---yet.  I'm in shock.  I'll feel better when I get to disbelief.  I knew our country was filled with SFA's (stupid fucking americans), but I did not realize just how full. 
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

Favoritism and cronyism for Republicans ... nepotism is big for Democrats.

No, since I have no big Government job, that is proof your claim is wrong.  ;)

It is a little more complicated, than going down to Walmart, picking a political position off the shelf, and swiping your credit card at the checkout ;-)

Politicians have always been for sale.  Pericles was charged with corruption (malfeasance).  Like most job searching ... it is networking networking networking.  The resume/CV is important but secondary.

unfortunately yes you can buy a politician. If the politician is above taking your bribe all you gotta do is threaten to put a lot of money into a superpac of a competing candidate. wall st dangles some chump change in front of a representative (which is probably more money than a representative knows what yo do with) and they suddenly turn into yes-men

If you are a Republican, or can pretend to be one, and have enough money, YOU TOO can be SOMEONE IMPORTANT!  Its the Trumpian universe and all are welcome to participate in the glories and gains hereby! 

Stay at his hotels, play on his golf courses, give money to his children and you will do well cronies...

Devos was just confirmed by the senate by a 51-50 vote with Pence casting the deciding vote.

You think public schools are bad now just wait until this completely unqualified (except for her political donations) bitch gets done with them.
