Instant Replay....

Show and Tell!
You may have noticed that the video for the
October 15, 2015  NCUA Board Meeting still has not been posted. ( 

Know you have been waiting breathlessly to see it; can sense your disappointment. About as tough as waiting for the upcoming sequel of StarWars!

The problem evidently has to do with Board
Pulling out all the "stops"!

member Metsger's lengthy

soliloquy at the meeting on how stupid Congress, the trades, and credit unions appeared to be in disagreeing with him (and his "like thinking" Board colleague) on the new RBC rule. Mr. Metsger spoke ad nauseum about "stopping".. and then personally failed to do so! [I can personally empathize with Mr. Metsger's "lack of brakes", as you might well imagine!]

For those paying close attention you will note that the originally published "official transcript" of Mr. Metsger's remarks has been "magically cleaned up"! What was said no longer matches up real well with what is written!  

Perfumed, powdered, and re-diapered!

But the reason for the delay is they still haven't quite figured out how to cleanse the official video to get Mr. Metsger's...

... foot out of his mouth!

[Hey relax! Photo shop it!]

old southern North Carolina-isms that describes Metsger:

Lying by omission? Lipstick on a pig? That dog won't hunt? All hat, no cattle? Too clever by half? Just fell off the turnip truck? Playing opossum? You can’t make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear? He’s as drunk as Cooter Brown? He’s as happy as a dead pig in sunshine? He’s got more nerve than Carter’s got Liver Pills? He thinks the sun comes up just to hear him crow? He's about as useful as tits on a bull?

And the best ever that my Momma always said about "slow" people: "Bless his heart."

I am going to resist the temptation to pile on about how stupid Metsger appears; yes, he's a lightweight, yes, he doesn't have the demeanor or temperament to be a regulator at any level of government, yes, he made something of a fool of himself at the October NCUA meeting.

What needs to be said more often is that the credit union "leaders" who put Metsger up for NCUA in the first place need to be held accountable. I recall being fed a line of b.s back when Metsger first was nominated. CUNA and the Oregon league president both were ecstatic about having Metsger on the board.

Those entities, not the ventriloquist's dummy that is Metsger, ought to be the subject of our scorn and derision. Shame on them for this embarassment.
