Now the White House is buying into this crap?? Say it ain’t so, Joe!

An anonymous source sent me the following sound bite dated May 18, 2015:

President Obama Announces More Key Administration Posts

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, President Barack Obama announced his intent to nominate the following individuals to key Administration posts:

General Larry R. Ellis, USA (Ret.) – Member, National Commission on the Future of the Army
Kathleen H. Hicks – Member, National Commission on the Future of the Army
Thomas R. Lamont – Member, National Commission on the Future of the Army
Lieutenant General Jack C. Stultz, USAR (Ret.) – Member, National Commission on the Future of the Army
Chad Dickerson – Member, Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiations
Gary Hirshberg – Member, Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiations
Dennis D. Williams – Member, Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiations

In case you missed what would ordinarily be boring news that meant nothing to most of us, note the 5th name on the list and read his illustrious bio:

Chad Dickerson, Appointee for Member, Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiations
Chad Dickerson is CEO of Etsy, a position he has held since 2011. He was Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of Etsy from 2008 to 2011. Previously, Mr. Dickerson was Director of the Brickhouse and Advanced Products teams at Yahoo! from 2007 to 2008, and was Senior Director of the Yahoo! Developer Network from 2006 to 2007. He also served as CTO of InfoWorld Media Group from 2001 to 2005 and was CTO of Salon.com from 1998 to 2001. Mr. Dickerson received a B.A. from Duke University.

Trade policy?  Negotiations??  A KEY administrative post???

I honestly thought the whole news clip was a joke until I found the article myself.

And then I thought, well doesn’t that just explain a lot of this current malarkey!  Chad doesn’t give a rat’s…nest…since we are on the “nest” theme…about what is happening back at his granola munching, garbage recycling, Birkenstock wearing office.  Nope.  He’s got bigger plans, because apparently his gross mismanagement and outright deceit are being rewarded with an administrative post.

From. The. White. House.

Yes, I just turned four words into four separate sentences, breaking every grammar rule known to man.  Just to help drive the whole point HOME.  A key administrative post.  For Chad Dickerson.  King of “sell out the Americans in exchange for some cheap shit from China”.  King of “I make the rules and selectively enforce them depending on how pretty your model is or how much revenue you are generating for me, oops I mean for us.”

I would like to say that I’m speechless…but I’m not.  I just can’t put into print the exact string of (really not very ladylike) words I’d like to say.

I guess just use your imagination…

  1. I too saw this article awhile ago. I have to say that as hard as I try to figure out all the deviousness & Machiavellian plotting-it is always even WORSE than I can imagine!

  2. Well, I tried to post something from the WSJ but it says “Your comment is awaiting moderation” so, here it goes:

  3. Sadly, Etsy will likely further pursue the “your-one-stop-site-for-cheap-ass-factory-crap” path. More profit for them in this spooky netherworld. Quantity not quality. Chad’s Carnival Of Soulless Capitalism. “Handmade” is just a tag now to lure in suckers.
