During communist times in Russia their was a political man called a commissar. They were assigned to military units to "insure" the appointed officers toed the party line. They were answerable to Stalin.
I could make a joke about Obama ending unemployment by creating 1 million new czars, an though he is well on the way, this is no joke.
The current administration seems to feel that the normally elected officials and appointees confirmed by the Senate are not reliable enough so the manmadegod has incorporated czars to handle the business of government. They are...

The list is impressive, as they wield considerable power and authority over 1.7 trillions of dollars of our tax money. They report only to Obama. They are exempt from oversight, which would overlook them in any case as the oversight committee is leftest itself. All of these positions could come under a cabinet secretary.
Once again I compelled to thank the people of the United States for voting to put Obama in the White House, and a special thanks to those Catholics in name only for their work in creating the American Socialist Experiment.
*How long before the parishes are filled with juring priests?
**Van Jones, 'Green Jobs Czar', is a self-described 'communist' arrested during Rodney King riots
