Homeland Security is never mentioned as to cost of this new agency created after 9/11. Add that to the spending of 2 wars and prescription drug benefit program.

Don’t touch my program… go after someone else’s entitlement program.

We blew that way up and spent stupid because of our fear. The best thing we could do is privitize TSA and just cut entirely DHS. I mean what the hell are the FBI and CIA for?

You need to understand that the employees of the federal government are largely members of the opposition party, regardless of who is in power. They would rather have the opposition fail than to succeed at helping the country. The myth that the feds are primarily liberals is a lie just as the myth that the press is liberal is a lie. What is true is that liberal tend to be better educated and thus tend to be more effective as government workers and as reporters, and so are particularly disliked by the right for their ability to debunk the lies that come from the right.

Of course the liberals are in fact very nieve, and Claire Broido Johnson probably could not believe that people would really rather hurt the country than let the opposition succeed.

Why don’t you write them yourself?
