It wasn't "lazy government employees" who did not protect us from 9/11, it was the Bush Crime Syndicate, who was warned of it at least a month prior to it occurring, and then doing NOTHING. Personally, I believe that they let it happen, so that they could start this stuff, and turn this country into a Police State!
The whole thing should be disbanded. If you look at the money, you will find that the full body scanners that are used by airports comes from a company that was started by the former head of DHS, Michael Chertoff.
This tells me that the DHS was only formed to rip off the public, and put the money into the pockets of corporate cronies. It also tells me that they want the public to be more fearful of things, so that they can further monitor their whereabouts, in an attempt to further control them. Get rid of them, and replace them with something more constructive.
Ben Franklin said, "He who sacrifices freedom for security deserves neither." We are sacrificing freedom for security here in the US, so therefore we deserve neither!
Why is it that these "small government" RapeubliCONs want to create bigger government to take away our free speech?
And why do they say that government is the problem, then when elected, go and prove it with their stupid ideas??
Inquiring minds want to know.
