this maybe the only thing Dick Cheney and I agree on!

the youngest of the federal departments, the DHS is the largest by employee count

Its divisions and agencies are now largely leaderless, because the White House refused to nominate senior managers to replace those who have left. Quick, who is the secretary of homeland security?

The DHS has become synonymous with unsympathetic government overreach, malevolence and dysfunction.

the solution? Integrating the current Customs and Border Protection agency and Immigration and Customs Enforcement into one coherent organization could open opportunities for more attractive career ladders, as well as creating cost savings.

I called that when Chimpola Bush created it in '02....A shame that there are so few of the Hannity crew around anymore, so that I can rub their noses in it

the reason there's not more violence out there is not because of government agencies, it's because the people don't want to commit violence

We really need to get rid of atleast 75% of the government. It has grown into a huge spiderweb, invading all of our freedoms and liberties.

Dick eventually became skeptical of DHS, i swear to God it's true, though i don't have a link to prove it, though i did try to find one
