    Dis-band the Department of Homeland Security?

    I say we the people enact legislation to dis-band the DHS. All applicable employees can revert back to their agencies of origin(Border Patrol, Customs, Secret Service, etc.) and we can fire the rest (especially Old Janet). Their yearly allotted budget can be applied to the deficit, and I get dibs on the ammo. What do y'all think?

    It's probably too late to disband DHS. Now they're "too big to fail". It's another example of a knee jerk reaction to a catastrophic event. I don't know why our government loves to do this stuff, but they do. Putting billions into a new agency full of bureaucratic red tape and rules isn't always the best way to go.

    I like the idea of getting rid of DHS though and they can offer the ammo in a big lottery. That alone will put us back in the black for a year or two!

    I just wonder how much 'overhead' is in that department. Managers, general bureaucrats, etc., hired for their political support and not showing up at the office can really waste a lot of money...our money.

    No chance of that ever happening. DHS has become the Domestic Militarized Police Force of the White House. They do not fall under the command of Congress like the military. Think of it like the Gestapo. There's no chance they would ever give it up now.

    Yeah, and then affording proper services for deceased veterans would be narrowed down to a cost issue.

    If it's not a federal duty spelled out in the Constitution, the Feds have no business doing it. We should eliminate all such duties that the federal government has arrogated to itself, DHS would just be the tip of that iceberg.

    I wonder if there is anything to show for the billions and billions of dollars spent by this agency? Have the citizens who foot the bills (you and me) actually gained any security? Opinions?

    Probably impossible to measure... if the DHS has in fact stopped, thwarted, or somehow discouraged an attack on US soil they may not even know about it. And if they did they may not be able to broadcast it. Of course, that is what they would say even if they knew for a fact all the tax dollars had been wasted...

    I'll go along if each departing DHS employee carries an IRS agent under each arm. No wait, make that a member of Congress under each arm! Or maybe just a politician under each arm! No wait, I've got it.........a Colorado Democratic Legislator under each arm and the Governor strategically stuffed into the front of someone's pants! Yeah, that should work out just fine!

    I would like to know just what the current budget is for the DHS. How much has it cost us since it started and what is the rate of growth of that department per year since it started. I think
    if people saw these numbers they would be shocked. Of course there are way to many people who have no idea what the government does or how it spends the money we send them (they take from us).
    If the populace doesn't wake up to what is going on I don't know how we can keep this great country from eventually failing.
