DHS has 225,000 federal employees and has contracts which employ more than 1 million additional workers with a yearly budget of 52 billion dollars and they are ONLY addressing 1 or 2 "homeland" security issues per Secretary of the Department? What a scam all this big goberment is......

Sara, like most lazy, loony, leftist, liberals, buy into the stale talking point that conservative/libertarian/anyone right of Bernie Sanders want no govt whatsoever! While folks like Sara think that those on the right want to kill grandma, grandpa, the grand kids, rabbits and puppies, those based in the real world know better.

If you desire a real man, just look to the right!!

Okay, wayyyyyyyyy right!!!

Obama's DHS goes after constitutionalist Americans, not Islamoterrorists.

Sara is not Obama's type anyway. He is in love with Reggie Love.

Moochella and the kids are all for show, Obama likes a real hard girly boy too!

SaraLewinski “Where can a gal find a real, hard man?”

You’re two Presidents too late, Sara. And besides, Moochelle would kick your double-wide back to Warwood if you even looked sideways at her $10,000-a-plate meal ticket. Take a lesson from Martinique-exiled Vera Baker – you don't want to go there. LOL

SaraP 3000+ dead bodies and 3 smoking holes in the ground says YES we DO need a government to protect us. ALso this little document called, ahem, the US CONSTITUTION "provide for the Common Defense" is the only real enumerated duty of the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, as opposed to STATE governments.

I think the CIA NSA Spooks used this to railroad the country into Patriot Act.

But da Messiah, the Panty Waste in Chief, RENEWED IT in TOTAL after seeing it in operation for 8+ years.

Mainly because it gives HIM the power of GOD to spy on political enemies. He could give a rats butt less about terrorists.

The Arabs were scared SPITLESS of George W after he put BOOTS ON THE GROUND as well as CRUISE MISSLES in their houses.

They KNOW Opie is all mouth no action other than those Drone nuisances.

If you guys weren't such pansies we would have never had to relinquished half our freedoms to George B and Dork C after the relatively small incident 9-11, but you were scared and trembling and NEEDED the governmant you despise to protect you. Where can a gal find a real, hard man?

Obama will set the highest priority as going after TERRORIST GROUPS like the Tea Party, NRA, FoxNews, etc.

clueless, Probably had to work 40 hours per week in the "public" sector! After his stint he will likely join the long list of ex-department heads that open up shop and get some of those 600 billion dollars of goberment contracts! Take a pay-cut for a few years to get in on those "easy" never ending tax dollars.

Get aclue- If what you say is still true then why do so many people ebter service of country either Senate or Rep. and come out with millions when they had very little going in Check out Nancy, Ranngle and many many many more. Did you know they are except from insider trading laws? They make the rules and buy or sell positions before laws go into arrect. They aboce all should be the 1st to prosecute for insider trading since they are making the rules. So thats what the do for our country, it is nice to think that and I'm syre some are there for that purpose but many come out with lots more money than they went in with and way more than the pay they receive mabye he wanted the Obama care exclusion for being in the govt. who knows?

"Johnson earned more than $2.6 million from his partnership at that law firm, according to 2009 government financial disclosure documents."

Just goes to show how "lucrative" these goberment positions are! Why would someone leave a job that pays $2.6 million for a position that pays $191,300?
