    Good. DHS was a theatrical response to 9/11. Its military mission belongs to NORTHCOM and its law enforcement one to the FBI.

    I would like the DHS gone, too, and yes, that includes the TSA.

    Pretty incredible how the rest of the world's airports are doing just fine - actually better - without a monstrosity of an organization like the TSA at the helm harassing people

    I would like it to stay because I was told by republicans that it plays a vital role to our nations security, if it goes then it makes them liars.

    Ein blindes Huhn findet auch mal ein Korn.

    (BTW, the OCD in me sends its regards, @Ten Lubak, and would like to point out that if we attribute these sayings to @Dayton3 most of the time, then he must be right an awful lot.)

    Yes please.
    For once my wife made it thru security at the airports this weekend, but, even tho we had "pre-check" tickets, I got pulled for a random check of my phone. It took 10 minutes to get a spare agent to do it while I stood to the side of the line. My phone, meanwhile, had gone thru the conveyor belt in my carry-on, and was in my wife's hands, waiting on the other end of the whole shebang.

    Oh, and just to put the point on it, buying an airline ticket does not constitute probable cause for a search. So, yanno . . .

    Does anyone really trust A.O.C. to make any sort of rational or balanced approach to anything? I foubt she even knows what the DHS does and wrongly thinks she can just end those government functions.

    Yes.

    When measured against a government consisting almost entirely of criminals, religious extremists and conspiracy theorists she holds up very well indeed, not to mention being a very talented communicator.

    Yep. It's the liar's advantage. Make up enough bullshit about your opponent, and people will believe there is something wrong with them "in general" even though every single individual story is exposed as completely bogus.
