They should probably ALSO combine part of the ATF.

A = Alcohol (that's a food)
T = Tobacco (that's a vegitable)

The F = Firearms, should be under the jurisdiction of Homeland Security

<I never understood how on earth the government could combine a department for alcohol, tobacco and firearms -- whatever the reason, it is CERTAINLY out of date today>

Sounds like a great idea to merge these companies.

Since both of them have been bought by(Monsanto, DuPont,Pfizer, et al.)corporations, they can share a PO Box to receive marching orders from their corporate handlers.
