How many more dozens of billions are going to border patrol programs that don't actually patrol the border in any way, shape or form?

Obama Claims Border Fence 'Basically Complete' But It's Only 5% Finished

So Fox News said two weeks ago that the border fence is a sham, but Republicans just forked over ANOTHER $42.3 Billion without even asking any questions.

Ahhhh ... the raw sewage stench of Washington. Ain't nothin' like it.

Talk about a place to save taxpayer money.The Patriot Act and Homeland security are both a waste of taxpayer money as well as a duplication of services.With all the law enforcement agencys we have,why have homeland security?They are ones to cut,not Social Security or Medicare that actually help citizens.Homeland Security is simply a cause of the deficit.We already have 92 different agancys who are supposed to be protecting the United States from terrorists and criminals.They did a good job.We were never attacked until we had Homeland Security and our enemys saw the weakness of thier operations.

This is almost as much as we spent on illegal Mexicans and muslims - each year.

The funding will also encourage TSA agents to be more aggressive in their 'patt downs' of small children and other innocent airline passengers.

Muslims get a free pass.
Women can dress as Cousin It (Addams Family) and men can wear their ceremonial garb without being searched.

After all, we don't want to offend the terrorists.

Remember....people keep warning. Books and literature have been written for centuries and longer and even simplified in recent years to fit the modern age. We are following the basic script to a police state. Now you keep partying.

Maybe I misread but it looks to me like they cut 3.2 billion.

This $42.3 Billion is $3.2 Billion less than last year's BUDGETED spending for DoHS. But they conveniently omit the $13.2 Billion in addiditional "emergency appropriations" that wasn't budgeted.

That way they can pretend to be cutting, while - as usual - doing what Congress does: Funneling money to federal contractors ... and telling gullible fools that they're actually accomplishing something.

Correct! But the cuts will look impressive to some who don't look at the off budget spending and emergency appropriations. An ounce of image is worth a pound of performance ... to politicians. OOoops, they are performing for their lobby.
Gunny, you must have spent some time around lawmakers.

THE UNITED STATES ECONOMY IS IN A FREE-FALL, WITH NO RECOVERY IN SIGHT, AND THE CITIZENS WILL PROBABLY HAVE TO EXERCISE THEIR CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO FORM A MILITIA AS THE SECOND AMENDMENT TO THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION ALLOWS AND MARCH ON WASHINGTON.
