Oh come on

"At an all-day White House conference on "environmental justice," Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced that her department is creating a new task force to battle the effects of climate change on domestic security operations."

So this is how the liberal Democrats are going to advance their agenda despite the results of the recent election - ruling by bureaucratic fiat "for security reasons".  Just imagine the power they think they're going to wield by taking this tack:

Banning phosphates in dishwasher detergent - a Homeland Security issue

Protecting the endangered Northeastern speckled whateveritis - a Homeland Security issue

Pushing a tax-raising, business-killing "cap-and-trade" agreement - a Homeland Security issue

Draconian new hunting and/or fishing regulations - a Homeland Security issue

Pretty much anything under the sun they can think up that they wish to control - a Homeland Security issue

And so on.

Think we're kidding?

"The all day White House Forum on Environmental Justice also included talks by White House Council on Environmental Quality Chair Nancy Sutley, EPA Administrator Lisa P. Jackson, Attorney General Eric Holder, Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar, Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis, and Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius."

That's a significant part of the current administration right there who are no doubt drooling over acquiring some wide-ranging new powers, all solely for protecting the environment, of course.

The possibilities are endless, and the we dumb chumps naturally will be lectured to shut up and accept these edicts "for our safety".

We wonder if this means that the peasants are soon going to have to go through TSA-style screening in order to enter our national parks.  Can't have some prohibited soap in the campsite, you know.

And if it wasn't for the loser Republican party and the people who vote for them (cough, cough, Tea Party) we wouldn't have a Dept of Homeland Security.

The biggest thing wrong with our Dept of Homeland Security is the woman who sits as head of it. She didn't secure anything (other than her own gubernatorial re-election through a series of photo ops and politially correct crap) when she was governor of Arizona, and she sure as shootin' isn't actually working to secure anything now... tho' she sure huffs and puffs about it alot. ~Teri, from Arizona

By the way, if you are the commenter I think you are, you need to get a moniker other than "anonymous" to differentiate your thoughtful remarks from the trolls. You add a lot to this blog.
