How do you guys feel about Pres. Bush's proposal for a new Cabinet position for Homeland Security? Call me paranoid, but everytime I see or hear the words "Homeland Security" I think of opressive governments. Maybe I spend too much time on the Sci-Fi channel, but I swear Bush's speech last night could have been copied from several movies I have seen where a new "Homeland" protection agency is introduced. Inevitably, this protection agency takes away freedoms and liberty of the people it is trying to protect. Also I hear from the news agencies that this idea is getting a great deal of support from both sides of the aisle in Congress. Anything that gets that much support from congressmen, I view suspiciously. And did I hear right? Durring the speech last night, I could swear Bush basically said that if I didn't support this proposal, I was an unpatriotic coward? And then he urged Congress to "rush" this through? Why? Something this big should be VERY closely examined. Lastly, looking at all the departments covered in this "merger", doesn't FEMA cover nearly 90% of what is proposed? Let me know what you think Mac Community!
