Hey partly obsessive and compulsive here! Almost daily post articles of interest to my FACEBOOK page with a cryptic comment or two. Enjoy!
And the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee issued forth another almost worthless Authorization bill for DHS. None have become law since DHS was formed. If it ever gets to the HOUSE will be surprised if conference held and if both full Senate and House vote its approval.
How can any competent staff work for this committee? Perhaps when Senator Lieberman retires in 2013 or Senator Susan Collins becomes Chair when Republicans seize Senate in fall of 2012 some well be put out of their misery.
The most interesting provision to me in the legislation is the hiring freeze imposed on all DHS until the national unemployment rate falls below 8%! Folks this is not happening this decade.
