    The DHS is a money pit. It has outrageously high expense levels and ridiculously low results…By any reasonable and realistic measure of performance, it should already have been dismantled and Sec. CaughtNapping given an unceremonious firing without pension.

    This is the agency that over rides posse comitatus.

    DHS Budgets:
    FY 2004 Budget: $36.2 Bn
    FY 2005 Budget: $40.2 Bn
    FY 2006 Budget: $41.1 Bn
    FY 2007 Budget: $42.7 Bn
    FY 2008 Budget: $46.4 Bn
    FY 2009 Budget: $50.5 Bn
    FY 2010 Budget: $55.1 Bn
    FY 2011 Budget: $56.3 Bn
    FY 2012 Budget: $56.9 Bn
    FY 2013 Budget: $59.0 Bn

    So, don’t try to place this at the feet of the Republicans alone Mechanic. Your imperious leader has done just as much to increase the spending of DHS as his predecessor. Here’s the major difference, though. from 2004-2008, we weren’t in a massive recession. From 2009 to today, we were. It also dispels your concept that Republicans were the ones who are so spendthrift.

    Last time Congress was controlled by Republicans, we had a budget. I don’t think we’ve had a budget since Obama’s been in office. I wonder why that is.

    Simply put, saying “the Republicans did it” is not a valid argument when facts tell a different story. At the same time, it’s childish to excuse one bad behavior with the bad behavior of someone else. “But he did it!” is not a valid line of logic, because it’s petty and immature. I don’t care how you word it, that’s what you’re doing. Hell, that’s what 3/4 the Democratic party is doing. Come up with why your actions are valid on their own, don’t try to give your garbage decisions a pass because another person made the same garbage decisions.

    Now you stop that!
    The Mech would rather practice his patented demagoguery.
    Have you ever seen him once be critical of the democratic party or accept facts when confronted with them? No, he would rather re-frame the argument or “move the goal post” to make it look like he in on the side of right.
    At least the other liberal trolls here admit to their bias, he claims to be centrist but fails when challenged on it. He accuses the right of spewing hate and lies, but fails to acknowledge when he himself has done the same. He accuses the right of being racist but fails to acknowledge his own racists tendencies. Remember Mech, when you use the phrase token when referring to someone of color, you are racist.

    He is sadly amusing at times though . . .

    DHS is a product of “Bipartisan Cooperation”.
    -
    Is Bipartisanship what you really want?

    The truth has no place in Ramirez’s world. The Obama Administration has deported 1.5 times as many illegal aliens then Bush did in the same time period:

    Hi Wraithkin,

    Actually the last time a budget was passed was January 29th of 2009. Nine days after the Blessed Holy One (BHO) was inaugurated for the first time.

    Why don’t you do some legwork and find out?

    This cartoon is not supported by the statistics. But it’s – therefor – a good example of Mr. Ramirez work…

    Not to mention the Billions on rounds of ammo “for training”.

    And? Until the number is 110% of the illegal immigration level (i.e. exporting more than we’re importing), it’s not going to be enough.
