In addition to the thousands and thousands of county and municipal police, security guards, state troopers, FBI, BATF, CIA, NSA, Secret Service, airport security, Coast Guard, Marines, Navy, Air Force, Army, Special Forces, and cross-walk guards… now the Department of Homeland Security is officially open for business. We feel so much safer; for every scrawny terrorist hidden in the caves of Afghanistan, there are now at least 10,000 more fat derrieres right out in the open – in cushy office chairs spread across the nation.
