Conservatives not sweating Homeland Security shutdown

February 15, 2015

Hard-line House GOP conservatives aren’t worried about a looming Department of Homeland Security shutdown as the deadline for congressional action draws near.

Many of the conservative lawmakers who most want to aggressively challenge President Obama’s executive actions on immigration think that if push comes to shove, a shutdown will be worth the fight.

And at this point, they don’t think there will be any electoral consequences if there is a shutdown.

    Why the hell would there be any “electoral consequences” for them to be doing what we just elected them to do ???????

  • MARYANN33 says:

    Shut it all down and O with it.

  • MARYANN33 says:

    What homeland security??. Are’nt all the people in it Muslims. Doesn’t Isis get reports exactly where we will strike so they can hide..Shut down the traitor prez next and his buddy McNobrain. I believe we will get a large ISIS torture attack in Texas soon.

  • David says:

    We don’t want or need homeland security….shut them down……

    1. I Seigel says:

      What else don’t we need?

      1. MARYANN33 says:

        We don’t need Obama….

        1. DEW says:

          For sure !!!!!

  • Voltair says:

    “Obama Republicans” will fight hammer and tongs to keep amnesty in place since they owe their souls to the Chamber of Commerce. America needs a conservative political party….now!

  • dosadoe says:

    What difference does it make? The borders are wide open right now and the guards are too busy helping illegals process their paperwork to get freebies!

  • henrye37 says:

    No problem. There are thousands of patriots in the country with hunting rifles and scopes that will be willing on a volunteer basis to guard our border well.
    I’m quite sure that the Governors of Texas, Arizona and New Mexico will welcome their help with open arms.
    If California won’t, let them have the whole 25 million .

    1. I Seigel says:

      DHS handles all security at airports, seaports. It provides risk assessment and disseminates information on all terrorists threats. It also includes the Coast Guard and the Secret Service. FEMA is also a part of DHS.

      Can your “thousands of patriots with hunting rifles and scopes” handle all that? If not, STFU.

      1. Terry Rushing says:

        Perhaps it’s time for government to get out of the nursemaid business and let people begin to stand on their own feet and take responsibility for their choices. “Failure to plan on your part does NOT constitute an emergency on my part.”

        1. I Seigel says:

          So you’d want to eliminate food inspection, the CDC, airport and seaport security, the flood insurance program, product and drug safety, water and air testing, workplace safety, mining safety. Let the companies handle that themselves? Market forces? Is that your point of view?

          If your plane crashes because batteries caught fire due to poor design, it’s your fault for not being more careful researching the type of plane you’re flying on?

          If your car airbags don’t work in a crash because of poor design, that’s your fault? You can hire attorneys to look into that?

          If you’re in a skyscraper that gets hit by airplanes, oh well, you shouldn’t have been there that day, right?

          If you lose all your money in a bank that is run by crooks (like in Russia, or WAMU), well then you’re just SOL – you should have been paying more attention.

          Yeah, this “nursemaid business” has gone too far. We’re freedom-loving Americans. Heck, we don’t even need sheriffs and deputies to tell us what to do. If we have a problem, we can just rustle us up our own posses and go after those evildoers.

          1. Terry Rushing says:

            Let me guess: You identify with liberal thinking and likely support democrats.

          2. I Seigel says:

            Let me guess: You don’t have or are unwilling to give a reasonable answer to my reasonable questions.

          3. MARYANN33 says:

            Read food labels and investigate what they let in our food. And all the recent drugs have lawsuits because they are unsafe…Inspecting what???

          4. I Seigel says:

            “All the recent drugs”? Like what?

          5. MARYANN33 says:

            A quick off the top of head reply,,,,all of the blood thinners causing people to die because they are not tested and shown to be unsafe before giving to us as their trial group…
            Trial without our permission..How many lawsuits over drugs do you see on TV??…I got 6,000 from a lawsuit over one drug…

          6. I Seigel says:

            OK, MaryAnn, let’s learn a little about recent history. A quick Google search will find you some information about when the government started to allow pharmaceutical companies to start advertising directly to consumers, like with all those endless TV commercials about this drug and that drug with long lists of side effects. That started, believe it or not, in 2002. Do you recall who was president then? Do you know what the big pharma companies do with a lot of their profits? Lobbying!!!! For less regulations!!! And then you have your “heros” in Congress cutting the budgets of the very agencies that are supposed to do the regulating, lessening the times required for trials and limiting the liabilities of the companies!!! Do you see a pattern here, MaryAnn??

          7. MARYANN33 says:

            Yes, George was a jerk…I hate those ads…Government is in lock step with big Pharma.

          8. DEW says:

            You don’t have any “reasonable questions” you’re just a sick democrap !!

          9. I Seigel says:

            That’s it??!!? That’s the best you can do?? Lame. I’m sure your age matches your IQ.

          10. DEW says:

            Get your sickening ass out of here fool !!!

          11. MARYANN33 says:

            Eliminate food inspection…We have to inspect all our own food anyway. The government has chosen to poison us all with additives and GMOs. I check out everything that goes in my cart….It is exhausting. That is what that food inspection did for me….nothing but okay poison.

          12. I Seigel says:

            And you’re able to test for salmonella and e.coli and botulism? In the aisle of the supermarket, before you even buy the item?!?! Amazing! And you can tell if the beef comes from an animal with mad cow disease!?!? Wow, you are really talented!!

          13. MARYANN33 says:

            I read labels and I know where my food comes from, and I grow a lot of food on my own to avoid what the government allows. I can tell you never have studied our food from our government…You should be afraid of every bite you eat in ignorance.

          14. DEW says:

            Hey libby…what about all the GMO crap that this administration let the FDA (biggest slimebag crooks of all) sicken all of us with. Why the hell you tthink eveybody is so sick over ????

          15. MARYANN33 says:

            You get it. I am so glad to hear someone else gets it…My doc set me on the course to examine our food…She at first said to look at the townspeople and rightfully she was. They do not look well…So I found so much out about our poison foods many with roundup ingredients in them..I am even cautious of what I feed my animals….I grow all the food I can so I know what is in that.

          16. I Seigel says:

            You have GOT to be kidding!! Did you just crawl out from your cave, R Van Winkle? You think THIS administration let GMO sicken all of us? Have you ever heard of Monsanto, Cargill, ADM (Archer-Daniels Midland)? They are HUGE contributors to Republican politicians, SuperPACS, the Heritage Foundation, etc. They’ve been doing GMO for YEARS and slowly buying their way into Congress to allow for deregulation of the food supply. And for what purpose? Pure profit, that’s all. So thank the Kochs and all your other “heros” for this attack on our liberties and our health. As I said, it’s all part of their vast conspiracy to sicken and weaken what’s left of the middle class so that they can amass ever greater quantities of wealth and power.

          17. DEW says:

            It would probably work out better than that halfrican fags administration !!!

      2. MARYANN33 says:

        We need to be rid of Fema…It is corrupt.

        1. I Seigel says:

          Yes, certainly the folks in New Orleans and New Jersey weren’t helped by corrupt FEMA. And all those people flooded out of there homes along the Mississippi. And all those burned out of their homes in Texas.

          1. MARYANN33 says:

            That is absolutely right.

      3. DEW says:

        Hey liberal….BS they do nothing of the sort. If they did we wouldn’t have half the problems we do now. Illegals and terrorist comming here at will…where the hell is the DHS ????????

    2. MARYANN33 says:

      McCain would have a fit if we went to close our border in Arizona. He wants the huge amnest and more…He is a traitor, a big one. Ask the guys who were in prison over there with him.

  • WiSe GuY says:

    Shut it down now.

    1. Terry Rushing says:

      I could not have said it better. “Homeland security” along with the “Patriot Act” was a knee jerk, ill advised reaction to 9/11. It is a tremendous sponge, sucking up untold tax dollars for no return. I can think of not a single instance where “Homeland Security” has improved our internal security. That organization’s only notable accomplishment is to become a handmaiden to the unconstitutional president’s illegal open border policy. Shut ’em down permanently (including the worthless TSA) and stop funding the federal unionized employees, as well as all the “free” stuff they are handing out for no appreciable return in the quest to federalize all police. .

      1. JIMBO says:

        Terry your your stealing my ‘comment’. ADD: I would reign-in the EPA’s power, abolish Dept. of Education and Replace the IRS with a Flat-Tax.
        Peace with Prayers But carry a BIG STICK,
        GoTo: RUNBENRUN

        1. Terry Rushing says:

          Amen! Also add the politically oriented CDC who have no trouble at all “cooking the books” to produce desired “facts” and FEMA who feel that God himself must consult with them.

      2. DEW says:

        I whole hearteningly agree !
