Homeland "Security", Mission Creep, and Totalitarianism

Oh, yes, ALL those words belong together in that headline.

...Our Nation’s vision of homeland security is a homeland safe and secure, resilient against terrorism and other hazards, and where American interests and aspirations and the American way of life can thrive. In seeking to fulfill this vision, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) aspires to avoid burdening minority and low- income populations with a disproportionate share of any adverse human health or environmental risks associated with our efforts to secure the Nation....

Some of you may have (stupidly) thought that "environmental justice" was not part of body-groping and nudie-scanning at airports.

Now you know better!

By the way, "environmental justice" is another term which cannot be defined.  IOW, it's a license for more totalitarianism from the Obozo Regime.

Exactly. But please: in your detestation of the Swine-in-Chief and his Party of Creeps, Idiots and Poofs, a detestation which I share, don't forget that the Republicans are every bit as complicit in this emerging despotism as the Democrats. It was, after all, Bush who brought us the worst of these "homeland security" novelties; the Democrats are just making it worse.

and a Romney, a Gingrich and a Santorum (I'm sorry to say) will, if elected, make it even worse than it is now. Both Parties (the Stupid Party and the Evil Party)are of one mind on this thing.
