On the subject of the dipshits at DHS, we can now count on

people using the trains to get more of the molestation and other abuse airplane passengers have been dealing with.

Because 'safety' and 'security'.  They require you to be felt up, abused, threatened, and your stuff stolen because you wanted to take a trip.

While we're talking about federally-run idiots, let's go to getting rid of the EPA, too:
Managers at the Environmental Protection Agency were aware of the possible risk for a catastrophic “blowout” at an abandoned mine that could release “large volumes” of wastewater laced with toxic metals, according to internal documents released late Friday.
As noted before, a engineer wrote about this a while BEFORE the idiocy happened; if you think these idiots weren't aware of the possibility...  And apparently weren't too worried about it:
Much of the text in the documents released Friday was redacted by EPA officials, according to The Associated Press. Among the items blacked out is the line in a 2013 safety plan for the Gold King job that specifies whether workers were required to have phones that could work at the remote site, which is more than 11,000 feet up a mountain.
Because why would you worry about someone being able to call out in the event of a problem?  Or a disaster?

Well, hell, why is this a surprise?  There were already reports that the company said it had migrated the data to another server before it wiped the original.  My question still stands: if the EffingBI actually cared about doing this right, why didn't that information result in a warrant for that other server, and anything else that might have had connection to it?

Howdy, Hope your weekend was good. I agree with you about getting rid of some of these ABC government organizations. Now, which one should go first. Or, Can you list your top 10 for elimination?
I would love to see the Dept of Education be eliminated. That would force the state to take back their responsibility for education. Although, I could see where some good could come out if the executive branch would list the things that should be taught; like civics.
