No, this is not an Andy Rooney sketch. Just been thinking about the disparity between the rich and poor lately. A question popped into my head on my AM run. Have you ever wondered why we have spent so much money on airport security over other forms of security (or at the expense of say, strengthening levees in NOLA)? Perhaps, it's becuase mostly rich folks fly on a regular basis and the poor are left to fend for themselves?
The epiphany? Perhaps the whole expense and the largess that the W, Rove and Co. has lavished all over the Department of Homeland Security was a complete and utter failure. Proof? NOLA response: Q.E.D. Perhaps the monies distributed to the Homeland Security Office could have been better spent on, say, strengthening levees in NOLA?
Does anyone else feel safer for the existence of the DHS?
Not me, sad to say.
