    There are 77.000 of them-up from 160 a few years ago, before the entire exorcise morphed into a congressional porkfest...

    Someone should ask Sen. Patricia Murray if there is any room for cuts in those 3,000+ places in Washington State that could be better used elsewhere.

    It wasn't as issue of partisanship. You cited a Seattle newspaper so I thought it would be relevant to cite one of Washington State's Senators who sits on the Appropriations Committee for Homeland Security. I believe it helps explain why the state of Washington has the 6th most sites on the list.

    That's because the thread is from 2006! This guy Jack is running around like a kid bumping old threads for kicks. I've already reported it.

    One of things that always bothered me about DHS, was how wasteful they have been.. I live in rural RI and a couple of local PD's have sophisticated mobile command centers they drag around, but do not even know how to use.. it is a nice trophy to have, but a waste of our money.

    I can see this stuff in urban areas or areas that may be high priorities.. but for the most part they are outthere in east bumf..ck USA.

    I know a police officer, and when we go on campouts he brings the latest homeland security trophies.. usually the newest most sophisticated night vision stuff.. it is amazing to see the stuff they have, but most of it is locked away just in case.

    That is sad. It's almost as if we enjoy fighting amongst ourselves and avoid the real issues. Hell, it's easy to argue and attack.

    While what he's doing is wierd, does it warrant reporting? Is he breaking some kind of rule? Who cares if he bumps old threads. Sometimes it's nice to look back at what some of us were saying.

    OK lets prepare for an idiotic diatribe on something two years old, but still a salient issue.. the problem is that the initial posts are no longer valid and difficult to argue.

    Actually, Uncle Sam doesn't have your back, the scratch card you just purchased is probably already void of it's million dollar prize (today's news). The money that was divided up to states was a huge joke. It is comforting to know that the corn fields in Kansas are safe. Of course, there were people on this site which defended that allotment, go figure, right? There is a great quote from a former state official which went to work for Homeland Security. He busted his hump in trying to make our lives safer, and when he brought reports to the top, he was told to only bring them good news (which is exactly what the head of the FBI was stating prior to 9/11, go figure.

    RW...if he actually showed an interest in the topics by posting meaningful comments then of course that's fine. But you can't just get your kicks firing off meaningless comments just to bump a thread.

    I don't look at this board as playground.

    Wouldn't you agree with that?
