Thanks to Jenna for pointing out this bill:
Greeaattt... one more thing for DHS to do. They already are part of the drug war, are trying to stop illegal music copying (that's economic terrorism after all), and keep people from selling t-shirts that disparage FEMA, so why not this too?
Just one question? What's the definition of "touching on national security" anyway? To most politicians, this will make "homeland security" even more of a useless buzz phrase than it already is. Every time a deal comes around that might adversely affect their district, they'll be bandying about the homeland security reason to block it. This is pathetic.
We have been throwing around that phrase way too much. We've thrown it around so much, that it has become absolutely useless. Politicians are quickly becoming the boys who cried homeland security, and the wolves are licking their chops.
