A critical new congressional audit shows that the only thing Homeland Security civilian contractors don't do is swear in the new employess for whom they have written job descriptions, hired & oriented to new jobs. Kinda like the fox in the henhouse, no?

The age old question: CUI BONO? (WHO BENEFITS?)

This is outrageous. Our own government agency seems unwilling to run itself and allows civilian contractors to make important decisions AND implement them.

BOO HISS!

Noted. Everyone is so busy watching his/her backside and putting out all of the little fires and terrified of repercussions against themselves and/or their loved ones that few are going to stand up to the politics of fear and challenge these things. I am so darn happy I do not live in D.C. where I don't even have a vote to be stolen!

Bush told Bob Woodward he thought he was on a mission from God to start WWIII. He's trying to do it while looking nonchalant. It IS his mission in his mind. He has told us in so many words. He thinks it is his mission from God to start WWIII...what are WE waiting for?

Privatizing all aspects of govt. must mean he is getting closer to his agenda And congress and democrats and the senate cant be deaf and dumb...They must see their own fortunes in it..

Otherwise why are we having early debates when we should be having impeachment?

Who in Govt. is representing the people? Who?

When did the contractors hired by the government stop overcharging us for everyday items? The defense department is one of the worst perpetrators of this. Why on earth when he pay so much in taxes is it even neccessary to hire outside help? 800,000 workers without the proper credentials.......UNBELIEVABLE!
