DHS is all-hazards, and these children are going to be taught about how to not talk to strangers, to prepare 72-hour provision kits, to plan fire
escape plans, tornado/earthquake/hurricane plans, and how to dial "0" or "911".
Have you really read the posts, before you pulled the trigger on your shotgun?
First of all, those tasks that you mentioned should be performed by the PARENTS. AS I STATED in one of my posts above, my wife and I have done all of
those things for our children, and when our grandchildren visit us, our grandchildren. In addition, as TheRedneck so eloquently pointed out, it
should be done with parental care and love, so as not to frighten the children. You may have co-authored graduate-level courses(Is that supposed to
impress us?-big deal, I taught them), but I will tell you, you CANNOT talk to a 3 or 4 year old like you can to a grad student! Three and Four year
olds can have night terrors if you don't put things in a gentle, non-threatening way. One poorly placed phrase, and you have traumatized a child for
life. Scold a grad student, and they go out and have a few beers.
Most of the people involved with DHS are either ex-military or they push for local control and limiting government... but one thing is certain -- tt
is quite polarized, just as the American people are.
So you are saying the DHS is incompetent to handle their tasks? ALL THE MORE REASON not to let them handle this one.
So stupid comments like "turn in your parents if they are Democrats" is so far off-based that they are infantile.
Maybe so however if you had been in Germany during the 1930's, you might not have been so sure of your statement.
Can it happen here? Yes, if we don't guard against it. Remember, Hitler didn't go full-blown at the start. He slowly unfurled his sails. Hitler was
elected because many people didn't do their homework. How many people today know exactly what Obama or McCain plan to do, if elected? Specifics, not
generalities. I submit to you that our electorate is more concerned with what a great Orator a 2-year senator is. I know of someone else that was a
great orator in Germany in the 1930's. Guess what, the press in Germany was in love with him, just like the love affair of the MSM today with
Also, comments like automobile accidents kill more than terrorism? These are toddlers and kindergarteners. So newsflash *THEY CAN"T DRIVE* Are you
Yes, I did not make that statement, but I did disagree, and addressed it in a post above.
The damage done in the public school systems to our children are orders of magnitude worse than DHS working with Sesame Street.
I agree with you on that. However, life does not have to be an EITHER/OR, or as Boole would say, an EXCLUSIVE OR. If you had been around, you could
have participated in my thread about Homeschooling, and how the CA Supreme Court OUTLAWED it in CA.
Children are across the board indoctrinated into liberal worldviews and garbage that is much more of a threat to our rights than DHS ever has been.
I also agree with that statement, and those that know my posts, are aware of that. Again though, we don't need a Boolean "exclusive or".
Homeland Security being a right-wing conspiracy?
I certainly don't think it is a "right-wing" conspiracy. What I do think, though, is that together with the Patriot Act, there is too much room for
potential abuse, to give them additional tasks. I say that as a person that believes the Constitution of the United States has been compromised by the
Patriot Act. The quicker that ACT is thrown out, the better. Like most people, I want to catch the terrorists, and prevent terrorism. However, taking
away freedoms from 300,000,000 Americans is not the way to do that.
By the way, if you don't like to discuss conspiracies, then perhaps ATS is not for you:
