The idea of making a department, doing a lot of transactions, and then dissolving a department, and profiting from it, that is a business not a government, which I would find offensive. So if Obama goes through his term and the department disappears when he's done, then I would say it was on the purpose of being underhanded to the interests of the entire country. It's an experimental thing anyways, every day, of let's see how far this can go before it gets shut down.
At the moment if DHS were shut down and then the Utah data center pops up, run by Napolitano and filled with former employees of DHS, under a new government alphabet name, that's when I'd call shenanigans.
Of all the things that could be dissolved to bring stability to the country, DHS is not the first thing I'd choose. Not the last thing either. NSA seems more dissolvable right now.
