Really? That's What We Need To Spend Time and Money On?

From our "You've gotta be shitting me" Department

Napolitano Says DHS to Begin Battling Climate Change as Homeland Security Issue
At an all-day White House conference on "environmental justice," Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced that her department is creating a new task force to battle the effects of climate change on domestic security operations.
“Many USCG [Coast Guard] and Customs and Border Protection facilities, by their mission, are located in the coastal zone which will be adversely impacted by sea level rise.  Costs will increase for protecting existing facilities from the impacts of sea level rise and some facilities might have to be abandoned in the longer term.”
You're going to start spending money on making sure that coastal facilities don't get flooded when the sea level starts to rise?
So - Jan-Nut, what are you going to threaten the the sea with- Backscatter radar and pat downs?

This is what we need to spend time and money on? This and outlawing school bake sales?

Between the bullshit activities by idjits like Big Sis, and the crap that the outgoing criminals Congress are passing, I am in fear for the country that my daughter will be living as she grows up.

By the way,  what the hell happened to the 20th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, ratified on Jan. 23, 1933 that was supposed to kill lame duck sessions?
Easy coast-to-coast transportation made it easy to circumvent the provisions of the 20th Amentment.

Letting politicians who got defeated return to DC and vote on more bills is like sending convicted pedophiles back to Chuck E. Cheese for a couple of months before they have to go to jail.

We need to reinstate the spirit of the lame duck killer 20th Amendment...
