    This better be good. Because it is not going away.

    •  A bit OT. Small rural town where I was born. A man (3+ / 0-)

      owns and lives in a large dilapidated former hotel.  The city health & safety authorities have condemned the building (probably with legitimate cause)...have been trying to get legal authority to raze the building.  This has been an ongoing back and forth legal proceeding for about 4 years.

      Within the past year, Homeland Security has inserted itself into the whole mess.  Now, my question is: Why is "Homeland Security" involved in this at all? This is a local dispute between a small town and a land owner.

      The name itself, Homeland Security, is ominous.  Lauding words like Fatherland, Motherland and Homeland reeks of recent notorious governments.  It appears that Homeland Security is involving itself (or being invited?) in too many areas that have nothing to do with terrorism, let alone securing this nation.
