Smackledorfer: snocone: The United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is a cabinet department of the United States federal government, created in response to the September 11 attacks, and with the primary responsibilities of protecting the United States of America and U.S. territories (including Protectorates) from and responding to terrorist attacks, man-made accidents, and natural disasters. Despite the Department of the Interior's name, DHS is the equivalent to the Interior ministries of other countries, not the Department of the Interior. In fiscal year 2011, DHS was allocated a budget of $98.8 billion and spent, net, $66.4 billion.Yuuup, right there, protect the PROFITS of the NFL.Plain as day.This country is now just a mercenary force for the Rich and Famous.Customs and Border Protection is part of the dhs umbrella.Do you think we should have no customs agents?If we have them, why shouldn't they share info closely with more terror-oriented agencies?Your post implies you think corporations bought an anti-terror agency and twisted them to enforce customs laws. Customs has been managing ports since before you were born.
Alphax: I have no idea why 'homeland security' would care about such things.
BronyMedic: Alphax: I have no idea why 'homeland security' would care about such things.As pointed out before, there's a lot more to the Department of Homeland Security than just the TSA and airport police.Fecal Conservative: Thanks Guys! I feel that the homeland is now more secure from capitalist scum.It's a lot more complicated than that, actually. A lot of counterfeit goods trace back to organized crime, slave labor, and terrorist elements, and the money is funneled back into them from the sales. There's a reason that this stuff is sold on street kiosks and through ebay, and not through legitimate retail storefronts.
