  • Areas for DHS to Cut Spending
    Radar Tech
    Maybe they could cut back on their ammunition purchases...you know, something reasonable like 500,000,000 rounds of hollow point ammunition instead of 2 BILLION rounds of ammunition. They would still have enough to fight an active war in Iraq for 10 years with the 500 million rounds...that should be enough for domestic security guard duty. Oh, and they could back out of buying the 2,700 armored vehicles...enough for over 50 in each state...enough to equip 10 "armored" divisions of DHS. I don't think we really need all that for a police force. We have the National Guard. States have their SWAT teams already. So let's scale back and offer what they really need...intelligence work to find terrorist cells in the country. We don't need a "domestic civilian army" to run amok in the USA.

    all Federal agencies and departments should furlough all of their employees for 22 days just like our elected leaders wanted in the first place. Let it be a reminder to all of the leadership of our country that let the nation down.

  • Increase cyber workforce? More pork hidden by fear mongering
    Honest Broker
    Here we go again. Let's use fear mongering to justify more outsourcing that apparently has not worked up to now. I wonder how many cyber security and intel programs exist out there? Oh yeah, it's got to be kept secret so we cannot gauge whether its worth it or its just another way taxpayer slop trough for the politicians friends.

  • Drone for Honest Broker - Another waste of taxpayer money
    Honest Broker
    LockMart is only one of the many big and small companies lapping at the trough of cyber security, so I could have many enemies. You will notice the Chinese put all their experts in one group instead of 100's, so they collaborate and know what the H is going on. Guess what, they are Govt employees and they are quite effective. Contracting out Govt operations means that same skill set is leaking out into private sector applications and right into the hands we do not want it. But what Corp America wants, Corp America gets. Ask Capitol Hill.

  • BI Investigations
    govgeek
    DHS should fix their redundant and expensive BI process.I transferred jobs within DHS and was contacted by a contractor telling me I need to go through a complete BI again (2nd one in three years). This is costly not mention the backgrounds of these contractors that have access to all of our personal information.
