    Well it may not be apparent to civilians, but DHS may be on to something with this. The underwear or "Yahllakabum" as it is called in Arabic, has extensive and powerful meanings to terrorists. It is believed that when one dies for their religious causes God immediately looks at the person's underwear. This is so because spirits are bare naked in the above kingdom.

    So by eradicating underwear DHS is preventing any potential terrorist attack that may have been ready to be put on practice. No religious terrorist can risk taking terrorist risky measures without first assuring themselves decent underwear that would be appealing to God.

    As usual, you miss the point. It should be:

    "Complains the DHS is focusing on the WRONG things". Duh.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    welp, there you go. the patriot act is being used for whatever they want, we have an agency that records literally everything that happens electronically, and the DHS is raiding places to track down fake underwear.

    i am Jack's complete lack of surprise.
    Creating DHS has nothing to do with it. This would happen whether there was or wasnt a DHS. It would just be done under some other name. Govt is the problem, not just parts of govt.

    this argument is identical to a liberal posting "it's corporations that are the problem. not just some corporations." it's not that monochromatic.

    But it is. DHS is simply a symptom of the real problem, which is big government in general. DHS was supposed to be a fix for the problem of many separate departments not communicating which each other. But all it did was add yet another layer to the bureaucracy. The solution is/was the same in both cases. Less govt, less power.

    i don't agree with your bumper sticker slogan conservatism any more than i agree with monochromatic anti-corporate liberalism. reality is much more nuanced.

    Lets start off by pointing out that DHS is the proper agency to handle this

    While knock-off merchandise might not seem to fall under the purview of Homeland Security, ICE says*HSI plays a "leading role in targeting criminal organizations responsible for producing, smuggling and distributing counterfeit products."

    The enforcement, while having nothing to do with immigration, apparently falls within the "customs" mandate of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.*

    Asked why counterfeit merchandise raids like this are handled by ICE, Neudauer explained that U.S. Customs investigators were placed within ICE when the Department of Homeland Security was formed in 2003. Those investigators have jurisdiction over hundreds of federal statutes, mostly involving customs-related issues. ICE also runs an intellectual property rights coordination center.

    A lawsuit would take more time than a cease and desist, it would cost more taxpayer money to have a trial and it would probably bankrupt a small business.

    So in short to satisfy your anti-DHS bloodlust you want to waste time, taxpayer money and destroy a small business. You sir are a monster.

    So, the DHS actually saved this small business from a ruinous lawsuit by raiding their panties and taking them off of he shelf?

    Do you feel more secure knowing that the government has created such a powerful and all encompassing new agency to keep the homeland secure?
