I'm sure you would be in favor of shrinking the Border Patrol, Customs, and the TSA. Wouldn't affect you much.


The TSA should have never been created. Of course they should be disbanded. The BP and Customs do useful work to keep illegals out.

Fear not friends. It's been obvious for years that government is becoming increasingly impotent and inept. At least they aren't even pretending to be functional anymore (at the top, anyway). Methinks our society is going to shed a lot of complexity going forward, and those who think that's necessarily a good thing haven't spent much time in places where that's going down.

Not good, but necessary and inevitable.

There are societies around the planet far less entitled. The USA has the fallest to fall since it has a society believing in the good life. Most societies on the planet have far less entitled populations and they do not suffer the anxiety you currently see rippling through American culture and society.

Eh, we have rules (laws), we just selectively enforce them. Which is as good as no rules.

I would say we need fewer rules, but to then enforce them fairly.
