    There are aspects of behavior on the part of DHS and Janet Napolitano that remind me of a cult. One of them is the constant hyping of threats from without in order to control those within. Others include group-think hallmarks such as thought-stopping clichés, constant "retraining", obsession with secrecy concerning doctrine and practices, and secret hit-lists of supposed "enemies." The ruthlessness with which the quash whistleblowers of every stripe is chilling.

    They're a creepy bunch, particularly given their federal powers and federal funding.

    One of them is the constant hyping of lying about threats from without in order to control those within.

    Fixed it for you.

    We need to stop glamorizing "terrorism" and call it what it really is: criminality

    But then we couldn't run around screaming, "The Terrorists! The Terrorists Are Coming!"

    The Founding Fathers truly were brilliant:

    It's tough to belly up to the trough of DHS funding if small town police departments can't arrest teenagers for supposed terroristic activity.
