Does it bother anyone, but me, that the name “Department of Homeland Security” smacks of some “Nazi” name for one of their state agencies?
Many years ago we had the agency known simply as Civil Defense. Then it became “Emergency Preparedness” and in later years, I lost track.
Seems to me Civil Defense should be reinstated. At lease the name of Homeland Security should be changed to Civil defense.
Of course, I’m not holding my breath until that happens!
I suppose there are enough young Americans who have no memory of the Third Reich that agency names like “Homeland Security” doesn’t stir the soul as it did… not too many years ago.
Why not change The Department of Defense back to The War Department and change Homeland Security’s name to The Defense Department? Just a suggestion.
Words have meaning. Names have meaning. Well, they USED to before Political Correctness. Now everything is clocked in “feel good” phrases that do nothing but hide the truth from public view. But that is an article for another day.
