It's Budget Monday

Yesterday was budget Monday. I'll be parsing the numbers over the upcoming month.

Department of Homeland Security gets an 8% increase, including a billion dollars for ... a fence in ... where else, Texas. I've started to wonder how much the DHS is turning into the Department of Whitehouse Pork, ever since Houston, TEXAS, made it to the Tier 1 of cities with critical infrastructure that international terrorists are after (I thought al-qa'ida were mostly after symbolic targets?).

Anyway, a new category in the GWOT, "dangerous people".

DHS Budget history.
