misplaced loyalties

If the heads of the departments that make the decisions to NOT suspend questionable people from its ranks, should these names be made public, and pressure put to bear that THEY need to be fired as showing disloyalty to America?

If I, as a citizen, am relying on these departments to oversee, maintain and provide security and they are being lax and politically correct to the detriment of safety, why aren't people in the know - with the power to bring change actively and publicly doing something as opposed to allowing yet more rediculous policies be implemented such as questioning 2000 + chaplains. A waste of time, effort, money, man-power and good sense.

Does the entire governing body need to be removed? Where is our logic in allowing and promoting Islamist fundamentalists to be chaplaining in prisons to angry, anti-social predators?

There are equally nonsensical views coming from our highest courts that make me wonder - who really is trying tio undermine America. People trying to escape what they feel is living under a tryrant - and make their way here in rafts - we send them back. But people coming across our borders ILLEGALLY - of questionable motives, possibly only for jobs, are given education, drivers licenses and a ticket to meld in to the tax paying, legal resident, social services - society.

Our liberal, democratic, politically correct promoters are going to bring the demise of AMERICA as we know it. What it will morphose into does not appear to be a safer, more educated, or a more viable country ready to face the 21st C. with any degree of security.
