Why Does Homeland Security need bagpipes and drums?

With the traditional use by fire and police departments for funerals of fallen “heroes” I would guess that they are planning on losing a lot of their gestapo agents!

  1. Maybe they plan to march down the streets in formation like the british did when they TRY to take our guns.Good luck we all know how that worked out.

  2. OH!,… GOOD!!

    I’m glad to see DHS has its funeral guard ready.

    Now,.. its up to all loyal Americans to make sure they are kept busy!!!

    JD – US Marines – The only problem,… Traitors don’t deserve a funeral honor guard…..

    The better question would be, Why does Homeland Security need anything? They are unconstitutional. They submit to NO authority and they constantly look for an excuse to call someone or even their pet dog a terrorist to justify their existence. So again, why do we need Homeland Security?

    Oh wait! I know why. The drums are to beat Janet Napolitano over the head with, while the bagpipes are for her farewell song on the way to Hell.
