Who cares about homeland security anyway?

Certainly not our government. Take a look at the latest piece in the New York Observer (via Hit and Run), on homeland security funding in New York.
Not only does the funding across the country have little to do with the likelihood of attacks, but the funding within New York State doesn’t focus on New York City! In fact, some expenditures have had nothing to do with homeland security:

“Officials in Yates and Madison counties said they had strengthened defenses against illicit drug labs.”

The government’s love of the drug war left us unprepared for 9/11, has negatively affected our ability to fight terrorism, and is leaving us less safe every day. For a reminder of some of the other stupidity in this area, see my article from this summer: The Drug War and our response to Terrorism.
