Disclaimer- I do not read the Huffington Post Concerned about homeland security? I came across this article and as a tax payer, citizen and father (Coastie Dad) was horrified to learn that the Obama budget calls for cutting the Coast Guards already shamefully low budget. The Coast Guard is using 40 year old planes and cutters and they are being held together with duct tape! Please help me in spreading the word about Obama cutting the budget of one of only a few government agencies that is actually efficient, effective and dose not waist a penny! http://www.huffingtonpost.com/david-helvarg/save-the-coasties_b_456063.html Thank you!
