How about getting rid of both?

The White House on Thursday released its plan to merge the Departments of Education and Labor into a single Cabinet agency, moving ahead on President Trump’s “drain the swamp agenda” as his administration looks to do away with a long list of overlapping regulations and department functions.

The wide-ranging reorganization plan  was formally unveiled during the president’s cabinet meeting on Thursday by Director of the Office of Management and Budget Mick Mulvaney. It also includes moving the federal food stamp program to the Department of Health and Human Services and restructuring the Postal Service, among other changes.

  1. While they're at reconfiguring cabinets lets re name the "Department of Defense" back to The "Department of War" the way it was called before and during WW-II. "Defense" sounds sissy, "War" sounds Bad-ass mean it.

    1. . "Defense" sounds sissy, "War" sounds Bad-ass mean it.


    2. I think trump is more focused on substance than labels. I don't care if they call it the department of hearts and flowers as long as it still has plenty of different sizes of guns. No matter what you call it, as long as it still pits more effort into the latest political fad (EEO, earth day, bring daughter to work day, red shoe day, and the bands), than they do into war focus, then they are still pointlessly crippled.

      The "defense department" in the last 20 years allowed the USA to be over run with foreigners. They didn't lift a finger to stop it. What good were they? All those guys and gals swore to support and defend the constitution, but instead only supported and defended the current president and whatever his party wanted. Fix that first. Then call it whatever you like.

      I'm not suggesting it's the perfect analysis, but the author references books, arguments, ideas that I like. It's very good in my view.

    4. Then call it whatever you like.

      Money and power is all they wish.
