Nothing left to cut...

There are currently 440 active Federal agencies. After scrolling through the list, Many are racist, sexist, redundant, or simply stupid.

Just a few of many I'd remove, not for political reasons, just because they are pointless.
In no particular order:


Commission on the Social Security Notch Issue - I have no idea what this means. The .gov page calls it "the so called Notch issue", so the Commission doesn't know what it is either.
Geographic Names Board - Created to standardize geographic names usage within the Fed gov.
Indian Arts and Crafts Board - Created to expand Indian arts and crafts market. I'd say all the casinos have taken care of that "problem"
National Commission on Manufactured Housing - Intent on keeping trailer trash safe from tornadoes.
Women's Progress Commemoration Commissionidentified sites of historical significance to the women's movement; and recommended actions, under the National Preservation Act and other law - Notice the past tense, identified? I believe the Commission is finished, but not terminated.

When our governing officials dismiss due process as mere semantics, when they exercise powers they don’t have and ignore duties they actually bear, and when we let them get away with it, we have ceased to be our own rulers.

    Damn near anything with "Bureau" or "Commission" in the name.

    If you could only choose one which would you cut?

    I think about worst waste of tax payers money and probably the most over reaching ... surprisingly the EPA.

    Homeland Security is biggest violator of the Bill of Rights. $41B annual budget and 240,000 employees. First to go.

    If you cut Homeland Security and send the US Customs and Border Protection, US Immigrantion, US Coast Guard and US Secret Service along with maybe a couple other parts would go back under their old agencies (which they'd love you for) then cut what is left ... basically leaving TSA, FEMA and assorted nuts those funds would go a long way to strengthen other needed areas ... immigration and the Border Patrol could actually get much need equipment!
