I bet you thought I was never going to show up again, didn't you? Bwa-ha-ha. It was just a vacation. You're still stuck with me, America.
You're also stuck with Congress, which you may like only slightly less than me, and this week, Congress is readying for it's biggest battle yet, over funding for the Department of Homeland Security in return for Barack Obama forgetting all about that little Executive Amnesty order that has since been stayed by a Texas Federal court. While the Republicans and Democrats fight over whether DHS is using their money wisely, and whether important programs will suffer as a result of a temporary funding halt, the Department of Homeland Security, it seems, is less than concerned. After all, it's not immigration enforcement of the Transportation Safety Administration they're worried about losing the cash for.
