    Didn't see DOE (energy/nuclear) there.. (my eyes crossed though). They have an armed force though properly, they might be contractors.

    yea i marked the ones that make sense right off in red but a couple i dont know anything about. to me it still looks like a cherry picked number by throwing in the military and the various divisions within but who am i to judge.

    "Other Major Federal Law Enforcement Agencies" this one is a cop out though.

    Rank them according to small countries they could overthrow. Which departments besides the DOD could take Syria?

    You don't think these are the only armed departments the feds have do you? What else are black budgets for?

    I think a battalion of Jewish mothers with shopping carts could take out Canada.

    i have no doubt they have relatively small forces we dont know about, i may agree and disagree on some reasons why we would but im sure they are there.

    ive heard of this but ive never seen anything with substance on it.

    Actually, I think some Canadians are fairly well armed... but Seriously, the Department of Education, it seems a lot of these could work with rentacops
    Treasury Inspectors, IRS????, Health & Human Services???

    There are only a very small % there that are hardcore trained. Most would be like like the 3 stooges in a combat role.

    Our public servants slipped the leash years ago. This is more proof (as if any more was needed) of an increasingly dangerous government.

    Yeah, one of my points. and so the half arsed trained SWAT wannabes shoots some woman and her kids because they didn't: "GET ON THE FLOOR, NOW! GET ON THE FLOOR, NOW!!!" Pew, Pew, pew, pew, pew, yes, he was using a Glock. I just have really difficult time with Health and Human Services needing armed agents? You need armed agents then grab the FBI, or BATFE if you think that welfare mom is heavily armed and sitting on a powder keg of pablum.
