The Federal Department Of Peace and Nonviolence

Dennis Kucinich's silly proposal now finds a new champion in Mark Dayton of Ohio.

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In what peace activists call a milestone, Sen. Mark Dayton, D-Minn., introduced legislation Thursday supporting a long-shot citizen lobbying effort to create a U.S. Department of Peace and Nonviolence.

He is the first and, so far, only member of the U.S. Senate to publicly endorse the plan.

A remnant of the quixotic 2004 presidential candidacy of Rep. Dennis Kucinich, D-Ohio, the idea of a "Peace Department" has been derided by critics as utopian and naïve, while supporters say it is an idea whose time has come.

Almost half of Minnesota's congressional delegation -- all the Democrats but one -- have lined up in support of the campaign, which calls for a cabinet-level secretary to develop an array of policies from international conflict-resolution to reducing domestic abuse and violence against animals. [!!!!]

...

"It sends the right message," said Rep. Betty McCollum, D-Minn. "It's about promoting justice, expanding human rights and preventing conflict."

It seems to be a grab-bag for every silly-shit bullet point on the left-liberal agenda.

Look, idiots, we already have TWO Departments of Peace. The State Department for Talking Peace, and the Department of Defense for Making Peace when the State Department fails.
