    However the government is not buying every man woman and child one and a half drinks. Read on, read oners.

    http://rt.com/usa/news/dhs-million-point-government-179/

    Here is some food for thought:

    It's fine: For ballistic purposes, law enforcement train with the same ammo they shoot.
    They're gonna kill us: Many state and local police forces disallow the use of hollowpoint rounds due to the lethality

    It's fine: Just a normal government contract to an arms provider
    They're gonna fucking kill us: That was passed after the normal one and right after the budget was passed (with no room for it in the budget)

    It's fine: They need a ton of bullets for training because cops are dumb
    Time to beat those tinfoil hats into bullets: Nobody no matter how stupid needs that many bullets for training

    It's fine: They're trained law-enforcement officials
    Start hoarding liquor and cigarettes: They're from the Social Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security serve the President, not any duly elected local bodies. So they're incompetent and inanswerable to anybody.

    I believe my personal opinion may have bled out a little, but eh.

    Here's an article written by a former US General and Security Adviser. He says it's much less bullets, but it's even more dangerous as he traces it back to the Social Security Administration rather than the DHS.

    Except from SSA's response, "SOCIAL SECURITY'S OIG RESPONDS TO CONCERNS OVER AMMUNITION PROCUREMENT"

    Full text here: http://oig.ssa.gov/newsroom/blog/20...responds-concerns-over-ammunition-procurement

    It took me two whole minutes to find the SSA's cogent and reasonable response to this non-story. If you are still convinced this is a conspiracy, then you deserve to live in fear.

    Here is three reasons why this shit isn't bullshit:

    1) When the world economy collapses when Fukushima's Reactor 4 falls over spreading radioactive particles all over. Panic ensues, martial law happens.

    2) The Dollar collapses. Panic ensures, martial law happens.

    3) And the unstoppable: environmental fascism and the rise of the Technocracy. Our world's environment is beyond the point of no return, if we want things to stop getting worse, we literally have to stop the shit we are doing now and reform the whole world's policy regarding pollution.

    Since this won't happen, climate change will be put off till it is too late and the only thing that can stop it or adapt to it is a radical environmental fascist state led by science dictators (the Technocrats). When they take over, there will be further purges, using these bullets to crush anyone who resists what is necessary for the survival of the human race. This is the fate for those who aren't purged through "natural processes" (like how climate change will reduce the global population by at least 1 billion in the next thirty years).

    1. Dr Rice already posted this bullshit. @Beefcake @oddguy its a duplicate story, please delete it.
    2. I don't want the cops using NON hollowpoint bullets because of the penetration issues. All things considered, its probably the best round for cop usage. When a cop is shooting at someone, it should be because they are trying to kill them, not disable them, that's what tasers are for. Some people may forbid it based on a wierd interpretation of the Hague convention which does not allow HP rounds in warfare.
    3. The price of ammo goes through the goddamn roof around election time, and hit record highs after obama's 2008 election; his 2012 election is probably going to send them even higher, so its probably best to buy now.

    4. Shut the fuck up you goddamn idiot piece of shit paranoiac. I could explain to you the routing of these agencies, and exactly who would get them and why (for example, did you know the IRS has a small cadre of armed agents for mob and gang related tax scam investigations?), but you're too much of a paranoid little middle class white kid to listen.

    Yeah cool story bro, but still enough agents within the government are going to be using those bullets whenever mass civil unrests happens (cause it will).

    There are 270,000,000 guns in civilian hands already. I'm not worried. Yawn, your babytroll faux-conspiritard attitude aside, I'm getting real tired of this middle class white paranoiac shit.

    Good thing hollow points absolutely suck vs body armor, or any cover, for that matter. Now, against an unarmored, soft fleshy target...God, it's heinous.

    Let's hope there is nothing nefarious about this ammunition acquisition..

    Not necessarily.

    Well, there was that ONE time when our paychecks were fucked over by Congress, due to 'lol, no funding'. Miraculously, however, Congress, The House, The Supreme Court and the Executive branches remained untouched, and they got a raise in the bargain.

    Be more specific, then, my Aussie friend.

    In that case, yes. Let's see: The PATRIOT act was definitely detrimental to American society, as well as the abject waste of taxpayer dollars called the TSA. And, let's not forget Eric Holder and the "Operation Fast and Furious" fiasco.

    Hell, the incredibly Un-Constitutional usage of public funds to 'bailout' banks and GM...all the while the Banks are still depriving Americans of much-needed loans, and are quick to repossess homes and vehicles.

    I can go on all day on why my government needs a much-needed re-tooling.

    Tell me, are those who join the military taught to view the American public as separate from those who join the military? I've certainly noticed something like that working both ways in American society.

    Not at all. Well, at least not to Navy/Marine Corps personnel. I can't speak for the Air Force/Army/Coast Guard. I think General George Washington said it best: "When we put on the mantle of the soldier, we did not set aside the mantle of the citizen."

    I afford my fellow Americans, and fellow human beings, respect and dignity until made otherwise.

    Yeah, graduated college and my free time decreased dramatically working shit jobs to pay back the college bills that I realize now are not quite worth the 15k pricetag I have left despite working throughout college to pay it back.

    I hope to be making more routine posts now that work is slowing down.
