Exactly what I’ve thought for a long time.
But the bad times are gone and the market is in a new bull rally.
I heard it on ABC news today.. /s
Who is he going to recruit for his SS.
Mrs. Palin it is not suggested to rest on the sidelines for too long.
There is a serious struggle brewing.
You have been in and out of the fight, but things keep getting worse.
I thank you for your observations, and support you 100%, but please do not back down.
You are a rare individual who will need to start speaking up about these sorts of things.
Saul Alynsky taught that the citizens of USA probably won’t let go of the old system until they are in such despair that they have no choice but to grab for the new system. The old system has been the exceptionally successful free market system and the new systemm is the not so new, and always failed system of Marxism. When the people are in dispair, they might lash out at those who planned and caused it. Thus ammo, UAV’s and MRAP’s for the Marxists.
So they need over a billion rounds of ammo for “practice”...??
They could practice a million rounds a day for a thousand days... anyone see them practicing that much?
And when you practice, you use cheap wad-cutters - not expensive hollow points.
...we think there are millions of people in this country who have no clue about what Obama is doing to America. They are too self-absorbed to care. But Obama knows that when the house of cards collapses they will react and it will not likely be to congratulate him. So he needs protection. That is why he has ordered the stockpiling of so much ammunition.
Who's he going to get to fire all those rounds?
I think it is worse than that. I went into my local gun store this week for some speed loaders and noticed a sign on the ammo shelves stating that all 22 cal ammo was only available with the purchase of a 22 cal weapon only and that the limit of only two boxes.
What that tells me is that the government is doing the Cloward/Piven strategy to ammo availability in buying up as much as the manufacturers are willing to sell them in bulk for the “big order” to limit what the Serfs can obtain to hedge against the checking of a tyrannical government.
Well said. With our deficit, why buy so many expensive rounds?
1. When the economy collapses.
2. When the gun confiscation starts.
3. When Obamacare gets rolling and people start dying from the rationing and wake up to what we have there.
It could be any of these three or all.
One thing is for damned sure It is for use against Americans, and not for target practice.
Wrong. Hollow points are used for practice and training is continuous in which enormous volumes of rounds are used. You are wrong.
Went to my local gun shop and the cupboards were bare. Lots of gaps in the display cases, no .22 to be found, and the prices of what ammo was there was quite high. Ammo = gold now...
We think Obama despises American exceptionalism and he has been determined for years to “cut America down to size.”
Hits the nail right on the head.
Once the SHTF, he plans to declare martial law; establish himself as President for Life; then order America’s Gestapo, the DHS, to begin confiscating arms and rounding up Americans for the gulag.
Or simple execution.
And he knows that Americans, by and large, are too absorbed with their bread and circuses to care.
He knows, too, that America’s Ministry of Propaganda, otherwise known as the news media, will fall right into line and defend the whole thing on some specious pretext or other.
The final and ultimate irony is that Americans voted for it, and he’s not even a naturalized citizen and was never eligible to be president.
Maybe nobama’s homeland army needs all that ammo because they miss a lot of the time?
I have my own theory about the gummit buying all this ammo. It may be a wacky theory, but nonetheless, it’s what I have concluded.
“They” are having a hell of a time trying to take our guns. What’s the next best thing? Take our ammo........
I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided; and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years, to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves, and the House? Is it that insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received? Trust it not, sir; it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss. Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with these war-like preparations which cover our waters and darken our land. Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation? Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled, that force must be called in to win back our love? Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation; the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask, gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign any other possible motive for it? Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us; they can be meant for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which the British ministry have been so long forging.(more)
We live in interesting and dangerous times.
Please read this: at least the bold
"As members of this administration have previously indicated, the US government has not carried out drone strikes in the United States and has no intention of doing so. As a policy matter moreover, we reject the use of military force where well-established law enforcement authorities in this country provide the best means for incapacitating a terrorist threat."
However, Holder went on to note that under certain circumstances, the president reserves the right to target U.S. citizens for due process-free killings:
"It is possible, I suppose, to imagine an extraordinary circumstance in which it would be necessary and appropriate under the Constitution and applicable laws of the United States for the President to authorize the military to use lethal force within the territory of the United States. For example, the president could conceivably have no choice but to authorize the military to use such force if necessary to protect the homeland in the circumstances like a catastrophic attack like the ones suffered on December 7, 1941, and September 11, 2001."
Before the era of predator drones, such a statement might be considered unremarkable in that most Americans would accept some "extraordinary" action in a classic "ticking time-bomb" scenario. However, Obama's clear willingness to employ drone strikes to kill individuals who aren't necessarily involved in plotting attacks at the time they become targets should give all Americans pause.
I don't know what to say.
