I'm Confused!

The U.S. Government, over the past year or so, has seen fit to purchase 1.4 billion rounds of ammunition.  And surprisingly none of it was for the military.

The Department of Homeland Security has purchased the majority of it.  I know what you are thinking … target practice, right?  Well, an awful lot of the ammo they bought is hollow point cartridges which are not used for target practice.  They are used, almost exclusively, to kill humans. Oh, did I mention that none of this ammo is going overseas?  It’s all staying right here in the good old USA.  Are we expecting an invasion by a huge military force?  If not, then who do they expect to be shooting at? Perspective: 1.4 billion rounds is enough to shoot every man, woman, and child living in this country at least four times.

Here is an oddity.  The Social Security Administration has purchased 174,000 rounds of 40 caliber hollow point cartridges.  What? Is this some kind of a new plan to reduce the number of claimants?  I know they have told us they can’t continue to fund those crazy “entitlement” programs (wait, Social Security retirement and Medicare programs were supposed to be funded by payroll deductions and matching employer payments.  Where did all “that” money go?)

Now let’s move to the "Twilight Zone”!  The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration purchased 46,000 rounds of 40 caliber hollow point cartridges too.  That’s the national weather service … for crying out loud!  What do they need 40 caliber ammunition for … cloud seeding … reducing the number of pesky sharks at the beach that are frightening people?  Wait … I know … maybe they think a few warning shots will keep tornadoes out of America’s trailer parks.

Do you suppose it’s because they love us and want to buy up all the ammunition before we do … so they can beat it all into plowshares and move the entire population back to subsistence farming?

A Final Thought:  Does anyone think any of this is even a little bit odd?  Is anyone troubled by the thought that none of this ammo is going overseas (where all the people live we have been told we should be afraid of)?

How come the suits in Washington frighten me more than … … … oh never mind!
