I just can’t understand that anyone can be surprised by this. HE told the American People very, very, LOUDLY that’s what he wanted to do, hello???

Why? To trigger a revolt.

It is important to obama’s long term plan for ummah that the US be taken out of play on the world stage.

Iran or N. Korea; notice I said a “Stuxnet type” virus meaning I’d have to believe Iranian or N. Korean programmers can reverse engineer that type bug and send it back our way.

Yes, you were clear.

Let me be clear; do not assume it is only foreign enemies who want to destroy America.

It was Buffalo Springfield back then; it goes back to LBJ I think.

Still, I think Crosby and Young were actively badmouthing GWB, but are silent during the even worse reign of Obama.

Counter-measures for the Dept of Homely Insecurity's new light armored tanks can be found here in the comment section:

Knucklebuster | February 22, 2013 at 19:22 | 1:48. Note the can by the wheel with the steel rod coming out of it. Anything from a 9mm to a .50 through that can will lock that wheel up, creating a 15 ton boat anchor with the unique ability to go in tight circles.

Thanks, Ron, but I knew that. My point is that the DHS is composed of several specific services like the Coast Guard, TSA, US Secret Service, etc. A total of 240,000 people work in these areas. If you enlist in the military, you don’t just join the Department of Defense. You join the Army, Navy, Marines, or Air Force. So who do these pseudo military types riding around in the scary black trucks actually work for? TSA? ICE? BSA (Barry’s Secret Army)?
Here is the DHS organizational chart: http://www.dhs.gov/xlibrary/assets/dhs-orgchart.pdf
What is your guess?

My Boy Scout troop in the early 70’s was quite a bit meaner looking than that crew.

Yeah, right. Shall I assume your 'boy scout' troop was armed - and had enough bullets to kill every citizen 5 times over?

My "spokesperson" at Sen. Tom Coburn's office told me today...it's 3 years.

Was he wrong?

A D8 would make believes out of those inside.

And I'd bet we can come up with a lot of D8s.

Take a look at that photo. Those are play guns. Notice the orange marking on the ends? And yes, my Boy Scout troop was armed when we went to the rifle range, something I presume they don’t do anymore.

And I never called them tanks, did I? Just as I don’t call APCs and IFVs tanks. But journalists, by and large, couldn’t tell a Zero from an F-15, or a Bradley from a PT-76, as I’m sure you know.

So if something is labeled “homeland security” it’d be impossible for National Guardsman to get in and drive? LOL
Oh, btw, if these were National Guard vehicles, they’d be labeled “US Army” not National Guard. Just as Air National Guard aircraft are labeled “US Air Force” not Air National Guard, except for the squadron name on the tail fin.

The people of the United States have in their possession, right this minute, more ammunition than was used in World War I and II, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm, Iraq and Afghanistan, combined, by both sides. Just the deer hunters in this country would be the largest infantry force ever seen on Earth in the entire history of mankind. Most of those hunters own several high-powered & scoped rifles, camouflage clothing, camping supplies, vehicles capable of going off-road and many have also night vision devices. I almost feel sorry for the Left. They have no idea the fire they are playing with.

Rank and file leftists are in charge of nothing. They’re oligarch-enabling stooges, too stupid to be prepared for the hell they’ve unleashed or even see that it’s coming.

When the economy implodes and the civil society collapses, leftists will be the first to start burning down the joint.

I don’t know. All I know is from what I read, the big contracts (the 450M and 750M ones) were supposed to be over five years. Maybe Coburn’s staffer was thinking of another contract.

Yes, those conservatives who decided to impale themselves on principle can also take some of the credit.

And we thought the 60’s and 70’s were scairy...Ha.
These 60’s ‘rebels’ are more totalitarian than aynone could have imagined...so much for freedom. ha.

Back then, there were plenty of violent and thugish “peace people”..Black panthers, bill ayers...Now they have the power of govt.But they were always elitists who made everyone think it was about peace and love. Yeah, right.
The thugs always co-opt the “revolution”.
