Palin may have something on why Obama's buying up so much ammo: She was right on "death panels"
The Beaufort Observer ^ | March 5, 2013 | The Editors

Posted on 03/05/2013 6:55:23 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Once again we think, Sarah Palin has hit the nail on the head. The fact is the Federal Government has in recent months stockpiled an enormous amount of ammunition. Much more than has ever been used in the past and much more than could ever be conceivably used in ordinary circumstances. So why are they doing it?

Many people, including the Zombie Obama supporters just ignore the question. Congress ignores it and the Obama Administration refuses to explain their actions.

But it goes without saying that there is a reason. And we just think Palin has as good an explanation as anyone we've heard. She writes, on her Facebook page that she believes that the government is preparing for expected civil unrest when the economy collapses. We agree.

But we think it is even worse that the government preparing for the worst. We have a gnawing suspicion that Obama and his top minions are simply preparing to survive what they plan on causing. There are too many unexplainable actions by the Obama Administration to weaken America and destroy the essence of what has made this country great. We think Obama despises American exceptionalism and he has been determined for years to "cut America down to size."

Moreover, 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.

Your idea of taking the ammo is not whacky at all.

What else would explain the purchase orders specifying the normal hunting rounds; 3006,2506;22LR;20guage;410guage;etc,
that were in the 4 billion plus rounds that they have purchased. These are not normal military or LEO rounds that are used in everyday “training” excercises.

Dry up the supplies of components as well. When you bulk buy this ammo you cause a huge run on small/large rifle primers and small/large rifle primers as well as brass and powder stock. So you essentially kill two birds with one stone, the normal purchaser and the reloader.

I, as other like minded buds of mine, have been stocking up since ‘01 so feel rather comfortable at this stage of the game. I feel for the Patriot that is late to the party.

Well they may be expecting civil unrest, but what they will end up with is government unrest. The rogue LA police officer that recently got into a shootout with San Bernardino Sheriffs is one example. So obviously the more ammo they have, the less safe it us for everyone. What else should we expect.

The average armed agent used to qualify and practice with a few hundred rounds a year. Not every agent uses up ammo like an SEAL in the Teams.

“Enormous volumes” my *.

The House of Representatives is the governmental body which is entrusted with the power over the "pursestrings" of the Federal government. It is unbelievable and unconscionable that some Committee of this House has not frozen any further such expenditures and called for hearings and subpoenaed witnesses from DHS to explain to the country EXACTLY what they are doing and for what purpose.

Paging Speaker Boehner ... please pick up the white phone in the lobby. 'We The People' are on the phone.

I'm not sure what's more alarming:

-The paramilitary uniforms

-otherwise normal-looking youth participating in this farce

-otherwise normal-looking youth being subjected to 13, 17 or more years of lefty indoctrination and believing this is a productive use of thought or action

Interview any one of them and the words New Orleans, Bush and/or Katrina are bound to be uttered, so solid is their programming.

Only somewhat...

Keep in mind that the American Revolution was only popular and supported by 1/3 of the population. 1/3 were pro British, and 1/3 were neutral.....

Obama’s counter American Revolution will fail, primarily because of people like you, me, and the others on this website. We’re the 1/3 that count.

It’s obvious huh!

Difference is between your saying it and her saying it to the un-observant masses......

I’ll go with her as the better bullhorn.....

Sorry gunner, but you’re out of the job! (the one you never had, except on your FR soapbox)

I think the explanation is very simple: 0bama is planning to do a lot more skeet shooting in the next few years - he’s decided he’s no good at golf.

You miss the obvious question.

If she makes the point it is seen as brilliant.
If you make the same point previously... not so much.

As regards “brilliance”... why is there a difference?

The final and ultimate irony is that Americans voted for it...

Bullsh*t. IMAGINARY "Americans" voted for it, the same as who voted for guys like Al Franken and Harry Reid.

Democrats gin votes, manufacture votes, harvest votes, manipulate votes, get votes from dead people, and spin votes out of thin air. Somebody here googled "how many times did you vote today" on the last presidential election, and the results were naseauating, of Democrats bragging how many times they voted. In their minds, honor and morality are relative, so they rationalize that cheating is okay. And we come to this: what happens when a minority attempts to overtake a majority.

Obama, however, loves that so many of those of us on the right are so quick to believe the worst of our fellow Americans.

The difference is she has a bigger/louder bullhorn than you, I, or anyone else...and....she’s not afraid to use it!

It’s not a matter of “brillance”....it’s getting the message across.....Palin speaks and everyone listens.....even you!

So you admit that what she’s said isn’t brilliant or even original.

So why fawn over her for it?

On the contrary, basil, think of all the free ammo we can take off the dead bodies of those who would attack us!

I never characterized Palin’s statement as brillant. You seem to be the one that is using the word thereby setting yourself up so’s ya can knock it down and point fingers at others.......You’re my Hero...gush!

But really... who’s fawning? The truth is the truth, no matter who says it. You have a problem with that? Or are you just content to throw up straw men for the rest of your life and create disention where none exists???

FRs Contrarian in Chief and President of the PDS Society..LOLOLOLOL

Life would be dull without ya! lololol
