This may be something no more sinister than good old fashioned crony capitalism. DHS is not the Army and if they attempted to occupy someplace, Houston, for example, can you imagine what would happen to them? Dont assume bad intentions when simple payola may be the answer.
Baloney....they aren’t stupid....they know whats coming, because they know what their plans are....the Tea Party revolution scared the scat out of them....now they know at least 25% of us won’t roll over and play dead....
You’re just kidding yourself.
Ah, the old "It can't happen here" canard. That kind of thinking guarantees that it will happen here. Anyone with a lick of common sense knows why the DHS is buying all those tanks and it has nothing to do with money. You think these people care about money? They already have all the money.
Any one that attacks one of those tanks will be declared a terrorist, hunted down by the NSA/FBI/CIA and killed with a drone or "disappeared" under the NDAA.
"War On Americans.
As one report began, this is getting a little creepy with the word that Homeland Security has put out an order for 2,700 light-armored tanks...just the thing to go with 1.6 billion rounds of hollow point, don'tcha think? And you thought the Bushitas we grounds for conspiracy thoughts?
As I've said before, there is a building case here that there is some 'hidden force" running the agenda of the US government over the past 20-years, or so, and it's like there's no functional difference between presidents...
And whoever it is, they clearly have a vision of having to maintain social order when the financial system blows up - which sure seems to be what they're planning for. 2,700 APC's can't be wronge, can they? And for local police? WTF?"
AND, they're trying desperately to disarm us. Why? Cars kill more people than guns.
Yep. The late John Murtha used stuff like this constantly to prop-up his incredibly corrupt three-decade career in the US House.
