I think someone posted, and it’s as likely as any other reason,

that they need to be heavily armed to seize control of the food supply after the economic collapse.

There has been an uptick in gang violence between the holsteins and the jerseys.

Well, it IS coming to a head, especially after Bunkerville.

That was pretty much the “no shots fired heard round the world”.

The USDA is the agency that funds food stamps and Food Stamp programs are a huge fraction of their budget.

They also investigate Food Stamp (SNAP) fraud, so an argument could be made that they need to arm themselves with weapons a lot heavier than a sub gun given their AO is often in such garden spots as Chicago’s South Side and the worst parts of places like Oakland , East LA , Detroit ect.

No. If they need law enforcement, they need to take the local cops with them. Nowhere in Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution, do the States give Congress the authority to have police powers at the federal level.

Funny - the post-WWII generation delivered milk, cheese, butter, and eggs right to the door.

The current generation feels theatened by milk, cheese, butter, and eggs, feeling, evidently, that these substances need to be supervised with SMGs.

Perhaps the strict vegetarians feel a sense of impending doom over the possibility that the eggs might attampt some form of retribution over the rejection.

Sign of the times.

The excuse trundled-out is, “cartels are performing grow operations in national forests”

1. The feds INVITE in millions of illegals

2. Illegals set up US divisions of cartels

3. Emergency begins

4. Gummint arms up

5. Gummint attacks Joe Six-Pack

Maybe it is not so sinister after all. I wonder if it is preparation for hyperinflation and the government's subsequent refusal to raise the food stamp benefit. Hyperinflation is a surefire way to get a government out from under the burden of crushing entitlement costs.

On a side note, the Democrats and Republicans are colluding to lie about inflation so that automatic benefit increases pegged to inflation do not kick in.

Um, isn't there a reason we have, a, you know, Congress.

It is so frustrating that we supposedly have Republicans controlling the House and apparently these things are of no concern to them. It is no concern that domestic federal agencies are stockpiling ammunition and armament and no one thinks to ask why. The House doesn't cut agency budgets or provide directives, this just keeps on happening.

The only logical conclusion of this fact is, they WILL shoot to kill us and the “us” are the conservatives who insist on liberty and stand up to them.

“There has been an uptick in gang violence between the holsteins and the jerseys.”

That’s why the price of milk keeps going up - the cows are so upset over this war, they aren’t producing enough milk. The Holsteins and Jerseys need a peace agreement. Send Jimmahhh Carter, he’ll do it.

Your problem is - you think rationally - you have to stop that or you will never “fit in” and I know that is important to you. :o)

The preferred politically feasible solution to winding down the entitlement state is to stop indexing benefits to inflation and letting inflation erode the purchasing power of existing benefits and slowly driving recipients back into working for a living.

The Republican vision of what that job force would look like is the traditional American norm.

The Democrat vision is more like the jobs market in East Germany when it was part of the USSR in the 1970s

I recall a buy of 2 billion rounds of .40 S&W JHP. Perhaps they realized that a submachinegun would more effectively deliver that inventory to the domestic targets (since JHP is forbidden for use in military conflicts).

Just remember, you can always take the weapons and ammo off of the dead members of barry’s civilian army that he is supplying. You don’t need to stock up your own. They’re doing it for you.

“The excuse trundled-out is, “cartels are performing grow operations in national forests””

They never seemed to have a problem with foreign criminals growing pot on `federal land’ before.
I suspect the real problem is American natives running them off `their land’.
Their hired hands had started killing stock, then had to be escorted off by local LEOs.
And they even had to bury the evidence before leaving so people didn’t start shooting at them.
How embarrassing that must have been for these federal Alpha-male gear queer mercenaries.

That's the point! The federal government can raise armies to DESTROY America's enemies. Police forces are local agencies designed to keep the peace and PROTECT citizens.

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?... The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin's thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If...if...We didn't love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation.... We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”
