You may recently have seen some in the Internet rumor mill feverishly repeating the obvious truth above, in an effort to stir up fear about recent acquisitions of ammunition by the Department of Homeland Security and a number of smaller agencies. The mildest writers have questioned why seemingly mundane agencies would need ammunition at all; more incendiary authors suggest that these government agencies are preparing for a war with the American people.

Much of the concern stems from a lack of understanding of the law enforcement functions carried about by officers in small federal agencies. These agents have the power to make arrests and execute warrants, just like their better-known counterparts at agencies like the FBI.

....Perhaps most strangely, some have cited the purchase of hollow-point ammunition as evidence of the federal government's evil motives. Hollow-points are the defensive ammunition of choice for federal, state and local law enforcement officers across the country, just as they are for private citizens. These attacks are eerily similar to statements made by gun prohibitionists, who spent the much of the '70s,'80s and '90s complaining about "dum dum" bullets.(In fact, the Violence Policy Center's website still exhibits a publication lamenting that federal ammunition law "has no effect on today's generation of high-tech hollow-point ammunition.") The attacks also ignore the fact that federal agents, unlike average taxpayers on more limited budgets, normally train and qualify with their duty ammunition.

As most gun owners will agree, skepticism of government is healthy. But today, there are more than enough actual threats to the Second Amendment to keep gun owners busy. With two key Supreme Court decisions hanging by a one-vote margin, the Justice Department deeply involved in a cover-up of a disastrous Mexican gun smuggling operation, and President Obama touting a ban on popular semi-automatic firearms, there is no need to invent additional threats to our rights.

Talking out someone else's ass doesn't help your credibility. High wages are a product of success, not a prescription for it. If your lifestyle demands a higher wage, get another job or adjust your lifestyle.

Walmart's model is just better. Let's discuss GMC.
It took a bit of head knocking to begin straightening that mess out, tossing Rick Wagoner and the directors who supported him was a long overdue enema.

GM is healthier now than it was when John DeLorean penned the most informative auto industry book ever__"On a clear day you can see GM."

The Detroit 3 are doing well presently as are all but a couple of the import companies.

An elitist in the liberal media actually came right out and said they are "more evolved" than, presumably, us ignorant peons. Heard her say it with my own ears.

So do you think liberals are "more evolved" than the rest of us and are on some self-proclaimed higher level than us traditionalists and conservatives just because we hold a different set of values?

Where does this kind of mentality eventually lead to, do you think?

QuikTrip, Trader Joe's, and Costco operate on a different model, Ton says. "They start with the mentality of seeing employees as assets to be maximized," she says. As a result, their stores boast better operational efficiency and customer service, and those result in better sales. QuikTrip sales per labor hour are two-thirds higher than the average convenience-store chain, Ton found, and sales per square foot are over 50 percent higher.

"an ideology that rejects any measure of tolerance"
so have you watched FOX lately?
Let's pretend this professor was a conservative who held a position in the Republican Party or was just anti-Muslim and asked his students to write "ALLAH" in big letters on a sheet of paper, put it on the floor, stand up and stomp on it.

Would you consider that an "academically intellectual exercise" or the reflection of an "ideology that rejects any measure of tolerance"?

I'd really like you to answer that question.
