Perhaps you can debunk the transcripts of Janet Napolitano's testimony to Congress when she was forced to admit the first procurement in 2009 was for 750 million rounds of ammunition. I do believe you even pointed out that the procurement wasn't really for 750 million rounds because a previous procurement for 200 million rounds was included in the 750 million round procurement. So, were you lying when you admitted to the first procurement of 750 million rounds? Or, are you lying now when you deny the fact that Obama's government is stockpiliing enough weaponry and munitions to fight a large scale war with the American people?
So, what you're saying is, Janet Napolitano lied to Congress when she confessed to a massive arms buy for the DHS, right?
You're an idiot.
Oh, yeah, you never answered this question, either.
Did Obama lie when he said he was born in Kenya? Or, did Obama lie in 2007 when he began claiming to have been born in Hawaii?
Ill bet you havent came across one bit of Anti-Obama sewage from the dingbat bloggers of the Right Wing Inter-Nut that you havent taken to heart is there Denial-Boy?LMAO!

300,000 rounds of ammunition for the US Forest Service. What could the US Forest Service possibly do with 300,000 rounds of ammunition?

In a post published on the Fbo.gov website, the US Forest Service and secured a bid for over 300,000 rounds of ammunition including:

(1) 40 caliber, 180 grain, 120,000 rounds or equivalent,
(2) 9 mm, 124 grain, 50,000 rounds or equivalent,
(3).38 caliber, 135 grain, 10,000 rounds or equivalent,
(4).380 caliber, 90 grain, 6,000 rounds or equivalent,
(5).223 caliber, 64 grain, 87,500 rounds or equivalent,
(6) 12 gauge 00 buck, 15,000 rounds or equivalent,
(7) 40 caliber frangible, 10,000 rounds or equivalent,
(8) 9 caliber frangible, 10,000 rounds or equivalent,
(9).223 caliber frangible, 10,000 rounds or equivalent,
(10) 12 gauge 1 oz slug, 7,500 rounds or equivalent
The cartridges shall be delivered to Albuquerque, NM.

This is just a partion of the mountain of munitions the Obama government is stockpiling in the domestic agencies preparing for a war with the American people.

These procurements are public information, by law. Just try to find any evidence of them today. The internet is being scrubbed of any evidence of the Obama government domestic arms buildup.

Ms. Napolitano said her department has purchased about 150 million rounds of ammunition a year since 2009, with about 70 million of those going to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the agency that includes the U.S. Border Patrol.

Recent reports have said the department plans to buy billions of rounds of ammunition, which would amount to more than tens of thousands of rounds for every law enforcement officer in the department.

But Ms. Napolitano the numbers have been exaggerated. She said the contracts that have been reported represent an option to buy up to a certain limit over five years, and are not a one-time mass purchase.

She said buying that way allows the department to save as much as 80 percent on the cost of each round.

She also said itís not surprising the number of rounds per law enforcement agent in her department may be high because some of them have to re-qualify with their weapons several times a year.

In a letter to Sen. Tom Coburn, Oklahoma Republican, earlier this year, the department laid out its purchase and use histories.

DHS officials said in fiscal year 2012 the agency purchased 103 million rounds and used 88 million rounds for training, and 28 million rounds during actual operations.

Customs and Border Protection accounted for about half of that operational use.

MYTH: DHS purchased 750 million rounds of several different types of ammunition in August 2012.

FACT: The DHS contract never stated 750 million rounds at any time. It is a five year contract with a maximum purchase of 70 million rounds over the life of the contract. Military Times recently addressed this issue as well.

Sure Carol, keep repeating that "job creators" myth. Let's take the Bush tax cuts and all the jobs and prosperity they were supposed to create.
We were promised that cutting taxes on the wealthy would result in much higher economic growth and broadly shared prosperity. For those who wondered how we would pay for such a large cut to the governmentís revenue stream, the Republican prospectus had a remarkable claim.
The tax cuts wouldnít cost us anything. Growth would be so strong that the tax cuts would more than pay for themselves. Even those who admitted that the tax cuts might not be fully self-financing still made strong claims about faster economic growth offsetting much of the lost revenue from the tax cuts.
The reality, of course, has been quite different. There is little evidence that the Bush tax cuts, or any other tax cuts directed at the so-called job creators, have had a noticeable effect on economic growth. And the promise of broadly shared prosperity has not been realized.
Most of the gains from economic growth in recent decades have gone to the top of the income distribution while the inflation adjusted wages of the working class have been relatively flat. Furthermore, the tax cuts have not paid for themselves as promised, and it hasnít even been close. The Bush tax cuts have already cost us trillions in revenue, and if they were extended for high income tax payers, they will cost us roughly another trillion over the next decade.
The payoffs from tax cuts that were promised during the Bush years have not been realized, and the failed promises about growth and revenue have damaged the health, education, and retirement programs the working class depends upon in our increasingly globalized economy.
And Carol, weren't you the one who was complaining that people could leave a dead end job and not lose health coverage and further their education, seek a better job or start a business? You're a hypocrite!
But go ahead Carol; keep shilling for those would couldn't be bothered to piss on you if you were on fire.
Crap,the divergence between the rise of Corporate Profits the fall of income for the Middle Class since Reagan's failed policies is as wide as the space between a Tea Bagger's ears.
People like Lois and DB like to think that by parroting the Party Line of the Plutocrats that they are establishing something in common to identify themselves with these 'winners'.
Pathetic.
Thye are just the Bootlickers and Pilot Fish and the Spineless Thralls that always try to hover around the Wealthy.

The procurement specifically Napolitano was being questioned was 450 million rounds, moron.

I noticed you couldn't find any of the procurements that are supposed to be public informaiton to support your claim, dupe.
So, if nothing is happening, why is the internet being scrubbed of information about the massive arms buildup in Obama's domestic agencies?

Come to think of it, on the White House website they even doctored the transcript of when Obama actually told everyone he was going to start a massive arms buildup in the domestic federal agencies.
Exact Obama words:
"We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."

Why do we need two military machines capable of fighting a world war, one for a world war and another to "pollice" the population?
Why do the Democrats expect such a large war here in the United States? Who's the enemy the Democrats are expecting to have to slaughter?

PHOENIX (AP)ó A man shot inside a Walmart store during a fight died, police in the Phoenix suburb of Chandler said Sunday night.

Detectives reviewing surveillance video report that two people got into a fight in the store, which ended in a shooting around 4 p.m. Sunday, Chandler police spokesman Joseph Favazzo said in a news release.

Favazzo told The Associated Press that the shooter remained at the store for a little while and then fled. He didn't make any other threats, the spokesman said.

Soon afterward, a family member called authorities to report his whereabouts. Police picked him up at the home and were questioning him. The man wasn't under arrest as of Sunday night and was cooperating with authorities, Favazzo said.

The victim had been taken to a local hospital in critical condition, but later died. His name hasn't been released.

Look, believe me or not the U.S. federal government does not have the skills to execute a "war" with the American people. They have SURELY just demonstrated this fact in spades. Likewise the American people haven't the mental resources to hold up their end of the conflict if there was one,(see: the sun revolves around the earth.) Or are you trying to say that you're bored and are HOPING for something like a war so your life could have meaning and purpose? On the other hand I suppose it would be an opportunity for us to invade someone relatively economically and where the possibility of us actually "winning" exists?

I don't know why the Forest Service needs 300,000 rounds of ammunition but it is likely because some low-level bureaucrat's brother-in-law owns a cartridge factory, or, at least works there? Or it could be because that same person heard the rumor on the internet that you had to shoot the trees first before you cut them down?

They also pretend to be ignorant of Obama standing right next to Christopher Dodd in the photo op for Dodd's threat to filibuster the re-instatement of the Glass Steagall Act in 2006.
About a week after Obama took office in January, 2009, Obama made the public statement what was needed to fix the banking system was the re-instatement of that very same Glass Steagall Act he threatened to filibuster.
For anyone paying attention, this was direct evidence Obama doesn't have a clue what happens in government, nor does he have a clue what he does in government, and in his very first week as president. The evidence Obama doesn't have a clue what happens in government has mounted daily since that first display of the fact that we have an ignorant buffoon sitting in the Oval Office.
"Everyday it looks like Obama got off a tour bus at the White House and found out he's the president." Charles Krauthammer
