Please - don't let them know - when Obama was elected I bought stock in gun and ammo manufacturers.
I figured the "Gun Stealin" campaign launched by the manufacturers prostitute group, the NRA, would cause gun and ammo prices to explode, and along with it profits.
Thanks NRA - as a lifetime member your total absence of ethics is a consistency I can count on.
Now what about the UN stockpiling weapons and ammo to invade America.
- THAT'S SCARY -
THE UN IS STOCKPILIN ASSAULT RIFLES AND ANMO - IT'LL ALL BE GONE SOON AND THEN HOW ARE WE GONNA PROTECT OUR FAMILIES FROM THEM SOCIALIST TOLUVIAN SHOCK TROOPS !

"Camelot Is Burning."

"It began in earnest last Friday. A flash mob of latte drinking, tofu eating media that has done its best to quell, rather than fan the flames of truth, turned on one of their own. Jay Carney lay bludgeoned at the base of the podium, a victim of friendly fire.

Ironically, the attack was reminiscent of the one in Benghazi he has repeatedly denied the Administration he represents bears any responsibility for.“Changed twelve times?!” came the cries. And with good reason. We were misled; no, lied to.

Meanwhile, a few blocks away at an American Bar Association conference, IRS big wig Lois Lerner dropped perhaps the biggest bombshell in recent political history, that the IRS had been targeting conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status, while responding to a question secretly planted in the audience in advance. My guess is the crowd initially gave a standing ovation, given their blatant left wing agenda, but we’ll never know, as it was a “closed door” session.

Then came the apology from Ms. Lerner:“Sorry ‘bout that folks. Thanks for the questions. There’s coffee and Good Humor Ice Cream in the lobby.” But it didn’t take long for the elated crowd to understand that this might not be good for their guy.

Then the Office of the Inspector General report hit the wires.

Uh oh.

By Saturday morning, there was smoke emanating from the West Wing of the White House, the source reportedly an overheated transformer. But where there’s smoke there’s fire. By Monday afternoon, after news broke of the AP phone records seized by the Department of Justice, it was confirmed: Camelot is burning."

A little info on Obamacare fees:::
"Income: One of the top factors determining how much you'll pay next year is your income. That's because subsidies are available to those with incomes of up to 400% of the poverty line -- roughly $45,000 for an individual or $92,000 for a family of four. Some 57% of enrollees will receive subsidies, and those subsidies will cover nearly two-thirds of the premium, on average, according to the Congressional Budget Office's estimates.."
Question, So who pays the subsidies?????
Where does the subsidy money come from??
Is this money part of the fed reserve printing up over $85 billion a month?????? Again adding to the debt ten-fold??????
Come on Libbers, everyone wants to know the answers to these types of questions.
The libs have the Nancy Pelosi disease. Even though it passed, they STILL don't know what's in it.

"President Barack Obama had to console an elementary school student in Baltimore on Friday after the student failed to come up with the correct answer to "2 minus 1" when Obama asked students basic arithmetic questions.

Obama replied to the student, "subtraction is tougher than addition."

The poor kid is ruined, will always be in debt per advice from Obama.


We conservatives are well aware of Obama's difficulty with subtracting, especially with the federal budget and loose spending.

Reminds me of another statement, "If I had a son he'd look just like Trayvon Martin." It doesn't matter to him the division of red & blue is enough, let's add more black & white, too.

Even as his administration has faced intense scrutiny over a trio of controversies, President Obama’s approval rating hasn’t suffered, according to a new CNN/ORC International poll released Sunday.
Fifty-three percent of Americans said they approve of the job the president is doing, while 45 percent said they disapprove. That’s virtually unchanged from an early April survey in which Obama’s approval/disapproval split was 51 percent to 47 percent.

Did you happen to notice that the article clearly stated that the total purchase amount was for the next 4-5 years out, which would indicate that the total is not being purchased now, hence how can they be "stockpiling". For someone who is quick to question the comprehension abilities of others, you do seem to jump to conclusions quite a bit yourself.
Another point is that the amount of ammo used in a war, in this case the amount used in Iraq, has no bearing on the amount of ammo required for training personel in these various federal agencies.
Recycled fears, recycled lies.
The purchase of 1.2 billion bullets is fuel for thought, as you have proven by your last 3 posts. You say it's recycled lies, yet keep bringing it up? Automatic spending cuts must not include stockpiling weapons for the DHS. Obama promised transparency in government, yet no explanation, not even a mention, about the purchase of 1.2 BILLION rounds of bullets. The best thought I read about this Homeland weapon build-up is... "Obama claims to be all about transparency & peace, all this coming from a president who couldn't take 15 minutes out of his morning to have a biscuit with the Dalai Lama". Yet, chose to meet with Hugo Chavez, Daniel Ortega, & Putin, during his first 6 months of presidency.

"purchase amount for the next 4-5 years" - and the supply has been compared to enough to fight the Iraq war for 24 years [ 4-5 years versus 24 - see a problem]. But you yourself stated that "has no bearing" on the comparison - agreed. So instead we go to DHS own statements about typical usage of 15 million rounds/year. And they have bought 1.6 billion - that equates to 106 year supply - I would call that stockpiling - how's that comprehension going?

And most if not all, depending on the article, of that ammo is hollow point - which is illegal to use in wartime and is NOT used for training purposes, it's too expensive. So tell me -just when and where is the DHS going to use ammunition that our military is not allowed to use because it is "so lethal that the Geneva Convention does not allow their use on the battle field in time of war."

Education:
You create a country where:
- college education is harder and harder to afford;
- you cut back on student loans and grants;
First, student loans and grants have only grown. The dirty little secret is the ease of obtaining student loans is a direct cause of the growth in college tuition.
Those whose parents could not afford to help them with college, in the past, would delay college and work for a year or two and save money, or would attend a local college and live at home, or go to college part time while working. Is it harder on the student, yes, but I know MANY who went that route.
However, the student loan program made it easy to go directly to college whether you could initially afford it or not. Colleges saw that increasing tuition didn't have as big an impact on enrollment any more because the students are not savvy enough to realize the debt hole they are digging. This negatively impacted all students as tuition rates have grown approximately 130% over the last 20 years.

Also impacting student debt are students who in the past would have settled for the public university in their state, may decide to go ahead and go to that out of state school or even that private university which is so much more expensive - after all, I'll just take out a loan and pay it back later. Consequently, the student loan bubble is one more economic threat on the horizon. And we have legislators who are saying "oh, those poor little students just didn't know what they were doing when they signed on the dotted line. It isn't FAIR to expect them to pay back their loans - let's forgive the debt - more irresponsibility being rewarded because , like Boxer in Animal Farm , the taxpayer can
always "work harder."

Budget cuts of 331 Million did occur. It would have affected the Benghazi budget by about $57,000 per week.

Here is the text that was pulled from the referenced article and the link that was supplied in my original post which was in reply to a posting of yours so many pages ago. As you can see DHS is not the only agency making the purchase.

It doesn't matter what type of ammo is illegal in a war zone, US law enforcement has been using hollow points since the mid-1990's.

And yes, hollow points are used in training if your goal is to make the training as realistic as possible.

Why is the Department of Homeland Security buying so many bullets?
Published February 14, 2013
Associated Press
http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/02/14/wh...

...Federal solicitations to buy the bullets are known as "strategic sourcing contracts," which help the government get a low price for a big purchase, says Peggy Dixon, spokeswoman for the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Glynco, Ga . The training center and others like it run by the Homeland Security Department use as many as 15 million rounds every year, mostly on shooting ranges and in training exercises.

Dixon said one of the contracts would allow Homeland Security to buy up to 750 million rounds of ammunition over the next five years for its training facilities. The rounds are used for basic and advanced law enforcement training for federal law enforcement agencies under the department's umbrella. The facilities also offer firearms training to tens of thousands of federal law enforcement officers. More than 90 federal agencies and 70,000 agents and officers used the department's training center last year.

The rest of the 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition would be purchased by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the federal government's second largest criminal investigative agency.

ICE's ammunition requests in the last year included:
--450 million rounds of .40-caliber duty ammunition
--40 million rounds of rifle ammunition a year for as many as five years, for a total bullet-buy of 200 million rounds
--176,000 rifle rounds on a separate contract
--25,000 blank rounds

Why do we want to "disassemble public education" -
Because Charles and David Koch told you to think that.

I know - you'll disagree, and you'll believe what you say when you disagree. You aren't aware of them telling you that!

In the 1980 Presidential Election David Koch ran as vice-president. He spent over 2,000,000 in his own funds for less than 1% of the vote.

Please see this actual Policy Platform chart from that election:
http://www.billionairesteaparty.com/wp-conten...

Notice among other things he wanted to abolish public schools.

Since that extremely ineffective attempt to gain power he's taken a different tactic: Building the largest propaganda machine ever known on the history of the planet.

If you follow the development of this, he's directly responsible for the establishment of the Tea Party - while most Tea Party supporters are completely unaware of him.

While there are quite a few steps in-between that we haven't brought up, the simple answer is this:

You want to abolish Public Education because David Koch told you to think that.

True.
