and armored trucks. This is on top of all the ammo they have bought and assault rifles.
I think a asteroid is heading to earth and destroy it and this way everyone who gets to the safe zones will be protected? What are your thoughts?

My son's message to Obama, Clemson, and Georgia
DHS had extra money left over at the end of the year and didn't want their budget cut for the next year, duh.
You are right. If you don't spend it, you lose it. Everyone knows that.
2 Billion Rounds of ammo is a little much though.
Government waste only counts when it is spent on entitlements.
Ammo seems like a acceptable investment of US tax dollars.
We only spend 1 trillion a year on weapon systems, homeland security , and defense, but as everyone knows the only reason we have a deficit is because of poor people on welfare.
We need to send those vehicles into certain neighborhoods
Alex Jones is a gotdamn lunatic, but does anyone know if this is a greater expenditure on ammunition than normal by this institution? And if so, how much greater?
Ammo is really hard to find right now unless its crap nobody wants. Most government agencies spend surpluses on crap to fill their budgets, not stuff that's in high demand.
We could use some of those here in Mobile and Prichard
Alex Jones is a nut, but he's also right about this....even though he's not the only one to question this. I can tell you this is an insane amount on ammo and armored vehicles. They claimed the ammo was for training after denying it for a while (typical). The only problem being the ammo is hollow point ammo which is not used for training. There are a lot of inquiries into this by more than a few senators and congressmen, along with Forbes magazine among many others. What should startle you, however....Is the insane amount of tax payer dollars which they feel don't need to answer to. This is our money they are purchasing ammo with and refuse to tell us why. I've been watching this develop ever since I heard about this program at work. Gonna be interesting to say the least.
If I jokingly said "That seems to be the plan if financial crisis causes riots and civil unrest", would you believe me?
Not really. That would require our government to have balls IMO.
There has to be a reason for them to buying this much ammo. BTW, the ammo is enough to fight WW2 for 15 years and not buy any ammo. The other problem is by treaty, we can't use hollow point in war.

One other idea I had. It is a back door to gun control. When the government buys all of something, there is nothing for any one else to buy. So by buying all the ammo, no one else can buy it. I really don't know and looking for ideas on TBB.
It's either hoarding for a purpose or to drive up prices. I really don't see how anyone can believe otherwise, unless these are relatively normal levels...hence me asking earlier. I legitimately don't know how much ammo government programs buy.
China's real estate bubble bursting 2015 or so, unless something happens sooner.
I have to ask my friend what he thinks of this. I will post his crazy conspiracy theory later.
Edit: He said it looks like they are gearing up for some kind of civil unrest. He thinks the fall of the dollar is probably the only thing that can cause that kind of unrest.
I was really hoping he would work in his usual crazy FEMA, Iluminati,, underground war theories, but I guess not this time.

I think that's it. A means of gun control through creating shortages and raising prices on ammo.
I am not buying the civil unrest stuff, our government is not that farsighted.
At any rate DHS owes an explanation. The training explanation is clearly BS. Democrats would probably believe it though...cause they are stupid.
Hollow points seem like the ammo of choice for zombies.
I honestly have no idea. Not an exact date kinda thing from what I hear. I just know steps are being made to prepare for the worst as our economy weakens. I also know some big time economic advisors are predicting some crazy stuff, and that some of my bosses are being asked to be present at these meetings for a military advisory roll.
We would sign a treaty saying we can't use the best ammo...damn we are stupid.
BLF is going to come back on here and tell you the economy is getting better.
I would point out that before every recession our economy DOES get better, due to inflation in order to stimulate the economy. That's what adds to the problem. In hindsight, a 10 year war on top of ridiculous spending to counter the threat of terror at home were probably really bad ideas to put in the hands of our Government. Just my opinion.
Before I'm attacked by some of you way smarter than me on economics that all I have is my opinion on the matter, and it's not that educated at that.

Dude, what are you smoking? Everyone knows it was all Obama's fault, forget about the wars or DHS.
I figured. It was a shot in the dark
