Over the last six months the Department of Homeland Security has purchased a staggering 1.4 BILLION rounds of ammunition to include “200 Million More Rounds of Ammunition” just this month. Is this simply an illustration of the extensive GOVERNMENT WASTE that is going on as federal agencies try to burn through their BUDGET DOLLARS before the end of the fiscal year on 30 September? Or is this something more sinister as the linked article suggests?
It is a COMPLETE AND UTTER joke to say that DHS people are using that many rounds, and specifically that type, of ammunition for training. I will say right now IT IS A LIE, and I never go with absolutes. I especially enjoyed the TRANSPARENCY STATEMENT stating that DHS officials were hiding certain facts regarding the usage and purchasing of the ammunition.
At the very least, this article demonstrates how RIDICULOUS and JOKE WORTHY DHS really is. If anything, DHS should be investing in the PHYSICAL TRAINING of their people. I have never seen a group of people more out of shape and begging for some type of physical fitness.
However, one cannot ignore the questions posed by the author of this article and wonder… what is DHS really up to?
