Apparently DHS is Immune to Budget Cuts!

Federal agencies have already bought 1.6 Billion rounds of high caliber ammo, plus Homeland Security is getting 2,700 of these "armored personnel carriers" for use domestically. I'm guessing these are expensive little buggers. Why do we suddenly need almost three thousand urban tanks?

BrassCheckTV points out that "Federal agencies who barely have a need for ammunition buy 1.6 BILLION rounds of highly lethal hollow point and sniper bullets. In contrast, even at the height of the Iraq War, the US Army used less than 100 million rounds a year."

Also, hollow point bullets aren't used by the military. Although government spokestoadies have insisted the hollow point ammo ordered by the agencies are for "target practice", that's patently absurd. No one target shoots with hollow points - their sole purpose is to create maximum organ damage inside the body. you feel more secure now?

Those American Pacific Rim investors will need all the protection they can get when Americans realize they have to pay for fucked up deals that make 2008 look like stealin gfromn the Sunday collection plate.

It's gonna get worse...then we're all gonna die.

They probably didn't even make all those tanks in America! Bastards.

Wonder what each one of those costs??
