Trust, but verify.
The Constitution preserves the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation where the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.James Madison
Trusting the government to do the right thing is a fool’s errand. Trusting your cat to watch the rabbit while you run to the restroom is a classic example. A cat that is vicious and underhanded will have the rabbit’s foot on it’s key-chain before you get back. A cat that has earned your trust, and one that you trust, will look at the rabbit as a friend.
And what kind of a government do we have?
We have a government that has authorized the murder of US citizens without due process of law. Every article in the Bill of Rights are now subject to the whims of a self professed drug abuser in the White House. And as it turns out, is a closeted bi/homosexual. Our spineless ruler in the White House, narcissistic in every way, has put himself above the good of the Country and has endangered innocent American lives with impunity. Or as Sam Vaknin puts it: “The sadistic narcissist perceives himself as Godlike, ruthless and devoid of scruples, capricious and unfathomable, emotion-less and non-sexual, omniscient, omnipotent and omni-present, a plague, a devastation, an inescapable verdict.”
So it is no wonder that he allows the Queen of Gal Pals, Janet Napolitano, to run up the countries tab buying ammunition for his army of followers. In a recent solicitation for ammunition, even more ammunition is being requested – above and beyond 650 million rounds being requested. All of the ammunition is going to the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Glynco, GA. This is not the first time this year that FLETC has requested ammunition.
What are they doing at FLETC? Eating this stuff?
Each ammunition is broken down by the type, and amount that could be contracted to be purchased for each year of the contract.

Since this “man” took office, I have documented nearly 800 million rounds of ammunition has been purchased. That is almost enough for 3 bullets for each American Citizen. And it will only take one round to start the fighting. It will be the “Round Heard Around The World, part deux”. Mad men do not belong in the most powerful political office. Mad men belong in funny white coats.
And because the government must control everything, the awardee can’t tell the public of the award. It’s a small clause in the PDF:
I don’t claim to know what the future holds, but I’ll end this article with a quote from someone who knows power and madness:
As Machiavelli puts it: “Before all else, be armed.”
