In a time in this great country when 1 in 6 families are unsure where their next meal is coming from, the Department of Homeland Security goes whole hog in the trough of the public coffers.
And I mean whole hog.
In their latest solicitation to separate the American people from their money, the headquarters for the Transportation Safety Administration (or as some think of them, “Thousands Sexually Assaulted”) believes they need explosives magazines, starting with six different locations around the nation, but can and will include sites outside of the United States. They intend to set the contract for magazines to be purchased over the next five years.
Those locations include: Atlantic City, NJ, Houston, TX, Orange County, CA, Portland, OR, Fort Meyers, FL, and Tampa, FL
The solicitation expects a quick response, by 11 September 2013.
From the Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) document:
The maximum ceiling amount of all task orders placed against this BPA shall be $950,000,000. The Government is under no obligation to the BPA holder to purchase any specified quantity or dollar value of services. Preparation costs associated with calls proposals shall not be passed to the Government. <emphasis in original>
What exactly are they buying?
Specially designed boxes known as storage magazines to store large volume of small amounts of explosives, and ammunition, such as the the 3,454,000 rounds of the 357 Sig Ammunition that they have requested.
The magazines being requested come in different shapes, but the technical specifics are all the same.
The sizes being requested are:
- 6ft L x 5 ft W x7 ft H Magazine
- 14ft Lx7 ft W x7 ft H Duplex Magazine
- 7ft L x 7ft W x7 ft H Magazine
We can barely feed our poor. We barely have a functioning economy, and the government wastes even more money than what our great-grandchildren can ever produce in their lifetimes.
When will this all end?
