You know what, Dunlapian, they know all of this stuff they say & put up isn't true, but they're actually making fun of the People out there who are too busy trying to survive to keep up with all this stuff...and they're taking advantage of their situation to try & fool them into voting for somebody that will only make their Lives worse. And they just rubs me the wrong way....kinda like a Con Artist preying on innocent people who are already having a rough time just trying to get by.
So, as long as they keep doing what they are doing, I just can't sit idly by & not try to, at least, give those struggling People a way of learning the truth. I don't know if any of them click on the Links, but I put them up & if they don't, then I've done all that I can do to help them make a knowlegable choice in the Voting Booth...and that's why I do it.

Ok, so the Social Security Administration that deals primarily with old and disabled people, just bought 174,000 (I wonder who came up with that number? Why not 100,00 or 300,000?).357 hollow point, aka dumb dumb bullets. Hollow points are used for one purpose. To do the most damage to the target, with little to no collateral damage. Translated, it means that they want the bullet to go in and not come out, possibly taking out bystanders.
So the question is “WHY does the SS administration need them?” Are they gonna shoot granny when she shakes her cane at the unionized robots that work there, when they refuse to pay a medical bill? Are they gonna take gramps down when he attacks them with his walker? Maybe all this ammo is for the death panels.
“I’m sorry, but we cannot cover the operation that you need. You’re too old and too sick. However, we’ll be glad to offer you an alternative. It’s called the Hollow Point” procedure.
No, Timbuk, the Koch Bros. paid the SSA to do it. They anticipate a Republican win and the bullets are for euthanizing the old people before they push them over the cliff for mass burial. You see, the Ryan/Romney/Tea Party coalition are determined to get rid of Medicare and cut costs! This is the hollow point approach.

This is the answer the SSA gives for ordering the ammunition's. From the Official OIG site.
The SSA’s Office of the Inspector General’s said it posted a new blog on the agency’s website,“Beyond the Numbers,”“as we strive to be a transparent and accountable government organization for all of our stakeholders.
“With those goals in mind, we thought it would be appropriate to address recent media reports regarding the organization’s purchase of ammunition for our special agents’ duty weapons,” the blog post states.
The blog states that the SSA has 295 special agents who work in 66 offices across the United States.
“These investigators have full law enforcement authority, including executing search warrants and making arrests,” the blog post states.“Our investigators are similar to your State or local police officers.
“They use traditional investigative techniques, and they are armed when on official duty,” the blog post states.

That really clears that up, though I can't recall the last time the SS admin was involved in a shootout.

So, where's the explanation of why the weather service (NOA) needs their ammo?

Shooting birds that attack weather stations?

Reportedly, Hillary told Obama to go stuff it yesterday to replace the vice dufus in chief.

But we'd rather that Obama keep Biden on the ticket. Run, Joe Run:

When was the last time you heard of them raiding one of those Bogus "Medical" facilities, either. I don't think I've ever heard of them doing it & I don't understand why. Now, if you find a legitimate answer for that, I'd be interested in reading it.
All I can figure is that the Republicans wanted Medicare to go broke & the Democrats were just lazy & didn't care until the Program was in danger of running out of money. Maybe, most of the Dems in Congress actually thought the Gov't. would pay back the money they took out & pick up their IOU's, until the economy tanked & then, it was their, "Oh Chit" moment! I don't know, it's never made any sense to me since I saw that 60 Minutes Report. If 60 Minutes cpuld find one of those Bogus Places & find out the money they were bringing, then I know the Federal Gov't. certainly could have, but as far as I know the Place is STILL in business.

From NOAA:

Due to a clerical error in the federal business vendor process, a solicitation for ammunition and targets for the NOAA Fisheries Office of Law Enforcement mistakenly identified NOAA's National Weather Service as the requesting office. The error is being fixed and will soon appear correctly in the electronic federal bidding system.

The ammunition is standard issue for many law enforcement agencies and it will be used by 63 NOAA enforcement personnel in their firearms qualifications and training.
NOAA overseas the National Marine Fisheries Service, which is responsible for all U.S. marine resources. The acquisition mentions this agency, NMFS and the OLE — Office of law Enforcement.

The reason for the number of rounds.

Agents and officers are required to have 200 rounds in his or her duty bag, and twice-a-year firearm qualification and training calls for agents to use another 500-600 rounds. In addition, firearms instructors with more than one pistol may need more rounds in a year. In 2011, the guidance was that each agent and officer would need 700 rounds per year to meet these requirements.
There are 111 special agents and 23 enforcement officers, bringing the total number of OLE agents to 134.

NOAA officers and agents enforce the nation's ocean and fishing laws to ensure a level playing field for fishermen and to protect marine species like whales, dolphins and turtles.

NOAA's Office of Law Enforcement is dedicated to enforcing laws that conserve and protect our nation's living marine resources and their natural habitat.

I LOVE Joe Biden! Considering that he's had brain surgery, I think he does just fine. And make no mistake about it, he's a good Man & he's nobody's Fool...he never sees a Stranger & I just love him. He's just got a little of that "foot in Mouth" disease, but I can relate to that, too. Lol!

I feel so much better now that the weather service is protecting turtles from armed insurrection.

God, we need to make this government smaller. CUT, CUT, CUT.

Earlier this week Radford, Virginia business owner Chris McMurray refused to host Joe Biden at his bakery Crumb and Get it. McMurray said he didn’t agree with the Obama administration’s policies.

From WDBJ news:

“Why in the world would a new business owner say “no” to a photo op with the Vice President of the United States?

McMurray said it was President Obama’s recent remarks about small business and who built what.
“Very simply,‘you didn’t build that’” McMurray said.“Speaking of small businesses and entrepreneurs all across this country and actually last night my wife was up all night. No sleep, she’s worked a full 24 hours.”

When “Crumb and Get It” said ‘no’,“River City Grill,” just around the corner, said ‘yes’ and has the pictures to prove it, and didn’t care about the politics.

“If you want to throw in some libertarians as well that’s fine too. Stop in as well,” Chris Bell said.“Just bring your money. Sure, right!
Back at the bakery, a couple of guys said they’d hoped to see Biden and didn’t care that the VP had been turned away.

“I mean it really doesn’t matter to me. Everyone has their own views so I love the food here anyway. I agree. Everybody’s different so I could care less,” said Spenser Critterton of Radford.

So what happened to this brave business owner?

Today “Crumb and Get It” in Radford had to shut down at 1:15 p.m.

They ran out of food. His business has been overwhelmed after he told Biden NO!

But the best part is for last.

“Shortly after Crumb and Get It told Biden’s advance people ‘no’— the secret service walked in and told Chris McMurray ”Thanks for standing up and saying ‘no’— then they bought a whole bunch of cookies and cupcakes.“

NOAA Weather is just one of the agency's departments.

I agree. Government is way too big.

At least lets have the facts about the issues. There is a lot of propaganda out there to spin.
I would rather make an informed decision.

No Tim, I'm not talking about Medical Personnel...I know about those , we had a Doctor right here in my 'lil ole Town to get busted for that type of thing.
What I am talking about are empty Buildings set up just to have a legitimate address to mail the checks to from Medicare. Nothing in them, never has been, but they have a legitimate address & if checked through records, rather than on-site inspection, everything looks fine & on the up & up. But, visit in-Person & it's locked up & nothing , but a shell building.

Wonder what the SS would have been ordered to do, if Romney/Ryan had been President & VP? I know they would not have looked at it that it was the Business Owner's Right to refuse. After all, their Big Ego's wouldn't have allowed them to let a "lil Ole Nobody" refuse them, they have way too much money to take that kind of treatment from a Poor Man. "He must be destroyed" to teach everybody else a lesson in this Country because I (Ryan) am Wealthy & he (the Shop-owner) is Poor! Why, who does he think he is, one of the 1%ers?
