Social Security buys 174,000 hollow-point bullets
By John Seiler
This is from Major General Jerry Curry, a retired U.S. Army officer:
“The Social Security Administration (SSA) confirms that it is purchasing 174 thousand rounds of hollow point bullets to be delivered to 41 locations in major cities across the U.S. No one has yet said what the purpose of these purchases is, though we are led to believe that they will be used only in an emergency to counteract and control civil unrest. Those against whom the hollow point bullets are to be used — those causing the civil unrest — must be American citizens; since the SSA has never been used overseas to help foreign countries maintain control of their citizens.”
The last time I was in a Social Security office was in 2009, when I needed a new Soc. Sec. card. I went to their office in Fountain Valley. A donut-loving guard stood by the doorway, packing a semi-automatic pistol. The Soc. Sec. clerks sat behind bullet-proof windows. The “customers” were a typical group of beaten-down, dismayed, government-harassed modern Americans. That was in the depth of the Great Recession.
The previous time was in Prescott, Ariz., after my father died in 2008. I filed a death certificate to halt his Soc. Sec. payments. There was a guard there, too, thinner but also bearing a gun. The Soc. Sec. clerks there also sat behind bullet-proof windows.
What are they afraid of? Grannies caning each other?
Now, the guards will have hollow-point bullets. According to Gen. Curry:
“What would be the target of these 174,000 rounds of hollow point bullets? It can’t simply be to control demonstrators or rioters. Hollow point bullets are so lethal that the Geneva Convention does not allow their use on the battle field in time of war. Hollow point bullets don’t just stop or hurt people, they penetrate the body, spread out, fragment and cause maximum damage to the body’s organs. Death often follows.”
“In March DHS [Department of Homeland Security] ordered 750 million rounds of hollow point ammunition. It then turned around and ordered an additional 750 million rounds of miscellaneous bullets including some that are capable of penetrating walls. This is enough ammunition to empty five rounds into the body of every living American citizen. Is this something we and the Congress should be concerned about? What’s the plan that requires so many dead Americans, even during times of civil unrest? Has Congress and the Administration vetted the plan in public.”
I think this is the reaction of a fearful predator. Politicians always say they “serve” us, and will implement “hope” and “change” that will better our lives.
But the government really is a parasite. And it’s stocking up on ammo to make sure the host doesn’t get away.
