Social Security buys 174,000 hollow-point bullets

Oct. 25, 2012

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.”

He adds:

“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.

    The reason for these ammunition purchases is simple. Just about every Federal agency now has it’s own police force and fascist goon squad of SWAT operators. Wake up folks, your country is a police state. Why does SSA or HUD need SWAT teams? They already have the FBI and Federal Marshals Service.

    “Amerikans love big gummit. And one day they are going to find out just how brutal big gummit is.”

    Yes indeed, but by then it will be too late. The average Amerikan is quite satisfied enjoying the bread and circuses doled out by the imperial regime in The District of Criminals. They won’t risk losing all that by confronting The Overlords. We have become a nation of deadbeats, parasites and lunkheads fit only for slavery in a Federal gulag.

    Just try not paying your student loan debt. They send in the swat team. You can look that up. The IRS many times sends in swat or near swat teams to do a search for paper records.
    But all the govt combined in amerika is small compared to even the illegal alien numbers in this country.

    Merely their way of making social security actuarially sound. Once you have used up your allotment of retirement funds, they will send out the real “death squads”.

    A point.. if your wish to be taken seriously you might want to get some basic facts straight, your quotation “Hollow point bullets are so lethal that the Geneva Convention does not allow their use on the battle field in time of war” is invalid on 2 points.

    First it the Hague Convention on warfare
    Declaration on the Use of Bullets Which Expand or Flatten Easily in the Human Body; July 29, 1899

    Second The United States never ratified the Hague Convention, it abides by it out of choice with some argument on the Sierra Match King HP bullets.

    Additionally the use of Hollow Point bullets is now and has been common for civilian and law enforcement or over 40 years. The days of 158g RN .38 Special for issue use is pretty much over.

    I agree its odd that SSA needs all that ammo, but that does not make getting facts right goes out the window.

    SS is not an entitlement. Its your money and you are just getting it back. If you are stupid enough to think that you can live on that little bit, then you made a very bad mistake way back when. These are the people who think the govt owes them. The rest of us are taking responsibility for our own actions.

    I did research on Sacramento’s outrageously high homeless population and found out that most of them receive Social Security payments.

    It’s not just American geriatrics who receive Social Security checks; vagrants, vandals, children, family members and who knows who else receive Social Security checks.

    It’s so not about the old people anymore. And it is those entitlement recipients that the Social Security administration fears.
