Have you heard the hilarious new riddle that's been sweeping through the halls of the Department of Homeland Security? It goes like this:
Question: What do you have when you've stockpiled 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition in 10 months?
Answer: Not enough bullets! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
Okay, we're not laughing either - especially since Janet Napolitano just ordered another 21.6 million bullets to add to her "homeland" arsenal. But what in blazes is she expecting to happen within our borders which will require so much firepower?
To put the numbers into perspective, at the peak of the Iraq war our military was using 5.5 million bullets a month. By that standard, Janet Napolitano's troops now have enough ammo to wage full scale war on someone for 30 years. Someone here at home.
Or another way to look at it is 5 bullets for every man, woman, and child in America. Literally.
It seems uncomfortably coincidental that Barack Obama and company are pushing hard for the disarmament of citizens, while simultaneously stockpiling jaw-dropping (or dissidence-stopping) amounts of domestic artillery, including hollow point bullets intended to kill rather than wound.
Someone with a suspicious mind might imagine that Obama and the DHS are preparing for something huge, something secret, and something which would be so disruptive to our economy that bullets might be unavailable for years or decades.
Fortunately, here at Hope n' Change Cartoons, we don't have suspicious minds!
Or at least we're not admitting we do until our Kevlar longjohns arrive in the mail.
