Bee's note: Have you noticed the recent ads on TV about "buying gold" (to replace the worthless dollar)? Our economy is so low, many are warning that the Stock Market crash of 1929 will look like a day in the park compared to what looms ahead for Americans.
Americans are reading warnings about stocking up on food and canned goods. Those who lived through these terrible days in America's history never got over those days. My husband's parents kept a huge canned goods pantry throughout their marriage - prepared for the worse throughout their lives! Forty years ago, I worked for a woman who told me her father could not bare the loss of his investments and jumped out of a 20 story window (as did many others). Closer to home, a family member's father hung himself in the barn, leaving 13 children to be raised by the mother and the older children dropping out of school to help work to support the family.
Are we there yet? Almost! We are reading about the loss of homes and jobs and with that, the loss of pride of the parents who once took pride in their ability to care for the families. When you remove the roof over your heads and the empty stomachs of those going to bed hungry, what is left?! Obama's food stamp program?! Even those will run dry over a period of time.
Here's my guess as to why our government and all its federal agencies are stocking up on ammo: I think they could be preparing for an all out revolution, brought on by the devastation of a complete collapse of our economy.
My second guess is that the people reject the dictatorship of this president. I just posted an article about his attempts to change America's flag with his logo. First, the logo, then the flag! A review of his 4 years of by-passing Congress and the many speeches he has given, suggesting that many of his Executive Orders were because he could not work with Congress, is a president out of control and ignoring the U.S. Constitution. His administration has pushed America to the edge of a cliff - not much more is necessary before there is an all out revolution!
This president is a very dangerous man - not one bit naive, as some describe him. Every move he makes is one step closer to his final goals. When foreign newspapers begin noticing, such as the Israel National News (below), is it any wonder Americans should be very concerned?
U.S. Homeland Security is preparing for an all-out “American Spring” rebellion and has bought 1.2 billion bullets for trained snipers.

U.S. Homeland is preparing for an all-out “American Spring” rebellion and has bought 1.2 billion bullets for counterterrorist snipers.
However, the U.S. Army has been preparing for rebellion in the streets, and a Police training manual, entitled “Civil Disturbance Operations” describes how to suppress riots and kill civilians when confronting “dissidents." The manual states, “Warning shot will not be fired,” Watson reported.
An additional 200 million bullets are to be purchased,Infowars.com writer and author Paul Joseph Watson.
The new purchase is for .223 rifle ammunition, plus another 176,000 rounds of .308 caliber 168 grain hollow point boat tail (HPBT) rounds in addition to 25,000 rounds of blank .308 caliber bullets.
“It is the type of ammunition and not necessarily the quantity that is troubling,” James Smith Prepper Podcast was quoted as saying.
“All of the sniper grade ammunition is being used by trained, or in-the-process-of-being-trained snipers,” wrote Smith. Adding up the number of lethal bullets tallies a potential 135,384 kills for the snipers, based on U.S. Army and Marine figures from the Vietnam War, when soldiers used 1.3 rounds of ammunition for each verified kill.
Homeland Security’s purchases of the huge arsenal “is both worrying and ironic given that Americans are being harassed and treated with suspicion for buying a couple of boxes of ammo at their local gun store,” Watson wrote.
Government officials have refused to comment.
Nearly half a billion rounds of ammunition purchased last March expand on entry into a body to cause maximum wounds. The large number of bullets raises questions if such large quantities are needed only for training.
In addition, 750 million bullets can penetrate walls.
The Homeland Security purchases are in addition to a controversial 174,000 bullets purchased by the Social Security Administration and reported by mainstream , which has largely overlooked Homeland Security’s huge arsenal or has considered it a result of paranoia.
