Ok, I think I've figured this all out. Stay with me here.
Lead = toxic heavy metal Ammunition = uses lead Save the environment = buy up all the lead Gummint agencies = purchase a lot of ammunition
One problem: doesn't the use of hollow points undercut the amount of lead used in each bullet? -- "Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God!" -- P.Henry, 1775
... By a small amount meaning they have to stockpile even more ammo
Ahh...! Thanks for clearing that up... I didn't realize it also functions as another stimulus program. -- "Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God!" -- P.Henry, 1775
Not only has the Social Security Administration purchased multithousands of rounds of hollow point bullets but so have the Department of Homeland Security and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
Sources have further indicated that ammunition and firearms have been delivered to multiple agencies of the federal government, including the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Education, the Department of Health and Human Services, and the Internal Revenue Service, among others.
We were going to make a casing mold of Heather's torso so we could make a balistics gel casing to shoot up with all our guns but this is our first time trying to life cast something so it didn't turn out the way we needed it to and will have to try again. But we thought you guys might like to see the video of this atempt!
Let me try again then..inherently does not cut it for me..now if the post is cutting down a political party just to play politics or some elected official...that's politics...but if it has to do with the government spending and waste..that's fair game and in this case seems to be trying to convince us this is all needed for our Security and Protection and I am not buying that either..that's not politics..it is common sense. As for infowars..you might not like the place but the info was not political. -- Gladiator Security Forum »www.gladiator-antivirus.com/
It's unclear what relevance your post has in reply to my claim that "infowars is inherently political".
Let me try again: a man who posts a link to infowars ought not to subsequently complain that the forum is "becoming" political.
A news item is either factual or not, on its own merits... the political leanings of those who publish it aren't relevant to its inherent factuality (or lack of same). The 'infowars' blurb(s) have been also reported by a number of other news sources not necessarily of the same political leanings. Things become "political" in the forum when overt opinions about party or ideology begin to creep in. -- "Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?

And I love it when 4 to 5 members posts in threads only to lam blast a website . It's like..if you find info there..you've been fished in and we are not going to discuss the content.
Reminds me of the AV wars that used to run wild here..and if it was not Norton..you better not be bringing it here. Now we have people in this forum who won't use a Security Product cause they don't like the guy who own it...or it's Russian stuff..etc..
It really shows how far we have come..but maybe not.
It is also interesting that they are the same people who rarely or never start a topic..but they love to jump in with an opinion. -- Gladiator Security Forum »www.gladiator-antivirus.com/
The redacted document you show in your post is a J&A (Justification and Approval) for other than Full and Open Competition. It is not an award document. It is The agency's justification as to why a contract was not posted for others to bid on. The redacted parts generally are names, pricing, company trade secrets and stuff of that nature. (They actually did a poor job of redacting since you can read some of it). J&A's usually have to be posted within 14 days of a contract award. And they are always redacted.
In this case the J&A for a sole source award has to do with an urgent need for this ammo. Actually the only odd thing I see missing from the J&A is a Purchase Request number, at my agency we place the PR on the J&A's to help identify which contract they belong to. »www.fbo.gov/index?tab=documents&···d89f131a -- Cry "Havoc!" and let slip the dogs of war
In a letter this week to Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, Oklahoma Sen. James Inhofe wrote that the Pentagon had created a one time waiver to allow uniform wear in the parade on July 21, quoting DOD policy that servicemembers shall not march or ride in a partisan political parade.
So how did the Pentagon make its decision, and is Inhofe right when he says the Pentagon, under pressure from the Obama administration to advance its social agenda, made a special exception for the LGBT cause?
Some of the questions surrounding the DODs decision:
Was there a waiver?
No. DODs decision to approve uniform wear in the parade wasnt based on an exception to policy and it didnt use the term waiver.
In a July 19 policy memo explaining the DODs decision, Rene Bardorf, deputy assistant secretary of defense for community and public outreach, summarized policies that prohibit wearing the uniform while participating in political or commercial activities, or activities that discredit the military.
Essentially, the Pentagon decided the San Diego parade fell under none of those categories a conclusion hotly disputed by Inhofe and declared that existing policy allowed servicemembers to march in uniform.
excellent, the Pentagon now wants to have their d... sucked in a glory hole by minority members of the altar boys at the nearest church by congress. or so it seems. But nothing is what it seems, is it?
quote:Hollow point bullets designed to cause maximum organ damage Paul Joseph Watson
Why should I consider that story lead-in to be factual?
quote:Despite the ban on military use, hollow-point bullets are one of the most common types of civilian and police ammunition, due largely to the reduced risk of bystanders being hit by over-penetrating or ricocheted bullets, and the increased speed of incapacitation.
There is more in the topic of accuracy, and weapon cleaning; such that armed NOAA Fisheries Office of Law Enforcement personnel, performing LE duties, would find them as useful as the local cop on the beat.
Sounds like the usual media sensationalistic effort to boost sales, or whatever. -- Norman ~Oh Lord, why have you come ~To Konnyu, with the Lion and the Drum
