Meteorologists are a violent breed, slow to anger, but once riled up will kill without mercy until no one is left standing.

"So, we're looking at clear and pleasant with a low of 64 for tonight, mostly sunny and a seasonably perfect high of 82 for tomorrow, and on Saturday you might wanna steer clear of the clock tower for I am Become the Angel of Death and the Time of Atonement is Nigh! Now Biff with sports!"

"in Rand Paul's mind, the National Weather Service has ordered 46,000 hollow-point bullets.... In reality, ammunition and targets were ordered for the NOAA Fisheries Office of Law Enforcement. There was a clerical error on the paperwork -- the ammunition isn't going to the National Weather Service."

What the hell does NOAA need 46,000 hollow point bullets for? I know that fish scales *look* like armor, but shouldn't someone tell them the truth before they hurt themselves?

NOAA's Office of Law Enforcement is responsible for carrying out more than 35 federal statutes. The agency's jurisdiction spans more than 3 million square miles of open ocean, more than 85,000 miles of U.S. coastline, the country's 13 National Marine Sanctuaries and its Marine National Monuments. It's also responsible for enforcing U.S. treaties and international law governing the high seas and international trade.

Plus, this specific order is cause it's recert time with the bang bangs.

In other words, It's time for the people who do carry guns to do their proficiency re certification.

Well, Randal is his birth name according to the wiki. It's peculiar how he stopped short of the nickname "Randy," or why he didn't just go with "Randal" or "Bocephus."

Rand. OK.

Ha ha. Some copy pasta.

I see only two possible scenarios: 1) They want to get all the ammo off the market so it's not available for American citizens to purchase. or 2) They plan on using the ammo against us in the future.

Appears to be all 40mm hollow points, if so, that aint for target practice.

Forty milimeter would be about an inch and a half. Forty caliber is a little under a half inch, or just a tad above a .38 caliber round. I don't own any such weapon and prefer a 7.62 X .39. The government is obviously ordering such armament for close quarter street fighting, much like the .30 caliber carbines used in WWII. Gird thy loins.

Scares the poop out of me. I have seen what a 40mm round can do. Monster! I really do not fully understand the concept. PLUS HOLLOW POINTS!. My SKS can do plenty of damage with the 7.62 X .39 rounds. This is insane. I will look further into this.

My favorite comment from there--
28 years old South African woman was initiated into the kingdom of darkness by her parents when she was born. The evil spirits caused her to eat soil, paper, erasers, cloth and maize meal. After her deliverance she gives a chilling testimony about lucifer the anti-Christ, the cause of conflict, confusion and all the horrible things you see happening in the world.

Here's a fun one:

Word on the street is Obama is planning a fake assassination attempt on his life so he can then declare Marshall Law prior to November 6 in an attempt to post pone the election if he feels he is not going to get re-elected. Presumptive, Obama needs 4 more years before taking on this action but will move quicker if need be to null and void the Constitution; hence requiring a new constitution.
Word on the streets is the Military is planning a to formally charge Obama with treason and all those around him prior to the election. This action will supposedly terminate all elections as well as null and void the Constitution; hence requiring a new constitution.
We are screwed either way if the Constitutions becomes null and void and elections are terminated for any length of time.
This could be why those who are aligned with Obama are taking the action they are. Suggest you take similar action: food, water and shelter for months, maybe years.

Weird, I remember hearing a 'gonna cancel the election' conspiracy around 2003. I believe a shadow government was involved, rather than the nullification of the Constitution.
