Exploiting Harvey: Sessions Cites “Superficial Concerns” to Justify End of Posse Comitatus

Jeff Sessions went off the deep end (hee hee) saying we need to undo restrictions on 1033 program in order to help folks in Texas get to dry land. Last time I checked a grenade launcher was NOT a flotation device. I could be wrong but I don’t think I am.

  1. I’d like to know why there’s so much “surplus” military equipment while they’re fighting “wars” all over the world? Of course, I know the answer, but as a great number of people in this country are doing without necessities, the military is paying for surplus equipment. This is unacceptable.

    They seem to have pretty much trampled all over posse comitatus and the Constitution. War equipment is not for the benefit of public safety. It’s the opposite. Anyone who believes these people are interested in public safety aren’t paying attention to what’s going on in this country. I would be in favor of disarming police entirely, as well as a number of other restrictions on government authority. And I’m sort of old fashioned — I don’t believe in instigating wars with innocent people. I think military forces should stay home unless called up because of a real public safety threat, and whoever is actually causing the threat should be the target of military action.

  2. As ISIS is getting wiped out by real soldiers defending their own land, they now have a “weapons gap”. What to do, what to do? Well, local and state taxpayers here we come. Time to lay out more of your paycheck for leftover weapons.

    Plus as America further deteriorates into 3rd world status, a militarized police is pretty much on par with what you get in Honduras, except for one very big difference. Americans are very well armed, so the beatdown requires even more force and even more weaponry.

    We had to destroy the village in order to save it…

    • What anti-gun advocates don’t realize is that when push comes to shove, you have to defend yourself in any way available.

    • Not to split hairs but… Americans are only “very well armed” with tricked out 22’s and purse guns (neither of which makes a dent in a tank).
