Hey buddy can you spare a round?
U.S. MILITARY OUT OF BULLETS--THANK YOU BILL CLINTON

We knew that the Clinton's oppose citizens having weapons, did not know
they didn't trust our military to have ammunition. This is from the Salt
Lake City Tribune 3-14-01. Sadly, our enemies now know about the sorry
state of readiness for our military. Shame on congress for allowing this
to happen.

Militia's Bullet Offer Is Rejected

BY RUBY L. BAILEY KNIGHT RIDDER NEWS SERVICE

DETROIT -- The U.S. Army had been telling its non fighting troops to
pretend their guns were loaded for nearly a month when Nick Stoner got
wind of the fact that the government had run out of money for training
ammunition.

What Uncle Sam calls a short-term supply glitch, Stoner, the executive
director of the Michigan Militia Inc., maintains is a national security
crisis. So the 30-member group started Operation Help a Brother Out, an
ammunition fund-raiser for the U.S. military.

Stoner is taking cash or bullets -- 9 mm, 124-grain, full-metal jacket
only-- and plans to send all the group can gather to the Pentagon. So far,
members have raised $200, mainly through their Web Site.

U.S. military leaders "were surprised to say the least," said Stoner, 33,
when he contacted the Pentagon. "They haven't been able to give us an
address to send it to."

But even if an address were available, the Army can't accept the group's
donation. The Army is required to purchase ammunition from federal
suppliers only and cannot accept monetary donations, said spokesman Maj.
Tom Artis.

Artis said he applauds the group's patriotism, but "it's not like we can
just go to Wal-Mart. And it's not like you can bring up a wheelbarrow full
of cash and we can accept it."

The Army has been low on ammunition since about January, with no word on
when it will end. The ammunition stockpiled for combat remains intact,
according to Army officials. Artis declined to say what types of weapons
and training have been affected.

Reduced funding in last year's military budget is the likely cause of the
ammunition shortage, said H. Sterling Burnett, senior analyst for the
National Center for Policy Analysis, a political think tank in Dallas. In
1999, the armed forces had a $3.5 billion shortfall for ammunition
purchases alone.

"When the Army says they're temporarily out of bullets, you've got some
serious problems," said Burnett. "Supply glitch or not, it sounds very bad
when they're telling troops they can't practice."

Hear we go again yep! I am not the history buff that some may be out there, but Chainsaw's Post has touched on an item of interest for ALL to look at.

I will never forget. FACT, The straw that broke the camels back concerning the Japs going into Pearl Harbor, was indeed the viewing of a training film being showed of a National Guard Unit training with wooden rifles and NO AMMO! Also the Japs payed attention to the fact that these men didn't not have uniforms either.

I have often been told that history has a way of repeating itself, in this case I hope our people on capitol hill wise up and get things in the proper place. Our country needs a Strong Defense! This keeps us from having to experience another Pearl Harbor forks.

Duster, I hope that Bill isn't any of your relation (I noticed you're from Arkansas too) so that none of the rest of this offends you.

Ole Bill's legacy just keeps getting bigger all the time. Draft Dodger, didn't inhale, stained women's dresses, don't know the difference between a cigar humidor and a lady, pardoned a bunch of crooks and expanded his bank account but doesn't know how, and now we find out he's got the Military on manuevers yelling POW! and rat-a-tat-tat at each other 'cause they're out of shells.
Wonder where it will all end.

No sir! I ain't related to Bill Clinton or any body in politics, except my brother in law who is involved in county politics.

Clinton has done very little for the state of Arkansas, not like a lot of past presidents who in fact saw to it that there state made big gains in many areas.

Did you hear the latest about Old Slick Willie. He has a $4,000,000 leagal bill and now all his LPQ( liberal, pinko, queer) friends have bailed out on him for the slime ball he is. Now if my arithmatic is right his wife just got an $8,000,000 fee for a book, he is a retired president and gets a handsome pension, and his wife is also a senator with a pretty handsome salary. But now they are going to appeal to you and me to help them with their legal bills - RIGHT!!!
