    If we are going to wet our proverbial pants over 0.3% in annual spending cuts when we're running up trillion dollar annual deficits, then we're done. Put a fork in us. We're finished. We're going to default eventually and that's why the feds are stockpiling bullets in case of civil unrest. Sarah Palin

    couldn't pull up the articles on my phone...

    sounds like more of Palin hyperbole rather than fact?

    The government bought several years supply in bulk to get a lower price.
    Somehow that was misconstrued in imaginative ways.

    Those with tin foil hats have difficulty with facts. It is much easier to create panic with hyperbole and theatrics than seek truth.

    I don't subscribe to the whole prepper mentality. This just seems like another desperate attempt to create drama where none need be.
