    The Department of Homeland Security (through the U.S. Army Forces Command) recently retrofitted 2,717 of these ‘Mine Resistant Protected’ vehicles for service on the streets of the United States.

    Although I’ve seen and read several online blurbs about this vehicle of late, I decided to dig slightly deeper and discover more about the vehicle itself.

    The new DHS sanctioned ‘Street Sweeper’ (my own slang due to the gun ports) is built by Navistar Defense (NavistarDefense.com), a division within the Navistar organization. Under the Navistar umbrella are several other companies including International Trucks, IC Bus (they make school buses), Monaco RV (recreational vehicles), WorkHorse (they make chassis), MaxxForce (diesel engines), and Navistar Financial (the money arm of the company).

    These will be handy for uprooting the clingers that don't surrender their second amendment rights.

    Good thing I don't live in the City.

    You need not worry, you're too valuable to the progressives at election time.

    Drive-by post coming up, can't stay ...

    Rock, I was reading about this earlier on Drudge link. This one really gets to me.

    First all the ammo purchased by the DHS, which sort of can be explained away because of the way the government has *always* ordered it in alarming sounding numbers for whatever the reasons are (can't think at the moment, but did sound legitimate) ...

    But for what possible reason, other than the unthinkable, do they need armored tanks roaming our cities' streets?

    This to me is a lttle suspect. Is it now time to be a teensy bit paranoid, or what?

    I wasn't aware that the DHS was supposed to be another standing army with light artillery within the country, isn't this stepping on the national guard?

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
