if they've got so much money free that they can make their own SWAT teams, then they've got way too much.
Nearly $2 million spent by the Department of Veterans Affairs on riot
helmets, defender shields, body armor, a “milo return fire cannon
system,” armored mobile shields, Kevlar blankets, tactical gear and
equipment for crowd control.
In the case of the VA, they're probably planning on using it on vets who get sick of being crapped on.
Bullshit. Just piles of it.
Dealing with bullshit of a different variety:
This image of a Native American environmental ethic, however
appealing, is more myth than reality. The actual history of Native
American resource use does not always mesh with the spiritual
environmental ethos attributed to them. By focusing on myth instead
of reality, environmentalists patronize American Indians and
neglect the lessons of their rich institutional heritage
encouraging resource conservation.
