ATF hq and $1.1 billion per year

So, let me ask you something. Do YOU think the ATF is worth 1.1 BILLION taxpayer dollars per year? They do.
Jack Booted Thug Central, or, as "Mad Bob" of the Dogtown Rangers calls it, "The Concrete Asshole of the Universe." The new ATF headquarters in DC.

A tip of the boonie hat and my thanks to BPWZ for forwarding this link to the ATF's Congressional Budget Submission for Fiscal Year 2010. Dated May 2009, it asks for a total of $1,120,772,000.00, of which $1,114,772,000.00 is "Direct Salaries and Expenses." Well paid jbt's, ain't they?

They also ask for $616,000.00 as part of Operation Gunrunner "to purchase armored vehicles and tracking devices to ensure the safety of ATF personnel."

Supposedly this is to protect their roidal asses when they cross over the border into Mexico. For the money, this is probably just for up-armored Suburbans, and hey, in a billion-plus dollar budget, what's a mere $616,000.00? Chump change. At least they don't have an Air Force of their own anymore.

Of course with ACORN going around to everybody's houses and plugging in their GPS coordinates (as happened to my mother recently in Marion, Ohio)as an alleged part of "the Census," there's no need for direct personal confrontation any more. Just program a cruise missile or Predator, right? (Pity Herod didn't have that technology at his fingertips when he decided to kill all the new-born babies in his kingdom, huh?)

Note: Be sure and get the name, the complete name, from his/her driver's license, of all ACORN volunteers before you refuse to answer their questions. That way, you have as much information on them as, or more, as they are likely to have on you.

Anyway, enjoy perusing the budget request and justifications of the National Bureau of Jack Booted Thugs. After all, it is your tax dollars at work.

Quite a strategically-made building and surrounding fortifications. Those sorts of things don't exist where people are free.

Damn, there's more fortification on that than there was on army barracks and cop shops in northern Ireland.

Infact, there's more fortifications than Ive seen on African dictators' palaces.

What did Machiavelli say about castles?

Something about "when a Prince has the love of his people, he is better off not building castles, because if he is invaded, he will have the difficulty of re taking them".

There must be some sense of not being loved there

It's typical JBT commander thinking, that a fortress will keep them safe and comfortable.

Truck bomb is so sloppy "-nineties", but the building is designed as anti-truckbomb standoff architecture with a little Romanesque Late Empire thrown in for the rubes.

The "dragons teeth" and Hardened Homes & Gardens planter boxes really invite the public in, don't they? It's almost as charming to the Republic as a chain link fence in front of the lawn at 1600 Pennsylvania.

I'm guessing that the maze around that building contains a multi-array of sensors to detect almost anything as it walks or rolls up. That adds plenty to build and maintenance cost.

Are they going to camp out in there forever? MRE's start to suck after about the 3rd one, even with heater packs. Got water?

I don't think so. There is no-where "safe enough" or far enough away when there are so few friends and new enemies daily.

Don't they know that the future of mass-murder (or "appropriate killing", depending on ones' position on these things) in buildings is using N-B-C's done as an inside job?

The building will be a museum/monument to FedGov excesses in the Nine Nations of North America to come, assuming that there will be anything more than one rock piled on another in DC after the Chinese are done with it.


ps: verification word "bedbang"

Like the J Edgar Hoover Building (FBI HQ), the new F Troop headquarters is defensive design vs. civil disorder.

Don't forget about the ATF Laboratory in Beltsville MD.

The ATF HQ also includes a memorial for the four agents killed at Waco. Contrast that with the humble memorial left by survivors at Mt Carmel (I think their original memorial was eventually dug up). I think there were even memorials for the ATF agents there at Mt Carmel too.

I lived there when this thing was being built.

If I only knew it was F Troops I could have put a nice 'Kiss my Ass' in the concrete while it was still wet.

I hate to ask this but hasn't the threat to buildings gone airborne?

Look at those heavy reinforced concrete columns!

Those bastards don’t care how much money they spend just as long as it’s ours.

All of this for a government agency that shouldn’t even exist.

Well hell Mike you’ve ruined my day

has there ever been a black head of ATF? Obama could set some more precedent here, but it's about power not racial justice for the DNC, as evidenced by this..apparently AG eric holder is sufficient for now..
note the glass palace and memorial for a few agents but none for their genocide victims at Waco, primarily children.

  • The ATF is bullshit. Their whole operation is unconstitutional. Waste of tax payer money.

  • There is such an incredibly massive amount of tax revenue generated by the sales of Aclohol, Tobacco, and Firearms that SOME oversight between the consumers and the coffers is definitely required...but I don't think they even DO they? I see their stamps on my cigarettes and liquor, but other than that....?

    In fact, I cannot recall the last time I saw the ATF doing ANYthing....hmmm....OH YEAH! It was years ago when they managed to kill all those folks in Waco and then AGAIN in Ruby R More..

  • One of the more disturbing aspects of my picture selection is the taxpayer bought granite memorial to 4 atf jbts who probably murdered some of the 50 or so men, women and children before they were gassed with drums of liquid (tear gas concentrate) blown into the compound with a tank barrel, then subsequently burned to death in the fire. This flammable aerosol led to this conflagration. I could go on..they rode around the compound firing m16s into them both from vehicles and helicopters, caught o More..

  • The ATF will need tanks and white phosphorus shells to deal with republican insurgents when these lunatics start their apprehended insurection.

    • The ATF (as well as MOST of the armed agencies our government) are mostly Republicans. Dems want Utopia, and Utopia has no need for guns in the hands of the citizens....and THAT's why they're working so furiously to relieve us of them NOW.

      What's an "apprehended insurrection"?...It sounds like something we need to do in the sandbox across the pond.
