Lets think about this for one little second and apply some rational thought.
Ok #1 generally, when the government purchases somethin how does it do it?
The government contracts a certian amount of product at the lowest possible price it can get it at.
It places the order, and upon delivery the company bills the government, is eventually paid, and then provides a nice little kickback for the Senator that arranges it. It leaves it sit around for a few decades, then sells it as surplus.
#2 What does FEMA do? Disaster preparedness? yes? And what usually is the result of any disaster? happy little hipies running and frolicking in the woods? NO! dead freakin bodies! The same thing that occurs with any disaster that the FEMA has to prepare for.
#3 with all the talk of terrorism, biological warfare, and WMDs, what kind of disasters should the CDC and FEMA be preparign for?
Biological terrorism maybe? Now in a large scale biological terroist attack, what would be present in the aftermath? happy little hipies running and frolicking in the woods? NO! Dead Freakin bodies! The same thing that occurs in any disaster!
#4 Will the government pay $500 a piece for them buying them in the dozens? Don't expect our government to do that. For one it wouldn't be being prepared and two it wouldn' give abig kickback to anyone.
They will buy a huge amount at a fraction of that price.
if they are going to start rounding people up and killing them they aren't going to bother buring anyone individually. It would be mass graves that are cheap to dig and cheap to fill. No big expensive plastic container required..
