So, some goldbug site reports that his sister's cousin's mother's boyfriend went to Wal-Mart and tried to buy some .22, and the computer told the cashier that they were out of ammo and wouldn't be ordering any more. And the cashier called the CEO right there from the register, and it was totally true!
And this story got picked up by CNS.com, which as a verifiably true source generally ranks somewhere between PrisonPlanet.com and Debka Files. And then Rush Limbaugh, demonstrating by his many layers of oversight that he is as Main Stream as any other Media, repeated it on the air...
...and my inbox, as well as every gun forum on the internet, blew up. zomg! WALMART ISN'T SELLING AMMO ANYMORE!!1!eleventy!
And it took World Net Daily, of all outlets, to actually pick up the phone and, you know, call Wal-Mart to find out if it was true.
Does nobody think that if the administration had arm-twisted Wal-Mart into discontinuing ammo sales, the first person you'd hear it from wouldn't be a cashier in the sporting goods department, but rather Barry O. himself, doing some nerdy student government brainiac version of a sack dance behind the podium in the White House Briefing Room?
