You guys need to realize that just because they purchased them, doesn't mean they purchased them RECENTLY.
Some of you are acting like they just went out yesterday to buy up all the stock. I would fully expect for the government to have stocks of these pills...it would be irresponsible for them not to.
So you might think, well why is the website showing that they purchased them....because they are trying to SELL them. And if you see that the government is stocking up on them...then you will want to stock up on them too.
Why so many?
Why didn't they show HOW MANY FEMA bought? or the US NAVY and ARMY?
and the POST OFFICE??????
You don't think this is strange??
