  • The Policification of the National Guard

    Under Governor Perry of Texas, the National Guard may acquire powers to arrest.

    While I have expressed concern about the militarization of our Police Departments, this looks like the Policification of our Military.

    (wiki: The Posse Comitatus Act is the United States federal law (18 U.S.C. § 1385, original at 20 Stat. 152) that was passed on June 18, 1878, after the end of Reconstruction and was updated in 1981. Its intent (in concert with the Insurrection Act of 1807) was to limit the powers of Federal government in using federal military personnel to enforce the state laws.)

    Yes, Rick Perry – the man who vetoed a ban on the execution of mentally retarded convicts.
    This story reminds me of a Jimmy Bond quote (while having dinner with Doctor No) – “Tell me, does the toppling of American missiles really compensate for having no hands?”
    I wonder what Rick Perry is trying to compensate for.

      If you and your party of traitors weren't conspiring to flood the south with third world refuse this would be unnecessary. But since Chocolate Jesus won't do his job Perry has to take drastic measures to protect his state.

        Unfortunately, I'm thinking Obama has given Perry little other choice in this matter -- other than to totally repurpose the DPS, or deputize a whole bunch of....

        Yeah, it's a rather desparate situation.
