    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.

    The Policification of the National Guard

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

    (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.)
