How To Scare the Crap Out of Randy

Army Combat Unit to deploy within the U.S.

What. The. Fuck.

Posse Comitatus, anyone? We don't *do* this shit here. You don't put over 4,000 members of your military, who are *trained* to *kill people*, into a domestic law enforcement role. The DOD can say all they want that they're a response unit for hurricane relief, but... what are they going to do? Shoot at the hurricane? This isn't a civil engineer brigade, this is a combat-trained and tested brigade that has seen action in Iraq.

Seriously, this is one of those "We should have known we were in for a totalitarian regime when they started up with the domestic combat units" kind of things.

Can anyone remember the last time our government did something that didn't scare you or piss you off, or both?

W just hates the National Guard, doesn't he? Won't show up for duty, happily sends them overseas, and now he's giving their job away.
