setting here reading on the internet with the tv on the news in the other
room. hear talking about taking the National Guard out of the states control and put them under federal control. There is no doubt that they, crawford coward and co* are fixen to spring something big on us.
These vile bastards have something up their sleeves with a whole lot to loose. I get more worried with each new story. I can't turn it off or turn away, i don't want to be caught by surprise. Wouldn't run even if i could, to much family to not take a stand. Plus it is just by gawd wrong what they are doing.

1. WTF?
I have not heard about this. I was trying to stay a little less engaged today since this morning I almost had a panic attack thinking about all of this mess (I have never in my life felt like that before).

Good grief.

2. This is getting interesting....they are losing control and now..
they are going to attempt to make the ultimate power grab....

The states won't let them pull the guard out of their own states...

What about the guard and military abroad.....

They think that the gun owners are going to turn over their guns when they ask for them?

There is going to be civil war in this country!! and the * cabal is the minority.....

Thank God the LA Governer fought the * cabal and did not give up control of her state!! This might have been the most important stand against these criminals!!

5. I think it is. If she hadn't stood firm it would have be used as a
model for the other states. I just see evil coming out of this whitehouse, sadly. They are too deep into the doo-doo, commited too many crimes to ever be not in the power. I got a feeling we are fixen to see what marshall law is going to be like. I wouldn't doubt they don't tell us shortly that they have decided to, in order to save our country, suspend our constitution. i be very worried

3. they tried to take advantage of Katrina to do this, but Blanco wouldn't
now they have to sneak it in some other way--

They need their dictatorship to keep from going to jail after NOV, if the elections fix fails.

8. The circumstances surrounding Bush's attempt to take over the LA...
...National Guard were staggering.

Junior's people told Blanco that Junior was going live, in a news conference, to announce
that he had "Federalized" the LA National Guard. His strategy was to say, "Ok, things
aren't going well, but now the calvary is here, and we're going to get things done!"

Blanco was totally strong armed and manipulated into caving.

She didn't.

We owe her a debt of gratitude.

Interesting---that Bush didn't attempt this in Mississippi. Isn't Haley Barbour the Rep governor? It would seem more likely that a Bush-friendly politician would give Junior these power.

Maybe, Bush thought Blanco (a woman) was an easy target--easily manipulated.

I guess Junior and Company found out that they were wrong.

It's pretty scary that the only thing standing between these thugs and our freedom--is sometimes a strong, Democratic governor.

Panel to study role of National Guard, reserves

By Otto Kreisher
COPLEY NEWS SERVICE

3:54 p.m. March 6, 2006

WASHINGTON A congressionally mandated commission began Monday to study how the National Guard and reserves should be structured, trained and equipped to meet the nation's increasing reliance on them to fight the war on terror at home and abroad and to respond to natural disasters.

A number of governors have complained that the heavy use of their Guard troops and equipment have robbed them of the ability to respond to emergencies at home.

When Katrina hit, a large percentage of the Louisiana and Mississippi Guard force were deployed and those at home were short of heavy equipment and vehicles. The two states' governors also clashed with the Pentagon and the White House over who commanded their Guard personnel activated for the Katrina relief effort.

All those issues will be studied, said Arnold Punaro, the panel's chair.

The commission will conduct a comprehensive, year-long examination of how this nation has been using and should be using the National Guard and reserve, he added.

No subject affecting the Guard and reserves will be outside the commission's purview, including the touchy issues of whether federal or state officials should control Guard troops called up for domestic service and the applicability of the post-Civil War Posse Comitatus law that limits the active military's law enforcement role inside the United States, Punaro said.

6. Civil war? And I don't mean in Iraq.
There could be a big power struggle on the horizon. Too many GOP politicos have begun to believe their own propaganda, their own lies. They may really believe they can pull a power grab off, if they do it now.

Halliburton has been mentioned as a possible alternative to DPW's control of the ports. How chilling is that?
