    Sorry Govenor. But the devil is in the details. What are the National Guardsmen allowed to do? Or, not do?

    Yeah. Heaven forbid they get paid for guarding the border. They should just get paid to sit at home waiting for to go to some foreign war.

    This is apparently about knee jerk retaliation for an apparently politically well connected person who was killed.
    Not about guarding the border or Richardson would have already had them there doing that.
