    Democrat Ted Kulongoski of Oregon said Guardsmen signed up to fight the war on terror, not to "go and sit on the border of Mexico." And with fire season approaching, he said, "I need our remaining National Guard soldiers to stay in Oregon to protect our forests."

    Look, asshole - you can't have it both ways. Why don't we just say that Guardsmen signed up to protect their country and their home state - in whatever manner the brass tells them to, mm'k?

    It can't be completely without merit, then. I tend to judge an idea by its enemies; it's proven deadly accurate so far!

    The idea that our military and/or National Guard can't be spared isn't so much laughable as it is INFURIATING. The goddamn trees and squirrels will be fine, Ted. Right now, we've got about 80 illiterate Mexicans an hour pouring into our country and destroying it from the inside. Get a clue.

    There is only one reason to object to putting the troops on the border, and that is if you want to see American destroyed.

    Well said, WJ.

    And, as for President Bush, I didn't watch his speech. I don't even hear this man anymore. I don't think he respects us or thinks like us. He's a one-worlder and a bullshit artist. If it comforts him to think he's lulled America to sleep, or tossed our ignorant asses a bone, so be it.

    It's Congress I'll be watching.

    Um its the National Guard. The whole point of the National Guard is to *Gasp* guard the nation.. To think the national guard isnt serving its purpose by defending our borders is absurd.

    As for the Presidents address. I think he addressed the issue adequately. The question is whether it was just rhetoric or we are actually going to enforce this.

    IF, the National Guard is deployed by border states at the state level, it is completely without merit, since defending their state is EXACTLY what National Guardsmen sign up for.

    Claiming they signed up to fight the "War on Terror" is bullshit. They could join the regular Army or the any of the reserves, which are Federal, if that was their goal.

    Nicely put, Avatar. And, I'm always one to root for a happy outcome. It could be that our boys have just been napping, and needed a bit of gentle prodding on this issue. Maybe they'll do the right thing here. You know what they say - a pessimist only gets PLEASANT surprises; I could sure use one right about now!
