Probably a stupid question,but here goes.

I've been hearing in various places that US combat troops are being deployed on our streets in certain places.why?isn't this against Posse comitatus?

I don't trust radioheads and bloggers,but its interesting enough to me to ask,I think I'd trust you guys a lot more than them,so what's up?

If anything.:rolleyes:

Having forces ready to help out in a time of need can be a good thing. Having forces ready to take up arms against citizens with out a lawful order is a bad thing. Keeping the peace after a natural disaster is something that the National Gaurd has always been used for however the State Gaurd would be a better option in my opinion.

9/11 and Katrina both taught us that the government cannot be everywhere all the time (and they shouldn't be.)

You have to be prepared for yourself.
