Just a clarification; congress had nothing to do with shutting down the open air monuments. There is nothing about the shutdown itself that requires additional money and resources be used to create barriers where there were no barriers before. It is not even a safety issue, because the police have not been furloughed. The shutdown of th eopen air monuments was done solely by the administration for cheap political propaganda.
Posse Commitatus wouldn't apply. It would be a National Guard unit, controlled by the state, not the feds. A lot of states use national guard help for police actions, particular for going after drug growers in the mountains. The ROE is agood point, and given that it is Chicago I would say yes, they probably will be so restictive it will just get the guardsmen killed. Given the state of these inner cities, it would probably be more productive to just carpet the bomb the whole thing and start over. Worked great for post WWII Germany and Japan...
All part of the Republican's War on Women... or something
Your shotgun comment is the funniest thing I've read today. Thanks for the smile. Now I'm going to go grieve the loss of my country...
Well, add restaurants to the list of places that can be robbed with impunity...
Does anybody really believe that if a REPUBLICAN congress gives the president authority to wage war in Syria, and then he has to send in ground troops when things get out of hand (as they always do) that the Congress will have any moral authority to impeach him over it? McCain needs to stop using or start sharing...
Relieved of his duties!

Because Obama is not interested in sending a message or fixing anything. After years of fighting in Syria, and chemical weapons reportedly used months ago, why is it only now that we must act immediately? Think about it. How much discussion about Benghazi, the IRS, NSA, etc, have you heard since this conversation started? A quick and decisive strike would leave little to talk about, which would put the other scandals back in the limelight. Obama needs this distraction right now, and McCain and the other idiot RINOs are more than happy to be his lapdogs.
Good. The man's a disgrace. He has squandered his opportunities for principled resistance, and caves to Obama constantly. His recent willingness to be Obama's fall-guy for the Syria fiasco is further evidence. We need a leader who is willing to stand up to the statists.
And do you believe a black photographer should be made to attend a Klan rally if hired?
Incorrect. They were not refusing service because the people involved were gay. The businesses refused service because it was requested for a specific objectionable event. It would be one thing for a bakery to refuse to serve a muffin to somebody because they were gay. It is entirely different to force that business to create a cake for the purpose of celebrating a ceremony which directly contradicts the religious beliefs fo the business owner. This is the key distinction being lost here. It is not discrimination against a person, it is refusal to honor an objecitonable ceremony.
