Bring The Boys (And Girls) Back Home

I am unaware of any actual or continuing insurgency that has occurred or is ongoing in DC that would necessitate the continued stationing of our National Guard in our nation's capital.

Indeed, the National Guard could be put to better use in Portland to support the police there to quell the ongoing progressive civil disturbance,(none dare call it an insurgency),  but that's been ruled out apparently.  Funny, that.

On top of the insult to injury to have twenty-five thousand National Guard soldiers taken from their home states and jobs to be stationed in our capital for appearances, there's this:

Redstate: Michigan National Guard Served Undercooked, Moldy Food While in Washington D.C.

That's simply unacceptable and an outrage. 

Yes, heads should darn well roll for whoever in charge gave out and administered that contract (doubly so if any kickbacks or backscratching, or political favors in awarding the contract occurred). The contractors should be fined and jailed for their conduct in foisting such garbage on our troops.

 If you can't properly feed and house the troops -- in peacetime -- in our nation's capital, where there's no actual threat requiring their being stationed there, then in the words of the anti-war left,  Bring the Boys Home. They've been sent there for an unpopular occupation with no end game, victory condition, or date of departure in sight and that's unacceptable. 

Time to bring them all home.

Don't you know we're rioting tomorrow? I don't know why but that's what they say. Personally, I plan on digging out my drainage ditch instead. Much more interesting than going to D.C.

I don't know,Hillbilly, I suspect that you would get about the same amount of muck and crap digging in your ditch or in the DC swamp. At least if you did your drainage ditch you will know that it will take some time before it fills back in again. With DC, it will be refilled almost immediately.
And there can't be a riot tomorrow, the book of face didn't announce it yet.
