My thoughts; as much as a Twinkie can have a thought, that is:
Obama came out right at the start declaring that he intended to have a “civilian security force as powerful, as well funded as the military”. - It went over like a lead balloon; people, including Twinkie, asked, “don’t we already have a National Guard?”
That comment got lost in the Obama deluge of comments over the past 3 or 4 years, and the idea was dropped. We thought . . until now, that is.
Some of us remember, Mmmmm Mmmmm Mmmmm.
