    I was responding to this one:

    "Now a CBRNE event could certainly overwhelm the capabilities of local law enforcement and first responders.  But if there is a need for a dedicated force to respond to such an event that force should be civilian. "

    I don't disagree that using the military for domestic drug enforcement is stepping over the none-too-clear line of the Posse Comitatus Act.  

    I never get tired of saying that I went to law school with Eric Cantor, and he was as much of a deeply closeted scumbag then, as he is now.
