No, Mr. President!

The federal government has taken a lot of heat of its perceived slow response to Katrina emergency. Many do not have a clear understanding of Federal vs. State vs. Local jurisdictions in these cases. It is clearly the responsibility of State and Local governments to handle emergencies. Calling in the Feds when overwhelmed is always an option.

Buried by the left in criticism, "W" is suggesting that the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 be amended to allow immediate Federal action in the case of a natural disaster, terrorist act, or outbreaks of disease. He is asking that "automatic triggers" be built into the law that allows the Feds to act immediately. His words:

"It's very important for us as we look at the lessons of Katrina to think about other scenarios that might require a well-planned, significant federal response -- right off the bat -- to provide stability."

That just all sounds real good, sir, but I respectfully disagree. We have a long standing tradition in this country of keeping the military and civilian situations seperate, and I for one, would like to keep it that way.

The ACLU disagrees as well, and this time (horrors), I have to agree with them.

Mr. President, please, oh please QUIT LISTENING TO THE MOONBATS!
