Fully Engaged and Outraged
http://www.may4.org/ This link discusses a prior deployment of the Ohio State National Guard units in the Kent State massacre of May 1970. I lived through those days as a student in college. It was an ugly time for the country. It was outrageous behavior for a guard unit then. Police should have been the ones dealing with the student strikes. But gutless James Rhodes, then Governor of the State of Ohio, thought it was a good idea at the time to look tough. Someone needs to start paying attention to history, to psychology, to mental health, to fiscal responsibility, to the Constitution, to the real Bottom Line for America today.
