Agreed.  This is photo op/propaganda.  Nothing more, nothing less.  Think they'll be more or less likely to become voters for the party that's predominantly pushing this scam?

There probably just isn’t enough space available for that since several thousand of them are in the area.

I believe that they will want to take advantage of the thousands of National Guardsmen and other forces in place in Washington DC (along with the barricades around DC) as protection for when they actually do vote on an AWB.

I believe they will do the following:

1.) Bill is introduced in the morning of 21 January, the day after Xiden's inauguration.

2.) Bill is released by judiciary committee later that day (they've already sent it to the people they've chosen to chair the committees)

3.) Bill is put on the calendar to be voted on that night, and moves to the Senate, where it's fast tracked the next day.

4.) Within about 48 hours, the bill is on Xiden's desk for him to sign, around 22 to 23 January.

It might actually move so fast that the bill is signed BEFORE the text appears on Congress.gov

During Rodney King riots, we slept on concrete floors in a warehouse. I used my protective mask for a pillow. We spent ten days doing this. Sadly, there were barracks that could have housed us less than a mile away.

Amazing how the officers had cots brought in.

They'll end up being quartered in some apartment complex or hotel and being bussed to the Capitol for every shift change.

The only thing that would make this better would be for an entire housing complex to be forced empty to make room for the GI's.  They're shitting on the 1st and 2nd amendments so might as well tear up the 3rd too.

NG troops not having any ammo/mags issued is pretty common.  Throw on top that multiple members of Congress have publicly voiced concern over Guardsman being “sympathetic” to “domestic terrorists” and I’d seriously doubt they’ll be issued ammo at any point leading up to and through the inauguration.

I'd love to be a fly on the wall around some of their discussions.  I'm really hoping that many of them feel that way (embarrassed, and unsure about being there), and so they are affecting a lazy, sleepy posture to indicate their disdain for the duty.

Yeah, definitely no argument from me on how troops with nothing to do are going to be laying down/around.  However, the imagery and picture selections are definitely trying to tell some story. But whether it's NG or just the photog, there's an obvious choice to show them as nonthreatening at possible.  

I would have assumed we'd see pictures of them kitted up, on high alert and ready to beat down, if the intention was to showcase serious Capitol security.

There are tons of other government buildings in the area they could go to and get a little more comfortable. The idea that they need thousands of bodies in the building in case the barbarians attack is ludicrous.
