Trump should make a point to go around and shake hands, and do a little hearts and minds.  Optics won't look so good for the dems if he's hamming it up with them, might make them sweat a little.

This is what soldiers sitting around looks like.

Want them out doing patrols?  Riiight, that will look good.
Calm down
No.

I am tired of the NG getting treated like trash by the politicians and then holier-than-thou attitudes by people like you, when the NG has no real choice about going and sitting around somewhere like that, or in going and doing the things they are called to do.  Are there instances where they screw up?  More than you know!

These soldiers are there making the best of the situation that has been handed to them.  Suck it up, this is what ALL soldiers will look like.

Exactly. I'm not downing Guardsmen. I'm downing the system that has them there. I'm aware they have no choice.

I'm about two rows down and three columns left out of frame.

Not kidding. They got us up at like 0300, and we were there by 0400 for a 0800 speech. IIRC, my roommate and I stayed up all night.

They should have a place out of the way to go rest. Failure of leadership here.

well, if they are housed outside the Capitol building, then they aren't there to either protect Congress or give Congress the photo op they want, namely "We had to turn the US CAPITOL into an ARMED CAMP to protect us from the MAGAts!!!!"

@JAG2955

I was probably a few rows up and to the left.  Pretty sure @Jenzilla was barely out of frame in this one. Jen, weren't those your peeps?

My roomies and I ran a mission out into town the night before with some young'ns. They had closed off the Ho Chi Minh trail that night so we had to walk right by Alumni Hall. We elected to do so on the street with flashlights in full view of the snipers instead of sneaking through.

We got back to our rooms at like 0200 and were fucking exhausted.  Good times!

You must have MAGICAL abilities to be able to discern the physical condition of soldiers based entirely on a couple of photographs of them sitting around, sleeping, and waiting for something to happen.

ACA and the KSM.    

The KSM is a super rare medal that politicians make you wear proudly to every function when you are awarded it even though you will want to pitch it in the trash for the rest of your days.  

The Kent State Marksmanship award is so rare because they don’t usually award it when people that remember the last time they handed them out are still in charge.

It’s only when we forget...
