He gets his own army paid for by the feds. He probably loves it.

I would not turn my back on that army, if I were one of those Governors...

It sounds like the US Army is telling King Gavin where to shove it right now, from what I have heard.

What happens when Federalized, is the Governor loses operational control and the President gains operational control.

Edited to add:
I just remembered, that was why the National Guard was Federalized at Little Rock when the schools were being desegregated. Took control of the National Guard away from the Governor.

At this point, I would prefer the Governor of Texas to keep control of the Texas National Guard. Mainly because I think he would have a better hand on needs of the state than some one Federal would.

I think that a lot of National Guard troops have been to combat zones thus they are experienced in combat situations...If they say stop its best to stop..Looks like things have started to turn serious..
