.........I totally agree too! These guys should be treated with reverence!
So it does cost taxpayers more to keep WW2 vets away from the WW2 memorial.I thought they might have to pay a multitute of gov. employees to man a booth where WW2 vets had to buy their permit to look at the WW2 memorial.
Was the “honor” flight of 80 year old veterans gate raped by the TSA?
asked for guidance on how to respond to the breach of security.”
I bet they will have the dogs out and fully loaded M4’s with those Hollow Point training rounds in 30 round magazine’s.
Tazers at the ready!
Teach those old geezers to storm the memorial. Terrorists!
Obama was probably hoping for a photo-op, showing the wheelchair-bound WW II vets sadly stopped at the shuttered gate. Does anyone know if the media was there today, or are these all private photos? I’m guessing that if they were there, the media, once they witnessed the (gasp!) civil disobedience, slunk away in horror, hoping to bury the story.
If there was a request made for temporary volunteer caretakers for these monuments and parks, there would be an outpouring of support from the public. These are the people’s parks. Not the politicians. With such volunteerism There would be no vandalism.
All we need is leadership that is willing to provide a method for volunteers to help. All of these Americans and foreigners that then had planned vacations to attend the parks could be handled. If only we had leadership and foresight from both Parties. Instead the only thing they want is to get reelected.
Probably Same trick as with the sequester.
Try it yourself then.
Evil ploy by Obama and his enablers i.e. using government employees to close a public financed memorial. Being a vet of WWII with service in the Pacific just another notch against the bunch. To make matters even more disgusting for me is that my brothers name, killed on Okinawa, is kept from a person like myself who donated funding for the Memorial only to find that someone like Obama, a coward from military service’ can be given authority to block me from paying respects at any time. I hope that all vets of WWII will see this as a crass use of authority from a joint smoking draft dodger provided he was a USA citizen.
For those of you who would like to experience this vicariously, buy or rent this:
It's a must see!!
I’m saying that something provoked that kind of response and asked you to tell the whole story. Thanks.
Good for these brave military me.
Democrats are mean, spiteful, little pricks.
How many vets will pass who planned to visit? All because of a tantrum by Obama and other democrats.
They will probably be punished.
I hope not. Their respectfulness to elderly veterans should be rewarded. But as you indicated, no good deed goes unpunished.
If I could be there, as G-d is my Witness, I would be. Damn the torpedoes and full speed ahead!
How will they be punished? By taking away their AARP cards?
