Lawmakers on Capitol Hill do not seem any closer to an agreement that would end the government shutdown.
On Tuesday, when veterans came to the World War II Memorial only to discover it had been barricaded because of the shutdown, they moved the blockade, then continued on to pay their respects.
But the memorial is a federal site in a public space. According to the National World War II Memorial website, "The memorial is operated by the National Park Service and is open to visitors 24 hours a day, seven days a week."
Why was there a need for barricades in the first place?
"Park Service did not want to barricade these, but unfortunately we have been directed, because of the lack of appropriations ...

Pure **** ****
Because this is how stupid and petty their much ballyhooed “government” is.
Obama is playing games. This is why he wanted a shutdown. He is a worthless boy.
Spot on! Go WWII vets! Still kicking a$$ after all these years!
I imagine the Marxist dictator directed it. That’s the way dictators are. Flippin’ pigs.
Commie theater. As another freeper noticed on another thread, the “closed to to government shutdown” signs looked professionally made... like they anticipated this weeks in advance.
Another one of Obama’s acts of defiance against America, the Audacity of Hope and Change (to socialism)
Time to wake up the youth.
I’m not sure if park service guards are on duty or not, but the truth is these monuments could very easily be vandalized. It’s been happening.
“Audacity” is the keyword.
Revenge! Revenge! MAKE IT HURT!
Men? Todd Palin is a man. Ted Cruz is a man. ohaha and dingy hairy? Not even close.
To make people suffer in as many ways as possible and blame Republicans.
