** IN YOUR FACE AMERICA **
The EPA better NOT be open!!!!
The Sc#m bag in Chief and his army of flying monkeys are determined to make a shutdown as painful as possible for the American people. The message is “you shut off the funds, we will make your lives miserable”.
He’s going to build up a wall in front of the sun next!
Just make sure you record it.
One thing is for sure: OBAMA HATES THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA !
WW II VETS: Normandy, was also closed we when got there!!!...Hussein Obama...tear down YOUR BARRYcades!!!
Interesting information/data tidbit. The WW II Memorial is PRIVATELY funded. It is an open facility accessible from adjoining sidewalks. How does Hussein Obama closed this facility? By what right?National World War II Memorial ~ WEBSITE ~
The National World War II Memorial was funded almost entirely by private contributions, as specified in Public Law 103-32. The campaign received more than $197 million in cash and pledges. Support came from hundreds of thousands of individual Americans, hundreds of corporations and foundations, veterans groups, dozens of civic, fraternal and professional organizations, states and one territory, and students in 1,200 schools across the country.
Donated and pledged funds were used to cover the total project costs of approximately $182 million. These costs include site selection and design, construction and sculpture, a National Park Service maintenance fee required by the Commemorative Works Act, groundbreaking and dedication ceremonies, fund raising, and the 11-year administrative costs of the project from its inception in 1993 through completion in 2004.
Remaining funds are held on deposit with the U.S. Treasury in a National WWII Memorial Trust Fund. The funds will be used by the American Battle Monuments Commission solely to benefit the World War II Memorial.
Hitler couldn't do it, but a communist kenyan working from within our government apparently can. As an AMERICAN and a VET, I'm ashamed of my government.
Of course, like so many other things, it's kind of security theater. If you had a small band of thugs, well armed, you could sneak up on the building from a half dozen angles and take those guys out in 60 seconds or less.
There is no fence around the cemetery itself. There is only security in the visitor's center. So I'm not exactly sure what they've "shut down" unless it's the visitor's center.
Welcome to the Democratic Party
Agitation is the only thing community agitators know how to do.
I wonder how the Anti Birther Obama Supporters in the GOP and GOP Talk Radio feel now? You folks were the ones attacking Birthers. Look what’s happening now?
We have something’s we don’t like in the closing, but overall this is good. Leave it alone or you will give the tense sitters a reason to reopen the government with Obamacare.
An earlier thread pointed out that we’re still paying these buff frogs, like ‘furloughed’ federal workers. (laid-off is too blue-collar?)
So everyone on the feral dole gets some downtime because some native Americans—like Pootie Poot—refuse to kneel before pResident Xerxes.
Nothing surprises me. It might be unbelievable, but nothing surprises me ever since the Clintoons were in the WH.
“Leave it alone...”
No, broadcast it. It shows what a crybaby Obama is, and it is very offensive to millions of Americans.
you have to understand, this cemetery represents a free people fighting for a land of liberty against a Nazi dictatorship
exactly opposite to everything our current administration stands for, believes in
