Vets ought to put barriers up at the entrances/exits at the White House/Sarc, sort of.

Just called Senator Kay Hagan (D-NC) to ask why she wasn’t at the WWII Memorial and cutting these ties to allow the vets entrance...Her office is closed and not taking messages...

I then called Richard Burr (R-NC) for the same purpose...His office IS open and gladly took my message...
What does this say about the closure????

I predict that by Monday the wires will be replaced with chains and padlocks.

...and concertina wire. How many ways do spell "despicable?"

Earlier this week, the Washington Post reported that the WW II Memorial would be open to veterans. Call them and tell them their news should be updated.

Citing codes, laws, articles, and sections of theconstitution matter not. Obasterd cares nothing for the rule of law or freedom of conscience his is a lawless rabble. If they want access to the mounument bought and paid for with private funds then pull out the barriers and make a statement.

“...The NPS ultimately answers to US!..”

No, they answer to whoever signs their paychecks, and they’ll do whatever that person tells them to do, for the most part.

A couple hours later, when an Honor Flight of World War II veterans arrived, accompanied by Democratic and Republican members of Congress, the fences blocking the memorial were easily moved away, allowing the veterans to enter.

So even the Weekly Standard has fallen for this lie? There were no Democrats there on Tuesday (there were the next day, a dollar short).

Chris Plante went to the WWII memorial, and while he was there, someone cut the wire with a wire cutter. That was Wednesday afternoon. No telling how many times it has happened since.

A mass demonstration is called for. Conservatives are missing an opportunity. BHO’s Obama’s behavior re: WWii vets and the memorial is a classic example of his true personality. He is a perverse, callous, vindictive, punishing s-b.

This shutdown PR stunt has backfired colossally. It exposes Obama for what he is.

Thanks for sharing that story. I suspect others here similar ones every day and they “don’t want our thanks,only to remember”.

“This thin wire”

This thin wire on the Barrycade looks as thin and small as the small, little, un-patriotic man that ordered it put there.

I just called the news room of the Washington Post. “Tessa” was very interested and asked me for the pic of the wiring. I emailed her the website address of Free Republic post with the pic. Okay, everybody be polite with your posts. You might be watched!

Indeed, looks like it's very easy to cut. I wonder if someone was ordered to wire them together and just for spite used the thinnest wire he could find.

There are soldiers who climbed Suribachi on Iwo Jima carrying flame-throwers, they can probably care a little acetylene if they have to. They’d cut the bands smiling, too. I saw the pictures from Tuesday.

I will believe it when I see it. Tomorrow the same three wires will still be in the same exact place. They will remain there until Obama’s servants remove them.

“I like to be able to GO to D.C.”

I would, too. I wish my Dad was still alive - he went to be with God in 2002. He was a lifer in the Air Force (previously Army Air) and served during WWII, Korea and Viet Nam (was in Cameron Bay). I’d be there in a flash with him and my Step Dad, who served in the Pacific during WWII.

Also wish I could win the lottery, I’d gather up as many Vets as I could from all the wars and fly them to DC to visit the memorials and have a chat with as many Pubbie congresscritters as we could to help keep their knees from getting wobbly. Oh, with a stop at Home Depot to purchase wire snippers ;-)

For heaven's sake, will some Republican go down there and demand, "Mr. Obama, tear down this wall!"

_______________________________________________________

On the plus side, this smacks of desperation, and a perverse and overarching thirst for confrontation, on the part of The Communist.

If so, the president is completely mad. He will get his confrontation, and he will be destroyed. He is living is some kind of Alinsky fantasy land.

There are more things on heaven and earth than are dreamed of in your Alinskian philosophy, Mr. Communist.

Wonder if the WH fed them the storyline so they printed it.
Yes,we must be polite (which FReepers usually are) as the WA Post is one that aligns with the Democrats and the Prez.

Wonder if the WA Times is interested?

“Indeed, looks like it’s very easy to cut. I wonder if someone was ordered to wire them together and just for spite used the thinnest wire he could find.”

Interesting idea! I did read on the 1st day of the Barrycades, that one of the Rangers was a Vet and was looking the other way as the Pubbie congresscritters opened the Barrycades and the Vets and their companions walked through.

Of course,with the sequester and the gov’t slowdown (a.k.a. shutdown), maybe they couldn’t afford a thicker mil of wire ;-)
