I will never forgive those who voted for this miserable excuse for an executive

The demoCRAP Party is the 2013 version of the Copperhead party of 1864.

....anything that has to do with AMERICAN history is being attacked and taken away from the American citizenship. The little boy king wants the average blue collar working Joe to suffer BECAUSE OF HIS FAILURES. WATCH FOR THE insistence that OBAMAcare be dropped and the ACA ( Affordable Care Act)become the official name for the train wreck.

Obama and Reid are the ones CLOSING DOWN THESE SITES, NOT the Republicans. It’s VINDICTIVE and EVIL.....that’s what Dems are all about.

I hate to see it but I kind of agree with closing the park during the shutdown. For the following reasons.....

1) all park offices and museums are closed.
2) no maintenance staff is available to pick up garbage etc.
3) regular ranger staff are likely furloughed
4) law enforcement rangers are on duty but now have additional patrol duties due to closures
5) Gettysburg has had alot of vandalism recently to monuments etc.

There is a certain element of person that goes to our parks to cause trouble and destruction. it is a growing problem even at Gettysburg where there have been several major vandalism incidents over the last few years. Even though 99.9% of visitors are problem free patriotic citizens, the furloughing of ranger staff does present a golden opportunity for those who wish to cause mischief.

The national cemetery at Gettysburg was only for the Union dead (although apparently a handful of Confederates were buried there because they were mistaken for Union dead). Most of the Confederate dead were later exhumed and sent to various cemeteries in the South, but some were missed and are still buried on the battlefield.

When Lincoln spoke of the "honored dead" in his Gettysburg address, he was referring exclusively to the Union dead.

It's ironic that the park is closed because of Obama's determination that there be no delay in extending federal government control over our lives--to a degree unimaginable to Washington, Jefferson, Madison, or Lincoln.
