Now, now. That would only hasten glo-bull warming if they were to be burned. LOL! Nice bonfire though.

2MBikers are reporting on their FB page they had people at the memorial all night long and there was no security whatsoever at 8:15 and 8:25 this morning. Pics show there are still barricades up.

Not for long. :)

Barry has definitely stepped in it.
The wire clipping is just the start...

Oboingo can arrange to have every federal monument barricaded shut & securely guarded within just a few days, but he can’t seem to do squat to close the southern border even the slightest bit in 4 1/2 years??

There’s physical proof of where this jerk’s priorities lie.

Update (from the FB page):

POLICE HAVE CLOSED THE FRONT OF THE MEMORIAL **HOWEVER, THEY OPENED THE BACK OF THE MEMORIAL TO ALLOW ONLY THE WWII VETERANS TO ENTER**

THAT IS ALL WE WANTED WAS FOR THEM TO BE ALLOWED INTO “THEIR” MEMORIAL WE THANK THEM FOR ALLOWING THEM TO ENTER

NOTE: They did not arrest our folks (so far) I just got off the phone with them! THEY ALL HAVE MY PERSONAL PHONE # WRITTEN ON THEIR HAND IN CASE ANYONE GETS ARRESTED! WE WILL COME TO THEIR AID IF THIS OCCURS!

The Obozo and his thugs in the outhouse and park service need to realize that if they create/cause a Kent State incident with our vets. All hell on earth will descend on them and the rats in congress for the next decade!

This petty two-year old vindictiveness from our boy President is not going to turn out like he thinks it will.

He’s effed up badly this time.

There’s a business inside the park that uses no federal funds and actully pays the feds, he decided to stay open, Park Police showed up and closed him down.

In other words, it’s all about the visuals.

Barry was afraid it would look bad to be dragging off elderly vets, but he didn’t want them to be seen entering through the front.

Sometimes I wonder if I can despise him any more than I do.

That would be premeditated and well planned priorities.

He spent much effort and precious funds planning the shutdown

What about the families of those who served in WWII who want to visit the memorial to honor the service and sacrifice of their loved ones?

I can’t imagine any other country in the world closing off a war memorial. This is despicable.

Have you all noticed that the barrycades are all painted black? Scary rifle black! Previously, in America, barricades were their natural galvanized metal pipe color. Now, someone has wasted our good money on painting those barrycades black. Very strange.

Yeah I don’t get it. It’s an open-air memorial. It shouldn’t be closed to ANYONE.

But I’m not there, so it’s not my call.

Nice, but how about the House do their real jobs and follow regular order:
1) pass “clean” CRs for Defense, State, and Interior, as they always do
2) pass the rest without 0bamacare
3) leave DC

Apparently there’s some tension about the barricades. The person who runs the 2MBiker site is begging people to be satisfied with the police letting the Vets in the back (this day is about them not the bikers he says)...but even on the FB page there’s strong disagreement with that and it seems some people are moving the barricades anyway. The site owner is saying people are “defying orders”...not sure anyone is in a position to order anyone else with this but there it is.

Grab the barf bags folks.

Politico weighs in:

http://www.politico.com/story/2013/10/government-shutdown-wwii-memorial-97875.html

And I quote: ‘“It was really disturbing to see congressmen out here grandstanding, using this as a political device when it was in fact Congress — the House — that was responsible for the shutdown,” said Dave Smith, a furloughed EPA employee who was visiting the memorial Friday.’

Uh....Dave you freaking genius. The memorial was officially CLOSED on Friday. WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU DOING VISITING IT AND THEN COMPLAINING ABOUT THE GRANDSTANDING THAT LET YOU IN THE DAMN THING????

My goodness these lying swine.

Politico weighs in:

It would seem that the DNC has issued its orders and Politico can only find spectators who HATE the political grandstanding.

QUERY Would the Vets have gotten in from the Honor Flights WITHOUT the clout exercised by elected officials who are REPRESENTATIVES? Just asking...

Sorry no luck, best I could do was from the Washington monument looking the other way and a spider filled view of the Jefferson Memorial.

If a Republican president ever tried to close down an open air memorial, the media would ridicule them for their stupidity.

I would hope you would take your wire cutters and sever the bindings, swing open the barrier, and let the faithful pass.

The Park service doesn’t dare stop you.

All it takes is one person
