Local organization finds way to allow visitors to experience memorial

"It's sad. A lot of people are coming over and expressing their disappointment on not being able to view the memorial or walk on it," said Mike Carr, president and COO of the USS Missouri Memorial Association.

I have received word from the U.S. Marine Band (The President’s Own)that they’ve cancelled their whole Midwest Tour, due to Sequestration, and cancelled several local D.C. area concerts, due to the government shutdown.

Maybe they could go serenade the President until he turns himself in to the authorities. Something similar worked on Noriega in Panama ...

The National Cemeteries are being affected as well. Families with activities at the national Cemetery of the Pacific Punchbowl are being denied access otthe services of the cemetery.

I'll be glad to do it. Look at the picture on my homepage.

Blue Angels and Thunderbirds are all cancelled. My dad was a WWII vet. The Arizona, WWII memorial in Washington, all this crap better stop.

That would be news, since it's been on the ocean floor for the last 70 years.

Now the USS Arizona Memorial, that's another kettle of fish.

It's not going to stop. The Republicans are getting all the blame. The "Republicans" on Meet the Press agreed it was their fault. As of one week in, the Rats and Obastard are winning this.

“I have received word from the U.S. Marine Band (The President’s Own)that they’ve cancelled their whole Midwest Tour, due to Sequestration, and cancelled several local D.C. area concerts, due to the government shutdown.”

They get paid just as much sitting in the barracks as they would to march to somewhere in D.C., play and then march back. Or in D.C. is traveling on foot and unarmed to dangerous?

The signs and the Barry-cades all had to be pre-made, and pre-positioned for use.

That alone says the shutdown was a foregone conclusion (IOW, scripted).

This does not bode well for Obama. The USS Arizona Memorial is the closest thing America has to truly sacred ground. It is as serious or even more serious than the Vietnam Memorial.

For him to order these places closed for petty political reasons, because he is having a temper tantrum, will create generations of people that will despise him. And hopefully to despise his vindictive political party as well.

Didn't mean to hijack your thread, and I agree about when were the signs printed, but just all this, USS Arizona, Marine Band, it's all Obama spitting in everybody's face.

And I don't particularly care to be treated that way.

“I don’t particularly care to be treated that way.”

Me either. But are we going to actually DO anything about it? Doesn’t look like it. A few random acts of civil disobedience by a few 90-year-olds, and short-lived refusals to comply by a few small businesses just aren’t going to cut it. Irate blog comments by a handful won’t either. Most Americans either agree with Zero that it’s the fault of the evil, stupid Republicans, or they just don’t care.

How about Relax by Frankie Goes to Hollywood or It's Raining Men by the Weathergirls. Maybe a little Judy Garland...

But I'm sure Obama would like that.

The next time a liberal asks how we know that the federal government is too big, just explain that it is so big that shutting it down makes it impossible for people to view a sunken ship to memorialize those who died in service to their country.

To my way of thinking, that is too big. I would shrink the federal government without mercy until Congress votes unanimously and the President signs an act to restore full control of the Pearl Harbor Memorial to the state of Hawaii.

Let's not forget that Veteran's Day (Memorial Day) will be coming up soon!

Will Der Fuhrer Hussein have all the national war and veterans' monuments here and abroad still closed down if the shutdown is still going on?

I secretly hope the shutdown continues up-to-and-including that sacred day. I know, I'm baaaaad. But what a perfect day for a pushback of some kind all across the fruited plain!

Probably right after the election in 2008. Socialists plan FAR in advance.

As for opening the Arizona, there are lot's of dems in Hawaii. Dem business people must be ticked that the tourists are cranky so they pressured obama.

Another front to battle on is the end of the pow to the proclamations of Executive Orders by the Office of the President in the manner we have been seeing during the past century versus the present Obama regime.

The shame of all this is that most of these memorials are for events that happened way before the liberals gained control of education...To those of us who served, Vietnam myself, WWII for my Dad, these places are hallowed...For kids today, a lot of them who could apply pressure to Obama, it would probably make them angrier if Obama shut down X-Box or video games and the internet....

I imagine he's still writing checks to our enemies. The only way to give the finger to the man on the streets is to shut down his streets. Shutting down the real government in DC and all those gov agencies wouldn't do much to bother the man on the street.

So it’s not safe for our Marines to walk the streets of D.C.? When I was a kid growing up there in the 50’s and early 60’s you could go anywhere in D.C. and be safe.

That was hysterical! I loved the guy saying, “Ain’t gawn le’ you go!”

Much better than my son playing it on the ukulele, although that’s actually not bad, if he doesn’t flake out partway through. He doesn’t sing, though.

Despite shutdown, USS Arizona to reopen... kind of

Interesting headline. The Arizona herself, not the memorial.

The Eretz Ziona (the land toward Zion)

Remember the number (of lives lost). It's 1177. It's one of those obscure mnemonics from the numeric value of the phrase in bold:

Dan 9. 2. In the first year of his reign, I, Daniel, perceived in the books the number of years, which, according to the word of the Lord that came to Jeremiah the prophet, must pass before the end of the desolations of Jerusalem; seventy years:

(A reference to Jer 29.10)

Jerusalem (Zion) is an allegory for America.

Tears of the Arizona allusion:

Psalm 137.1

By the rivers of Babylon, there we sat down, we also wept, when we remembered Zion:

Oil leaking from the sunken battleship can still be seen rising from the wreckage to the surface of the water. This oil is sometimes referred to as "the tears of the Arizona"[9][10] or "black tears."[11]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Arizona_Memorial

From post 16:

The USS Arizona Memorial is the closest thing America has to truly sacred ground. It is as serious or even more serious than the Vietnam Memorial.

Tears cry from the ground (or ship "of state" as it were).

Jer 31.9. Hear the word of the Lord, O you nations, and declare it in the islands far away, and say, He who scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, like a shepherd keeps his flock:

This stuff adds up over time. In these days, no detail is insignificant.
