It is. It’s just that we have lots of gutless people here that live vicariously through the effort of people that stick their necks out. When their work wins the day, they want in on the credit.

When it get a little rough, then they wet their pants and waste our time whining about how “it’s over”. They are also constantly looking to the MSM to verify our political philosophy as if that’s what this is all about.

He kinda looks like someone...can’t quite place who...a Senator or someone.

God bless both of these courageous men.

Not even on National Review Online.

This is NOT Bill Buckley's NR. He's spinning in his grave at times.

“...That picture of the injured Vet carrying a “Barrycade” on a Segeway to the “Spitehouse” will be an iconic photo in the future....”

YES!
It will become just like the one of the naked little girl running from the firefight in Vietnam.
Just like the lone man standing in front of the Chinese Tank in the square.
And the lamestream media refuses to show it, but it will NOT hold it back.
It WILL get out.

HOW could any government of America ever bring a Veteran to this? There is no excuse, there is no explanation.
Absolutely shameful of our country that we are not ALL outraged and in uproar!

Praise to this young man for his courage and his dedication. His actions should shame all those who allowed this travesty of Barrycades to even be put up!

I want back to look again and reread the early comments of other confused people. That comma was added later, after people were replying with “??????” and otherwise indicating they were as confused as I was.

Good. I’m not illiterate. (Whew!) Lol.

I’ll bet it took 5 NPS workers to put that Barrycade up. Two to carry it and three to supervise the “operation”.

The Mighty Democrat Senator “No Debate” Reid has spoken though his use of raw Park Police Power by an incompetent, spendaholic, Democrat Administration: Release the floodgates of continuous increased Federal Spending or we will lower the BARRYCADE IRON CURTAIN until you cave in.

In this way Reid and Obama have defined for America what continued control of the US Senate and the Administration will be like in the future.

Each section of the BARRYCADE IRON CURTAIN is a visual testament to the abject failure of the Obama-Reid Adminstration and Senate.

There should be no doubt, except for the true believers in the Liberal “Mainstream” Media, that Democrats do not have the ability to operate, oversee, or manage a Government “- - - of the people, for the people, and by the people.”

Senator Reid has failed to produce a Federal Budget for five disgraceful years in a row. He thus in the most incompetent Majority Leader of the US Senate, ever.

The simple fact that Senate Democrats have chosen to keep Senator Reid as their Majority Leader can only be interpreted that the majority of US Senate Democrats do not have the ability to operate, oversee, or manage the US Federal Government.
