Maybe we should be preserving Arab dhows or slaveships instead.

Hey Obama, you disgusting self-indulgent vanity -— how about contributing the cost of just ONE of your junket vacations? Or, even, how about having your wide-bodied wife fly back WITH you for a change, and put the cost of her separate flights to good use?

I think with the debt we have, this should be cut, along with about 500 billion of other stuff too.

Plus, it will be more efficiently run with private money.

It’s not the governments job in my book. This should be a privately funded endeavor.

It’s interesting that because of lack of funding they are putting the artifacts “to sleep”, covering them up, turning out the lights and not letting anyone see them.

I would think it would be more effective to put them to sleep but still allow visitors to view them.

Of course - with signs up all around saying preservation has halted do to lack of funding.

Time to sell it to a private investor. The job will actually get done then, and he or she will still probably exhibit the final product.

How comes Obama’s vacations are never threatened because of lack of federal funds?

I am not sure this is the federal government’s job. I think it is the job of worthy citizens to step forward and fundraise.

I believe the Hundley was restored using mostly donations.

This is just the Fed-size version of the temper tantrum pulled by any local town where suddenly there is not enough money in the budget for school books, chalk, toilet paper for the school. You name it. Whatever gets the public’s attention. Meanwhile the same town will have hired another dozen or so assistant vice principals for LGBT studies.

Just claim that the entire crew was gay and that the Monitor was the original love boat. All the money they need would come flowing like manna from heaven.

“I cannot believe this could be allowed to happen.”

Two big reasons and why this is happening to our once very prosperous country. It is only the beginning. It is also why we are in such debt.

1- Crooked leaders and politicians failed to defend our borders for decades. They gave mostly unskilled uneducated invaders amnesty and access to our social services and safety net in the 80s, and as they wish to do now. They failed to enforce our laws.

2- The same gang failed to defend our our national security, national sovereignty, our market, our economy, and our tax base while making the globalists who own them very rich and when they screwed up requiring taxpayers to bail them out. There are tons of waste, fraud and corruption too but the core reason is that those entrusted to defend America, gave it away.

Now Obama is giving away more with his secret Hollywood inspired Trans Pacific Partnership that will weaken our sovereign rights to run our own country. Americans can argue about politics but while we are doing it our nation is being stolen.

USS Monitor preservation threatened due to lack of Federal funds.

Let the USS Monitor vote in Nov 2014. There will be plenty of .gov money for it then.
