    Gov Shutdown: WWII Vets Denied Access to DC Open Memorials

    This is just pure bull shit, these are open air memorials! The administration had them reinstall the barracks following the 1st wave of vets hit the memorial Monday night!

    New wave of WWII veterans move barricades to access DC memorial

    Edit: The Obama Administration has decided to block access to public memorials on the National Mall as a result of the government shutdown. Like its decision to end White House tours when the sequester cuts took effect, there is no rational reason for this. The Park Police, nominally in charge of monitoring these spaces, isn't even effected by the shutdown. Shutting off access to these sites is gratuitous and petulant.

    Its politics. Show the American people how much this shutdown hurts, the way they pressure their reps never to let it happen again. Its the same thing that happens when a bureaucracy is forced to cut its budget. They dont trim the fat, they make it hurt so they can show that it cant live without the past budget. Its all bullshit.

    Because they think they can. They can't get away with it forever and if they really think hauling away 80 year old vets is going to improve their public opinion, they have another thing coming. This is the start of public disobedience and if they keep throwing up fences, it will only get worse. I think they are going to cave, they are going to concede a 1 year delay on the individual mandate, and they will have egg on their faces.

    Or outright open conflict, but that is no ones hope and I give it about a .002% chance of happening anyways.

    That's Obama's MO. He takes extra non-necessary steps to inflict as much pain as he can then blame the Republicans. He's a scumbag who cares more about his image and ideology than the rest of us.

    Belmont nailed it. In Arizona we just had a large group of people turned away from a rafting trip that cost them about 30K dollars. They won't be reimbursed and are screwed. They are blocking access to make it hurt. We don't need babysitters at our national parks and monuments. I have been to the WWII memorial and there is no reason to block access. There is nothing there that needs securing or babying.
