Real Americans Showing How It’s Done

WHAT WAS MEANT TO BE a final gathering of heroes instead becomes a final victory for dozens of World War II vets who refuse to let the government’s budget battle block a visit to their memorial in the nation’s capital.

You can read more here or in a multitude of many other places.

You see, they understand that isn’t the government’s memorial, it’s theirs.  They don’t need someone to hold their hand to do something.  They can actually go to a memorial without our government. 

With bagpipers playing “Amazing Grace,” nearly 200 veterans from Mississippi and Iowa swept past barricades and security guards at the World War II Memorial in Washington in order to keep a commitment to visit the site, which was closed today due to the partial government shutdown. The veterans, in their 80s and 90s, were accompanied by Rep. Steven Palazzo, R-Miss., a former Marine who earlier vowed not to let the National Park Police keep them from a planned visit to the open-air monument.

Consider that for a moment.  Our government, in semi-shut down, barricaded our memorial and then posted National Park Police at the barricaded and shut down memorial. 

Assclowns.  Who makes these decisions and why?

Thankfully, the Park Police exercised better judgment than the people who ordered the memorial barricaded. 

“I’m not going to enforce the ‘no stopping or standing’ sign for a group of 90 World War II veterans,” a U.S. Park Police officer, who declined to give his name, told The Washington Post. “I’m a veteran myself.”

    You do not need a park service when you have civilized people visiting. I think they demonstrated that as well – along with the Tea Party.

      “Elected leaders should not be treated better than the American people, which is precisely why hardworking Americans deserve the same Obamacare exception that President Obama has already granted Members of Congress.”

    In this country, a government shutdown should be ignored, if not celebrated.
    That’s the whole point. Anyone who thinks differently should not be in this country.
    There’s a myriad of alternate options to suit their needs.

    So does a gov. shutdown mean we can’t bomb Syria?

      LOL, I thought Vlad already told bambi he couldn’t?

      I’m gonna go see if the grandkids and still practice soccer. It’s weird, it’s like the world keeps spinning even if we shut down the gubmint.
