That government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish!

A Petty Action by a very Petty President.

A Petty Action by a very Petty President.   It is not only this action, but others as well, the one that comes to mind the most is the cancelation, until this morning, of Football Games by the Military Academies’.   The monies used to hold these games are “NON APROPRIATED” monies, and hence there is absolutely NO REASON,  (OTHER THAN SHEAR PETTYNESS), to deny the Academies’ their football games.  Many of the Parks are also unmanned and could be used.

 

Again, I will say that this all goes to show the disgusting depth that Obama will go to, in order to have “HIS Way”.   This Brings to mind a disagreeable child taking his toys home with him after having a disagreement with the other children.

The government shutdown should never, ever turn away veterans (especially WW II veterans) from visiting an un-manned memorial established specifically for them!

Obama Holding Memorials Hostage!

In spite of Government Shutdown and Closure of WW II Memorial, Veterans Celebrate Anyway!

Obama Cannot Squelch Veteran’s Celebration!

Dear Conservative Friend,

The Government shutdown has begun!

But it is not enough to STOP WW II Two veterans!

The Obama Government Shutdown was “arranged” to inflict damage on veterans.  Several groups of veterans from World War II ventured to Washington D.C. to remember their fallen comrades in World War Two.

In spite of the fact that the memorial is an OPEN AIR WWII MEMORIAL, it WAS BARRACADED due to the Government shutdown!!  Someone had to be paid to block it off from people coming to walk the grounds!

These heroes were mostly between 85 – 95 years old and were there for a once in a life time visit.  They managed to respect their fallen and still find solace in each other despite having to “trespass” on government property to pray for their former comrades.  Honor Flight, a non-profit organization, helped to fly these veterans to the nation’s capital, just to visit the memorial and had planned it years ago. 

This is an outside, free roaming park, with no inside museum and not one paid government employee missing in action due to the government shutdown.

Yet, representatives of the Obama administration, sent “reinforcements’ to “secure” the closed gates.  The veterans continued on their march to celebrate their fallen comrades!

Many Obama administration minions actually wondered why they were dispatched to ward off these heroes and World War Two veterans.

Please notify Congress that cannot diminish the celebration of the WW II veterans as they visit the Memorial.  Let Congress know that they MUST negotiate the opening of the government shutdown, without giving up the anti-Obamacare.

In spite of the Democrat’s absolute refusal to negotiate, Veterans will continue to come to Washington to honor their fallen comrades.

They will do what happened yesterday.  They will IGNORE the barricades put up by the Obama administration, and will celebrate their fallen comrades.

To many, including a 93-year-old veteran, they will honor their fellow veterans.

The shame upon the Obama administration is that they already knew these veterans had already scheduled a trip to the Memorial, yet they did NOT make any accommodations for them!

This included a request from a Congressman!

In reality, the Obama administration created more work and more debt to block the Veterans admittance.  Since it is an open-air memorial which is most generally accessible 24/7, it required more work (and taxpayer dollars with the government shutdown) to block it off than to just simply leave it alone.

Congressman Steven Palazzo (R-MS) sent a letter to President Obama asking him to keep the World War II memorial open. His letter read:

“It would truly be devastating to our veterans that travel great lengths to share this experience with family and friends and see a piece of their own history,” Palazzo wrote in the letter. “Additionally, it would require extra effort, expense, and personnel to put up these barricades and enforce these regulations on open-air monuments than it would to allow Honor Flight veterans to visit their memorial.”

Please notify Congress that cannot diminish the celebration of the WW II veterans as they visit the Memorial.  Let Congress know that they MUST negotiate the opening of the government shutdown, without giving up the anti-Obamacare.

The group of WW II veterans numbered roughly 92 Mississippi Gulf Coast veterans, as well as 50 or so more veterans. They refused to let a government shutdown diminish their dream of honoring their fallen comrades.

Approximately 70 years ago they fought the enemy in Europe.  Now, they are fighting governmental bureaucracy!

In spite of the closing, the National Mall provided a solace to the veterans who remembered those whose lives were taken in battle over 70 years ago. 

It is not known who “officially” broke through the yellow tape, as they were all respectful of the situation of the moment.

U. S. Rep. Michele Bachman (R-MN) ran over to assist their celebration.  She said, “There were all these veterans standing here behind police tape, and they’re prevented from going in to see the memorial.  So about maybe eight to 12 of us members, one member had scissors and cut the tape and then we just escorted the veterans in, and there was a bagpiper along, and he led the way.”

Rep. Steven King (R-IA) also assisted in getting the gates to open for these outstanding veterans.

Join the conversation on Facebook!

The government shutdown should never, ever turn away veterans (especially WW II veterans) from visiting an un-manned memorial established specifically for them!

Regardless of political affiliation or which side a Congressman takes, veterans must be allowed to visit their memorial!

Just let the vets move about their memorial and make sure they are not violating the government shutdown law.

Sincerely,

Joe Otto

The guy is a complete Amateur; and utter failure, and that says it all!

Comment by David Wallace on October 8, 2013 at 1:15am

This President is a failure, and will stop at nothing to prop up his presidency. Including chasing Octogenarians, nonagenarians, and Centanarians from the WWII memorial. and barricading the open space. and even covering signage of historic landmarks. and let us never forget the lock out of NIH, by Reid, and his comment,

"Now why would I want to do that?"

Comment by Don on October 6, 2013 at 8:46am

I heard on the News that Obama attempted to close down Mt. Vernon which is privately owned, and on TV they said that he did close down the Normandy Beach Cemetery in France.

My sister-in-law,  who is very much in the Liberal camp told me that people should not be aloud into the memorial area because they would "Create Trash" and nobody would be there to pick it up.  Or another comment was that what would happen if a person had an accident and there was nobody to help?

Amazing, the mindset of the Liberal.

Comment by Gregg Veach on October 6, 2013 at 6:01am

It is disgusting to what lengths he will go just to get his way. Open-air areas being closed down that aren't "manned" by anyone, and are "free" to the public.

I saw that the Lincoln Memorial was closed, even though it's not manned, and doesn't have gates or anything, and is generally open to the public. In the past shut downs, Memorials and the like were not shut down.

This guy is trying to make a point, but he just ends up making himself look dictatorial and tyrannical.

GOP: Obama's war on coal kills jobs

Rep. Larry Bucshon gives the Republican Party's Weekly Remarks

Hello, I'm Dr. Larry Bucshon, proudly serving Indiana's Eighth Congressional District. I'm honored to be speaking with you from the Heartland of America on this weekend when we tip our hat to the working man and woman.

America's workers make our country go, so our goal should be to make our economy work for them.

But traveling around Indiana this week, going from job fairs to listening sessions to small businesses, it was easy to see how our workers are still hurting.

We're seeing some jobs come back, but too many of our fellow Americans are stuck in part-time work or have stopped looking altogether. And between wages staying flat -- and costs on everything from food to health care going up -- families are being squeezed at every turn.

Here in Indiana, and in many states throughout the union, we rely on coal to power our homes and provide good-paying middle class jobs -- like the one my family relied on when I was a kid.

My dad spent 35 years as a UMWA coal miner in my hometown of Kincaid, Illinois. He was proud of the work he did everyday and rightly so. The coal mine helped put food on our table and helped me pursue an education and realize the American Dream.

Unfortunately, the current administration is waging a war on this reliable, affordable source of energy and the countless jobs it supports. This is one example of many where the policies coming from Washington, D.C. just don't make sense.

As a physician, I took an oath to "do no harm." While this Administration's policies continue to harm our nation's economy and families struggling to make ends meet, Republicans are offering solutions America's workers can count on. Our solutions will address the sluggish job market and grow our economy over the long run.

First, we need to get people back into steady..............

Obama: 'America deserves a raise,' but Congress won't do it

President Obama's weekly remarks

Hi, everybody. Whether you're firing up the grill, fired up for some college football or filling up the car for one last summer road-trip -- Happy Labor Day weekend.

We set aside Labor Day to honor the working men and women of America. And this Labor Day, we've got more to celebrate. Over the past 53 months, our businesses have added nearly 10 million new jobs. Last month, for the first time since 1997, we created more than 200,000 jobs for six straight months. And for the first time in over a decade, business leaders worldwide have declared, two years running, that the number one place to invest isn't China -- it's America.

So there are reasons to be optimistic about where we're headed. And the decisions we make now will determine whether or not we accelerate this progress -- whether economic gains flow to a few at the top, or whether a growing economy fuels rising incomes and a thriving middle class.

Think about it this Labor Day. The things we often take for granted -- Social Security and Medicare, workplace safety laws and the right to organize for better pay and benefits, even weekends -- we didn't always have these things. Workers and the unions who get their back had to fight for them.  And those fights built a stronger middle class.

To build a stronger middle class in today's changing economy, we've got to keep fighting. We've got to fight for the right to affordable health insurance for everybody. The right to fair pay, family leave and workplace flexibility. The right to a fair living wage.

Let me focus on that last one for a minute. In America, no one who works full-time should ever have to raise a family in poverty. A hard day's work deserves a fair day's pay. And raising the minimum wage would be one of the best ways to give a boost to working families. It would help around 28 million Americans from all walks of life pay the bills, provide for their kids, and spend that money at local businesses. And that grows the economy for everyone.

The bottom line is, America deserves a raise. But............

63% Oppose Obama Executive Order On Immigration

President Obama's push to unilaterally enact changes to the nation's immigration policies is running into fierce opposition from the public, including a majority of his own party. According to the latest IBD/TIPP poll, 73% of the public say Obama should work with Congress on reforms. Just 22% say he should "sidestep Congress and act on his own using executive orders" -- something the president has repeatedly pledged to do. Among
