ROFL!!! Have some more kool aid.... Our president will fund and negotiate with Al-Q in Syria and the muslim brotherhood but calls the tea partiers terrorists and says they're holding a gun to our head.... Some leader he can't even negotiate with political groups in his own country.

Exactly how does the government save money by erecting barriers and using security to block people from going to an open air monument?

The situation eloquently explained. With video.

This whole episode should be renamed, "GOP to investigate why their vote for a govt. shutdown produced a govt. shutdown."

This bulls#it isn't even fooling the Fox crowd anymore.

Teahadists are limited by their own crazy base, if they don't lockstep they'll lose to an even crazier opponent in a primary. But by doing this they piss off the rest of the nation and lose all hope of winning at the national level ever again. No legislation was ever realistically in danger, they know it can't be repealed, but the base doesn't so this is just a paccy for them.

@5Cats - The story here is exaggerated. Police never threatened anyone, that's all rumor and speculation by idiots who write conservative blogs funded by the Koch brothers.

This article that is linked in that blog in the sentence "Police threatened to arrest visiting veterans..." doesn't even say anything about them being threatened, hahaha! In fact, this is what the article says about their visit, "Many elderly veterans, some in wheelchairs, broke through the barriers set up around the memorial, AS POLICE, PARK SERVICE EMPLOYEES, AND TOURISTS LOOKED ON." No one was threatened with arrest, it's bullsh*t to get people like you, who will believe anything, all excited.

@sickandtired: You have it ass-backwards: The Repubs have PASSED SIX BILLS in the House to continue vital services, ALL have been blocked by the Dems in the Senate. And Obama vowed to VETO them anyhow!
Facts > fiction

@SmagBoy1: Read the article: the shutdown orders came DIRECTLY from the White House.
Obama has had 3 years to avoid this and chose NOT TO.

@5CATS there's a pretty significant different in what happened and facts.

@normalfreak2: Links or STFU...

@SmagBoy1: Why not change defence spending? It's already been cut time after time.
Get it? The debt is spiraling out of control and Obama's cure? SPEND MORE MONEY!!!
Few want it.
It's broken
We have to pass ObamaCare to see what it is...

CrakrJak, those polls are bullpoo. Sure, 57% are against "Obamacare". The Republicans and FOXNews have done a great job there. But, when asked, 2 in 3 are in support of the individual measures that make up "Obamacare".

I'm not saying the ACA is a great plan. I'm not saying it shouldn't be improved! Please, let's do it! But not at the cost of shutting down the government. You want to change a law? Fine! Do it correctly (and Obama should, too!). Debate it, put it through committee, House and Senate vote, and get it changed. Doing it this way, as I say, is a Republican gambit, holding the government hostage. What's next? Changing Clinton or Carter laws using this tactic?

Too, why the ACA? Why not change Defense spending? Why not restore taxes to what they were during Clinton (the economy was GREAT then, right?)? Why this? I'll tell you: it's a Republican drat job, that's why. I'm not saying Dems are all great, but this one *is* the Republicans.

I generally despise Bill Maher but he's right on one thing; Conservative Republicans live in an Alternate realty. I mean Old Ollie REALLY thinks Obama sits at his desk and orders the FBI/CIA to go shut down a park to "stick it to the Republicans" REALLY? Is this High School? who does stupid petty poo like that willfully? THe POTUS is an IVY league educated individual it would seem pretty silly for him to use power for that specific purpose. You know not like he has other pressing matters on his mind. To me thinking he'd do something like that is akin to a conspiracy theory. Complete Bullhit.

@5CATS there's a pretty significant different in what happened and facts. You provided nothing but an opinion piece with a MISLEADING title from an incredibly biased source. Natural instinct is to write off that article and take it with a grain of salt. The Foundry is basically a tabloid political group spouting nonsense 95% of the time.

Obama could've shutdown the DEA, instead he shuts down the things most people don't even complain about. Brinkmanship at its finest!

SmagBoy: Obama knows that his healthcare law is a total screw up, he's exempted most of his corporate buddies, many unions and congress. Now he wants it's implementation delayed a year, but not for the average citizen. He's only delaying it for corporations so that much of it's impact won't be felt before the 2014 elections.

So since Obama has admitted by his own actions that his healthcare bill is a miserable failure, why won't he allow it to be fixed?

57% of Americans DO NOT want Obamacare and less than 40% do want it. Harry Reid has been Obama's de facto veto machine in the senate for over 3 years now. Reid hasn't allowed an annual budget bill to even come up for a vote in the senate and he has even allowed them to go to the conference committee where there might be some compromise negotiated.

It's Obama and Reid that are stonewalling this, not the Republicans.

spanz, the Dems didn't shut down the government. At all. The group who shut down the government is the one who tied an already approved law to the funding of the government. A law. So, what, can Republicans say they don't like a law that Clinton signed and hold the country hostage over that one? How far back can they go? Know what? If you want to change a law you introduce changes in committee, put the changes to a vote and then enact the new law. That's how it's done. When you shut down the government over an already approved law, you're being a bunch of asshat drattards. And that doesn't apply to Democrats in this situation. Only Republicans. And your lies won't change that.

what the democrats are doing is totally asinine. Closing parks that are basically just open spaces needing nobody there to supervise, shutting down web cams like at the national zoo that require no human work, things like that. They are just pissed, and acting like babies. Hope this goes on for another week or two.....dying to see what chicken poo stuff the dems pull next

What the republicans have done is f'king inexcusable. They're blocking the budget solely on the basis of their objection to 'Obamacare' - nothing more. You're so desperate to destroy it, you'd plunge your country into ruin to do so. Kinda makes you monstrous, a-moral pricks of the highest order.

Update: I was right, those were feds blocking the entrance to the inn. If I were the sheriff of that county, I'd bust their sorry asses for felony armed criminal action and ask the judge to keep their guns if they make bail.

@WhoDat: And that makes this story false? NOPE!

@djwajda: True! And more! There's an organization that gives free rides to vets (especially disabled ones) to visit National Parks and Monuments! Since they schedule well in advance? This FAKE lockout would mean hundreds of disappointed veterans.

The park is open 24/7/365 and is OFTEN unstaffed. Until Obama ordered it closed!

The "Parkies" secured the barricades with heavier wire now... not nice at all.

@Afugy: It's called "Liberal Logic" eh? If Obama says it's OK? Then it is! So what if it's explicitly ILLEGAL under current law? Obama is above all human laws...

@normalfreak2: Does your Mammy know she raised a troll?

@Gerry1: The orders came directly from the White House, it's an undisputed fact.

The WW1 Memorial has ONE single "barricade" with a note attached, same thing should apply to the WW2 one as well...

CaptKangaroo, I seriously doubt that those were STATE troopers blocking that business. More likely they were federal park rangers. If I were the business owner, I would call the local sheriff and have him come out and arrest those goons.

Gerry, Obama actually did order that this monument be closed. It would cost the government not one single penny to leave it open, but Obama spent EXTRA money to set up barricades and post guards just because he's a nasty little prick.

He has even closed or attempted to close state parks and privately owned businesses. A park ranger has actually said he received orders to make people as miserable as he can.

Mark Levin said that if one of Obama's goons so much as lays a finger on a WWII vet, he will flood the mall with half a million people. I think he could do it.

This isn't about a lack of funds for these facilities. Obama is spending MORE money to close them that it would cost to leave them open. It's about Obama and Reid punishing the American people for having the temerity to have voted for Republicans to represent them in congress.

They are both loathsome, despicable pieces of putrid dog $#!+ who should both burn in hell.

Nice take on that "On Obama's Orders" 'cause that's what he does...sit at a desk and yell into the phone "Arrest that one! AND that one! No, the other one you idiot!"

The shutdown is because Dems & Reps can't make a budget. It is CONGRESS who writes the budget not the President. POTUS just gets to tweak it a little and take credit for a good one while dodging blame for a bad one.

Biased caption is Biased.

"who is there (working) to stop them?"

Park police considered "essential" to security.

Thing is the WWII memorial is on the National Mall, along with the Lincoln memorial and the Washington Memorial. It's not clear if it's even legal to close it, because it's right out in the open.

They also just wired the barricades together, but people are vowing to remove them again tomorrow anyways. The park police are refusing to arrest anyone and I don't blame them. They know this closure is a load of crap and don't feel comfortable arresting 80 and 90 year old WWII vets at their own memorial.

Here in North Carolina, there is a privately owned restaurant/hotel on leased federal land on the Blue Ridge Parkway. They were told that due to the shut down, they must empty the hotel and close down. State troopers were deployed to block the entrance to keep cars out- but if ya park your car on the side of the parkway- in the legally designated spots- you could WALK into the restaurant, as to block pedestrians would be illegal.
What a freaking bunch of moronic bureaucrats- drag them into the streets and hang every last one of them.
