His highness is a vindictive man, attempting to make the 'shut down' as painful as possible, just as he did the sequester. Barricading monuments and placing guards to enforce that has got to cost more than it did to leave them open.
The National Park Service placed barricades at Mount Vernon, which is privately owned, because they (we) co-own the parking lots. They later removed them. There was no NPS maintenance going on, so to send out a crew to put up barricades; well ...
During the infamous blockade of WWII veterans from the WWII memorial, a Park Service official said the order to shut down came from the White House OMB. Again, bringing in crews and forklifts is not a normal daily expense at these outdoor monuments.
Aren't there enough real problems that we don't have to play games for petty political purposes.
has been created than we can imagine - USA ??? Oh - THAT country!
What are they doing???????? They are slowly killing it off.! May God have mercy on them - they'll have to answer one day, no matter how 'tough' they act at this time.
THANK YOU RICK - you are the one that dares to speak out, bless you!
This is the type of person one gets who is raised on the leftist ideology and is a student of Alinsky, as Hillary is by the way. He is covered in the slime of Chicago politics which are the most corrupt in the US and has brought other slime covered people with him to DC.
This is planned vindictiveness which is "not letting a good crisis go to waste." The man is a destroyer and will stop at nothing to accomplish his goal as he stated to "fundamentally transform America."
Nothing new on today's editorial page.
This is a bigoted cartoon; nothing but a piece of propaganda intended, intentionally, to illicit the kinds of responses posted above.
Does the AC have no shame to disrespect the Iwo Jima event for its own conservative, Republican, political propaganda?
" This is a bigoted cartoon;"
dahreese, you mind explaining what is 'bigoted' about the cartoon?
Charles, I have no intention of reaching down so low as to have to explain this to you.
You either get it or you don't.
play games for petty political purposes?"
I guess not.
You just don't want to be put on the spot.
