Congressman Castigates Park Ranger For The Memorial Closure He Voted For

"But Mark Segraves, reporting for NBC News' Washington affiliate, managed to capture the howler highlight of the Great World War II Memorial Bleat-n-Repeat -- Rep. Randy Neugebauer's (R-Tex.) Wednesday confrontation of a poor park ranger on the scene -- who was doing nothing more than her job -- blaming her for the closure he voted for and telling her that she should be ashamed of herself.

"How do you look at them and ... deny them access?" said Neugebauer. He, with most House Republicans, had voted early Sunday morning to pass a funding measure that would delay the Affordable Care Act, a vote that set up a showdown with the Senate and President Barack Obama. With the parties unable to agree on how to fund the federal government, non-essential government functions shut down Tuesday.
"It's difficult," responded the Park Service employee.

"Well, it should be difficult," replied the congressman, who was carrying a small American flag in his breast pocket.

"It is difficult," responded the Park Service employee. "I'm sorry, sir."

"The Park Service should be ashamed of themselves," the congressman said.

"I'm not ashamed," replied the ranger.

From there, Segraves reports, "a crowd of onlookers got involved," and began loudly demanding that Neugebauer lay off the park ranger, pointing out again and again that the reason everyone was in the position they were in was due to the fact that Congress very specifically put them there. Neugebauer countered that it was all really Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's (D-Nev.) fault, but that failed to impress anyone.

Kent Sorenson Quits After Report On Michele Bachmann Campaign Money
"IOWA CITY, Iowa -- IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP)— An Iowa state senator resigned Wednesday after a special investigator found it likely he violated ethics rules by taking money from political entities connected to former presidential candidate Michele Bachmann and then denying he'd done so.
Sen. Kent Sorenson told The Associated Press that he had already decided he would not run for re-election, and that his resignation was best for his family. He said his decision was "absolutely not" an admission of wrongdoing.
"I've spent money fighting this that I shouldn't have. I'm just not going to do that to my family anymore," he said in a telephone interview.
His resignation came after attorney Mark Weinhardt said in a report released earlier in the day that it was "manifestly clear" Sorenson negotiated payments in 2011 that eventually reached $7,500 monthly in exchange for his work as Bachmann's Iowa campaign chair. The money flowed from Bachmann's political action committee, MichelePAC, and her presidential campaign to a Colorado consulting firm, which in turn paid Sorenson's Iowa-based firm, Weinhardt wrote in the report filed with the Iowa Senate.
Sorenson's compensation from MichelePAC is a violation of a Senate rule that bars senators from being paid by political action committees, Weinhardt wrote. Senators will have to decide whether the payments from her presidential campaign also violate the rule since it is unclear, he wrote.
Sorenson knew that accepting the compensation was improper, and later made false statements when he denied that he had taken money tied to Bachmann entities, Weinhardt wrote. Those statements might amount to misconduct in office, a felony that would also be a violation of the ethics rules, the investigator added.
Weinhardt was appointed to investigate an ethics complaint filed against Sorenson by a former Bachmann aide. Weinhardt's report went to the Senate Ethics Committee, which is expected to meet to consider the report and what to do about it.
Before announcing his resignation, Sorenson said he disagreed with the report's conclusions that he made false statements or that he had accepted compensation from Bachmann's camp.
"I was never employed by Michele Bachmann. I was never employed by Bachmann for President. I was never employed by the PAC," he said. "I had a corporation that worked for a corporation that worked for Michele Bachmann."

Don't know the facts as the security people saw it. It is a sensitive area, and if it had been an actual terrorist attempt and they hadn't reacted so severely, then what?? Another potential mass killing??

It's a difficult time we live in.

I agree with you about cops shooting far too fast, even tasers. It's the era we live in. Most police forces are nothing but cover ups for violent cops.

"How much money does the U.S. government give oil, gas and coal companies?
In the United States, credible estimates of annual fossil fuel subsidies range from $14 billion to $52 billion annually, while even efforts to remove small portions of those subsidies have been defeated in Congress, as shown in the graphic below. Download your own pdf copy here."
http://priceofoil.org/fossil-fuel-subsidies/
""$2.4 Billion: subsidies to the Big Five producers debated and defeated in the Senate in 2011 and 2012
The Repeal Big Oil Tax Subsidies Act, sponsored by Senator Menendez (D-NJ) was debated and defeated by the Senate for two years running, and would have eliminated $2.4 billion in annual tax deductions for the five major oil companies: BP, Exxon, Chevron, Shell and ConocoPhillips.
Although the move would have been an initial step, it’s just the tip of the iceberg. So called “independent” oil companies are hardly small businesses. Major integrated oil companies also include Occidental, Amerada Hess, Marathon, Murphy Oil and dozens of others. Together, these companies produced 53.5 percent of U.S. oil in 2009.
$4 Billion: Subsidy cuts President Obama proposed in the 2013 budget.
President Obama has proposed cutting fossil fuel subsidies every year he’s been in office. The projections for savings have varied slightly each year but always hover around $4 billion annually. Congress has never even proposed voting on all of them.
$10 billion. Low end credible comprehensive estimates. Several recent independent estimates of U.S. fossil fuel subsidies all arrive at roughly this number, although they consider slightly different things. Recent studies include those conducted by Management Information Services, Environmental Law Institute, and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development – OECD.(The OECD numbers compiled and analyzed here.)
The Sanders / Ellison “End Polluter Welfare Act” also clocks in at $11.3 billion annually.
$52 billion. Highest credible comprehensive estimate. Includes some costs associated with defending pipelines and shipping lanes in the Persian Gulf. Earth Track, an NGO that specializes in subsidy valuation, estimates that annual oil, gas and coal subsidies total about $52 billion annually."

You turn playing dumb into an art form.

"Michele Bachmann Investigation Gets House Ethics Committee Extension
by Ben Jacobs Sep 12, 2013 4:45 AM EDT
The congresswoman can’t seem to put her 2012 debacle behind her—the House Ethics Committee says it is extending its probe into her presidential campaign. Ben Jacobs gets a copy of the original complaint.

The House Ethics Committee announced Wednesday that it is extending its investigation into alleged campaign finance irregularities by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN). At issue is whether the congresswoman’s 2012 presidential campaign used money from her political action committee to pay staff and whether she used campaign staff and resources on her book tour.

You are clueless-they are many stores that want to be with Target also. They are considered majors and they all create foot traffic. In one plaza close to where I work at times. There is a Kohls, a Jewel, a Target, a Dress Barn, a Best Buy--and the Walmart with 30 more stores is directly across the highway with 20 more stores in that Plaza and oh oh --the big huge mall with 200 stores is is directly across the east west street. Why do you suppose they are all there? it is because of foot traffic. Walmart is a huge draw for these stores.

I cant believe I'm actually going to have to agree with a retarded convict like you over Galt, but:

had I been an officer on that scene, I would have opened fire immediately when she began to attempt to hit the officers with her deadly weapon (vehicle). They showed great restraint, and proobably were TOO slow in pulling their triggers.

I know. Ross in the Chicago market has latched on to the Walmart Plazas. There is a big store called Fresh Market Grocery store that is in the Plaza with Walmart, it was an Omni grocery store before that-it is huge. I don't what that tick is talking about. Walmart draws traffic. Stores need exposure. Walmart gives them the exposure. Personally I do shop at the Walmart-not my thing and too busy--but I do go to Ross and Marshalls. I hate paying retail for anything because I know the cost.
