Barry the bum closed open air Memorials to make it harder on Americans and Veterans because he don't get his selfish dictator way. Resign you bum or be impeached.

The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), a constitutional law firm based in Washington, D.C., is prepared to take legal action if the Obama Administration does not re-open the national World War II memorial in Washington, D.C.- a memorial that was barricaded as a result of the government shutdown.

The ACLJ is also calling on the Administration to remove the barricades, and demand that President Obama apologize to WWII veterans.

What we are witnessing is a disturbing violation of the First Amendment rights of our nation's heroes. By spending money to bring in barricades to attempt to shut-down an open-air memorial is abhorrent and deeply insulting to WWII vets who defended the very freedoms that are now threatened by the Obama Administration's actions.

We are prepared to take legal action if this injustice is not corrected. We are also launching a national campaign to demand that the barricades be removed and that President Obama issue an apology to the WWII veterans.

In a letter sent today to President Obama, ACLJ called the shutdown of the memorial "morally inexcusable." At the same time, we noted the ACLJ is prepared to take legal action if the memorial is not re-opened. "Should the closure of the Memorial continue, we will be obligated to file a federal lawsuit seeking an injunction against the Government," the letter concludes.

The ACLJ is also launching a national campaign demanding that the barricades be removed and that President Obama issue a personal apology to veterans.

For one thing, the POTUS did not close the memorials. By not passing a clear spending bill, and therefore not providing the necessary funding, congress is responsible for the closing of the monuments.

You're exactly right man. Obama had nothing to do with the shut down, it's mostly a group of aholes in the senate who need to be bitch slapped and shitcanned. They are the ones holding things up and causing the shut down because they oppose the ACA.
Even though it was passed by two houses of Congress after 14 months of debate. Then its constitutionality was challenged, and that battle was lost in the Supreme Court. A few months later, American voters re-elected the president who stood 100% behind the Affordable Care Act and rejected the candidate who swore to repeal it.
The ACA is a done deal, it should have nothing to do with getting a spending bill together to run the country.

Republicans are simply terrified that it will work. Like Cruz said, they are afraid that the people will try it and be happy with it because then it will be harder to take it away from them.

This morning there was an interview with the head of the park service. He explained that the memorial was closed due to the furlough of thousands of park service employees. They were furloughed because the House refuses to pass a "clean CR" unless the ACA is defended or delayed. The ACA is a law that has been upheld by the Supreme Court. Republicans need to get over it and stop trying to stop a law that will help millions.

Hail to the Tea Party Reps for rocking a boat that has needed rocking for a long time. Hold the line guys! Take our government back from the crooks that now prevail. We can't afford a prolonged shutdown? We can't afford to run our government the way Obama's crooks want to either!

17 Trillion in DEBT! Senator Cruz, work to keep the thing Shutdown! Yes! Good job! Go TP.

Democrat Tip O'neil shut the government down many many times. Keep up the good work TP. Go for a balanced budget.

his is an INSULT to the Republic of the United States of America and to those who have fought and died for every citizen's Rights. A GRAVE INSULT to those who have fought and returned home as the Greatest Generation of WWII veterans who are aging quickly and saved this country and many other countries around the world. SHAME on the President and the Executive Branches of Government closing down a National Monument that is normally an OPEN AIR MEMORIAL to those who have served during a time when the entire world was at war..

President Obama and the Obama Administration has no respect for the military or for Veterans who have served this country and in defending our freedoms, provided the opportunity for a young man from a broken mixed race family to rise up to become the most powerful man in the world. No thanks necessary, and none received from this arrogant, elitist, revengeful, entitled, petulant child of a leader.

Much like we saw during the so-called “sequester,” a hair-brained scheme of President Obama’s which with the help of his puppy-dog media he was able to blame on Republicans, we saw kids stopped from touring the White House while the President took trips to Hawaii and Africa on the taxpayer’s millions. Now, with the government shutdown, comes another opportunity to flex his power needlessly and shamefully: Veterans are being denied entry to visit the World War II memorial in Washington under the guise of the park being shut-down due to the Federal shut-down.

No doubt the White House is counting on their Leftists-in-arms, the major media, to spread the notion that the mean Republicans and their Ted Cruz-Tea Party led crusade backfired and prevented these Veterans from a long-planned heart-felt trip to the memorial.



Fact is, the White House knew these Veterans were coming and actually spent time and money making double-sure they wouldn’t be able to get near the memorial and spent more money preventing them from seeing the memorials to the wars they fought in. Yes, they are caught going well out of their way to stop these Veterans in a cynical effort to blame the government shut-down and get their political adversaries some bad press, this type of pathetic partisanship is a slap in the face of every active military and veteran around the world. Barack Obama owes everything to our military, as does the rest of America – but he’ll use them as a prop in his game if it means a couple points. I only hope people share this and turn it back on him.

Shutdown Day 3: Gosh, Obama's Ironic Anti-Union Metaphor Has Me All Confused Now

“If a worker shut down a manufacturing plant until they got what they wanted, they’d be fired,” said the Obama that was famously endorsed for president by such labor unions the AFL-CIO and SEUI. LOL

I think it is inevitable that Obamacare will pass and when it does, you idiots supporting it deserve what you get. I can't wait to hear the bitching when you discover you have to pay the first $5,000 and then 30% of all medical procedures in addition. So, if we do the math on a $30,000 procedure:

5,000 +(.30 * 30,000)= 5,000 + 9,000 =$14,000 (out of your pocket)

Don't worry, though. Pretty soon money won't mean anything when the country collapses after there are not enough taxpayers to pay for all of Obama's mistakes. Better start brushing up on your Chinese, folks.

Mark Levin Explodes:‘You Lay One Damn Hand on One of Those World War II Vets…and I’ll Bring Half a Million People’ to the Memorial

Conservative radio host Mark Levin was “stewing” on Wednesday thinking about the Obama administration’s efforts to block veterans from visiting the World War II memorial in Washington, D.C. during the government shutdown — and he wasn’t shy about letting everyone know.

“I want to say this loud and clear to the people on Capitol Hill who are listening, to this administration,” Levin said on his radio program.“You lay one damn hand on one of those World War II vets at that memorial and I’ll bring half a million people to that damn memorial! You got that?!”

Levin went on to accuse the White House of playing “damn games” during the partial government shutdown.

“You’ll ignite a movement in this country like you’ve never seen before! The biker patriot army – veterans from all over the country, every single war and battle in this country, Republican, Democrat, Independent, whatever!” he warned.

The radio host didn’t let up, reminding everyone that the WWII heroes are in their 80s and 90s.“I’ll be damned if this president or anybody else is going to shut down that WWII memorial,” he added.

Levin continued, reiterating his warning:“So let me repeat! You lay one hand on one of those men and arrest them for going to their memorial, which they fought for, which was not paid by you dammit, it was paid by the American people – we will come out of every town and city in this nation! We will come out of every county. And both coasts! Both borders! And we will march on Washington against your tyranny!”

Levin may not have to follow through on his threat as the National Park Service has apparently decided to allow veterans to visit the WWII memorial going forward because owebama and the lying demonrats don't want millions marching on Washington right now.

Righteous anger, it’s a beautiful thing.

Obama's idiocy has nothing to do with his race and if that is the best you can come up with, then you fall into the same category as him. Since his promises to turn things around five years ago, fuel costs have risen. Grocery costs have risen. Utility costs have risen. Government debt has risen. Tuition costs have risen. The rich have become richer while the middle class is disappearing. Former allies have turned their backs on us and our enemies mock us.

Of all these failures and so many more, I don't see race having anything to do with it. No, his failures are the result of his lack of fortitude, lack of reason, and lack of experience. Period!

Uh...if already did pass. It was debated, passed through the house and senate, signed by the president, and upheld by the Supreme Court. The problem that the republicans have is that it will work and they swore to impede the Obama administration, even if it hurts the American people, which it is now. All so they can try to gain power.

Does The General offer health insurance, too? I guess you must work for one of those companies Obama granted special exemptions to since every major health care provider in the country has already stated they will have to raise the costs of corporate plans to overcome the costs of Obamacare. You remember, don't you? Mr. Transparency offered special exemptions to major corporations headquartered in states of those politicians who just weren't quite on board with Obamacare. Makes you wonder who really sides with the corporations, don't it?
