From the battlefield…tell that to vets who want to come to the memorial to pay their respects.
Tell that to the families of dead soldiers returning home only you stupid tea-baggers (who rely on government) want to shut down the government, the majority of Americans despise you as shown by all the recent polls. You idiots went from wanting OBAMACARE to be fully defunded to now only mildly happy the government is shut down… funny how weak and pathetic your position has become in a matter of days after President Obama outmaneuvered and out-smarted you idiots, LOL!

There's nothing sweeter than to hear the anguished oink from red states that they're suffering because of the teahadist shutdown.

It appears the only way to get attention with Obama running the government is to shut it down. Obama has done more damage to the country in five years than most people would have ever expected. One only needs to look at the people he brought with him into government to see why people are begging to look at us like we are a banana republic.

Yea, just look worldwide. The smallest government is in Somalia. You are proposing that our government be like Somalia. Is that what you mean? The US should let other nations take care if any pirate ships start stalking the shores off the US coastline?

You are a complete troll and being a loser in life ,you expect everyone regardless of skills and ability to be lowered to you level.
It isn't going to happen and as you will find out the middle class is fed up with giving handouts to lazy scum suckers like you.
You do understand that communism didn't work and for an example you hero Stalin starved millions of peasants so he could have the failure of collective farms.
The Democratic party is in jeopardy of becoming RIP because of people like you.

The founding fathers didn't think so, they replaced the Articles of Confederation with the 'Constitution'. Should we go back to the Articles?

What a bunch of rambling nonsensical gibberish! You can't spell, you can't write properly, you can't even punctuate or capitalize properly. So from this observation, I'd say you don't even think properly. You must be about 88 years old. Am I right? By the way, what the hell is "NOONE"?

this is starting to sound good to me. We can give up all our freedom so I can quit my job and live off the government for 10 years so everyone can wise up and quit there jobs and we will all be equal since no one will be working. Then, 10 years from now there will be no more welfare, food stamps, healthcare, or HUD around because no one is left to pay for it and we can all be equally broke, without houses without food or water and can live off the land, killing each other for survival. That socialistic plan sure sounds great! I think I'll quit my job tomorrow! What was I thinking being a conservative for so long? You liberals sure have it all figured out!

Typical conservative fear mongering. Government programs have always been around to help people that need help. What's the big deal? It's easy to sit back and criticize people that get government help when things are going well for you. But, someday you may get sick, lose you job, or lose your money unexpectedly, and you will thank God for the government programs that are there to help you too!

It's not the ones that truly need help to get over a hump. It's the blood sucking leaches that make a career out of sucking of the government tit I have a problem with. Maybe people like you.

The federal government says it doesn't have the manpower to keep the lights turne on at national memorials...
...but they still have the manpower to setup barracades and staff them with guards to turn away veterans. Blocking veteran access to memorials is a political stunt perpetuated by the Democrats.

The veterans know who's giving orders to the jack booted thugs who turn them away.

Shame on you. We will not forget.
