  • patriotusa2

    We are all political pawns for this president – just ask the Unions.

  • talljohn777

    They spent money to put up barricades in an open air venue that requires absolutely no government intervention to visit… Completely absurd….

    • Joeontheright

      Absolutely correct. It doesn’t take any taxpayer dollars to let visitors view the memorial on their own.

      • jlaurie

        Pouty little crybaby Democrats do this kind of stuff ALL THE TIME! Punish Americans until they join them!

    • maddad1947

      Yes and typical Obama. And when it hits the fan he will find someone else to blame for it.

  • Karen Frazee

    Everything Obama does is not for the good of ‘We the People.’ Impeach Obama. He can take his Executive Orders with him. Why don’t we send him to Iran or Russia?

    • WHBUSMC65

      I would prefer hell for his destination.

      • maddad1947

        I am fairly sure that is his ultimate destination, the question is: How soon?

      • Karen Frazee

        Me too..

    • maddad1947

      They probably have more sense then to take him in.

      • Karen Frazee

        I agree. lol I was being sarcastic. :) Look how Putin snubbed him and how the new Iranian President did not meet with him in person.

    • James

      Just because Russia took in Edward Snowden is no indication they would want the community organizer. In the end, he will probably end up as a man without a country

      • Karen Frazee

        You have that right. Who would take him in.

  • jlaurie

    Odumbo the Racist al Qaeda Clown has absolutely NO respect for faithful veterans…Odumbo hates whitey, hates Christians, and hates the USA

    • Karen Frazee

      He also hates Jews and Italians.

      • jlaurie

        American blacks are the most racist people in the world, bar none, top of the heap!

      • Karen Frazee

        Unfortunately, a lot of them are racist. I blame that on our, so called, African American President.

      • Jackie

        Obama hates everyone but muslims, there is no long any doubt for anyone with at least two brain cells to rub together.

  • Jerry Benson

    For God’s sake, the WWII Memorial is an open air venue. A barricade makes no sense.
    And the white house remains closed even though we waste millions on Obama junkets, vacations and personal concerts.
    This administration is not just arrogant and incompetent. They are evil.

    • mbnick

      Obama was just able to find $100 Mllion for Detroit was unable to find $2 Million (all for security) to keep the White House you own open for you peasants and your kids

    All you have to know is that OBama is a spiteful hateful black and its PAYBACK TIME FOR WHITEY

    • rosemarienoa

      I have been saying the same thing all along!!! Black on white violence has drastically increased since he was elected!!! The good news is that black on black murder is on the increase, especially in Chicago!!! Maybe that will thing their ranks again but I doubt it!!! I say let them kill each other off…..they have nothing going for them anyway!!!

      • jlaurie

        A lot of that killing is Mexican gangs killing black gangs members….go Mexicans, yeee haaa!

  • Beach Dawg

    Insulting they are spending more money to keep it closed than it would cost to leave it open.

    • Que Dub

      DOESN”T cost a fvckn dime to leave it open 24/7 !!!

    • mbnick

      Just another example of how business stupid and anti middle class the Obama administration is. The National Parks MAKE money for the Government. Republican attempt to open them were net with Obama saying he would veto it.

  • USMCVeteran

    Down with the Dicktator-In-Chief!

  • rosemarienoa

    More proof that this so called president is not an American!!! If he truly were an American he would respect these & every veteran & he doesnt!!! He & that “wife” of his dont even respect the American flag!!! The idiot dems really sold the country a pig in a poke!!!!

  • WHBUSMC65

    Thank God that there were members of congress that had the courtesy to open up the memorial. Anyone seen a list of who hey were? I would like to fax a letter of appreciation to them.

    • Robert James

      Rep Governor from Texas lead the charge, along with a few others. They proudly stood together. Bachman was one of them.

      • buck80ish

        Somehow we need to thank them for this fine gesture.
        I suspect they know it already , but it would be great to somehow formally thank them.
        The VETS and those Reps are my heroes for today.

    Why would anyone think he would care about something like that. He hates the military and the American people.

  • darlene

    HE IS A BUTT HEAD

  • jim

    it is ok for our government to support the mussies but no the people of the USA
    their is not a good member of the house or senate, evil, bad people.
    none of them are worth my vote

  • robinsdean

    Yep, they showed Obummer that he is just not presidential material. The Vets ruled the day and Obama lost more credibility. Obama really needs to just go home to Kenya or some Muslim country and let us get back to being a Great America. We have served in our military in World Wars, Korea, Vietnam, the Gulf, Afghanistan, Iraq and we are loyal patriots. How come our president is such a coward and traitor? How about supporting America and Americans?

    • maddad1947

      Obama can’t loose what he doesn’t have.

      • danhspoonhourdc

        What gets me is why does this great pretender want to be ruler over a destroyed nation smoldering in a dump!

  • 40Helen60

    Come on! What will it take for American to take back this country and remove the worse tyrant in our history? Obama hates our military , our flag and everything America stands for with a passion so deep he’s doing everything he set out to do 8 years ago and that is to dismantle our military, re-write our Constitution, and he has no intentions of leaving office. He said he was going to do away with term limits, so listen up, he will never leave unless it’s by force. Welcome to the New World Order, controlled by Dictator Obama. I’m sick and tired of getting phone calls, “We must raise ex amount of dollars to fight Obamacare, etc; We must raise ex amount of dollars to impeach Obama. etc;”
    Well, they had 8 years to do something and did nothing. So, America will reap what she sowed.
    Even our military is at the mercy of this evil tyrant. I cannot understand why our military Commanders haven’t done something. Treason is still a crime punishable by execution.

    • Robert James

      We in Texas are and have been prepared. Kinda like Israel. If no one helps them, they don’t care they will go it alone. We Native Texans have the same attitude. Get on board or get outta the way.
      COME AND TAKE IT!

        First shots for freedom by the immortal 32 in Gonzales against the Mexicans, with the little cannon, and the homemade flag (that would be the Come aAND TAKE it Flag). Time to hit the books and read a little Texas history.

      • 5live5

        Sorry Robert, but I don’t use Facebook. not since they allowed a woman to post a home brew for abortion and took down a mans well reasoned argument against abortion. I have no doubt that Texas for Texans is a good group, however.

    • danhspoonhourdc

      I too have been getting those “phone calls” asking for money to fight this menace in Washington and my reply is: “Why must I pay money to my reps or some political organization when they( the congress and reps in Washington) are being overpaid to work for us as it is!” We elect them to protect and provide for the security and prosperity of this nation and they can’t even do that! Then they have the gall to ask their constituents what they should do to solve our problems! If they don’t know; then they should resign their post and let us put someone in office who knows what the heck to do! I’m livid with this kind of pusillanimous attitude.

  • VirgoVince

    • TheSunDidIt

      He hates all of us because for all but a few, the OATH we took was serious and we meant it. We also know there was not “end date” due to expiration of term of service. The oath was for life. To support and defend the Constitution of the United States.

  • 2War Abn Vet

    Obama is handling this as he did the sequester, during which this administration wanted the citizens
    really feel the maximum pain of frugality and plead for more wasteful spending.

  • madhatter46

    I’m 67, a Vietnam Marine, and couldn’t ever conceive of calling an American President a mean, petulant, feckless, tawdry, incompetent, mountebank but Obama is a disgrace for his disrespect to Americans who were willing to die for their country. Should have known when he lied about Benghazi to America, the United Nations, and especially the four grieving families showing his total lack of personal character and honor. Have you no shame Mr. President!!

    • maddad1947

    • Mike Allen Abk

      welcome home. Semper Fi.

  • maddad1947

    Obama is doing anything and everything any way he can to cause disruption, dissatisfaction, and disunity in this country. Why? So he can declare Martial Law, suspend civil rights, “officially” then the Bill of Rights, starting with the 2nd Amendment, confiscation of all privately owned firearms, then the Constitution, followed by NO Elections, and probably ending with banning the legislature (House and Senate) and a Declaration, by Executive Order, that he is President for Life. Time is short he has to do this before the big elections in 2016, when legally he CAN NOT run for President again. Get ready people. Be prepared.

  • mbnick

    NEVER forget the 4 things Obama despises are our Military, Fox News, our Seniors and small business…and Reid agrees.

    • Robert James

      Can I add one other? America……

      • mbnick

        True, he also recently started despising “White Hispanics”.

      • Robert James

        Ha!

      • larrylunts

        What is a “White Hispanic?” I though that all Hispanics were mixed-raced descendants of American aboriginal tribes, and European Spanish conquistadores; who conquered, oppressed, raped, and slaughtered them in the 15th century, and afterwards. So wouldn’t it more accurate, to describe Hispanics as mixed-race Spanish/Asian, which would just be a kind of subset of “White”?

        Is there another whole other group of “Black Hispanics,” that I that don’t know about, who are descended from Native Americans and their Black African slavemasters, who are totally responsible for the selling their own people into slavery; rather than the total innocent white European people who did nothing worse than provide free-market transportation and distribution services in those early years? I get so tired of people trying to blame bad stuff on white people! Capitalism rules!

  • OwlCreekObserver

    This has nothing to do with funding — it costs more to fence off the site than it would to keep it open — but it has everything to do with creating some high visibility pain that The Current Occupant can blame on his political enemies. It worked for Slick Willie and it will work for this guy as well.

    • snowmaggedoned

      Not so sure it will work this time around.

      This Prez is much more polarizing than even Slick Willie. Plus Harry Reid has become despised and is complicit in this hostage taking of our government.

      In 1995-96, it was clearly the Democrat President versus the entire Republican dominated House and Senate.

      Obamacare is hated by 70% of Americans. The people are on the side of the Republicans this time. No doubt, Obama and Reid will TRY to spin it to blame the Republicans. Can’t work too well when they won’t accept the law for themselves and only for the “little people”.

  • Proudamerican

    I would be willing to bet considering who we are dealing with, that this slimdown’s details of who continues to be funded and who ceases to be funded is exactly along party line just as all the other
    BS that comes from oblama and his band of thieves and liars!

    • ONEPISSEDOFFCITIZEN

      The House should DEFUND PERMANENTLY all of the currently defined “non-essential” jobs, as they are “non-essential”, by obama’s definition!
      If they took this route, it would make them (the executive) stop shutting down the parts of government that “hurt” the “people” the most as a political ploy in these cases.

  • TexRancher

    Obama wasn’t raised as an AMERICAN, he wasn’t educated as an AMERICAN and he doesn’t understand AMERICANS! Further, he has no respect for our military past or present!
    But then, what can we expect from A Kenyan Born, Anti-AMERICAN, Anti-CONSTITUTION, muslim who hates this country and the principles on which it was founded? (This opinion formed by watching his own words and actions!)

    • Robert James

      Could this be another brother Native Texan? 5th generation here TexRancher, Loud and Proud!

    • TPM

      Tex … I couldn’t have said it better. The WWII Memorial is essentially a commemorative, open air sidewalk. Obama (via his minions) had park employees erect barricades to keep WWII veterans out. What did this cost?
      How embarrassing, for our military to have to refer to this clown as Commander in Chief.
      To me, he’s a Commander in Chimp … and I’m tired of his perpetually flinging his monkey dung at conservatives, the people who built this country.

      • Robert James

        and he sure doesn’t understand we Native Texans……………….

BUILT WITH OUR TAX DOLLARS!!!! How are park rangers going to stop visitors who assemble En Masse to visit these Monuents????? They aren’t, unless by force……

    • maddad1947

      Obama was not raised as an American but perhaps some Americans can invite him to a party and raise him.
      He should be charged with treason and just about every other crime in the book, Tried, found guilty as charged, then sentenced to be executed, then executed by hanging, Slowly hoist him up don’t drop him down.
      I have studied a lot of History, and EVERY President has had his own set of detractors who find fault with anything and everything he did. But I feel very sure that there has NEVER been a President with so wide a base of detractors, and people who just plain do not like the SOB as there are with Obama. My guess is; that the Secret Service has to have been working over time to keep this President safe, I think the Secret Service should be part of the Government shut down.
      I don’t know of anyone, personally, that likes, trusts, or believes this person; in spite of what the media has had to say about this to the contrary. And I think I have even seen signs that the media is beginning to distance itself from him and his cult following.

    • fisherman

      I read a few articles not too long ago that when the oscumbag’s family were at Martha’s Vineyard for vacation this summer, that they were very rude to the secret service people and any other military people that had to accompany them. This was noted by residents of Martha’s Vineyard. This king and queen have no respect for anything American. These veterans are from the “greatest generation that have lived” and fought for us so we don’t speak Japanese or German. He’s despicable. Where’s Lee Harvey Oswald?

    • Robalou01

      But he sure learned how to hate AMERICANS

    Did you really expect king barry to otherwise?? The military has always been abused by liberals out of fear. They know what side the majority of Vets and Active Service will come down on

  • Jimmy Cooper

    Anybody that has ever been to DC can tell you these sites stand there unattended they had to spend money to go and find and erect these barricades! This is more of the same crap they pulled when they closed down the Peoples House!

    • buck80ish

      Exactly .
      This is a show designed to pressure Congress to cave to Adolph Obama.

    • larrylunts

      You might think these sites are unattended, but try to spray paint your name on the Washington Monument, and you will find out differently, very quickly.

        Were there not several monuments vandalized with green paint by a mentally ill woman a short time ago?

      • bill

        Larry, had you ever been there?

  • pysco

    Obama, will make this closure as Painful as possible, as he did with the sequester he created, this is all about politics. The President and the Democrat controlled Senate said they won’t negotiate, therein lies the problem, they haven’t passed a budget in the last 5. years, and won’t even negotiate on that. Two issues here: 1. If you refuse to make a budget, don’t fund anything, until they will negotiate. 2. The Constitutiional Law, Indeficiency Law (1870) which states that no bill will be passed without funding. Fines are not funding, and with SCOTUS declaring that Obama Care to be a tax, then you have taxation without representation issue. Plus forcing people to buy items they don’t want or fine them, is in fact extortion…..

    • maddad1947

      No you need to fund a lot of things BUT you do not need to fund the Salaries for the Executive Branch, as well as for the Senators and Congressmen. Now as for the Congressmen all they really need to do is ear mark the dollars for this or for that and leave the rest UNFUNDED. Yep that would be a lot more work for them, might even have to put in a 40 hour work week.

  • RBlakeH

    Why should Obama care about the Vets unless it is a photo op for him. The SOB couldn’t even visit the grave sites of the hero’s that lost their lives in Europe by visiting them in France EVEN when the French President wanted him to. Now he is jetting to Indonesia for trade meetings? What in the hell do they have we want? What do they buy from us? They steal technology or get it free from the libs so why is he going when we are so short on money and he has a crisis on his hands? This the rabid SOB and his damned family out of my white house and let them live with their kind (thugs) in Chitcago.

  • Captain Sarcastic

    What a bunch of Bull$#!t drama to push some political agenda.

    Cowards always fear heroes. Obama being the biggest (worst?) coward ever to occupy a office of honor has shown his bitter resentment towards this nations heroes. I am a disable vet and not a hero, but I have been honored to have served with many who were. Obama offends my sense of honor. He offends our founding fathers with every breath he takes. It is time for this nations heroes to rise up and show this cowards what heroes look like.

  • Bart Smith

    I’ve got another senseless example of how the government is using the shutdown to punish the public. Here in Hatteras, the beach is considered NPS property. So, they’ve erected barriers and posted law enforcement to tell people the beach is closed and keep people away.

    To keep the beach open, all they have to do it get out of the way, which would cost absolutely nothing. Instead, they’re spending untold amounts of extra money putting up barriers and chasing people away.

    They have literally drawn a line in the sand where private property meets the national seashore. Use the beach all you want on the private side, cross into the NPS side on the same beach and you’re trespassing. Apparently, the public can’t be trusted to use the beach without Park Service supervision even though 99% of this country’s beaches are used ever day without their “help”. Ridiculous!!

    They think it will show everyone how much we need the NPS. To me, and everyone else around here, it’s strong argument to be added to a long list of others for taking away NPS control.

    Obama is spanking us because of the Tea Party. They stood up to him and he is upset. Poor Imperial HindA##!!!!

  • maryatlanta

    How dare Obama deny our vetereans the opportunity to visit “their” memorial! This from one who NEVER served! He is not fit to be the Commander in Chief.

  • jr61020

    Obama has no real affiliation to the military as he never served. He does not understand God and country first over everything else. He certainly lacks patriotism for our flag and the men and women who served and died fighting for our country. For these reasons it was no big deal to close the memorials when vets wanted to attend

    • Ewade

      He has no legitimate affiliation to this country either, jr, since he’s never “served.” He is actually , legally, still a Kenyan resident and a British Subject.

  • larrylunts

    If an exception to the government shutdown was made for these vets, where would it stop? Other exceptions would be demanded for other national parks, monuments, and institutions; resulting in massive problems with safety, security and sanitation, since there would be no guards to provide safety and security, and no cleaning staff to pick up trash. Worst case scenario: huge crowds of unpoliced people in the national parks, polluting the streams, leaving their trash, and falling off cliffs, with no rescue personnel available to help; and huge crowds of unpoliced people in the Smithsonian, helping themselves to our national treasures, with no security to stop them. Can you imagine the fights that might break out between people fighting over the original Declaration of Independence, or moon rocks, or antiquities, or paintings in the National Gallery?

    When you shut down the government, you also cause lots of unanticipated consequences, and inconveniences for people who depend upon government services. Blame the Republican domestic terrorists in Congress for this, not the President

    • houdini1984

      Larry, I take it you’ve never visited the WWII memorial. There is no safety/security force in place during normal business. I was fortunate to accompany my dad on Sept 14/15 to D.C. for his HonorFlightRochester trek.
      What you are completely missing is that the actions the NPS police are taking is COSTING money rather than saving any!

      • larrylunts

        They may not be that obvious, but they’re around. And there also people there who are picking up trash. In September, I spent a week touring the beautiful Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks in Utah and Arizona. Thank Goodness for the timing. I wouldn’t be able to do that now.

      • bill

        And still dodging the questions? Have you been to the DC mall area? Why is the NPS spending money to close the memorials?

      • larrylunts

        Yes. I’ve toured D.C. and its major monuments twice in the last three years. The last time, I was in the Capitol Dome, wearing an “Indiana” T-shirt, when a Congressional aid for my Congressman popped up from out of nowhere, and gave me four passes to the House visitors gallery!

      • snowmaggedoned

        Seeing the monuments and understanding and appreciating their significance are two different things, Larry.

      • bill

        That ribbon is tucked between his butt cheeks… Coated in KY Jelly!

      • larrylunts

        Do you think that your implication about the President of the United States having homosexual intercourse in Chicago bathhouses adds anything to the national discourse about international political problems? I’m sorry, but I don’t quite get the connection.

        I’m working on a book about toxic right wing websites, so I would really appreciate any help you could give me. Could you please explain, particularly about how this implication might support your country, and indicate your loyalty to it? Or not?

      • buck80ish

        This will be a “toxic” right wing explanation Larry , so brace yourself.
        Some of us read our Bibles, (shocking , I know). In that bible it describes homosexuality as an abomination.
        If a person were to believe in the homo bathhouse exploits of the potus, they might refer to it because it is a sign of a low moral standard , according to Christian beliefs.
        Now ,I realize that many do not share these beliefs and many feel that it matters not , but to many of us , it harkens back to Sodom & Gomorrah.
        Also , many like to selectively edit out of the Bible those things that are written in clear opposition to their gay lifestyle.

        So, a person that is loyal to their country , may well find those in government that support the homosexual agenda as tearing down , and dismantling the moral standard of our nation, and even though they may not have anything personal against individuals who practice that lifestyle, still find those supporters of it occupying positions of power in our government as subversive , and truly destroying the moral foundation , which we as Christians believe , is the only foundation that God honors.

      • larrylunts

        Yes, Leviticus does describe homosexuality as an “abomination.” But it also condemns eating pork, crab, clams, oysters, fat, and many other foods; approves of human slavery; forbids getting haircuts or trimming your beard; forbids handicapped persons from worshipping God; demands a death penalty for adultery, or for using God’s name in vain; forbids sowing two different kinds of crops in the same field; demands animal sacrifices; and forbids wearing clothing that mixes linen and wool cloth. And that’s just a few of the things that Leviticus considers to be “abominations.”

        Do you also agree with all of these other condemnations, as well? Or do you agree with the New Testament sentiment that Jesus Christ, who came into the world in relatively modern times, might have come to provide a softer, and more tolerant; and, I don’t know, more “Christian” approach to faith; might have been on to something?

        Jesus wasn’t very popular with the Jewish hierarchy of the Hebrew church of his day, who were making good money peddling that Leviticus stuff. Whether you believe that every bit of (whichever version of the Bible that you read) is the received word of God, or not; you have to remember that the message is often somewhat slanted by the prejudices of the scribes who recorded it. And the scribes in the age of Leviticus lived in a brutal, primitive, culture barely out of the stone age. I would hope that we might have made more progress towards civilization since those days.

      Larry, you are an idiot. Nobody is saying anything about opening buildings that, obviously, have tobe closed. All of these monuments and memorials are wide open. Why shut them down? I’ll tell you why. TO MAKE A POLITICAL SATATEMENT! Those monuments and memorials are usually open 24/7 and the DC police do a pretty good job of guarding them. Those MEN who wanted in to see the memorials to the wars that THEY fought indid no damage, and weren’t going to do any damage. They wanted to pay their respects. Do you even know what that word means?

      Open your eyes Larry, the persistent psuhing to the left by the Dems, particularly by a socialist President put us in this situation. The Repubs (inspired by the new folks in office) took a stand for morality and the good of the country, despite the consequences. This growing government must stop, over-spending must stop, and if the House has to use the ACA and the debt ceiling to leverage their position then so be it. Let’s start by making Congress use ACA and stopping Obama from making illegal changes to the law (like exemptions and extension).

    • Carol

      You jerk! My father, (WWII) vet, fought for this country for 4 years, only seeing my mother once,and missing the first 4 years of my brothers childhood. You selfish piece of sh…t! These vets sacrificed for you and your freedom. Most will probably never visit the memorial again. So you think they should wait around at their age until the Democraps stop playing their games? You should be ashamed. You are wha is wrong with this country. No respect, no allegiance, no intelligence.

      • grammy23

        Right there with ya!!! “Military Brat” myself. My father (retired Master Gunnery Sgt) Korea. My mom raised 6 kids without a husband because he was gone most of the time overseas. He hated Obama before he died last year. I’m almost glad he’s not here to see the destruction of our country that he fought so hard for.

      • Carol

        Sadly, my father passed a few days weeks after Obama was elected. I requested absentee ballots for him and myself (because I was out of state staying with him in the hospital) in plenty of time and miraculously they never showed up. First time ever, we were unable to vote. One of the last conversations we had was him asking who won the election. Tithe disappointment on his face, I will never forget. He would be so sad and disappointed to see what this country that he fought for has become. We need to keep up the fight in our parents memories. Stand strong!

      • jimbo124816

        Grammy23 and Carol,
        Sorry for your loss of your fathers.

        You will be sorry to hear that they both probably voted for Obama after their passing. Democrats go to the polls and vote in the names of deceased people.

        Your cat and dog probably voted for Obama also. And Mickey Mouse probably voted hundreds of times for Obama.

        And Carol, your absentee ballots were probably delivered to the local Democrat Party headquarters. Don’t worry. I’m sure they filled them out for you…by checking off all democrats from Obama on down.

        That is the reason why we need to present a picture ID of some sort whenever we vote.

      • Carol

        Exactly! You’re absolutely right. How many people have I seen on TV who have admitted they voted 5 or 6 times! In 2012 it took me 3 times to get the voting machine to register my vote. I know how to use the machine…it would not take my vote! Wonder how many people walked away thinking they voted for Romney when actually their vote didn’t count.

    • grammy23

      Can you exaggerate just a little bit more please….not. Only your low-life liberals would take advantage of a shutdown to go into parks and purposely pollute them or litter. People who visit these monuments are usually there out of respect. But I am sure your ilk would take advantage of the situation and graffiti and make it look like the Republicans are to blame. I live 20 minutes from the Colorado National Monument and our local police and fire (EMT’s) respond to accidents and injuries, not the FEDERAL GOV’T. People are free to hike, bike and drive the Monument without escort any other time. BUT..even our local Federal workers whined that tourists were turned away resulting in lost revenue and the poor tourists would go without. ALERT if you ever visit….there is a main gate where you pay to visit or camp and there is a route in on the other side where you drive right on in because some people actually do live up there.

      larry lunts,

      So glad you enjoy living in a police state. Do you enjoy going into national parks, monuments, and institutions, and throwing trash all over, polluting the streams, leaving trash, and falling off cliffs? Do you enjoy going to the Smithsonian to steal national treasures? And those fights over who gets to keep the Declaration of Independence, moon rocks, antiquities, and paintings must be hard on you.

      But guess what larry, we Conservatives don’t do that, just your friends on the left or in the gutter, do that.

      Because of the unintended consequences, Obama should have thought more before shutting down the government. His plan all along was to make this painful for people, so that they would pressure the Republicans to go along with Obama’s socialism.

      When is it “domestic terrorism” to force the democrats to abide by the Constitution and to prevent a Marxist/Muslim takeover?

      • larrylunts

        No, I don’t do any of those things. And most people, as individuals, are pretty nice people. However, unpoliced crowds have a whole different mentality. That’s why there were nearly 5000 public lynchings in the United States from 1882 through 1968.

        It’s domestic terrorism when one party holds the full faith and credit of the United States hostage, creating the potential for chaos in financial markets, and risking the onset of a new Worldwide Depression; simply they want to sabotage a matter of law which has already been settled, in both houses of Congress, and by the Supreme Court.

      • buck80ish

        Segregation was “the law of the land” and many civil rights abuses that went along with it .
        Laws can be enacted in error , and often have been, and when it happens , it is the peoples duty to bring pressure to enact reversal of those laws.

    • Pablo Descartes

      I blame dimwit libs w/ tiny manhood like yourself.

      • larrylunts

        Why is it that the first place that most conservatives on sites like this go to, when they disagree with someone about a matter of politics, is to suggest that the person they disagree with is homosexual, or has a tiny penis, or is a woman, or is a coward; despite any evidence to support those contentions; rather than to actually address the issues involved? I don’t know, but a psychiatrist might call it “projection.” That’s a psychological term that you can easily Google.

      • Pablo Descartes

        This is a conservative site and you’re obviously not. Why not share your opinion on mother jones or other lib sites? Your only purpose here is to distract or harrass those with whom you disagree. If you came up to me on the street as i was conversing with those of a like mind, and interjected yourself for this purpose, I’d say go away, as others here.

      • larrylunts

        I guess, I’m just trying to reach some souls, who may have different opinions that me, but who may be as equally as sincere as me, in my love of this country. And that I’ve never seen any point in “preaching to the choir,” as most of the people on the site seem to want to do. Is the only thing you really want to do is to rant to people who agree with you 100% on everything?

        Don’t you want to stretch your mind, and talk with people who may have a different point of view than you, but who love their country as much as you? And I don’t comment on liberal sites, where people might agree with everything I said, because what would be the point? That would just be masturbation.

        The biggest reason that this country is going down the tubes, is that people who have different opinions, have lost the willingness, or the ability; to actually communicate with each other, and to try to work together, to solve common problems. That’s why I’m here. And that’s why I’m willing to take the insults about me, and nasty and inappropriate name calling, and all of the ugliness (if you don’t know what I’m talking about, just read all the comments on this site from the beginning).

        Ok, that being said; go ahead and call me a coward, and a Communist, and a traitor, and a homosexual with a tiny penis, and compare me to Hitler. Go ahead. It’s okay, because I know you want to.

      • Pablo Descartes

        Listen slick, the reason America is going down the tubes is We the People were tolerant to the point that the socialist agenda managed to sneak it’s way in to our gov’t, schools, many aspects of our American life. Now that your leader barry the kenyan is in power, tolerance of the founders America, the dogma, & economic principles that made this country great ceases & We the People are finding ourselves living under an increasingly tyrannical gov’t, the obamination.
        Don’t tell me you love America, or you’d support the constitution; rather you support barry shredding the constitution. What you’re supporting is your dream of a new socialist utopia that replaces the founders America .
        We are on this conservative site to discuss, pass info, and yes, say our piece in the company of other conservatives, and no, we don’t always agree. If i wanted to discuss with libs I’d go elsewhere, as you should do.
        I hate what you are doing to my country by voting for this socialist scum TYRANT, bathhouse barry! So yes, get on your knees & worship him.

        You started it by calling Patriots like Cruz domestic terrorists, for that i call you SCMUCK!

      • larrylunts

        Well, that’s fair enough. Calling the Tea Party House Republicans “domestic terrorists” was certainly divisive, and I apologize for that, although I did not think I called out Mr. Cruz by name. That did not contribute to constructive dialog, at all. Can we both agree not to call each other names?

      • Pablo Descartes

        We can be civil. Just stop screwing the country up by voting for kenyan socialists who haven’t been properly vetted. The fist time was forgiveable, i also hoped it would be good for race relations, but if you don’t want socialism, if you support the founding principles, then your ‘backin’ the wrong horse’.

      • larrylunts

        Well, then maybe you could also drop divisive terms as well, like “screwing the country up” or “kenyan socialist.” Can we possibly discuss political issues without using politically loaded terms?

      • Pablo Descartes

        If you don’t appreciate reference to barry as a kenyan socialist, then as the country, we are divided, as he was born in kenya and is a socialist. I will not be politically correct when it comes to the truth as that is how the imposter TYRANT was able to sneak in the first place with the race card.
        There you go Larry with the typical liberal guilt trip, which is why i have no desire to discuss political issues with you, which is why i frequent sites as Conservative Byte, so i can discuss the issues without dealing w/ lib trolls as yourself!

        NOW GET!

      • larrylunts

        Please, don’t stop, when we seemed to be making such progress towards a meaningful conversation. I do understand those references, but I don’t agree with them, as they seem to contradict easily available evidence that President Obama was born in Hawaii, which is easily supported both by his birth certificate, and by contemporary Hawaii newspaper records.

        And, yes, I am familiar with disagreeing arguments with people who purport to have contradictory evidence (sometimes referred to as “birthers,”) like Orly Taitz, and Sheriff Joe Arpaio. But I find their arguments unconvincing. Most have been based on criticisms of Obama’s officially supplied and certified documents, from the state of Hawaii, in Adobe pdf electronic format, that purport to show that when this document is opened in Adobe Photoshop, that it seems to show evidence of “layers,” which would suggest forgery.

        Oh, please. I am a graphics arts professional, and I have been using both Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop (and most of the other programs in the Adobe suite, for more than 25 years.) So when I heard this charge, I created a new image, entirely from scratch, without layers, from a photo I had taken with my own camera, in Adobe Photoshop. And then I created a new vector image, from scratch, without layers, in Adobe Illustrator. And then, I saved both of these images as pdf files. And then, I opened both of these pdf files in Photoshop, and I found that they both displayed the same mysterious layers that the “birthers” insisted was proof of forgery, in case of the Obama birth certificate. My conclusion, as a graphic arts professional: the birther clams of forgery are completely baseless.

        So, if the birth certificate forgery claims are baseless, what are the birthers left with?: That somehow, Obama’s relatives, or some left-wing cabal sneaked into Hawaii in the 1960s to insert birth announcements into the local papers, in the possible event that a black man would be elected to the Presidency of the United States decades later? Somehow, this seems doubtful. And the “birthers” have not advanced any convincing evidence to counter the newspaper evidence.

        So, I ask you. How is your charge of “kenyan socialist” supported? Please, just give me an ounce of proof, so that we might continue this conversation.

        To tell you the truth; I would only feel better, if even one person actually, civilly, addressed the issues I was talking about, and gave me polite reasons, and provided actual evidence to support their points; rather than just screaming and shouting and ranting; and calling me nasty, sexualy-charged names because they disagree with me.

        At one point, Pablo Descartes actually came close, but then he devolved back into full-on “Death to America!” mode. Now I understand how Obama feels when he tries to negotiate and be reasonable with those nutjobs in the Middle East, who believe that women should be stoned to death, because they exposed an ankle in public. We in the USA have many of those kind of people, too, and many of them are on this website, unfortunately.

    bo rejected thse men because these men are real MEN. They fought for this country to keep it free and bo wants to destroy this freedom and to do so, he can’t be nice to his enemy, the REAL man, the one who are not cowards, do evil things to get what he wants and etc.

  • Amy

    Awww poor wittle obama, people aren’t bowing to his demands so he’s going to throw a temper tantrum and punish us. I guess he forgot about the resolve of the American people, (since he’s not an American, how would he ever understand it?) and especially the WWII vets, who walked into the memorial yesterday anyway!!!!! All I can say is way to go vets!! EVERYONE needs to have the same attitude!!! I have a lifetime charter membership of the WWII Memorial as we were financial contributors, so the way I look at it is, I OWN a piece of that memorial, and if I want to go into it, I will!!!!

    • SEBtopdog

      We ALL own a piece of it, Amy. And we own every memorial and public building in Washington DC. The people who can get there may resort to the same type of civil disobedience as those WW II vets. Bravo to them!

  • disqus_Eh7aK6ca5A

    Since Obama doesn’t know what it is to be a veteran, he has zero conscience when it comes to turning Veterans away from visiting their war memorials even if he fails to get his bills passed. How old is he? Five? Still wearing the short pants, eh?!

    • missnellie

      Right on!!!!!!!!!!!!! The entire Obama family never fought or defended this country via the military. He has NO idea what our veterans mean to the American people since he is not an American in my opinion. Between he and Reid and the refusal to SIT DOWN and TALK…I have flushed them further down my toilet. The veteran is right….there are fewer brains in Washington than ever before. Obamacare is the basic cause of ALL THIS CRAP… a program voted into existence when it wasn’t even read. HEY PELOSI….we still cannot grab all it contains. Thank you to those show tore down the barriers…tear them all down. THIS IS OUR COUNTRY…how about Congress and the President go on furloughs!!!!!!!!!!

    • grammy23

      Obama does not know what it is to be Patriotic, period. He holds no allegiance to anyone or anything. Notice how he punishes US citizens – he closes parks, monuments, threatens veterans and military with lies about not getting paid, he cancels patriotic parades. He thinks patriotism lies only in a pin worn on a lapel. We will not give up on our country and we will defend it against dictators like him because we carry our patriotism in our hearts.

This sorry embarrassment for a President. I don’t want to live under socialism. It makes me sad to see what my country has become and I fear even more for the future. I’m in my 60′s and probably have too many good memories about America, I guess I need to start forgetting and try to enjoy what little is doled out to me in the future. “Thank you sir, may I have another?”. “Come on alzheimers, deliver me from the pain of my memories”.

      • bill

        Message is heard loud and clear.

    • snowmaggedoned

      Don’t give up, yet, Steve.

      I believe our best years are just ahead. More and more Americans are starting to wake up to what is happening to our country.

      Remember….the Progressives have been infiltrating our society and government for over 100 years to get us to this sorry state of affairs. It took a severe national economic crisis in 2008 to make the Communists come out into the open and show themselves so we now realize what we are up against.

      A huge cadre of Americans suddenly got a jolt of realization in 2009 when the trillion dollar stimulus and then the five hundred billion dollar omnibus packages were passed through without any input from the Republicans on the Hill. It was as though all the Republicans were not there and didn’t represent ANY constituencies. Our voices were totally disregarded and that none of us existed.

      We then knew what kind of insidious people were now in a position of power.

      It will take time, but we will recover and come back. FDR kept this country in a severe Great Depression for 15 years with his socialist policies. In fact, the Congress after WWII was so turned off by the dictatorial presidency of FDR that they wrote the law for term limits on all presidents after him.

      FDR stayed in power for four terms and kept the country on her knees financially and then threw us into war. Americans had to give up and sacrifice on a daily basis to adequately feed and supply both the Army and the Navy on two war fronts. They were rationed on every thing from sugar to rubber car tires.

      We can only pray that Obama doesn’t attempt a complete takeover of the country and proclaim martial law. If that happens, then he will be empowered to follow through on his promise of a “complete transformation”.

      If you want to see your country return to normalcy, then get out and work for a great candidate (vet them very carefully) as a volunteer in both 2014 and 2016, Find a job you feel comfortable doing and be relentless in carrying out your tasks to help that person get elected.

      If you can’t volunteer because you work long hours or are handicapped, donate to that candidate to give him or her the tools to be able to win.

      Serving your country comes in many ways…..some through joining the military and others through community advocacy.

      Yet, working to help put good honest men and women in elected office is just if not more important for your nation now than serving in any other way.

      So, the Republicans are actually, with a straight face, trying the sell people on the idea that the shutdown wasn’t their fault; that they only did it reluctantly, because the President and the Democrats made them do it.

      Ah, schoolyard logic. I remember it well from Ricky Joyner, in the second grade. He was two years older than me, and weighed, easily, three times as much as me. (He was a little dim, and had been left behind from moving on to the third grade–twice.) When Ricky would see me coming, he would shove me–hard, in the shoulder, and demand my lunch money. If it I wasn’t quick enough about getting it out, he would always scream the same thing, “Don’t make me HURT you!”

      It’s good to see that he’s alive and well, and a regular contributor to this website–even if it is under a pseudonym.

    Veterans. Who needs ‘em? Well, citizen, if you care about freedom even a little bit, YOU DO. Veterans have given much to earn freedom FOR YOU. They toiled, they were separated from their families for YEARS, they bled, and too many died. All the veterans I know feel like their whole experience has been cheapened, even mocked. Why? Because of YOU, Joe Citizen. You took the easy road. You were too important to serve…too busy to learn history and even to pay attention to candidates. You voted for the ones that ‘gave good speeches’. You had no idea what they said, but it sounded cool when they said ‘whatever it was’. So now, you’re waking up and you want your freedom back, and you’re wondering when the Veterans are going to win your freedom back…you know, the freedom you pissed away. I’ve seen it in your posts, “The Veterans of Foreign Wars ought to go to Washington and run Mr. Obama out of town”. Really? Have we not done enough for our country? You want more? Well, Joe Citizen, in spite of your demonstrated lack of respect for the freedom we won, Veterans will likely LEAD THE WAY when you are finally ready to SERVE YOUR COUNTRY and march in Lock-Step with patriots. Mr. Obama, your shameful action at the WWII memorial will not go unnoticed.

    If those WWII vets were young again, they would be marching on Washington, not to protest but to take the government back. They would lead us, those of us that are just waiting for the other guy to do something.

    • ste1021

      There was time when Americans stormed the beaches of Normandy and thus began the Greatest Generation. Then Obama was elected and so began the Food Stamp Generation.

  • MrLogical

    It’s really quite simple:

    Obama and the Democrats (the party that, over the past 50 years, has been taken over by ‘progressives’ – a.k.a., Communists) hate America and they hate the military. Oh sure, they will publicly proclaim their ‘respect’ for our military men and women and our veterans, but that’s merely for the sake appearances and for the purpose of scoring political points for the so-called moderates who believe that the Democrat party is still the party of Thos. Jefferson, who stood for state’s rights, not for an omnipotent and all-consuming central government that we now have, thanks to … Democrats.

    Make no mistake: B. Hussein Obama, our nation’s 2nd (half)black, homosexual, Muslim and Communist president wants to see America taken down several notches, and wants to see the federal government fulfill the socialist ideals of some of the most evil world leaders of modern history: Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mussolini, Mao, Castro, Chavez, Kim and yes, even some of America’s past presidents of the modern era: Wilson, Roosevelt, Truman, Johnson, Carter and Clinton. Each of them in their own way sowed the seeds and laid the foundations (and them built upon those foundations) for the all-consuming welfare state we now have – one that will only grow larger and more burdensome under the leadership of B. Hussein Obama and his Democrat enablers.

    If you love America and want her restored to her former stature, remember this in 2014:

    No more Democrats – even if they’re only running for dog catcher.

    • mathis1689

      Well said. I would add that for Obama to respect those brave men who put their lives on the line so long ago he’d have to be a man himself. He might be a human male but he is most certainly NOT a man!

    • Jim Whitmore

      You are so very correct.

    • larrylunts

      Who was our nation’s 1st (half)black president?

      • MrLogical

        Tongue-in-cheek reference to what many Democrats believed was America’s first black president: William Jefferson “Bubba” Clinton. ;-)

      • larrylunts

        Can you point me to any genealogical information that supports your contention that President Clinton is (half}black? Granted, given the long history of informal sexual mixing between white Americans of the rich slave-owning classes, and their back African slaves; there is probably not a one of us Americans, black or white, who doesn’t have mixed racial genes in his or her DNA. (Indeed, the middle name, Jefferson, suggests that Clinton may be related to Thomas Jefferson, who was known to have fathered a number of mixed-race children with his mistress, his mixed-race slave Sally Hemmings.)

        But to be (half) black, one of Mr. Clinton’s birth parents would have to have been black. That would be either William Jefferson Blythe Jr., who died shortly before Clinton was born; or Virginia Dell Cassidy. (Clinton later assumed the surname of his stepfather, Roger Clinton, Sr.), So was that black person William Blythe, or Virginia Cassidy; and can you point me to the documentation for that?

        I assume, that as “MrLogical,’ you are ready and eager to do this. ;-)

      • larrylunts

        Duh. Yes. In fact, I am only a few years younger than Bill Clinton. I have personally met him, and heard this joke from him, firsthand, and also enjoyed a live saxophone solo. And I actively, and enthusiastically, campaigned for him, both in 1992 and 1996. If the Constitution permitted it, I would have voted for him for a third term. But I don’t get your point.

  • WardMD

    What’s SAD (and blatantly obvious) is that Obama had to SPEND MONEY (to send people out to put up the barricades) to CLOSE a section of the National Mall (an OUTDOOR, FREE TO THE PUBLIC) – World War II Memorial!

    What a DOUCHE-BAG!

    It COSTS the Federal Government NOTHING (zero, zip, NADA) to keep the OPEN AIR Memorial OPEN!

    Is it going to get significantly DIRTIER without people paying their respects to our fallen men and women of World War II?

    This is NOTHING MORE than Obama’s DELIBERATE ATTEMPT to make this shutdown as PAINFUL AS POSSIBLE (with the hopes that the inconvenienced public will blame the Republicans)…

    WELL, THIS ONE, is squarely on the shoulders of President Barack Hussein Obama!

      The barricades were probably put up by existing Park staff, before they went home because of their furloughs. Believe it or not, there is a cost associated with keeping even open-air parks open, and it probably much higher than the cost of closing them. Security, sanitation, a method of dealing with health emergencies, and so on. Simply shifting these costs to state and local governments is cowardly, and disingenuous, at best.

      • WardMD

        Have you BEEN to (or even seen) the WWII memorial?

        It’s OUT IN THE OPEN (for God’s sake)…

        It’s NO DIFFERENT than the grass from the Capital to the Lincoln Memorial – it’s OUTSIDE, in the rain and wind and dirt and snow…

        Should they shut down the streets, because they aren’t paying for the street repair or the sweepers to clean the gutters?

        Frankly, I suspect that the Administration made it VERY CLEAR that Obama wanted to make the shutdown as “painful” as possible (just as he said regarding the sequester, and just as the IRS KNEW how President Obama feels about Conservative Groups – without a specific “smoking gun” memo FROM the President himself [remember, there's NOT A SINGLE DOCUMENT from Hitler where he orders the extermination of the Jews (but everyone KNEW his feelings on the matter)])!

      • Johnnygard

        The Vets and their escorts can handle their own security (they did it before, and they are still willing to risk their lives in DC), sanitation is expensive after you libs have an event – after Tea Party and Conservative events, the places are left clean, and health emergencies are handled by paramedics that I would imagine are still on the job.

    The WW II Memorial is an open air venue, as are all the parks in DC. So the Feds had to go out of their way to barricade the entrances to keep these heroes, that may not live long enough to come back next year, out. But all the rat-eared, thin-skinned b*stard wanted, was to make these Veterans hurt, by denying them access to a Memorial dedicated to their heroism.

        It doesn’t matter what color he is, this American-hating, narcissistic marxist isn’t fit to shine their shoes, and the fact that you agree with him, neither are you.

        The empty suit despises American heroes, because he despises Americans, their accomplishments and their success. Something he knows nothing about, because he got where he is on melanin, not hard work. He’s a slap in the face to all hard working, successful blacks, especially conservative blacks, for which you have nothing but scorn. So who’s the real racist, now??

        BTW, be careful calling us “gods”, you’ll lose your membership in the Dog Eater, god-king adoration cult and your thin-skinned messiah will have the IRS audit you and NSA purge your hard drive. “Back up” much?

      • PeaverBogart

        I used to work in a shoe shine parorl and I’ve shined more shoes and boots than Obastard ever thought about. He isn’t fit to shine anyones shoes.

      • larrylunts

        You’re missing the point. This isn’t about shining shoes. It’s about persistent racial stereotypes; like the idea that the only appropriate jobs for black men, are shining shoes, or being butlers, or Pullman porters, or caddies; or other relatively low-paying jobs where they are in a position of subservience to the white ruling class.

  • FallingRoc

    The Obamination sure is acting as a dictator…ignoring the Constitution…ignoring the other branches of government…ignoring the laws…
    I sure hope everyone is PREPARED for what is about to happen!!!!
    Preserve and Defend the Constitution

    Freedom NOW and FOREVER!!!!

    What I would love to see is all his secret service walk the hell out on his butt and leave him in the white house and no one come to his cries for protection, and hand him a ticket to Kenya one way.

      He can join his terrorist Uncle when he arrives in Kenya.

        Would Your reference be to malik obama the muslim brotherhood fundraiser?
        bathhouse barry can’t hide anymore, We the People see him for the enemywithin that he is.

  • savage24

    He must have been bending over backwards while he rejected their request. What an ass.

  • Larry Cowden

    Not just any ass! A muslim c——- sucking yellow striped one that holds our nation in contempt for daring to defy his plans. And in the process he wants to strip away our rights and give this country over to illegal immigrants. He has violated several laws and deserves to be impeached.

    • Karen Frazee

      I agree.

    • PeaverBogart

      Impeached hell, he needs to be hung for treason.

  • Bill Northrup

    Let’s see: The various memorials in the D.C. area, all under the National Park Service, is SHUT DOWN on October 1 due to a FEDERAL GOVT SHUTDOWN, caused by, most will say, the Republican Party, and you’re blaming the President because you can’t get in?? I noticed the one veteran in the video had no problem putting the blame where it belonged. What’s with the rest of you?

  • Phd Marty

    The idiot in charge and cohorts are only shutting down areas they feel will hurt us the most and think they can get away with. They picked the wrong group with the WWII vets. Now time to follow their lead a keep on going!

  • billwhit1357

    Too bad these Vets most likely won’t outlive the Kenyan Homosexual Muslim Maggot in the Oval Office. I am sure they would all love to line up and piss on Obama’s Grave, I know I will if I outlive the Traitor Sewer Scum!

    • larrylunts

      Do you think that your rhetoric contributes to constructive dialog about important political issues, or just want to rant to like minded people who agree with you about everything?

      • Pablo Descartes

        Larry shut the hell up!

      • larrylunts

        Gosh, is that the best you got? Why are you so afraid of continuing to have a conversation?

  • Smokey

    To dishonor and disgrace the service these men and women gave to their country is nothing short of a slap in the face. Thank you all for your great service and to Steven Palazzo’s & staff

  • Pablo Descartes

    Is there a conservative site where a libertarian constitutionalist can post & read other posts of like minded Americans without the lib rhetoric (lib trolls)? They have taken over the media, taken over my America, they’re attempting to take over my life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness, and now they stalk/troll on Conservative Byte!

    There is no other land to pilgrimage to as America is the New World, so it’s here in America We the People must STAND & FIGHT FOR OUR AMERICAN DREAM!

    This TYRANT obama must go!

    • larrylunts

      Why is so important for you to only read posts of like-minded people? Some might suggest that would indicate an intolerance of ideas different than your own. I’m not discouraging the idea of considering views other than your own; in fact, I celebrate it as evidence of a healthy and active mind.

      • PeaverBogart

        larrynutz, You are a traitor of the United States of America.

      • larrylunts

        Well, here we go again with the “funny” distortions of my name, and the unexplained ad hominem attacks. Why don’t you also call me a Communist, and a socialist, and a homosexual, and a lover of Hitler, and a “corksocker” (whatever that is), and all of the other things that you guys love to call people when you don’t agree with their political opinions? Go ahead, it’s okay. Get it out of your system. I know you want to.

      • parlayer

        None of your business, and Cause he want’s to. if you want an active mind, ask yourself those questions. and think about what your saying???? Strawman = Others. such proof “others say” bull crap. larry name names or shut up.

  • Ann Rand

    That figures…. Do you think he cares about the veterans ?

    • John Galt

      Hi Ann.
      The answer to your question is no.

    Disqus apparently deletes and rearranges conversations on this website, arbitrarily, from time to time. I’ve seen my posts disappear for days, and then reappear, near the top. I suspect that this might something to do with popularity of the post.

    A few guidelines: if you use”naughty” words, like “f*ck,” or sh*t, or the like, and you don’t use the asterisks; your email messages will be rejected. If you insert a direct link from another site, it will be rejected. But if you can hide those links, in some sort of combinations, in clever combinations of characters that spell checkers will not detect; they just might go through.

  • sovereigntyofone

    When we have a president (using the term loosely here ), that wipes his feet on the Constitution every chance he gets, or by passes it to suit himself, why would is surprise anyone that he would pulled something dirty and underhanded such as this on the Veterans. If you look at Obama’s attitude about our Veterans old and new, the old adage “Actions speaks louder than words “. When Obama’s Department of Homeland Security passes around a memo to Law Enforcement and other departments that ” Veterans and returning veterans may be considered possible Home grown terrorists ” it kind of gives you a hint at the animosity toward our war heroes. Then we have Obama’s first term in office when he forwarded the idea that the military should pay for their own medical. Which by the way got the VFW up in arms over his statement. Obama hates every thing good about traditional United States and those that fought and died for it. These men took an oath when they joined the military and put their lives on the line for this nation, you, I, and the Constitution of the United States. Obama’s opinion of our constitution ” The Constitution is nothing more than a charter of negative liberties ” (Obama’s words).
    In my humble opinion, the war memorial is for any and all veterans whether it be the WW2 memorial or the ” WALL ” for those that fought and died in Vietnam, IT BELONGS TO THE VERTERANS and the Taxpayers that paid for them another words WE THE PEOPLE….NOT YOU THE LIEING, FRAUD that sits in the Oval office.
    Just my 2 cents worth.
    God Bless our veterans, old and new, and may God bless the Republic of The United States of America.

    • f8tule

      When we have a POTUS is correct.. I am still waiting for POTUS #44

    • PeaverBogart

      soverentyofone, You are so correct. We need to get all American Veterans together and storm the “Black House” and take him out. I’m a life member of the VFW, DAV, American Legion, And the Oathkeepers. Let’s Gitter Done.

  • John Galt

    No surprise here! The veteran in general, and the WW2 more specifically, do not support Obama; therefore they will be punished.

    • f8tule

      And they do not scare easily either..gotta love those hard-nose vets.. We should all take a lesson from this one :)

      • PeaverBogart

        I’m a two tour Vietnam Veteran and I will fight these socialists till my dieing breath.

  • homer1057

    I REJECT him!!! Wholly and Emphatically!! Insensitive and uncaring! These men served and would have given their lives and yet………sickening what this govt has done!!

    • jag57

      As I said before, these heroes are the reason he isn’t speaking German.

  • dave.

    This person who some call president, is nothing but a big baby. He has the mentality of a spoiled eight year old child who immediately plots revenge when he doesn’t get his way. What this individual, who some call president, has done is not only tyrannical, it’s just plain “bottom of the barrel” stuff. It’s a great example of how liberals wear their emotions on their sleeve and how they use it as an excuse to abuse the power they are borrowing. This person doesn’t deserve to hold the position that he does now. Why hasn’t this dictator been run out of office yet? If something isn’t done soon, it will become progressively harder as time goes on.

    • Ann Rand

      he’s cute when he is mad… LOL… Don’t you just love to see him mad? I do !

      • Observant_One

        A petulant girly-man when he gets tweaked. A disgusting example of a USA president.

  • Jim Turner

    Why would Obama care about a bunch of old, white, imperialists? He hates everything about them

  • jo johnson

    This black basturd “thing” in Washington is an insult to God & mankind……..AND HELL IS WAITING !!!!!

    • jag57

      Sure ain’t going to be 72 virgins waiting.

  • BITEMEHARDLEFT

    Thats because Obama is a Muslim Scumbag and hates our veterans and military.

  • southie55

    All Veterans past and present should never forget the treatment of Our Vets this so-called President has done. At this point Nov.2014 will be Our most important time for sending the message to the Demorats that support Him.

  • v steve

    b hussein o, The Punisher, Hitler was also a punisher. Do we really want this kind of person in the Presidency. You decide.

    • jag57

      I said before the 2012 election, voters had a choice between whether they stood for liberty, or tyranny; look at where we are today and you decide. I didn’t know all there was to know about this guy, before the election in 2008, but I knew enough to know I DID NOT want him running our Republic. I hate being right.

      • v steve

        I have dicided. Where is our John Wilkes Booth or our Lee Oswald, or at least our Sirhan Sirhan in our country`s time of need?

  • pguild01

    WW II was way before Barack Obama, so instead of reading History books and listening to tales from those around at the time of WWW II, Barack Obama reacts as an undisciplined child would. His behavior is beyond pathetic. Peter Guild, Quincy, MA.
