World War II Vets Ruin White House Theater

Whenever the government is “shut down”, all the fifth assistant briefcase holders keep coming into work while the White House orders the shut down of popular sites like the Statue of Liberty.  It is all theatrical bovine droppings.  Yesterday some World War II vets refused to play by the White House script:

 

Wheelchair-bound elderly veterans pushed aside barricades to tour the World War II Memorial Tuesday morning, in defiance of the government shutdown which closed all of the memorials in the nation’s capital.

The four bus loads of veterans — visiting from Mississippi as part of a once-in-a-lifetime Honor Flight tour — ignored National Park Police instructions not to enter the site as lawmakers and tourists cheered them on.

“We didn’t come this far not to get in,” one veteran proclaimed.

The scene was both emotional and comical at once. After it was clear they had lost control of the situation, Park Police officials stood aside, telling press that they had “asked for guidance on how to respond” to the breach of security

  • Nota bene, Obama is not shutting down his primo/first-class-all-the-way trip to Indonesia. What about the children?!?!?!?!

    This topic is covered at “Never Yet melted” blog. It’s called “Washington Monument Syndrome.”

    The lying sacs of excrement immediately shut down the highly popular “stuff” like the Washington Monument and terminate firefighters so as to “play” the uninformed near-majority and get the desired borrow and spend increases; or, in this case, that and the wreck of the health care system.

    It is unadulterated spucatum tauri upon which thrive Obama-worshiping zombies.

  • It is the same ploy as public schools getting rid of football teams instead of really looking at budgets.

  • Vile person our president.

  • This is an utter disgrace.

    How much longer are the good American people going to allow this sort of travesty, which is perpetuated through a sycophantic news media and an ideologically blinded minority?

    Obama simply has to go – he is destroying America. He said when he was elected that he was going to fundamentally change America – and he has almost succeeded.

  • “Spucatum tauri”. That is priceless, T. Shaw, and it opens up the possibility of using a couple of other expressions: “spucatum equii” and “spucatum pulli” (which latter is the category I would use to define the attempt to blockade the WW2 memorial).

    For particularly massive and egregious examples of GovCo’s over-reach and incompetence, perhaps we could use “spucatum ceti” (or maybe it’s “cetae” — I’m not much of a Latinist), which being interpreted signifieth whale dung.

  • So here is my question. What is the consensus of the Catholic contributors here as to what course of action should be taken? Are you in agreement with continuing the shut down? do you feel that conservatives will be able to accomplish the goal of stopping Obama Care? Do you think our government will suffer irreparable harm? Just asking as a conservative if I am too stringent and narrow? Are we actually harming people?

  • Nope, no one is being harmed as essential and inessential functions are still being taken care of. For myself, I would be in favor of a real shutdown of the Federal government for a time, which might wake more of the people up to the fact that the days of funding the government out of thin air are drawing to a close.

  • The shut down is more about delaying or defunding Obamascare.

    October 17, or so, starts the debt crisis dance.

    Anyhow, feral US borrowing and spending are hugely unsustainable.

    What is unsustainable must collapse.

    The end will be universally calamitous.

    Pacem! Take a deep breath and contemplate this scenario.

    The annual interest due and payable on the national debt waxes greater than the amounts of annual tax revenues. If interest rates on the 10 yr UST double (to historic norms), the debt service would consume nearly all tax revenue. Then, the US won’t be able to spend any Federal Reserve Notes (backed by US T debt). The entitlement state/Ponzi scheme will collapse. No Medicare. No SS. No pensions. Chaos will reign.

    It won’t matter that some have hoarded gold and silver. All that will matter are guns, ammunition, and whisky.

    Stay the unsustainable course and dire consequences will come.

    Social justice!! KUMBAYA!!!

  • Being a coward, the Commander in Chief of “all the fifth assistant briefcase holders” did not dare to barricade the Federal Interstate Highway System and close it to the public for the duration of the so-called government shutdown. Rather, he and his lieutenants preferred to push around some 80 and 90 year old men.

  • Notice that the Obama administration took these actions out of spite, to cause pain and harm.
    They rented barricades to close off unattended parking spaces.
    They recalled furloughed Park Service employees to harass veterans and other citizens.
    They did this because they have the power to do so, and they want to rub this power in the faces of those who question that power.

    This is like the IRS and the Tea Party groups, but with a broader target.

    What makes anyone think that such cruel, spiteful people should have control of your health care? What makes anyone think they would not use that power wrongly, if.it suited them.or amused them?
