    I am glad that these vets got to visit their memorial, and glad that no one turned this into an ugly scene.

    Me too, but with another layer of barricades being erected this morning I can hear the Harley motors revving all over the region.

    I am too. There never should have even been a story here in the first place such that we are expressing our sentiment that they "got" to do anything.

    Obama's the president. We already know "painful."

    You must have stronger rum than I'm used to.

    It is sad that one cannot differentiate essential services (security) from non-essential (maintenance) staff....or realize one is still funded while the other is not in a US govt "shutdown".

    Oh...ps....this is not unique to a particular administration.

    Agreed. Cut the meat and hide the fat. And make it as painful as possible for the public. Are the White House tours back in operation yet, or do Obama's priorities deem his visit to Brunei and Indonesia more important?

    That's a shame...those Honor Flights are an awesome way to say thank you to the Vets. I've been to a couple of the flights when they come back home and those guys deserve to get access to the memorial.
