    I will ask again: On Monday there were no barricades. Why did they need barricades TUESDAY and today if they didn't need them Monday?
    It has been discussed more than enough times, if you cannot fathom that non-essential funding was cut, that maintenance is non-essential, that barricades were erected because the sites were not going to be staffed.......then I don't know what to tell you.

    I am not sure how many times you have to be told this but I will try one more time: THE MONUMENT HAS NEVER HAD STAFF. In fact, until Tuesday it was open to the public 24/7/365.25.

    With Harry Reid & the Democrats refusing anything less than getting everything they want, its their problem.

    I had to laugh at Reids comments yesterday....pass the budget giving us everything we want then we will sit down and negotiate..HUH?

    Do you purchase a car then sit down and negotiate price?
    Do you purchase a home then negotiate on its price?

    The shutdown is the Democrats baby. Its all on their hands.

    There are no named sources saying that they would be subject to arrest, just an "allegedly" with no citations.

    Those monuments - WWII Memorial, Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial etc...they never had staff to begin with...they are monuments...hunks of stone out there to view as you walk by every day, rain or shine, holidays & weekends, at 2 AM too. They never close they dont have staff.

    But now the Obama government has barricaded them off from the public....why? To make the shut down as painful as they can make it to the American people, just as the sequester was supposed to be but wasnt.
