    Yes there is such a thing as typical Liberal, just as there is the typical conservative. You can always expect the most stupid of things being said by either group.
    Know the truth and the truth will make you mad, because the truth has no agenda.

    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.
    I do think that's the intention--to make the shut-down as personally painful as possible. Barricading a monument is not the way to play. Neither is this:

    Under political pressure the White House has chosen to reopen the WWII memorial. Obama struggling with how to mesh this with his earlier dumb "public safety" argument. He really shouldn't bother though because the only people who will believe him will believe anything he says anyway.

    Not sure how much political pressure is being applied - but just think: How would Obama and this shut down be turned on it's head if Federal employees guarding an open air un-manned monument to WWII started arresting 75+ year old WWII veterans in wheelchairs for trespassing? That would go over well.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
