    Neither side is willing to compromise, and this will not end until either someone compromises or gives in.
    Exactly democrats are unwilling to compromise yet prortray themselves as transparent compromisers....

    the park service is following legal advice to make reasonable efforts to shut out those who would ignore the park closing

    The fact of the matter is that what that bitch was doing was wrong.
    exactly. that park ranger excluding non-veterans from the memorial is the equivalent of murdering innocents because of their heritage. incredible

    Actually, Reid has been very clear about the fact that the Democrats would be willing to discuss compromise -- just not while the whole of the discretionary budget is held hostage.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    actually, it was the appeasement of the park service which was gotten wrong. how was the WWII veterans' desire to visit memorial found to be an exercise of free speech while other non-WWII veterans could not enter
    the park ranger was given weak instructions, but she saluted and followed orders. what was she to have otherwise done?

    Ever BEEN to those monuments?
    the federal parks are government assets which must be protected
    they must also not impose a public hazard

    Almost correct. In this context "reasonable" is one of those wiggle words lawyers use when they believe later they might have to defend their advice in court. The park service should have covered their asses and asked for very specific guidance.

    The best course in hindsight would have been to put up barricades with signage saying park closed by order of your federal government. Then step away. Anyone enters, liability is on them.

    how smart is it for a federal employee to violate a direct order to exclude specific persons from the memorial?

    Nonsense. There are no hostages, no guns, only Democrats refusing to talk. And, by the way, the House is offering to fund the rest of the government... But, again, the Democrats will not play unless they get their way.

    Stop drinking the Kool aid...
