    You stopped reading just before the "unless." As in, "unless the ACA is delayed." Reading comprehension is your friend.

    Not a Democrat.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

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

    My god, the lengths people will go to ignore reality is amazing...
    I don't recall the Republicans opening their side of this fiasco by demanding a full repeal in exchange for passage of discretionary funding.

    Do not be a weasel. The Republicans are not refusing to fund the govt. How done know this... They're not individual spending bills, you know, actual appropriations bills just as we did for 200+ years. And the Democrats refuse to even consider that.

    So your qualifier of unless is meaningless because the Republicans are, in Fact, proposing to fund the government.

    Everything you just said about the Democrats applies equally to the Republicans. Both sides have a hardon over the ACA, neither side is budging, both sides are pointing fingers.
    Unlike democrats - republicans are NOT all in cohesion....

    Yeah it may apply to the fascist authoritarian RINO' but there are plenty of is who are NOT democrats or progressives that are also not "RINO's" We're libertarians, classical liberals, Tea Party, real republicans, moderates etc...

    Just because there is opposition to democrat philosophy or ideology doesn't mean we're all "republicans."

    Quit acting like it's "either or" when it's not..... The media does it's best to portray two options of political philosophy when there are many...

    If it matters I hate these big government authoritarian loving NeoCons who continue to side with the big government authoritarian progressive liberals in an attempt to "save the party and save face" with their alleged constituents and pals from the bottom to the top...

    They're no better than the elitist rich corporate loving progressive liberal clowns in government like Pelosi, Kerry or Obama... They're all owned by someone and they're all doing others bidding in an attempt to keep their power and their power base.

    How many times has the house introduced legislation to repeal the ACA? That was their starting point. When it came to passing a CR that became defund and then morphed to delay + repeal what Reid himself calls the "stupid" the tax and then to delay...

    I would just add that they're locking people out of what are normally open air monuments. In other words, they're having to erect and man barricades where none already existed. It's cheap; it's vindictive; it's nasty and mean spirited... you know... liberal.

    yep. That's why I asked if people had been there as opposed to the knee jerk defense of all things Obama.

    all of the park rangers are not furloughed
    only most of them
    those on duty are deemed essential to protect the park assets

    The lockdown of monuments is nothing more than a petty act of a pathetic petty small minded 'leader'.
    yep. one jim demint. the fellow from the heritage foundation who is orchestrating this fiasco via cruz
    don't furlough federal employees and then complain when the federal employees are not present to do their jobs
    should be obvious. apparently not to teabaggers

    Its a cheap way to deal with the situation, an angry Park Service ranger in Washington says of the harassment. Weve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. Its disgusting.
    an unnamed source
    show me an email or memo from the park service to its staff stating this, and then you will have something. until then, its just more reich wing propaganda

    buy more tin foil
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
