    This is rapidly becoming my favorite rightwing meme. Next to the teleprompter and vacation meme, it's the goofiest yet.

    Of course it costs money to run monuments... For upkeep, policing the areas, etc.

    The administration didnt choose what places get to keep open and which ones close.... Its not like when the clock struck midnight a document went to Obama and he got to check which services the federal gov provides get to remain open and closed...

    Uhh yes they did. Did you not read any news source or anything and they listed which gov services remain open and which ones get to close.

    I think in general the whole gov shutdown is stupid.

    The Dems shut down the Government.

    And he can't tell the difference between "Monuments" and the "Government".
    Are you STILL pretending that government monuments aren't staffed?

    Oh for fun!

    This is such a wonderful talking point. Pure teabaggery.

    Somehow, someway, the tea partiers always get to the No True Scotsman fallacy.

    If vandalism is the concern for closing the state parks, please explain how somebody could vandalize the ocean.
