    as to the last part, its ridicules.
    Again you ignore security, you are wrong about them normally being unwatched.. If it was a statue of Ted Cruz you be glad it was guarded I bet.

    Let's pretend keeping government monuments open doesn't require staff. Let's pretend.

    government has been shutdown 17 times in 40 years, what is the excuse for not closing them 17 times before?

    now.... your beginning to act like NIMBY.

    Perhaps they will investigate how we have funds to keep this website up:

    Let's Move!

    And not this one:

    Amber alert

    Could be for any number of reasons, up to and including the IT staffers in that area were deemed "non-essential".

    Department of Justice...'non-essential' vs. 'Lets move'...really? About how plausible does that sound to you?

    I also see you are towing the liberal line with the false talking points. It was the Dems that shut it down.
    I see you do not understand. these are things the government provides for us. So shutting it down means that these things are not available to us. That is what the shutdown means. It does not mean we let the republicans go about life as normal doing what they want to because of this. You want the shut down now you face the loss of some of your government provided things. If it is that imprtant to you then feel free to fund the whole government and tell your reps to do that. I am quite fine with you taking a hit because of this. You and the veterans do not need to be provided something from the government that you are railing against. Maybe you will figure out that shutting down the whole government over not getting your way on one issue was a really stupid idea that screws us all, but I am not bothered that you feel pain over a decision that the idiots you back with a sycophantic fervor.

    There should be no negotiations on funding the agreed upon functions of our government. You have had 40 votes to get rid of Obamacare and it is still there, now it is time to fund everything we voted on doing and funding. You do not get to kill off programs you do not like by simply not funding them when they have been democratically voted on and established by the majority, and they have been upheld as constitutional by the court. You have to get a majority to take out obamacare, and it is not right for it to be taken out by a minority. No there should not be a negotiation on that in any way shape or form. I am glad Obama and the dems are standing up to you, and I hope they continue. If they will not i will make damed sure to vote for someone who will stand up to your people and tell them they are in the minority and the people overwhelmingly want this.
