    Typical of a religion haters view of things.
    We ask people in the service to give years of their lives and may need to put said lives at risk, yet lets jerk them around over issues of faith.
    Welcome to 2013 I guess.

    Yeah, it is called making people feel the pain of the shutdown the republicans have forced upon us. I am perfectly fine with that. It should be painful. You should not use the budget to try and remove things you cannot remove otherwise. They cannot get Obamacare voted out and it is not OK to attach it to strip it from everything else. We fund the programs we pass and that is it. If the republicans do not like it they can try to repeal obamacare through the proper channels. Yes, I am perfectly fine with you being bothered because you do not get your perks while you pitch your fit. I totally agree with Obama making it hard on the crying baby republicans in the house. They need a good time out. Let them cry it out.

    I'm starting a pool for how many posts parroting the GOP line before the inevitable "I'm not a Republican" speech.

    So things the right wants funded: White House tours (OUTRAGE!), Blue Angels, National Parks, religious services (as long as they're not for Muslims)...

    Then they'll go on about fiscal responsibility

    The law doesn't ban all voluntary serivce only voluntary service which could lead to a claim against the government for future compensation.


    Which wouldn't be the case in this for instance

    So yes, my original post is correct. He is a punitive, snot nosed SOB...
    You did not read your source well. Exceptions can be made...by congress. The president does not have that authority. So again, you are complaining that the president is following the law.

    Or it could be because of the law. I know, fact checking is hard...

    Just asking.
    They wired a WW2 Memorial shut that is privately funded. It's an open park. They blocked a Vietnam Memorial that is a wall at a park.

    It takes more resources to close and wire shut these sites than it ever did to run them

    Wake up

    You need to be asking yourself why Obama would shut these WW2 vets out of their memorial. Yea we know. Obama is never responsible for anything. He'd NEVER use Government tools for political purposes. Yea yea yea ok Joseph whatever

    Its an opportunity for Obama to let the nation know what he really feels about our vets. Thats what its all about.
