    [QUOTE=Graffias;1062420858]. National Parks and memorials have been closed during previous shutdowns; this is nothing new. QUOTE]

    True, memorials and parks have been closed in the past but still American citizens were never denied access to these memorials and parks during a government shutdown. The only thing that was closed at these memorials were the information centers. There still was access.

    Who put the policy in to allow Vietnam Vets to claim benefits from Agent Orange Oct. 30, 2010??
    This has certainly added to the backlog, but for a good reason..
    We're all better than using the Vets..
    For instance, I've been thrashed by fellow Dems for calling Cantor a Cancer since the election of 2008..
    Whether I am right or wrong, this kind of sh!t by me is also out-of-line..

    I sincerely doubt you had much of a problem with the OWS folks violating laws.

    The Blaze has some good pictures posted at their website. The veterans took down the 'barricades' around the WWII memorial and delivered them to the White House.
    A small number of police dressed in full riot gear showed up along with some mounted security. The crowd proceeded to take down the 'barricades' at the Lincoln and Washington Monuments also.

    Looking for deserving people, look towards Vets and their immediate families. Ask Hannity to step the **** up, or Cheney or Bush or Obama or Reid. Don't give me this **** about memorials. It is far, far, far, far, from political. Leave real Americans out of it, the rest of you - civilians who haven't done jack - **** off and shut up.

    Those protestors were protesting to get their "bonus" for fighting in WWI, which would of been given to them in 1945, But given the circumstances of the depression, they needed the money now not later.

    Now, the veterans simply want access restored to THEIR monuments and King Obama is doing what he can to stop them.

    So, the Million Vet March had about 200 angry white guys, some carrying Confederate flags, and some with the flags of the militia group "Oath Keepers"
    On Friday the planned trucker shutdown of DC had approximately 30 trucks all spread out, causing absolutely no shut down.
