That would not be nice...to say he didn't know what the heck he was doing. I'm a little more concerned about children with cancer not getting treatments, though, and the fact that medical research is shut down. A lot of people, incl those who handle the outdoor exhibits, are not going to get paychecks. It's a sad situation. I'm sure Cruz is refusing to take pay, since this was his plan, though. He has money, so he can easily do without a few paychecks, so I'm sure he's declining pay or contributing it to charity.
    More deflection, no surprise that democrats are having to finally learn money does not grow on trees. Obama and the dip****s are forming blockades on roads outside of Mount Rushmore to keep people from even seeing it outside the park. The fact that you support this is very telling.

    I was there before the shutdown after dark and did not see or speak to one park employee. You can't defend this except too say you support whining democrats in DC.

    Tellin' indeed
    I'm now convinced there is no limit to what the Left-wing loonies will support.
    Even they aren't able to be embarrassed by their party.

    Well unless you were quite honestly out looking for employees I don't see this as a very credible argument. Not even considering the fact you have no proof besides your own words.

    Anyone that has been there know there are not 30 parking rangers standing around when it is open. Not my fault you choose not to know about things in your own country.

    The nation’s capital has managed to spare itself many of the supposed troubles of the partial government shutdown.

    More than 661 Park Service police, a fifth of the 3,266 employees nationwide deemed essential, are currently on duty in Washington, D.C. alone, according to a copy of the shutdown contingency plan leaked to The Daily Caller.

    The preponderance of D.C.-based park police makes some sense given that the capital had a large share of taxpayer-funded sites long before the government spending gap. But the figure raises the question of why that number is not sufficient to maintain access to open-air exhibits and monuments, many of which previously had no guards.

    Anyone? Do you know how many park rangers are present at any given time at the national monuments? I'd assume not, just like how you are assuming at this very instant. You chastise me for not knowing something about my country, but you just make blind assumptions about it and believe it to be fact.

    Classification as of 2003 Number Area Visitors

    National Memorial 29 10,588.45 acres (43 km2) 30,559258
    National Monument 78 2,027,864.58 acres (8,206 km2) 22,646,428
    National Park 59 52,095,045.71 acres (210,821 km2) 62,950,968

    Here are a few samples of national park lands and their traffic during the period of a year in 2003. The Lincoln memorial itself is evem the 9th most trafficked unit of park land.

    Way to copy/paste.

    In the past 2 weeks we have seen a man light himself on fire on the National Mall and A women attempted to assault the White house and then presumably make her way to the capitol building. I do not believe it is a strech of any reasonable person's imagination that there is most definitely a potential threat to our national monuments. Also how fair is it for the National Park Service to maintain some lands and not others?

    You did not read the post, there are normally no guards at the outside exhibits in DC which was the point of the thread. There is no defense for the sniveling ass in the white house.
