    Is this administration just a bunch of children?

    How many here have been to DC? I have. There is no legitimate reason to block off the various outdoor exhibits other than Obama and company choose to act like children. Same with Mt. Rushmore. They are spending more money just to be assholes.

    It's a Republican shutdown. It's a shame this small group of Cruz novices, who don't understand how the federal govt works, was allowed to force a shutdown by the leaders in the House.

    But it's a losing game to blame the shutdown on Obama. For one thing, what is shut down is the decision of bureaucrats, not Obama. And it's a thing decided ahead of time, although it can be altered a bit, I think. But "nonessentials" are decided at intervals, by people in the govt, for occasions such as this. They didn't get together in a smoke filled room one night and decide what to shutdown. It's predetermined, for the most part. But I'm sure Cruz researched this and knew that, right? I'm sure he knew veterans establishments would be shut down, some veterans wouldn't receive health care, children with cancer wouldn't be able to get treatments, children who rely on federal subsidies for food would have to go hungry, etc. He knew all that, right?

    But you either have a shutdown or you don't. You don't declare a shutdown, then oops! decide to UN-shutdown some things that are unpopular with your constituents, picking some people as more important than others. Are veterans more important than children with cancer? Are healthy veterans who want to visit a memorial more important than ailing veterans in dire need of health care? There's a story about this in the Bible. It's about Soloman and a baby. But I'm sure Cruz knows that story, right?

    I guess you failed to read the thread, dunno

    Obama and the idiots are spending more money to close open exhibits that is spent when they are open. Has nothing to do with the shutdown.

    Or, you know, they have upkeep costs and congress can't incur those costs while there is no funding to pay them.

    Not without a blatant connotation which clearly does not represent what I believe, or what is even reality.

    If you offer a poll that goes as follow

    option A: Yes, they should be ashamed!
    option B: No, And I support the "assholish" activities
    option C: They are assholes!
    option D: Why aren't we always just assholes?

    It's just simply not a legitimate poll. Your own bias towards the subject has diluted any credibility to the conversation that could take place in this forum. What's the matter about having a real conversation about it? Is it too straining upon your mind?
