The Government Shutdown is a Deliberate Lie!

By Rick

It was designed by President Obama, or someone close to Obama, and if so, with his blessing. It was done to destroy the Republican Party, by hurting the public by shutting down only those public parks, monuments, and memorials.

It is a gigantic sham! The government is not shut down. All internal workings of the federal government, not open to the public, continue as usual. Of the 4 million public employees, only about 800,000 were furloughed, or so we were told by the press, quoting public officials. Can we believe anything anymore we are told by any of those in charge? Or by the mainstream news coverage?

The senate Democrats, especially Harry Reid, blames the so-called shutdown on the Republicans. Oh, is that so? The political parties have no constitutional authority to shut down the government, only elected officials in charge of government can do so. So, it has to have been the president who has shut down the government.

The contrived shutdown has hurt many innocent citizens. Home owners on government land were ordered by wardens and rangers–who were working, to vacate their homes. Families of service personnel killed were denied insurance benefits. Parks and events supported by private donations were closed. World War II veterans were not allowed to visit their memorial, until they rushed past the barricades, aided by some congress men and women. And many others were hurt as well, too numerous to list. And some business, we will learn, will close as a result of this corrupt maneuver by the Democrats.

I am waiting to how these corrupt officials react when thousands of trucks begin to descend on Washington DC.

The Million Vet March on the Memorials

By Onan Coca 8 October 2013

Apparently, watching members of the Greatest Generation getting manhandled while they tried to visit the war memorial that was built to honor them and the friends they lost during WWII, was just too much for some members of our veteran’s community. A group calling itself the "Million Vet March On The Memorials" is planning a march on Washington, D.C. to take place on October 13, 2013 at 9:00 am. “We are all military brats, current and former military spouses and some veterans. We cannot express how utterly disappointed we were that our Greatest Generation were being used as political pawns in the ongoing government shutdown and budget crisis. This should never be the case. Read more at Million Man March.

As a veteran of the Korean Era who can not walk without aid, I wish I could go with them. The act of closing the open air memorial, was a deliberate act to hurt as many people, in this case WWII vets, and make the other political party look stupid.

I hope this jumps up and bites the president and his men. Time will tell.
