Each passing day of the contrived Government shutdown brings a new revelation of how unworthy Barack Obama is be called either a leader or the Commander-in-Chief. He does not give a damn about America and our heritage as a nation. All he cares about is whether he can gain political advantage. His decision–and it is his decision alone–to shutdown open air war memorials and prevent the veterans of those wars from honoring their dead comrades, is beyond despicable.
This is not about saving tax payer dollars. This is a deliberate provocation by a deranged narcissist. According to the National Review:
The Park Service appears to be closing streets on mere whim and caprice. The rangers even closed the parking lot at Mount Vernon, where the plantation home of George Washington is a favorite tourist destination. That was after they barred the new World War II Memorial on the Mall to veterans of World War II. But the government does not own Mount Vernon; it is privately owned by the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association. The ladies bought it years ago to preserve it as a national memorial. The feds closed access to the parking lots this week, even though the lots are jointly owned with the Mount Vernon ladies. The rangers are from the government, and they’re only here to help.
“It’s a cheap way to deal with the situation,” an angry Park Service ranger in Washington says of the harassment. “We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting.”
The time has come for veterans and patriots, men and women, old and young, to stand up and resist this tyranny. In this petty, vindictive act, Obama reveals that he is unworthy of his American citizenship and to hold the Office of President. The House should impeach his ass over this and Americans should begin rallying at this monuments and challenge the poseur in the White House to arrest us.
