Closed WWII Memorial Opened For Vets

If you haven’t been to the World War II Memorial, I can tell you that it’s on the National Mall, it has no gates and as such is open to the public at all times of the day or night.  So why should a federal government shutdown impact one’s ability to walk into an open public area?  Good question!

Since yesterday, “barrycades” (yuk yuk) have gone up around the memorial, preventing WWII vets from visiting.  Here was the scene today:

The White House’s Office of Management and Budget (OMB) apparently ordered the “barrycades” be erected on a day they knew these particular vets were coming to town!  The vets went in anyway — what is the National Park Service going to do, arrest WWII vets for visiting a WWII memorial?  Nope.  Another example of the Obama crew illustrating the absurd just to make a point.

UPDATE: Go Mark Levin!
