How much do you want to bet Sarah Palin’s “Storm The Barrycades!” today panicked the Obamaphiles?

The ONLY thing that matters to them is imagery, and that would definitely be an image they would not want to see on the evening news.

What the heck is "First Amendment activity?"

Do I need to bring a sign to "protest"?

The Democrats and Obama think that there should be special ZONES for 1st amendment rights. Outside of these zones, we’ll use the 2nd amendment.

They really stepped in it and they now know it. They were about to find out what a real rebellion feels like from a political, and not from a media version.

This is why they blinked... or got their asses kicked is more like it...

A new wave of veterans were forced to move barricades at the WWII Memorial in Washington Wednesday morning to gain access during the government slimdown, a spokeswoman from Sen. Jerry Moran, R-Kan., told FoxNews.com.

Jay Carney wouldn’t know what the First Amendment is if you shoved a copy of it up his red ass.

And I’m being polite.

As a former card-carrying journalist, I’m ashamed of the POS saying anything about the First Amendment when his Obersturmfurher, Herr Obama, has done nothing but trample it during his whole regime, using the IRS, the EPA, and National Park Service, and even the military leadership to destroy it.

Carney’s next real job should be cleaning toilets at Leavenworth.

The Rats internals aren’t good. They are now going to throw a bunch of crap against the walls to see what sticks. In other words, they know that they need to make a deal to open up the government, but what can they get Boehner and McConnel to cave on?

My bet? Amnesty vote and end the shutdown for 1 year delay for personal mandate on Obamacare. In that case everyone wins...but us.

I heard on the radio this morning that the MLK Memorial was wrapped up tight.

Wonder how long that will last?

Sorry,
Although I love the Vets and what they did this week...
THIS is about access to all of our national treasures!

Obama just did what he is best at... creating and appeasing another victim group.

They haven't blinked.

The Department of the Interior has made “an accommodation for the Honor Flights and will grant access to the World War II Memorial,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney says.

What if I and my daughter want to visit the memorial are we still banned?

This isn't blinking, it's SOP for Democrats. It's normal policy to grant 'special rights'.

Open it up and keep everything open that can be. Stop playing games and come to the table Obama. He created this crisis. Elections matter and the Dems lost the House. We won. Deal with it.

This must mean some of their rabble rousers who are not at work and have nothing to do are planning to protest the Obama shutdown.

The whole Barrycade thing is a losing effort.

Closing down that monument was a major public relations disaster for the Obamanoids. And they made it even worse when they threatened to arrest any veterans who crossed the Barrycade. The seething outrage coming from the general public was so thick it was positively radioactive. They felt that heat coming off the street. They didn’t blink, they cringed.

Wasn't the WWII Memorial created using private donations?

Yes, answered my own question: WWII Memorial

From the Website: The memorial was funded primarily by private contributions. The fund-raising campaign was led by National Chairman Senator Bob Dole and National Co-Chairman Frederick W. Smith.

Senator Dole, a World War II veteran seriously wounded on the battlefield and twice decorated with the Bronze Star and Purple Heart, was the Republican nominee for president in 1996 and the longest-serving Republican Leader in the U.S. Senate.

Frederick W. Smith is chairman, president and chief executive officer of FedEx Corporation, a global transportation and logistics holding company. He is a graduate of Yale and a former U.S. Marine Corps officer, and serves on the boards of various transport, industry and civic organizations.

The memorial received more than $197 million in cash and pledges. This total includes $16 million provided by the federal government.
