"Undying Gratitude": Obama Decided to Block Free and Open Public Access to Memorials

Blocking access really shows our "undying gratitude". Obama indeed  has forgotten disdain for their sacrifices for our country as well as for us citizens...

"The Obama Administration has decided to block access to public memorials on the National Mall as a result of the government shutdown. Like its decision to end White House tours when the sequester cuts took effect, there is no rational reason for this. The Park Police, nominally in charge of monitoring these spaces, isn't even effected by the shutdown. Shutting off access to these sites is gratuitous and petulant. 

The memorial is in a public space and is open 24/7, with almost no oversight from Park Police personnel. (Who, by the way, are exempt from the government shutdown.) 

Having lived in DC for 18 years, I can tell you, the WWII Memorial is simply an architectural structure in an open public space. There is no official "access" to it. There are no guards. It's a building in a park. Yet, the Obama Administration tried to block veterans from viewing the public memorial, even after hearing about the planned visit." 

Flynn is correct. Having spent an entire week in DC, many of the memorials are open-access in parks, which by the way, don't require any personnel.  

Obama had to make up an entrance and then make up barriers then keep them closed, as opposed to just shutting a gate or a door already exists as access to that venue. In other words, Obama takes away open and free access and then claims its now closed, when it never was closed, even at night.

This closing off what was is open and free 24/7, making an artificial entrance, isn't about the government shutting down. It never was. Its definitely not a  need, either, but rather its about the dictatorial bullying of Obama to shove his fist (and wannabe power) in the face of Americans citizens and its war heroes.
