Veterans On A Rampage
October 13, 2013 at 5:35 PM
WASHINGTON - Thousands of people converged on the World War II Memorial on the National Mall on Sunday morning and tore down the barricades blocking it off, protesting the closure of the memorial during the federal government shutdown.

Beginning at about 9:30 a.m., Sens. Mike Lee, R-Utah, and Ted Cruz, R-Texas, as well as former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, were among the luminaries in a crowd that chanted "Tear down these walls!" and sang "God Bless America" as well as other patriotic songs as they entered the memorial, which has been closed since the government shutdown that began Oct. 1.

Tractor-trailers headed down 17th Street toward the Mall, blaring their horns. The Metropolitan Police Department blocked off the street, prompting the crowd to head up the street, shouting at the police to move their vehicles.

Palin said that closing the memorials was disgraceful, and that President Obama "could be here today, saying 'Yes, we can tear down these barricades."

Cruz said that President Obama was using veterans as political pawns in the shutdown. Lee shouted, "The sons and daughters of the United States of America are meant to live in liberty."

By 11 a.m., the group had headed back to the memorial, and dozens congregated around World War II veterans, shaking their hands and thanking them for their service.

Later in the morning, veteran Mike Lauriente was accepting handshakes from demonstrators. He served in Sicily and French Morocco, and declared the memorial, which he was seeing for the first time, beautiful. "The spirit that I see here is overwhelming."

    Yes I agree president Obama and congress should tear down the barricades for our veterans and open the government for all Americans.

    There are so many Americans suffering because of this government shutdown.We obviously need government and cant pick and chose what to open and not open.Just open the whole government to all Americans.

    The whole shutdown is disgraceful and so unnecessary.

    If Barry REALLY cared about the American people..(even JUST the ones that voted him into office), he'd negotiate. 

    First he said he'd talk about a partial, temporary debt ceiling increase, when it was offered, he refused. He's should be behaving like the POTUS, not a pissed off mafia general. 

    I'm not sayig the GOP are behaving any better. Both sides need to stop finger pointing, whining, and do what they're paid very well, to do.

    They are on a rampage (I'd say 2 of those fit). I just happen to fully support them. I say rampage away!!!


    noun
    1. violent or excited behavior that is reckless, uncontrolled, or destructive.
    2. a state of violent anger or agitation: The smallest mistake sends him into a rampage. The river has gone on a rampage and flooded the countryside.

    verb (used without object)
    1. to rush, move, or act furiously or violently: a bull elephant rampaging through the jungle.

    but they weren't acting violently in any way. Nor were they destructive or reckless and uncontrolled...so no...not the word to really use. Because its use of words like that that stir up all the BS Lame stream media lovers. The people who would deem our Vets as "terrorists or anarchists" and so on.

    I'm sure the police the confronted with the trucker situation thought rampage would be a good word.

    No matter... Our government does view the veterans as terrorists. Just like they view the majority of Americans as terrorists. I'm sure they are preparing for widespread rampage (in all true definitions of the word). It will likely happen in a short time.
