This weekend’s Million Veteran March in Washington, D.C., brought attention to the closure of the nation’s open-air war memorials and other monuments, but another memorial has been quietly “Barrycaded” as well. WPXI reminds us that the open-air Flight 93 National Memorial near Shanksville, Pa., has been closed off to the public as well since the shutdown began.

Much as one family did at a closed national park, someone left a return message at the gate, although whoever tried to write “Obama Sucks” at the top seems to have run low on ink.

  • Tugger – ✓unamused

    All these shutdowns should be notice to get the states to demand that all this “federal” park land needs to be returned to the states. It is absolutely ridiculous that the federal government should “own” so much land in this country.

    • Diane Shearer

      Let’s hope when this is all over people remember this crap. Sounds like a movement, a winning Republican plank to me. A federal government that thinks the can close the Grand Canyon is too damn big.

      • nc ✓s & balances

      • Richard Wayne

        It is a winning conservative plank. Too bad people just don’t care until they are affected. RINOs will sabotage the winning argument. The media (entertainment and news) will ignore the pain or lie about it like they do every other winning conservative argument.

        • LadyLoneStar

        • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (the true one)

          True, the matter is we have to boot the Vichy Republicans within the GOP, Only then do we have any chance of turning things around, and have to remain vigilant of their efforts to regain power in the future.

          Right now it looks as if the GOP old guard is caving in across the board to Reid and Obama just as the debt-limit is to be hit, which is, sadly, what all too many have correctly predicted.

          • Robert Schwemer

            very well said, vichy republicans, the truth will out.

          • reaper_69

            The Republican ‘old guard’ are just stealth democrats who cave to Obama without a thought for their constituents! The RINOS must go, they are at best, worthless cowards, at worst, traitors!

          • Marie Marie

            I have to say, you are always spot on, Snow. I love reading your comments. And I love the term “Vichy Republicans” (very apropos, indeed). I had to look it up, though, to make sure I remembered it correctly (I did), and I’m so glad I did, because I learned a lot more during my research (scary all the similarities between those days and where we are heading). Thank you for encouraging us to *think*!

          • http://wesley.kellams/ old sarge

            The major problem is not the if the GOP caves, the DemoRats are holding them hostage. The DemoRats and osh_i_head has only one answer, my way or the highway. They do not know what it means to negotiate. To them it is written in stone that the DemoRats are the only answer and the rest just has to grin and bare it. Where is the folks up there that know the Constitution? Article One Section Seven states that “All bills raising Revenue “shall” originate in the House.” What do they not understand about the word SHALL means. The bill can be sent to the Senate for their approval but not to make such a bill. They can send amendments back to the House for consideration but CAN NOTMAKE BILL FOR REVENUE.

          You’re absolutely right. The feds would have ruined the Grand Canyon, just like they have done with healthcare, education, retirement, poverty, and all the other things that fall under their “protection”…

          • goldsage

            Actually the feds have taken the Grand Canyon and other parks and added a some comfort to incredibly wild and beautiful places. The lodges are there because of a kinder and gentler fed BEFORE this current administration. Teddy Roosevelt consolidated the national parks in 1933. Yellowstone was the first in 1872 to be protected. So the feds protected sensitive areas. Now it is the current POTUS who is being a tyrant. American’s who voted for him need to be slapped out of their purple haze dream. We should call out the Park Service and tell them to refuse orders.

          • TexSizzle

            Teddy Roosevelt died on January 6, 1919, It was his distant cousin Franklin who was president in 1933.

            I read that Clinton & Bush signed over our National Parks to the United Nations in a treaty that they signed. It is part of the grand scheme called, Agenda 21. You need to research Agenda 21…we need to revoke this UN treaty.

        • 172pilot

          .. and here’s an example to the contrary.. There’s a wildlife park (small zoo, privately owned) near me that found an injured Bald Eagle, and took it in and nursed it back to health while arranging the proper paperwork with the state and federal wildlife officials to be allowed to keep the bird at the zoo since it couldn’t be let free anymore. The zoo was assured that it would be no problem, but at some point was asked to hand the bird over to the authorities while the paperwork was completed. When the paperwork was submitted, they were approved, but then found out that the government had euthanized the bird in the meantime because they had nobody to take care of it. This is the Dumb &%#$ that the government does, with complete impunity, and you say that we’re better off for it..

          • reaper_69

            Yeah there was an animal park that found and treated an injured fawn, when they applied to the wildlife authorities , the government reply was a SWAT team who went in and held the people at gunpoint while they killed the fawn!
            It seems that since Obama our entire government is composed of nothing but scumbags!

          • 172pilot

            As an “essential” govie myself, I can’t say “entire” government.. but, point well taken, and I’d honestly quit walk out the door with nothing but my coat right now if I thought it would make a difference, but they’d just replace me.. Your comment on the fawn.. yes.. same thing happened at the place I’m talking about – They have a group of recovering injured deer that the visitors hand feed, and have now been told that they’re no longer allowed to take any new ones in (they have to call to have them killed) and they will be fined (likely shut down) if they allow the ones they do have to breed, so they have to keep the males and females separate. When they’re gone, no more deer for the zoo..

          • raffaelecafagna

            these scumbags are all over the country

          • goldsage

            I’ve had a similar experience regarding wild life. The feds will put you in jail if you touch some wild life, or if you raised it and cared for it when it was small, they can take it away from you. I personally rescued a rare duck and took it to a vet and they told me that I shouldn’t have touched it and that they were going to euthanize it, then asked me to pay them to do it! I tried to take it back and they refused to let me even try and save it myself. Nuts!

          I don’t know where you live chilegirl but your statement shows your ignorance in the matter. In other words it is patently FALSE. The farmers and ranchers properly managed these lands INcluding the Grand Canyon long before the feds got their nose in the mix. Since then the national parks, BLM lands and other federal lands that were STOLEN by the feds have been misused, mis-managed and misunderstood by fed workers, most of whom got their education out of a book. They lack common sense and experience and are incapable of the ‘JOB’ they have been given. They need to go back to their city digs and leave us that live here and managed these lands for generations alone.

If you choose to follow their path, so be it, but when you finally open your eyes you will get it. Now, if you want to blame RINO’s, well, there is plenty to blame them for, but this shutting down of “fed” land, which in all reality belongs to “we the people” is not the fault of the Rs. Blame your precious president. You need to learn that it’s ok for “we the people” to tell our federal overlords that we are in fact their employers.

      • UpNorth2

        You ought to educate yourself on how the government is run. The Dept of the Interior is under the Executive branch. They closed the monuments and parks and memorials and battlefields. They took their orders from Sally Jewell, the Secretary of the Interior, who took her orders from Obama. So, no, the Republicans did not close anything, as the dems are in charge of the Executive branch.

        • sentry_99

          Also, the government shutdown in the 90’s didn’t look like this? Sure, facilities like restrooms and building were closed but there were no barrycades on open air monuments like this president.

        You forget that this is only a partial shutdown….around 17 percent of the government is shut down while the rest is still up and running. The agencies closed down were chosen to have the most impact on middle class Americans, and then try to blame it on the Republicans in the House. The only reason we have this partial shut down is Obama’s continued mantra of “I will not negotiate!!”

      • 172pilot

        Just to prove a point, I’ll take your assertion that it is not more important than any other park. The point is that because we are out of MONEY, they spent MORE MONEY that they dont have, to physically block people from walking onto open park land, which wouldn’t otherwise cost us any money. It is being done out of political spite, and if you think I’m wrong, then ask yourself why they spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to open up the national mall, set up a stage, and allow a huge protest of illegal aliens asking for citizenship, while less than a mile away, they were stopping 90 year old veterans from seeing the World War 2 memorial, which is also an open air memorial which costs NOTHING to leave open, but costs actual dollars to physically close.

        • Steven S Mellnick

          What is really going to be funny is when next month their allotted amount is reduced by the amount they over charged this month. Planning ahead for the future is beyond most people apparently. Such is our culture. Deterioration of the family unit (ie. 2 parents working), removal the original assistance programs (churches, the neighbors), and severe government over-reach (NSA, AHCA) have all contributed to this situation. Such a sad state of affairs….

          • Tugger – ✓unamused

            What really really is funny is that you think the Obama administration would reduce their allotment next month. Hell, if it were up to him it would be unlimited all the time.

          • Deborah Hallsted

            Ah, not quite. It’s like what happens with some Tribal Members. Enough money to keep one dependent, not enough to “break out” of the Res. I’ve heard more than one say govt “help” is one of the worst things the US has done to them. Fortunately, I also know at least 40 who have taken their benefits to heart, and hand, and really excelled and made themselves a great life. Sadly, the percentages are very small.

          • LadyLoneStar

            Because it’s really hard to get up every morning, commute, work 9-12 hours a day when they make it so easy to be slaves to the government and watch bad daytime TV all day, walk out to their mailbox for their check.

          • LadyLoneStar

            Your list of over reaching government is extremely short, there. LoL

          • Steven S Mellnick

            I didn’t want to create such a wall of text that people didn’t actually read what I put down. So I kept it very very short on what government programs contributed. It was by design, not by lack of knowing. FORWARD! (Over the cliff)

      • LadyLoneStar

        Customers? Did you mean freeloaders? Anyone taking something for free, without working for it, without paying for it isn’t a “customer”, Sir.

        • usaok59

          “freeloaders”? Your definition tells me they are “thieves”. That word comes after “leeches”.

        • Vitiosum

          I agree with you, they are not customers. It sickens me that everyday there are people who are on the govt teat who are perfectly healthy but have been “generational” benefit receivers, all the while people like me who has a severe chronic health condition can get up every day (most days) and go work my hours, which have been reduced and I still manage to survive without the benefits of the welfare. Of course there are some who are in need, but there are so many who are not quite as deserving as they pretend to be. God help me if I get to the point I can’t work due to my condition, but I prepare ahead. This shutdown makes me angry, but what makes me angrier are the ones who don’t care or don’t understand.

    Seriously? Over freaking memorials. People are being furloughed, benefits are being delayed, food stamps denied, all because people who already have healthcare want to keep those of us with pre-existing conditions from having any, but by all means let’s make a HUGE deal out of access to memorials. Yes, sounds like a winning Con argument to me!

    • TocksNedlog

      NO ONE wants to keep people with pre-existing conditions from having ‘healthcare’.

    • CatHerder ✓fire! ✓fire!

      Your boy isn’t offering health care, just subsidized health insurance courtesy of those of us who actually work for a living. Health care is what you get from the medical profession.

      Get over yourself already. You were able to get health insurance with pre-existing conditions. It’s not my fault you can’t budget out.

      And given that these parks are owned by the American people, there is no reason to keep them closed. Heck, Clinton had more class than this because he didn’t close things out of spite when there was a shut down on his watch.

    • Lisa Dean

      Oh boy! First, you confuse “health care” with “health insurance”. Everyone has access to “health care”, that’s what you receive when you go to the ER, a doctor or hospital etc. and you cannot be turned away from receiving “health care”. Second, with a pre-existing condition you can acquire health insurance but you would have to wait for one year before your insurance would cover anything related to said pre-existing condition. You can also purchase a rider to attach to your insurance that would pay for said pre-existing at a higher price. That rider would then expire after the first year is over when your insurance would begin coverage. Third, if you can’t afford insurance now because of your pre-existing condition, what makes you think you’re going to be able to afford the $5,000 deductible each year? That’s $5,000 out of your pocket, plus insurance premiums each month, that you will have to pay BEFORE ObamaCare will pay for anything. So, in closing and to quote you but with a little fixing “Yes, sounds like a winning Lib argument to me fed to a low information individual”.

          The order to shut down these memorials CAME FROM THE WHITE HOUSE. That is an established FACT. It was Obama’s decision to inflict as much pain on the American people as possible so his lap dogs in the media can blame it on the “shutdown”. But there has been 17 “government shutdowns” in the last 30 years and NOT ONCE HAS THESE MONUMENTS BEEN CLOSED. So this has nothing at all to do with the shutdown and everything to do with Obama punishing the American people.

      Somerset Co. is beautiful “high coal country” farmland. The locals would do it, but they wouldn’t want their equipment impounded by Obama’s federal thugs.

    Is that a state highway, feds have no right to close state highway.

    The shutdown started, and faster than
    you can say “magic bullet” the necessary signs appeared. A well
    oiled corporation could not produce and distribute the signs we saw
    at WWII and other memorials that quickly, yet this was accomplished
    in spite of all the steps in procurement a bureaucracy demands.
    Think about that, and the only conclusion you can come up with is
    that this shutdown was planned as much as 5 to 6 months ago. Obama
    will milk this crisis to the last drop of pain he can inflict to
    advance his agenda.

    This site was built by private donations. The govt. took it over. Govt. taking over ALL things from your ‘allowed toilet, light bulbs on up to your doctor. They blatantly lie to us with a straight face. They are CORRUPT and Greedy. Dismiss them ALL. Fire them, call new elections that adhere to our original laws, rules and regulations!

    There is a word for Obama which fits him to a Tea it starts with N and ends with R. That refers to a person of worthless class and vicious temper. Who should never be put in a position of authority. Unfortunately we let him steal the presidency and he is behaving in the most abominable manner possible. He is stopping people from visiting memorials of all types while welcoming illegal Aliens to memorial sites. He refuses to work with congress throwing temper Tantrums because he cannot get his own way. The sooner he is removed from power the better. Once he is out we can start to repair all the damage this animal has done to our country. God Bless America. Semper Fi. Molon Labe.

    Time to clean house in DC for certain! Start with the White House, then the House of Representatives and then the other legislative house called the Senate. Then lets do something about the Justice Department, in fact the whole justice system – from the Supreme Court on down. Then the Czars, administration employees, etc. It is time to turn this country back to the States, with much smaller Federal Government presence. Then maybe we can enjoy the National Parks like citizens are supposed to be able to do. Just thinking, maybe we would put the barrycades all around the politicians and never let them out!!!

  • yaki534

    The same thing that happened in DC should

    happen here.

    Muslim hijackers used the planes as
    weapons to fly into the WTC. 7 yrs. later,
    Muslim president is dismantling our
    constitutional amendments one by one
    into a socialist government.
    A tyranny needs two tiered system,
    top down run by elite ruling class,
    squeezing the middle class people
    in with the rest of dependencies on
    government only creating a bigger
    gap between the rich & the poor
    through ‘Obamacare.’

  • Kimcalaho

    Why surprised? These are Barry’s toys and since we didn’t play like he wanted us to then we can’t look at his toys. Got it now?

    This is how it is going to feel when we start selling off assets to pay off our creditors.

  • Bobothree

    All this comes about and is allowed to continue not because of Obama and Reid, but because the American people are stupid.

  • Tiny1pj

    The “shutdowns” and barrycaides are nothing more than his petulant actions to hurt those who oppose him and his tyrannical administration. There has never been a president who threw this many temper-tantrums.

    The only person who ran expecting to control congress, and the nation, as much as this tyrant was Ross Perot, who could not get elected because he stated that he would “tell congress what to do and they would do it or else”.

    This tyrant can be laid directly at the feet of our “high tech” but uninformed voters and the lazy of this nation, that want everything for free. They do not want to work for it, and want to stay in front of their “idiot boxes” instead of at a job EARNING their income and paying appropriate taxes.

  • Jan Schilling

    OK folks, have we gotten over the novelty of having an African American man as our president and get down to the serious business of having a real leader run our country? OR are we really going to overlook his grievous mistakes of the last 5 years and give him yet another term office to see if he gets it then?

  • jorgaone

    THIS IS A TRAVESTY…GOTTA STOP!

  • JJM123

    I thought the crash was on Private Property. Suppose the Gov confiscated it? And is that a State or County road that is illegally shut down?

    • reaper_69

      Since when did Obama worry about doing things that were illegal?

  • reaper_69

    Obama is paying his gestapo thugs to close down sites that are the property of the American people! He is a worthless thug who thinks he is the king of this country, There is some hope, what the veterans did in DC should be a beginning! This shit will continue under the Barry Soetoro regime, until large numbers of Americans do the same, show up in large numbers and take back all of OUR memorials!

  • disqus_9HmfSLuBjV

    what the gov gives the gov can take away. This is a prime example……if they give you healthcare doesn’t it figure that they could take it away at anytime? If they give you food can’t they take that away as well?

  • StephS

    I thought that Obitchboy was a nutter who would be voted out of office once it was proven how inept he was at running the country; now, I think he needs to be impeached and brought up on charges. How DARE that son of a (rhymes with witch) close the national parks, especially the memorials for those who gave their lives?!?

    Barry, take your corrupt administration, your fake birth certificate, and your FAILED healthcare policy and shove them where the sun don’t shine, and while you’re at it, pack up your wife and kids and get the heck OUT of the country!

  • rockyvnvmc

    Barry has spent More of Our Money Keeping us Out of such places, than it would have cost to let us In !
    Oust the Usurper from the ‘People’s House’ !

  • C20

    Let’s contribute to new state funds to ‘buy back’ memorials in our states so that we can honor our loved ones freely. By the way, the USA people own the White House. Why is it the building used to ‘disown’ the owners?

  • dolagibb

    The shame of it all and not necessary!! Vote my friends in 2014, remove all those that are in the senate and House that follow obama then just maybe we can impeach obama come 2014!! Love DG <

  • Momof07

    I think most of America, with the exception of the true left wingers, realize now that Obama is the problem not Congress. Since we now know that Congress voted to approve all of the spending that Obama wanted except for Obamacare, because they know it will bankrupt the nation. There is not one family who can afford Obamacare with the extremely high monthly premiums, ridiculous deductible amounts and co-pays. You might as well not even have insurance. I am so glad congress isn’t backing down and I hope they never approve this mess known as Obamacare. I hope they don’t budge an inch!!!! We the people know for a fact, no matter how hard Obama tries to make us believe that it is congress or the Republicans that are at fault for the shutdown, that he needs look no further than his mirror! 2016 can’t come soon enough.

  • The Blue Collar Man

    Got an email, which explains the whole “shut down” thing.
    Think about how government works. It takes weeks or months to get anything done, sometimes years.
    So, think about this; How on earth did all those “closed” signs get printed, and shipped, all over the country, virtually over night?
    This was a large print order, and THERE HAD TO BE SOME LEAD TIME, to get this accomplished overnight.
    The email put forth that this was A PREPLANNED POLITICAL ACTION, possibably months/weeks prior, just to try to attach blame to Repubs.
    Makes perfect sense to me!

  • brianguy

    inexcusable. paid for by PRIVATE donations (like mine): http://www.honorflight93.org/ I don’t remember saying Barry could do whatever he wants with it.

  • MarylandShooter

    Just move the barrycades and pay your respects to those of Flight 93 who heroically gave their lives. This is simply gamesmanship and truly sad.

    Your tax dollars at work!
    PEOPLE!!! When will you get that this huge over-bloated government has become a MONSTER?? Stop voting for big-government representatives!

  • Renoir2

    Tour tax dollars at work! Start voting for people who will represent our need for a smaller government!
