Park Service Abuses Spark New ‘Battle of Yorktown’

Amid Growing Complaints, Government Unblocks View of Mount Rushmore. Blocking the pullouts on the road with cones? Seriously?

Last week it started when the WWII Vets took and occupied the WWII Memorial. This Sunday it continues with the Million Vet March on the Memorials. This is the 17th government shutdown since 1977. None of the other 16 shutdowns resulted in barricades around our memorials, people being run out of their privately owned homes, or private restaurants being shut down. This time, there are reports from government employees who say they have been told to make the public as miserable as possible. I’m so proud of our vets for taking action against this unnecessary melodrama, and I support them 100%.
