For about two weeks, the focus of much of the media’s attention has been the partial shutdown of the federal government. If one needs to rehash how the shutdown came about or is unfamiliar with names such as Cruz, Reid, Boehner or Obama and how they all played a role, one likely won’t care to learn about it now as the shutdown comes to a close. Much of the Republican establishment has caved, fully funding not only ObamaCare, but continued drone wars overseas and domestic spying. Our regularly scheduled tyranny resumes. We have learned, in fact, that in the slowing of the encroachment of government upon more and more of our lives, there are things a great deal stronger than the Republicans’ resolve.
90 year old veterans
When barricades were erected to block World War II veterans’ access to open air memorials, the generation that pierced the Siegfried Line of Nazi Germany had no issue with breaking through the “Barry-cades” that were supposed to impede their attempts at remembering their departed brethren. People then carried the remains of the Obama Wall to the White House.
While the Democrats have the donkey, and the Republicans have the elephant, may I humbly suggest the bison as the symbol of the Tenther movement. Nearly hunted to extinction, just like our precious liberties, they have been making a gradual comeback over the last few decades. This particular bison apparently did not take kindly to the Barry-cade that seemed to be in the middle of nowhere. But did the bison start screaming to throw the bums out, start an email campaign to its congressman or go to court? You have to watch to get your answer.Details
