Maggie’s Notebook has been following the events unfolding at the World War II Memorial in DC. The 2 Million Bikers group has personally escorted the veterans who have come to see THEIR memorial into the barricaded area. This is happening NOW. I’m re-blogging Maggie’s latest post since she is following the events all day today and adding updates with photos (Saturday 10/5.) And here are some little known facts:
REMINDER: Private Citizens donated the funding for the World War II Memorial. It was NOT government funded.
REMINDER: Bill Clinton did NOT deny access to Memorials in the 1995 shutdown. Visitors centers were closed but the Memorials were open – after all, these Memorials are “open air.”
GOD BLESS AMERICA – PASS THIS ON!!!!!
Ongoing UPDATES – PHOTOS: Bikers Escort WW II Veterans –

SCROLL DOWN FOR OTHER NEWS. Belinda Bee at 2 Million Bikers Ride to DC is busy posting photos and info of today’s ride (Saturday, October 5, 2013) to escort Veterans of World War II into barricaded Memorials.NOTE: Belinda says Facebook “has locked down some of our state group rooms” making it impossible for updates on those pages, but so far the 2 Million Bikers to DC page is open. All of the updates below are from that page.
I’ll be adding photos and info as the day goes on. This post will stay on top today and throughout the day I’ll also add comments between photos, in no particular order. Please scroll down for current news posts. (READ MORE HERE)

I’ve been traveling again….thus the lack of writing. However, you’ll be glad to know that even though the “Chicken Little” President and sky-is-falling Democrats insist we are now facing Armageddon, life goes on. Hubby and I drove from Columbus Ohio to Philadelphia last week. The roads were open, truckers were driving, planes were flying, people were smiling. Gee….the only place that isn’t happy is DC. One silly stunt we noticed was that we thought about stopping at the Flight 93 National Memorial in Shanksville PA. This was the first day of the shutdown/end of the world. We knew the park would be closed, but the website was also shutdown. REALLY?????? So even websites don’t work during a shutdown? What nonsense. It’s just more proof that Barry and his buddies are trying to make this a visible PR campaign about how horrible the people are who are trying to reign in spending and end Obamacare.
UPDATE: the Department of the Interior website is back up and running. Hallelujah!!!
Check this out….the order to barricade the WWII Memorial came DIRECTLY from the White House: Park Service Says Obama admin Ordered Closure of WWII Memorial
Oh yeah – and this is good:
LOL!!!! Obama says he has “bent over backwards” to work with the GOP.
Meanwhile, the House continues to pass resolutions to keep the government open.…and Harry Reid and Barack Obama refuse to consider them: House to Vote on Back Pay for Furloughed Government Workers
So at this point, I think we need to watch this highlight video of Ronald Reagan jokes. Be sure to watch to the end because he has a message for Barack Obama 😉 SHAKA to Bob in Texas!
Last but not Least – Carl Adds:
Anyone who has watched Barry over the years knows he can sometimes, many times, play the role of a petulant child. He’s been photographed, angry, and obviously giving someone off camera the middle finger. Mainstream reporters have even written about it.
Now, for whatever reason, maybe simply because of his contempt for citizens, Obama’s healthcare hotline has a telling 800 number. Need healthcare coverage, Just dial 1-800-F**KYO to reach Obamacare’s national hotline Just dial 1-800-F**KYO to reach Obamacare’s national hotline. Yep, and the second and third digit are U and C.
Maybe he can give away free Obama phones for signing up!?!
