Shutdown day 2

  • The old vets getting denied access to the monuments is absurd.  Especially the ‘BarryCades’ on day two.  But on the whole it’s not an argument / observation I can proffer with much enthusiasm.  Too obviously jingoistic.
  • Still…. Given the typical LEOs instinct to tase or baton at the first cross word from any citizen they might encounter, I’m surprised some codgers haven’t gotten killed here.
  • Budget meeting at the White House?  And this is b/c of the monuments outcry?  Doesn’t compute to me, I don’t see this overturning a week of bad press for the R’s.
  • The President doesn’t walk away the victor by being the adult in the room.  If he concedes on anything, he loses.
