Yesterday and today, WWII Vets made their way to Washington via "Honor Flight" to visit the World War II monument built to honor them. But due to the Government Shutdown, barricades had been erected to keep them out of the "closed" monument. Ironically, the open-air monument is always open to visitors 24/7 with or without government there. But the Soldiers who faced down Japanese Zeros and Hitler's tanks were not to be deterred. They broke through the barricades and, many of them in their eighties and nineties, fought for what was rightfully theirs: The freedom to visit their Monument. 


Apparently Joe Biden's personal assistant has been furloughed. The Veep was photographed yesterday holding a folder reading "Codeword" and "Classified Document" which was pointed directly at the press. Biden did not reveal the contents of the folder.
