    Demonstrators of the 'Million Vet March' made their way to the White House in Washington DC, Sunday, as part of a protest against the closure of the WWII memorial due to the current government shutdown. Marines, soldiers and war veterans carried barricades from the Lincoln memorial to the White House.



    One protester said, "They forgot us, they forgot we represent them, they forgot they're heroes, we're here to get our benefits back, we're here to fight for the American people"



    Although the event started as a peaceful protest, small clashes broke out after police failed to stop protesters creating barricades around the perimeter of the White House, prompting the arrival of officers in riot gear.

    Seems to me these Vets should have trekked to the Capitol Building, not to the White House.

    If only Obama kept the illegals out of the country with the same vigor he is keeping vets from war memorials.

    I guess they didn't hear that King Obama already boarded up the White House for the "little people" to punish us for reining in a minute amount of spending via sequestration.

    I forgot, who hasn't passed the bill?

    I don't think it's Obama.

    So why didn't the Dems pass a budget when they had control of both Houses and the Presidency? Hmmmmmm?

    Oh that is right, they were too consumed with backroom dealings to get the ACA passed before they could read it while ignoring their mandated duties of passing a budget....

    I've been saying for awhile now that there is a political class (the politicians, their staffs, money bundlers, campaign donors etc etc) and then there is everyone else.

    Tea Party liars who hated Obama the day they first saw him. If they weren't "operatives" of the moronic right, they'd be marching on Capitol Hill and not the White House.

    you idiot. sequestration cuts were rather substantial and this shutdown has nothing to do with them.

    it has everything to do with republicans butthurt over obamacare.

    the same dingbats that planned the shut-down 6 months ago are now complaining about access to monuments.
