Regardless of those FEW examples of real courage of those willing to stand-up in the face of the Regime's tyranny, the vast majority of people dutifully bow before the all powerful central authority. Too bad the only dedicated patriots willing to stand-up for their freedoms are 70, 80 and 90 year olds. And, the Regime appears to be succeeding at turning this entire fiasco into a rout of the Republican party,. Any chance of taking over the Senate in 2014 has disappeared and Ol' Botox Nancy is already picking curtains for the office of the Speaker. The Tea Party talks a lot and has a real presence throughout the Conservative blogs and web sites, but little real world impact beyond Ted Cruz and Lee. Where is the equivalent of the Occupy movement for our side; I see no evidence of demonstrations, civil disobedience or push back to these park closings and illegal blockages to private party. Everybody seems to be blindly obeying. It is really frightening that these jack booted thugs in the National Park Service and Park Police quietly do the bidding of their "leader"; which offers solid evidence that this central government would readily turn on its own citizens.

I suspect dumbo is just waiting to see something he can use as his Reichstag fire moment. Let one of these older vets get hurt and he'll have it, but he won't win, there are some 125 million folks who wore the uniform in this nation and we respect the oath we took and each other, this clown isn't real popular with us.

The last time a checked the numbers regarding political views in the military, I found an almost even split between those who identify as Democrats, Independents, and Republicans. I was dismayed by the number of Leftists that were among us veterans on chat groups and the like. I just never knew there were that many veterans who could be both proud of their service and of Obama. Cognitive dissonance redounds upon the liberal.
