The title of a recently released CBS News article is “Crowd pushes through barriers to gather at WWII memorial” (Web-site/URL: http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-201_162-57607296/crowd-pushes-through-barriers-to-gather-at-wwii-memorial/).
“Republican Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah, along were former Alaska Gov. SARAH PALIN, were among those gathered Sunday morning (October 13 2013).

Finally, “Cindy Good had a message for lawmakers. “They need to LISTEN to the American people and try to WORK TOGETHER (?) in Congress to GET THIS WHOLE THING WORKED OUT“. Again unfortunately this clearly IS NOT happening.
So, this government shutdown and the IMMINENT default has now led to VIOLENCE. THIS IS DEEPLY TROUBLING. We also have the latest chapter of SARAH PALIN‘s ANTICS. That woman simply will not give up. After PAINTING GUNS over former Rep/Congresswoman GABBY GIFFORDS’ district,
