#3 I checked to see how HuffPo covered this. A ways Dow the page was a lead "Conservatives continue to obsess about WWII memorial. If you did follow that link they carried the story lead World War II Memorial Barriers Pushed Through By Crowd".

I guess it is a non-story.

Tie 'em to orange, autumn, Halloween. Great Pumpkin. Gummint cheez. Maaaaybe get "mandarin" a pencilpoint of mainstream mindspace. Let 'em eat Barack a l'orange. Canteloupe: yellow on the outside, orange on the inside. Autumn. Non-essential leaves falling: yellow, orange, red. Raking at sunset. Americana.

#5 A heart-warming story. Don't recall where I saw it, but some vet snarked "Normandy was closed when we got there, too!".

#6 I went to check it out. Unfortunately, I wandered off to the Vietnam War Memorial before I could help carry the barricades to the WH. :(

The US Park Police helicopters circling barely above the treetops was as creepy as it was unnecessary, as with the mounted police and riot gear. Universities indulge in similarly inane security overkill at conservative events on campus too. Never could figure out how a few dozen kids with crew cuts, American flag lapel pins, and smiles for the police were perceived as any kind of threat.

Now that campus leftie loonies have taken over the country, I guess paranoid projection is SOP.

#7 A vet with both legs amputated and wearing prosthetics delivers a barricade to the White House.

Still a soldier of freedom.
