    I am sure that volunteers would show up across the country to keep monuments and parks open and I am equally sure that the OA would not allow them to open up the facilities so that they can keep using the issue as political leverage.

    seems like a good job for all those collecting unemployment and disability but of course if the public figured out that things could be done without all those federal employees somebody might have to answer as to why we need all those fed employees

    I love that he didn't pick sides. Not picking sides makes his message so much stronger.

    We need a lot more Chris Cox's in this country.

    Yep, the Dems are using this shutdown thinking it will help their side/political view.

    'Politics Before People' - The Dems new motto.

    Sounds like they would have, the article mentioned a couple of times about the police chasing him away. Can't have non-union employees doing things for free.

    Go GATORS!

    That's right... because dirty little Harry has all the bills that the House passed waiting for Harry to allow a vote in the Senate to take place. Which Harry will not allow to happen. The bills that will reopen the entire government.

    At least 435 more people who are willing to put America ahead of their party.

    i'm surprised the local police didn't tase him and lock him up for trespass and destruction of government property. They don't like any back talk.

    This guy was able to accomplish more in one day then the government (union) employees, who are responsible for this type of service, are able to do in a month.
