In the past week we have witnessed the greatest show of disdain and disrespect for WWII and Vietnam War veterans ever. This was driven by President Obama. Closing war monuments to the Honor Flight veterans and allowing illegal aliens access to the area is the ultimate slap in the face. Our own Nancy Pelosi was with the illegal aliens; California is disgraced.

The media and the Democrats had to find a villain to attack the veteran pushback and guess who they focused on? The tea party, which is made up of many people just like our neighbors. All they want is the government to work for the country and not for the big government. For all the shutdown noise we have ignored what Obamacare is doing to people’s lives: loss of insurance, loss of jobs, reduced work hours and increasing insurance premiums. Totalitarian states knew that if you control health care, you can control the citizens. Something to think about.
