will this blatant exploitation of veterans stop? Shame! Leave us veterans alone. Quit the political posturing!
One speaker (not named in the CNN article I saw) went so far as to denounce the President as being a Muslim as if that is a crime. He told the President to put down the Quran. I can only assume he is against religious freedom and education. He believes that that freedom of speech means you can say anything even if it is not true. It was a clear case of a politician trying to create an emotional issue. The man is an idiot.
Senator Ted Cruz, one of the leaders of the shutdown and another idiot, said that our vets should be above politics. Of course, he doesn’t believe that applies to him. If we vets do not get our disability checks, then Ted Cruz is to blame (http://clicktotweet.com/bZ2zf). It will not be forgiven or forgotten any time soon. That has nothing to do with closing the national parks. The parks are closed to the public, not just veterans. They are closed because of Ted Cruz. To use veterans to grandstand is shameful (http://clicktotweet.com/NB8V1). He wants Obama to get off his knees. Well Senator Cruz, get off your ass.
