I think that one of the greatest ironies of this shutdown. The unstaffed, open air memorial to Martin Luther King is barricaded. King is probably the greatest modern martyr to human freedom. He lived and died for freedom and now finds himself un -free and barricaded. If MLK was alive, what would he say? Shame on politicians who barricade the unstaffed MLK and War Vet Memorials in the name of political games while they socialize in their still opened gyms. America needs to repent and come back to God, big time. America needs to cry and weep.

I will not get political, but I think that there is something for us the common American folk that bears watching.
Jesus said that we will know what is in people by their repeated habit patterns, or as He calls it, fruit.
For many years, but now more than ever, the Republicans and the Democrats may squabble on the floors of the Capitol and Senate. Yet, when it comes time for The Vote, especially on major issues, they mysteriously come together and usually vote alike.
Look at Syria, budget issues, spying, taxes, and presidential nominations. Most of Washington politicians are like TV wrestlers. They beat each other up in a bloody pulp in front of the screen but off it they are best of buddies. I am suspicious that Republican and Democrats are just the same way. They use the American public as pawns while behind the scenes they are much more in sync than what you and I think, and are working towards one agenda which I am not sure what it is. Globalist, socialist or as Matt Drudge called it today, authoritarian?
The parties in many ways don’t really exist. We need to, whether liberals or conservatives, wisen up, for we are being played more than what we think.
I leave you with Matt Drudge’s Face Book Status
“It’s now Authoritarian vs. Libertarian. Since Democrats vs. Republicans has been obliterated, no real difference between parties…
Why would anyone vote Republican? Please give reason. Raised taxes; marching us off to war again; approved more NSA snooping. WHO ARE THEY?! “
