    In regards to my earlier question, please report on the protest held on the DC mall on Tuesday, or post the times that you reported this on TV. I apparently missed it.

    As reported in the Wall Street Journal --

    This shutdown sure is bringing out the worst in our government!

    Can anybody tell me if this is true:
    Access to the MALL and monuments are blocked to the 86 year old Veterans who defended our freedom. But it's WIDE OPEN to the thousands of illegal aliens who protested in DC today!

    I can not believe that the government will hold our Social Security checks! What about HOLDING WELFARE CHECKS!! We paid into Social Security, welfare people PAID IN NOTHING!! This is a disgrace. Why is government so nice to the people on welfare and they ALWAYS take from the WORKING POPULATION! WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE!! This is ridiculous!!
