In a continuation of the Republican House shutting down our country to gain political edge, and then many of their minion blaming anything but the Republican House, we see a State having to open what should never have closed. But it seems no conservative really cared about the Statue of Liberty. She stands as the historic symbol of America for all who arrive and bath in her welcoming glory. She is America. She stood there in silence and no caravan of a handful of truckers raced to her shoreline to express their misplaced outrage on our President. No House member raced to her side to hug people unable to walk around or touch her freedom symbolization. Nothing. Never was freedom so symbolically spit upon and our country more dumbed down then when she was closed to the world by the Republican House Members and her silence went unnoticed by their cheerleaders because those who shut her down focused on another monument they also shut down. And so the magnificent Statue of Liberty reopening is a byline to the Obama fixated blind and she fell into the pile of Republican House closures that their supports did not give a momentary care about. Her reopening in shameful symbolic circumstances should be greeted as pathetically as the shockingly obtuse back story she became to political game players. Let me be the one to announce it so her words can be felt again; "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free. The wretched refuse of you teamming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
