Just yesterday I wrote about more petty temper tantrum actions taken by the Obama administration and I said that they were being purposely done to hurt Americans. They are shutting down access to the open ocean at Florida Bay. They also ordered a privately owned business that runs over a 100 campgrounds to shut down, even though the business uses no federal employees or funds but actually generates money that is given to the US Treasury. Park Service also had police put up orange cones to prevent Americans from using simple pullouts to view and photograph Mt. Rushmore.
I also said that we would most likely be hearing about more of them and indeed we are. In case you may have doubted that the bizarre and childish actions of the federal government were intention, you need to listing to one Park Ranger. A Park Ranger who for obvious reasons remains anonymous told the Washington Times:
“We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting.”
More examples of park rangers carrying out their orders can be seen across the nation starting with Mount Vernon, the home of George Washington. It is privately owned by the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association, but that didn’t stop the Park Service from barricading the road leading to the parking lot. It seems that the parking lots are jointly owned by the Park Service and the Ladies’ Association, but private ownership means nothing to the federal government these days.
A number of home owners at Lake Mead were given a 24 hour eviction notice. Two of the residents are Ralph (80) and Joyce (77) Spencer who have owned their Lake Mead home since the 1970s. Although the homes are privately owned, they sit on federal lands and Park Service rangers told them that they had 24 hours to leave at which time the roads leading into their homes were barricaded. The Park Service issued the following statement:
“Unfortunately overnight stays are not permitted until a budget is passed and the park can reopen.”
In North Carolina, Park Rangers ordered a privately owned hotel, The Pisgah Inn, along the Blue Ridge Parkway to shut down. Bruce O’Connell, owner of the inn said that they hold the concession along parkway and questions the government’s authority to shut his private business down. So far, he is defying the order to close his doors.
Ironically, the National Parks and Forest Service facilities are shut down, but hundreds of rangers are still working to ensure that Americans are kept out of their national treasures. How does that make sense other than what the one park Ranger said about being ordered to make this as hard on people as possible?
All of this is happening because Obama refuses to negotiate with Republicans concerning Obamacare. He already negotiated with big business by illegally extending the employer mandate a year, but refuses to even talk to Republicans about it. The government shutdown is due solely to Obama’s hypocrisy and as I suggested last week, could be an intentional move to cause the economic collapse of the country and the establishment of Obama’s dictatorship.
