The Park Service appears to be closing streets on mere whim and caprice. The rangers even closed the parking lot at Mount Vernon, where the
plantation home of George Washington is a favorite tourist destination. That was after they barred the new World War II Memorial on the Mall to
veterans of World War II. But the government does not own Mount Vernon; it is privately owned by the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association. The ladies
bought it years ago to preserve it as a national memorial. The feds closed access to the parking lots this week, even though the lots are jointly
owned with the Mount Vernon ladies. The rangers are from the government, and they’re only here to help.
Hey it does not matter if we own it... shut it down!
“It’s a cheap way to deal with the situation,” an angry Park Service ranger in Washington says of the harassment. “We’ve been told
to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting.”
Wow even the Indians are getting fed up with Chief Walking Bird's
lackeys. (bird who can not fly because he is full of it)
We have allot of threads running about the government shut down....An I have not read them all so forgive me if this has been posted before... What I
found heartening was the reported statement by the park ranger.
Yep he is doing his job but it is leaving a bad taste in his mouth and who knows, maybe just maybe, he and others might decide to just say screw it
and walk off the job or turn a blind eye so to speak.... Well one can hope can't they?
Without loyal followers/enforcers no government has power over anything or anyone....
Other side of the coin; nothing will happen and the U.S. will muddle through this as they have muddled through other muddles... and when it is all
over TPTB can all pat themselves on the back.
I have been having the old saying running like a broken record through my mind; "Never let a good crisis go to waste".
Make it as bad as you can "torpedoes be damned" as long as the goal is reached seems to be the ship of states course at this stage. Games and more
games to sway the masses. I have to agree with the Ranger, "Disgusting"!
