Posted on 10/03/2013 6:17:43 PM PDT by chessplayer
Its official. They are shutting all of us down ASAP. Marching orders straight from the White House.
Update: Mr. Meyer emails to add that not only is his business being forced to take losses for the closures, but in some cases the government is making him and the other park management companies buy the barricades that will be used to shut the parks.
Warren Meyer of Phoenix, AZ, is owner and president of Recreation Resource Management, Inc. RRM employs about 400-500 camp workers and managers across about a dozen states. It is one of a handful of companies that have been managing national parks and campgrounds as tenants for years, through previous government shutdowns including the last one in 1995-1996. Those previous shutdowns never closed any of the parks managed in this way, but the current shutdown threatens closure.
The campgrounds are self-sufficient and receive no federal funding. No government employees staff or manage the parks. The management companies pay the National Park Service out of the funds they generate from operating the thousands of campgrounds. So the reason for the shutdown is puzzling to Meye
How can he order that? We have a new king? A monarchy? Just who the P*^O*^&(P does he think he is?????????
Message: don’t pi@s off the King!
Bill Ayers approves.
They should do like Wisconsin and just tell him to get stuffed.
My advise to Meye is this, "Get a clue!"
Obama is doing this to cause as much pain as possible. If these park owners and operators have any courage, they will engage in civil disobedience.
run them anyway......I notice the “one” is still taking money from my paycheck....
I feel more and more sure that he will openly use force against the population and try to take his tyranny to the next level.
Desperate people do desperate things.
This clown is coming unhinged.
People better start taking some precautions.
Absolutely! We need to show our servants who is boss! wow!
What is their authority to shut down a leased business?
Is there some provision in the lease agreements?
Or are they just threatening to not renew the lease??
Allons enfants de la Patrie:
TO THE BARRICADES!
Here’s an issue - why does the Federal Government own ANY land?
Except for office buildings and military reservations there is no reason in the world the Federal Government should own ANY land. It should ALL be turned over to the States. Even the National Parks. We are now seeing why it is DANGEROUS to let them own ANYTHING.
The Obama thugocracy, on display.
Way past time for States to defy the Federal Government! Please States, stand up for your rights under the Constitution.
Just wait til he (or some democrat like him) gets control of your health care!
Everyone should go to their nearest National Park and just walk in. They are going to arrest you for trespassing?
I was driving by a state park tonight (Allaire) and there was a US Parks Police car backed into and blocking the park entrance. I don’t know if that’s coincidence, or if state parks are now being affected.
This is so symbolic of this Administration/Obama’s having no sense of their/his job, its responsibilities, where their power ends. They also put up barackades at Mt Vernon which has never been owned by the government. But they *think* they own or are in charge of everything within the US and its territories.
Do not comply!!
If enough people do not comply, their power is over.
Over all he is just being a jackazz
Obama is a bully, depriving all the elderly Tea Party ladies of enjoying their fall leaf-peeping bus tours.
Refuse to comply.
If they are truly independent of Washington, don’t comply.
Tell him to get stuffed.
this looks desperate...he must know his internal numbers suck, no matter what the media says’...the media lies aren’t
working....me thinks the WW2 vets opened him up like a casaba
Glenn Beck was saying today that the regime is well past the nudge stage and is now going full speed into the push stage. They’re TRYING to incite anger, class wars, etc....not prevent them.
By what law can the Zero King order private parks, etc. to close?
Why were US Parks Police at a State Park? Does it receive federal funds?
“independent of Washington” A new trend perhaps?
This might be desperate but Barry is getting away with it. He is getting away with federalizing our private health care and now this.
This is like a game of “red light, green light”. The feds are close to the win. Us FReepers being shocked is probably funny to the Kenyan.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
National Peoples TV just ran a series called National Parks, sub titled Americas best idea.
Now, with the spectacle of brown shirted Federal employees telling Citizens get the hell out of here, you have no right to be here - how ironic is that?
Here’s another issue — how is he closing parks that receive NO Fed funding? How do ACORN/DeathCareNavigoons get *funded* to go door to door, etc if we can’t keep parks open?
They should just politely refuse.
Hopefully. In pecuniary matters ...if that’s possible.
Note to Obama: American presidents ought to strive to emulate George Washington, not King George.
If the parks in question receive no funds from the Feds in the first place, what authority do they have to tell him to do anything? Or even KNOW what he’s doing? I hope he’s telling them to fuck off.
So ‘his people’ don’t go camping?
To which I say "Good! Let him over-play his hand!" I'm already hearing people mock the "Government shutdown" at work and out on the streets. This may actually work to the Republican's benefit by the time this is all over at this rate.
High time for a few thousand patriots to liberate the Lincoln Memorial. Just show up, take down the Barackades, toss them in the back of a pickup, and tote them to recycling. Then occupy the memorial.
Send a second wave to the Washington Monument, a third to the Jefferson Memorial, Vietnam, and so forth . . . until they arrive at the Statue Of Liberty.
Imagine a flotilla of private boats approaching Liberty Island, horns honking, flares flaring, and sabres drawn.
It's not really even "disobedience", given that they have no authority to be making these ridiculous demands. More like "civil ignorance", simply ignoring people yapping about stuff that doesn't concern them.
I dunno about you, but I’ve never seen one of them urbanite Obama voters camping .......
Not puzzling at all, 0boma HATES regular Americans, puzzle solved.....
