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?
