The National Park Service has ordered the closure of a Virginia park that sits on federal land, even though the government provides no resources for its maintenance or operation.
The Claude Moore Colonial Farm announced on Wednesday that NPS has ordered it to suspend operations until Congress agrees to a deal to fund the federal government.
According to Anna Eberly, managing director of the farm, NPS sent law enforcement agents to the park on Tuesday evening to remove staff and volunteers from the property.
You do have to wonder about the wisdom of an organization that would use staff they dont have the money to pay to evict visitors from a park site that operates without costing them any money, she said.

We are 'safe' now..................
I wonder if the Hale Farm/Village is closed? Bet it is. It’s in the Cuyahoga Valley Park/Reservation.
More pain politics by the Obastard administration.
Jackboots in motion ping
Even bus turn around spaces are being Barry caded. Newt Gingrich posted a picture from Mount Vernon.
If they were Federal Law enforcement agents, I thought the government was in a shutdown.
Should get real interesting if they pull the same crap at Manassas, Wilderness, or Fredericksburg battlefields...I hear the distant rattle of Southern muskets.
The cartels that are growing in our national forests are loving this..
Obama hates America.
And America is just starting to hate Obama and his Democrats.

Exactly. The funding for the NPS has been cut off.
They have no business going around terrorizing park visitors.
Boehner should man up and pass a resolution shutting down the rest of the government that still insists in operating. Just fire the fools. Maybe that’s the only way they’ll get the message.
That park must be where the bodies are buried.................

You really don’t have to wonder, if the organization is a government.
I don’t think I’ve ever been less angry at our government, media, and LIVs. When the vets get arrested....
Yes! Fire them now and we won't need to guillotine them later. :)
This is beyond perfect.
We need to grab them by the nose and kick ‘em. Repeat until done.
