Skip to comments.Park Police Try to Shut Down Mount Vernon
Posted on 10/02/2013 2:46:24 PM PDT by magellan
Stephen Gutowski (@collegepolitico) reported on Twitter the Park Police blockaded the entrances to the parking lots to Mount Vernon. Mount Vernon is not a government site. According the the Mount Vernon web site:
No Shutdown Here
The Federal government may be shut down, but Washingtons home remains open. Mount Vernon has remained a private non-profit for more than 150 years.
Gutowski posted these photos and others to his Twitter feed:
Other photos are surreal. Parking spots along the side of the George Washington Parkway were blockaded too:
And even this small lot:
We are sending a clear message to the half breed president that we are so chicken we can be thwarted by overgrown saw horses.
Not a snowball's chance in Hell as long as they can watch Dancing with the Stars.
This is where Americans need to start taking their country back. The thugs don’t own Mount Vernon.
Just how many essential personnel did it take to put up those barriers and how many would it take to stand by and let Americans wander around the monuments that they have paid for??
“The thugs are out of control. BTT”
I believe they are close and the Po’ representative have to push the button on the elevator to go from floor to floor.
Be happy that they are over playing an already bad hand. I wonder if they have the nerve to close the Arlington National Cemetery?
Excellent photo of this treasured gentleman vet! A travesty to the 1,000 degree. What must this man think?
This photo of yours should be front page in every paper across the country.
Tea Party folks, rise up and set this DC mob straight. For those close to DC, can you also go join these blessed honor flight visitors?
Keep the faith.
“Just for spite.”
That describes Obama perfectly, spiteful!
The DIMwit DIMocRATs are running scared. Keep on them. Throw the bums out as soon as possible. They are desperate to get you to cower. Resist...resist...resist.
THAT photo alone should have saved us from this nightmare we are living.
i double triple dare them to close down the bike path along the Potomac.
That photo really pisses me off!
it is not YOUR MONEY, democrats/dc believes it belongs to them.
it is not your HOME, DC believes they just let you live there but they own it.
it is not a private business, dc believes they OWN it and you are just a silent slave/partner.
Obama brought slavery back to the usa.
Until King Obama is impeached America is finished.
Great mind really do think alike.
This must be what Obama was referring to when he said he has bent over backwards to work with Republicans. In other words, he has done everything he could to intimidate them into caving.
