Park Police Try to Shut Down Mount Vernon
Stephen Gutowski's Twitter Feed (@collegepolitico) ^ | 2 October 2013

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 Washington’s 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:

"i double triple dare them to close down the bike path along the Potomac."

Actually I think that and the GW Parkway are under the National Park Service. It will be interesting to see if they entirely close that significant commuter route.

Exactly! Why aren’t there pictures of Americans moving and then turning the barricades into firewood?

This is another White House initiative to cause pain and publicity and blame the Republicans.

Not a snowball's chance in Hell as long as they can watch Dancing with the Stars.

I'm afraid you're right.

This is a harassment campaign.

The Obama goons are “essential workers.”

"are congressional giftshops closed?
are congressional barbershops closed?"

Is the NSA domestic spying operation closed? No. These things are "essential," like golf and Moochelle's vacations and the dog's private jets.

I sense another Downfall parody in the making. When the camera zooms in on the map, the General could be telling Hitler about where the Barrycades are being set up.

"Mein Fuhrer . . . Steiner was not able to hold the line. The WWII vets got through . . . "
