Skip to comments.Urban Dictionary: Barrycade
Posted on 10/02/2013 9:08:16 PM PDT by Bigtigermike
1. A barrier (usually temporary) that exists for no reason. 2. A barrier erected for political reasons.
"Dude, Obama barrycaded the park."
"Hey, let's put up some barrycades to keep those World War II veterans away from the open-air World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C., in order to try and score some cheap political points."
Ace, that’s definitely going into the lexicon.
In the age of Obama, petulant narcissism passes for leadership.
3.) A thin red line, that cannot be defined until all the facts are in.
Send in the WWII Vets!
It should be the FR word of the day!
Barackades works some fun in the written form, but barrycades rolls off the tongue with panache.
It’s a keeper
Not a ping.
I saw it earlier today as a Twitter hashtag: #Barrycade. Sixteen minutes ago @DCDude1776 tweeted that the word was on Urban Dictionary.
Just out of curiosity, is there any law actually permitting the closing of a national park because staff has been cut? I know there are some public safety provisions - such as if there was an outbreak of the plague in a portion of the park, they can close that section, but I have been searching through the laws, and I honestly can’t find anything that permits a shut down. Plenty of text in the law actually requiring access.
Natural disasters, emergencies, etc, those are all down in the laws as permissible to close a national park. But I just can’t find anything about permission to close it down in the event of the lack of a budget.
It would be most entertaining to walk past a barricade and have someone threaten arrest for trespassing, and then simply ask ‘show me a law that grants you permission to deny me access.’
So I added it. It's being "edited" and will likely be rejected because I defined it as Obama's drug-addled ego version of perestroika that helped bring down the U.S.S.R.
I just said that it orignated on Free Republic five years ago. (That also will probably get it banned.)
This ought to get the LIV’s attention.
I nominate the word ‘Marxocrat’ to replace the term ‘Democrat’, because Democrats are now full-fledged Marxists. John F. Kennedy would agree.
And to add to that, there’s been 17 shutdowns prior. Did anyone forcefully close access to public lands in the other shutdowns or is this uniquely Obama?
My bet is when a Republican was President he tried to make as painless as possible.
And clearly when a Democrat is President he tries to make as painful as possible.
What more needs to be said?
WW II VETS: Normandy, was also closed we when got there!!!...Hussein Obama...tear down YOUR BARRYcades!!!
Interesting information/data tidbit. The WW II Memorial is PRIVATELY funded. It is an open facility accessible from adjoining sidewalks. How does Hussein Obama closed this facility? By what right?National World War II Memorial
The National World War II Memorial was funded almost entirely by private contributions, as specified in Public Law 103-32. The campaign received more than $197 million in cash and pledges. Support came from hundreds of thousands of individual Americans, hundreds of corporations and foundations, veterans groups, dozens of civic, fraternal and professional organizations, states and one territory, and students in 1,200 schools across the country.
Donated and pledged funds were used to cover the total project costs of approximately $182 million. These costs include site selection and design, construction and sculpture, a National Park Service maintenance fee required by the Commemorative Works Act, groundbreaking and dedication ceremonies, fund raising, and the 11-year administrative costs of the project from its inception in 1993 through completion in 2004.
Remaining funds are held on deposit with the U.S. Treasury in a National WWII Memorial Trust Fund. The funds will be used by the American Battle Monuments Commission solely to benefit the World War II Memorial.
Our Military cemetery in Normandy is, in fact, closed. About 20 cemeteries around Europe and Mexico are closed for the “shutdown.” There was a story on FR earlier.
Thanks...yes, I came across those stories earlier today...FRegards
Barrycade could be a CO2-moron...
Don’t feel too bad about your self-inflicted PR wounds, Democrats. This is what it feels like to be a Republican, every day.
I would love to see "Barrycade" enter popular usage as Obamacare has.
I believe FReeper Cripplecreek, Michelle Malkin and Sarah Palin are to thank for this one!
Now for prediction number two. Urban dictionary will publish barrystroika submitted from someone who just happen to all of a sudden think of it but with a definition praising Obama for the same good [their word] transformation intentions as Gorbachev sought for the Soviet Union but the evil Reagan interfered. :)
I don’t know if I was first but Michele Malkin credited me in a Twitchy thread.
A Red, White and Blue PING !
Twitter works to our strengths.
Like I have also said, I know many on our side lurks on F.R.
I have seen too many of our conversations show up the next day in a speech or script.
Twitter is a great way of interacting with people who have media platforms like Malkin.
Who knew that Pat Sajak was such a funny, friendly and conservative guy. Nick Searcy is rather “blunt” about his disgust with liberals to put it mildly.
I KNOW HIM!!! I know that guy!
Aw shoot, I don’t have an autograph book, would you sign my butt?
Re the BarryCades:
As one of the WWII vets after going past the BarryCades, said: The beaches at Normandy were closed when we got there, too.
Barrycades have only been used, so far, in outdoor Park, outdoor Monument, and outdoor Mall settings.
Construction of larger Barrycades to be used on the US Mexican Border had to be canceled when the income from the Fast and Furious uncontrolled gun control investment went the way of all other Obamanation investments.
Potential construction of Barrycades to be placed on Obamas Red Line in Syria is being jointly studied by the US Military, and Nobel Peace Prize Nominee, Vladamir Putin.
Ambassador Dennis Rodman, no relation to Mrs. Bill Clinton, is rumored to be trying to put together a syndicate of his best friends to provide funding for the construction of these Red Line Barrycades.
North Korea spokesmen would not confirm or deny this rumor.
The Obozo and his thugs in the outhouse and park service need to realize that if they create/cause a Kent State incident with our vets. All hell on earth will descend on them and the rats in congress for the next decade!
