National Park Service rangers are being ordered to make life difficult during the government shutdown, according to the Washington Times.
After the shutdown began, park police have been barring tourists from a number of popular attractions nationwide, including the WWII memorial. Even privately-owned landmarks, such as Mount Vernon, are being told by the National Park Service to close their doors.
The Times reported: The Park Service appears to be closing streets on mere whim and caprice. The rangers even closed the parking lot at Mount Vernon, where the plantation home of George Washington is a favorite tourist destination. That was after they barred the new World War II Memorial on the Mall to veterans of World War II. But the government does not own Mount Vernon; it is privately owned by the Mount Vernon Ladies Association. The ladies bought it years ago to preserve it as a national memorial. The feds closed access to the parking lots this week, even though the lots are jointly owned with the Mount Vernon ladies. The rangers are from the government, and theyre only here to help.

I thought the Mount Vernon Ladies’ Association kicked the park rangers out of the parking lot and re-opened both the parking lot and Mount Vernon?
Scott Walker REFUSED to close parks despite order by feds
Hmmm, just like the storm troopers who were told to fire on innocent, unarmed women and children at Waco...
how can they sleep at night?
In regards to some of the police involved in the killing of the dental hygienist, NBC said this:
The two injured officers were exempt from the government shutdown and required to work but were not being paid.
I guess they have other Obama/Democrat Party slaves harassing people at the parks.

Time for the states to start taking the land back and kicking the feds out. We have no time for adults acting like children.
“Really, I was just following orders.....”
Sorry maggots that doesn’t cut it
During the Fireman's Union strike in Memphis, TN in 1980-81 (I believe) there was a major spate of mysterious fires that were started throughout the city. Also, people started taking 'pot shots' at high school students from around the state that came in as 'scabs' during that strike.
Eventually the National Guard had to post armed soldiers at major street corners and patrol the streets in jeeps.
There is true evil in this world, and it tends to vote Democrat!
This might get interesting in the national forests.
Politicization of the NPS is a step too far.
Rangers are going to be having issues for years as a result of this boneheaded tyranny.
Yes they will. Obama is the new Nazi Party.
America will not suffer this fool much longer.
Time for a new birth of freedom.
Apparently hurting the citizens is “essential.”
The People are Bammy’s enemies.
What used to be America has been fundamentally transformed - as promised. I'd call that "change".
Yes, he has declared war on us. Are the people smart enough to see it?
The libs may not want tourists reminded that the country had a real American as President at one time.
