Skip to comments.Unbelievable: Police prevent drivers from pulling over and viewing Mt. Rushmore
Posted on 10/05/2013 5:39:45 PM PDT by Winstons Julia
And now the feds have put up cones to keep people out of scenic overlooks on Mount Rushmore.
The joke becomes life...eh?
Payback to Obama will be a bitch.
They have also “closed” the ocean off Florida.
All the RATs in Congress will join him in the anger from the voters come 2014, ya think?
When we win the presidency in 2016, the new President and cabinet will have to spend the entire first year just getting rid of all the trash hired under nobama. Unions be damned.
One measuring cup of gasoline, $0.35.
One match, $0.00001.
Watching a foolish cone burn: PRICELESS.
NOW HEAR THIS...NOBODY IS ALLOWED TO BREATHE AIR BECAUSE THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OWNS THAT TOO. STOP! STOP, YOU PATHETIC PEASANTS!
Did they block off the sky too?
Some comments at the link indicate that the cones were up prior to October 1st, so I’d suggest taking this story with a grain of salt.
This must have happened before the blizzard that paralyzed that part of South Dakota over the last few days. Right now no one can even get to Mount Rushmore.
This is all due to a mild public reaction to socialized medicine. Just wait until it is in full force and the imposter wants to do something (maybe run for a third “term”)?
This is getting Bizarre and strange. I bet its all coming from the Oval Office too. People in the National Parks are not Obama’s Private Army. This could get ugly real fast.

Here in S Texas, the feds closed Padre Island Natl Seashore, They hired people to patrol the waters so no one can enter the federal waters surrounding the beach. Whether by intention or accident, ie fishing.”
Cones? Oh the horror!
Guess it’s time to have a little bonfire.
F U B O!
four million feet in DC blocking the entrances to the house, senate and white hut would do the trick.
Actually, I tried to post it from another source...but FR said I couldn’t.
If you Google...
Mount Rushmore blockage stirs anger in South Dakota
The story is there. The cones went up on the 1st. Due to snow, they are down... but apparently they will go up again....
“All the RATs in Congress will join him in the anger from the voters come 2014, ya think?”
We wish, but sadly, almost 50% of the nation is brain dead, and it is getting worse by the day.
How else can one explain Obumbo’s reelection?
Marxist media and Marxist education have destroyed the country.
Did they block off the sky too?

Well, I guess it is apparent now that all this has little
to do with government, shutdowns, or money. This creep is
poking the skunk just to see what happens.
What will happen?
To those democrats voters who are lurking on this thread- are you proud of your party and where it has gone? Petty, spiteful, despicable, hateful, and you have an hand in it too.
an hand = a hand
Wishful thinking - the Republicans WILL get the blame for this. Low-information, MSNBC/CNN/ABC voters are too lazy and dependent on Obummer and the Democrat programs they are slaves too...
If our former presidents could see what Obama is doing to America, they would cry.
So why are they following these orders?
It’s really because obumbler looks so bad in comparison with the presidents on Mt Rushmore. Actually he look pretty bad compared to the pigeon crap on Jefferson’s head
I hope they don’t close off Mount Rainier from being seen by the public.
As I understand it the cones were put up before 10/1, state officials asked they be taken down which they were but were then put back. 3 days later the blizzard + snow plows came along and took control, for the time being. Winter can’t get here soon enough.
Well, Obama has said that if the debt ceiling isn’t increased, SS and disability checks may be delayed...
...just wait until they can control the surgeries that get performed.
Really.. Good luck with that. Maybe just fine everyone looking in the general direction.
These are the people who will be making critical decisions on your medical care.
It will be interesting on this November 11 it will be Veteran’s Day and I don’t want to see this POS anywhere near the memorial or the Unknown Tomb. I hope and pray in any public event that Obama and that fat Wookie shows, that people boo them off to hell.
He was eyeballing the mountain, even though the signs clearly stated ‘closed’.
Thanks for the clarification.
The headline made it look like it happened today.
So why are they following these orders?
Trail Ridge road between Grand Lake and Estes Park CO is closed due to the shutdown. It is one of only two roads into Estes Park after the floods. This is a declared disaster area with major infrastructure damage. TR road will close for the winter due to weather before long but we need every day and every way we can get to try and get a handle on the flood aftermath before serious winter weather sets in.
TR road is a state highway so where do the Feds get off closing it? Unfortunately our mayor doesn't have the balls to stand up for us. He was on Fox News putting the blame on Congress instead of doing his job. But the fact remains, 0bama is applying pain to people in a national disaster area for political gamesmanship.
I post that not to complain or find relief but simply to inform all of yet another incident of 0malignant's narcissistic cruelty.
Nice. The only issue I have with that version of Rushmore is that their belts aren’t down around their thighs with the pants...
It’s all I can do to be civil to anyone I know who voted for that evil fill-in-the-blank! I have cut former friends out of my life and some relatives, too. They are all so smug and sure that I am SO wrong about their hero! It’s impossible to talk to them and I can’t bear to be around them. When will people wake up?
I wouldn’t. If you saw the printed signs for the Veterans Memorials, you know this was planned out in advance. I would suspect the cones were put there for exactly that purpose, just got a jump on everyone else or possibly one of the low information and reading skilled employees who got the date wrong.
Another version of this said they were up on the first and they completely blocked the places to pull off and view the monument... but I can’t post that one on Free Republic.
However...it looks as though the mods have decided this is weather-related.
They chased this poor woman halfway up the mountain:
