I sue hope Americans make Hussein Obama and the Democrats pay for this sh8t.

Some of these government shutdown articles are just intentional misinformation and alarmism.

I'm guessing that Mt. Rushmore was closed to visitors, so the visitors were pulling over to view it in another location in such numbers that it became a safety hazard on the highway. And the police were probably South Dakota state police, not connected with the federal government.

Gannett articles are headline and link only, so here is the link to the Argus-Leader article that says the cones went up on the First as part of the shutdown:

Currently the Black Hills are snowed in and no travel was advised. However when the roads are cleared these are state highways and the Park Service has no business blocking them.

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.

After reading the article on the Gannett owned Argus-Leader, and after reading several posts here from people who seemed to know more about the story and South Dakota weather conditions than what was found on the Twitter comments posted on Twitchy, I was the Mod who added "[Weather Related]" to your title and moved this into our Chat Forum, under the Weather topic Sidebar.

Then another Mod arrived and noticed an urgent note from Kristinn who said that the added "[Weather Related]" comment to the title was false. Since that Mod agreed with Kristinn's assessment that the "[Weather Related]" comment was false, the added comment was removed.

This thread has now been moved back into the News Forum and since other Posters have also posted the same story, we have added this to Breaking News in order to stem the flow of duplicate threads.

We hope that this helps in understanding the process we sometimes go through and what happened to your thread. We are terribly sorry for any and all inconvenience this may have caused you and any Posters currently living in South Dakota and those who may be on their way to a vacation in South Dakota.

Thank you Kristinn as always for your ever vigilant assistance and suggestions.

Payback to Obama will be a bitch

You're right, but it won't be in this life!

After murderous scandals like Fast n' Furious, or 4 murdered Americans including our Ambassador to Lybia, or AF1 joyride over Manhattan, or the IRS scandal, or any of the other 100 or so corruptions & scandals, is 0bama is receiving any payback for these? On the contrary, the leftist media whores & the uninformed sheeple apparently worship 0dumb0shit even more.

Face it, 0dumb0shit has two qualities that make him untouchable... he's black (his half-white side doesn't count) and he's a RAT bastard, radical socialist. These two attributes make him untouchable.

As many others have pointed out, 0dumb0shit could torture, rape & kill a young girl (or boy) on stage, on national TV, on all networks.... and there is not one damn thing that would happen to him.

The only payback 0dumb0shit will ever see is when he is cast into eternal Hell in the Lake of Fire! Now THAT will be his eternal, everlasting payback as he roasts in Hell, and likely will be the first (and only, but eternal) payback that he will ever see.

It is hard to reconcile myself to the notion that the RAT bastard communist muzlim pig 0dumb0 is untouchable in this life, but that is a hard & fast reality. Let's not delude ourselves into thinking that any payback will ever happen to 0dumb0, or Hillary or Bubba or Holder, or any other high-ranking demoRAT, at least in this life.

Which police?

Is this Park Police? State Police?

I thought Obama argued that State Police could not enforce federal immigration laws, because it was the job of the feds, and we can't tolerate separate state actions?

So, if this is State Police enforcing Obama's federal pain on citizens, how is this possible?

Obama won't enforce border and immigration laws against non-citizens, and will sue states that try on their own, but will use those same State Police to punish Americans when it suits his needs?

Someone needs to go to federal court to stop Obama from his reckless use of state resources like this.

And the police were probably South Dakota state police, not connected with the federal government.

Then they shouldn't be doing 0dumb0shit's dirty work for him. More likely they are card carrying RAT bastard demoRAT union members, and they are harrassing sight-seers out of the evil that naturally flows from RAT bastard socialist, union, liberal demoRATs. If a Republican president at any time had ever acted this way in any aspect, there would be a thunderous cry from both demoRATs & weak-kneed Repubs to impeach a Repub president. So far, there has only been a handful (less than 10) Repubs who have made any criticisn of 0dumboshit for closing open air parks or memorials.

On election night, what came to me as I went to bed was, “The other guy will win, and he will steal it.” I thought what was meant was Romney.

Bear in mind that I was in the middle of prayer.

Alex, my, no, our country is about done for. The blood of innocents by the millions now on our hands. Democrats not even being aghast at Gosnell’s baby feet collection.

I can’t and probably won’t ever leave. Unless the necklace murders start in earnest.

We may have another civil war here and could use your help. “Wish you were here.”

I was once fortunate enough to meet a 95 year old woman who got her PhD in Berlin the year Hitler came into power. I asked her how such a thing could happen, how some of the smartest people on earth could be duped by a madman. I never forgot what she said: “You’d be surprised what people with go along with if they think everyone is going along with it. By the time the people realized what was going on, it was too late and they were afraid to voice their concerns.”

You are absolutely correct! Emphasis on "the insane reverence paid to him" and "look at the losers who elected him".

And while I'm on this rant, WTF are Repub legislators (House & Senate) or Republican governors so incredibly scared shitless of 0dumb0? I can't imagine a single demoRAT governor who would knuckle under if a Repub president was acting in such a vindictive, mean, evil way to shut down not only federal parks or memorials but state ones as well.

It seems that only Scott Walker refused to capitulate to 0dumb0's orders to shut down state parks that receive a minimal amount of federal funding. But then Walker goes and makes a stupid pandering statement to blame both Repubs & demoRATs, when he knows good & damn well that the shutdown is 100% initiated by the dirty RAT bastard 0dumb0 & his cut-throat band of demoRAT legislators led by Reid & Pelosi.

Are every one of the Repub legislators & governors so absolutely scared shitless of 0dumb0shit? And if so, why is that?

I need to sign off for tonight..... getting too worked up and not good prep for Sunday School or Church tomorrow. Unless 0dumb0 has shut these down as well.....

I take that back. I heard about it, in a backhanded way, on Fox News. Our mayor glibly blamed Congress for cutting off one of only two ways in and out of this mountain valley. No real complaint from him so I guess I can’t blame the talking head for passing right by the obvious.
