Feds evict elderly couple from their home, cite shutdown
The Washington Examiner ^ | OCTOBER 6, 2013 | Joel Gehrke

Posted on 10/06/2013 6:27:44 AM PDT by sheikdetailfeather

National Park Service officials cited the government shutdown as the reason for ordering an elderly Nevada couple out of their home, which sits on federal land.

"Unfortunately overnight stays are not permitted until a budget is passed and the park can reopen," an NPS spokesman explained to KTNV.

Ralph and Joyce Spencer, aged 80 and 77, respectively, own their home, but the government owns the land on which it sits.

"I had to be sure and get his walker and his scooter that he has to go in," Joyce Spencer told the local news outlet. "We're not hurt in any way except it might cost me if I have to go buy more pants."

Similarly, the NPS forced privately-operated inns on the Blue Ridge Parkway to close during the shut down.

“We've been told to make life as difficult for people as we can," an unnamed park ranger told the Washington Times. "It's disgusting.”

This will really help sells of homes located on Federal land.

Seriously, it costs a lot of money for the federal government to have a house sit on their land.

I hope the magic negro does not decide to try and evict western ranchers from BLM and Forest Service land. There would not be sufficient private or State land to support the livestock which would result in a total ecconimic colapse affecting food supplies as well.

The more ridiculous this gets, the it appears the national park employees are acting like union thugs trying to get their way. I’m sure Washington told them to close the parks, but they are going the extra step identifying people to hurt.

Why isn't the NPS shut down? Who authorized these goons to keep operating?

The regime claims to spread the wealth, the only thing they are good at is spreading the pain.

How is it that the government "owns land"?
It's owned by the Public. Not the overlords in Washington.

Well this appears to be an isolated case and while I feel bad for the couple it is no worse than the private companies on federal land that have gotten the boot. At least the businesses appear to know their rights. Public space belongs to everyone. If you can’t own it you can’t occupy it. They have a right to camp wherever and whenever they want, without a permit. Hopefully these cases will start to get some traction.

“We've been told to make life as difficult for people as we can," an unnamed park ranger told the Washington Times. "It's disgusting.”

I'm sure the voters can make life difficult for the public servants who forgot who they are supposed to serve. One reason for the protections federal employees have by law is that in theory they are non-partisan. If the federal employees, including NPS in particular, are shown to be just a partisan arm of the current administration, then they should, for example, be able to be fired by a new administration.

No doubt the voters can elect representatives who will change the laws governing the relationship between the federal employees and the rest of the public. In fact this shutdown was caused in part by the unwillingness of congressional staff members to be subject to the same health care mandate as everyone else.

Federal employees who implement partisan policies to "make life as difficult as we can" for the public shouldn't be surprised when the voters decide that they'd like to make the life of the federal employees a little less pleasant. After all, what better way is there to reduce our deficit than reducing the federal payroll and retirement costs?

He “should” evict all if he had a clue what the words hypocrite or selective enforcement meant.

You folks need to step back.  Nation land, parks, wildlife refuges, et al, belong to me, to you, and to all.  They do NOT belong to your p_Resident.  You do not have to obey unlawful orders.  As a matter of fact, you have a duty to resist such orders.

You do know that Hitler’s Brownshirts were “just following orders”....

You also have to give some of the ‘credit’ to the Spineless R’s that have been ‘taking it in the shorts’ for years AND the clowns that keep voting this same idiotic trash (on both sides of the aisle) back into office.

Apparently the REAL MEANING behind BO Obozo’s ‘YOU DIDN’T BUILD IT’ tirade was supposed to mean

‘YOU DIDN’T BUILD IT, I DID’....BO

Good idea for ‘sign’ ...
