Posted on 10/07/2013 9:28:04 AM PDT by AnAmericanMother
This has to be read to be believed.
A group of competitive trail riders, having just completed 75 and 50 mile endurance rides, were evicted from Talladega NF in the middle of the night. Exhausted horses and humans were forced to move trailers out of a pine grove in the dark under threat of fines and prosecutions.
The local park rangers were sympathetic, but U.S. Marshals were brought in (no doubt at great expense) to ensure that the rangers caused as much pain as possible despite their personal sympathy.
Coming soon to a government function near you . . . < cough cough Obamacare cough cough >
I hope these are Obama voters.
Red lines on asphalt. Red lines on water. Now a red line in the forest.
Did somebody give Barry a box of red crayons for Christmas or something?
Guys like Obama have no trouble finding people to carry out his orders.
Maybe we should start sending red crayons to Obama, as a form of protest
Time to play cow boys and park rangers ?
Good grief. Well, in addition to making it clear that this is an act of personal spite, directed against users who are most likely to be in the group despised by Obama, it also shows that he doesn't trust all of his minions to carry out his orders and needs to have another set of enforcers.
All these things are OWNED by the people, not the government. I wish I was home because I’d go marching up to one of these closed monuments and dare them to arrest me.
Are they not paid agents of the government?
" Yes Luke, I know the house tried to keep them open, if not simply because closing them costs MORE, but that would have lost leverage for the dems so it wasn't happening. Still, there was an even bigger lesson in it...the government is the most inefficient runner of business imaginable!!"
People are getting the message. The MSM is following the Obama Playbook but Facebook and Twitter are getting the truth out.
The pendulum will swing, and my prime hope is that triple that pain will be inflicted on the perps. (Perp does not equal those poor folks at the front line...perp means Pelosi, Reid, and the Stinking piece of White Sewage posing as a human being.) May the flies be with him.
Oh, forgot, they already are.
Obama is slime.
The fedgov drones carrying out these orders are pricks just as much as the dictator.
In fact, I think he's targeting certain national monuments, parks and even land just because it's unlikely that there will be many Obama voters among the users.
Mt bro-in-law is a big outdoors guy, he was saying all corps of engineer land is closed. So no lake fishing for him (in our area anyway) and no hunting. Tell it to Obama, tell it to Reid.
Isn’t the White House on Federal property?
Evict those living there now until this “crisis” is over.
Another action by the Spitehouse
How is it that the Obamas and Bidens get to stay in their residences? Aren’t THOSE on Federal property?
TNB... that’s whats become of out government.
You don't own anything the government can't take...
Don't believe me? Stop paying fees, fines and government taxes and see what happens...They'll beat you, shoot you, kill you and or throw you in a cage..
I wish I were joking.
We need to declare the occupant of the White Hut insane and invoke the 25th Amendment.
Park Service, and Forestry, and BLM should be defunded and disbanded, and the lands they manage returned to the states.
If the states want the former federal personnel, let them hire them and pay them. But as federal agencies they should cease to exist. We’re broke. We don’t need to be paying people to manage lands that should not be federal from the beginning. We certainly don’t need to be paying people who are willing to act as Obama’s personal catspaws.
Do not defy the King. That is the lesson to be learned here serfs.
Built by public tax funds. So in reality we do own it. The government manages it. And manages to screw it up ...
Does anybody else suspect Obummer might be throwing all these sparks in the hopes of setting off the powder keg?
We have been close to losing our collective temper for quite some time now, but all these provocations have me nervous. He is poking the hornet’s nest and I believe he has a motive behind it all. And we’re not gonna like it.
Heh, heh. Good idea.
These are wonderful exercises by the fascists to see how docile the sheeple are. So far, it’s looking pretty good for the fascists, particularly the degree with which the media are cooperating in hiding what’s going on right now.
You think ya own it do ya?
Tell ya what, drive over to the local government owned park and drive right in and ignore the locked gates those with guns at the entrances...As ya drive by, tell them you own the place and they can go to hell.
Report back mr. dancer.
Further thoughts on protest- would be send a box of crayons, but remove the red crayon, I getting tired of the red lines- make him use a different color.
I vote for hot pink to match his fetching personality
Well it’s Ms. Dancer but no matter .... I’m talking about monuments like that WWII one and Arlington cemetery for another. I think it’d be more like being arrested for not leaving. Wonder what would happen if thousands of WWII vets got arrested for not leaving. They showed up but left.
Forgot about the Army Corpse of Engineers. they own and operate the Cape Cod Canal and the Sagamore, The Bourne and the Rail Road bridges.
Having watched “Mr. Roberts” last night I could not help but think, we see this again with Zero as Captain John Morton. We The People, are the crew of the “Reluctant” and are to dance to the whims of Capt. Zero. When we don”t dance, he will remove the things rightfully ours to enjoy.
I await, even a milquetoast such as Ensign Pulver to stand-up and heave the Palm Tree(Hairy Reid) over board. Then tell Zero;”Captain, it is I, Ensign Pulver, and I just threw your stinkin’ palm tree overboard! Now what’s all this crud about no movie(open museums) tonight? “
One can only wish!
I can imagine the moonbats on the Cape Cod Commission hailing their hero if he shut down the bridges.
For the Piping Plovers' sake, for the dunes, for the single source aquifer - all hail!!
I was an endurance rider for over 25 years. I double damn guarantee you that permits were issued & PAID FOR by the ride managers of this event.
This wasn’t an outlaw event. Not in the least.
Many endurance rides are held on state & Federal land, since so many miles for trail are needed. Those permits are procured way in advance & are not cheap.
This is another example of Obama’s cavalier attitude about America.
It’s like time for put up or shut up. I keep reading how people here like to puff up and say “try to take my guns” or some such rhetoric. Now would be a good time to revolt against this Obozo’s national closures stupidity......
The Conservation Commission makes Zero look reasonable.
The New Orleans levy system, much of the Mississippi River navigation, and flood control all over are under the ACOE.
I agree. His targets for closure seem to have a pattern.
That is a good idea! remember the tea bags?
Anybody still wondering if these thugs would fire upon civilians if ordered to?
Regardless of what government owned park you’re referring to, if you try to enter and they don’t want you to, they’ll beat you, shoot you and or kill you or throw you in a cage.
My point is, you don’t own these tax paid parks...The government does.
I honestly believe that some where in this fine country is some Man or Woman that will stand up and others will follow that person, to right this country.
This AM, Judge Andrew P. Napolitano was on Fox Business news and was talking about our(?) government allowing “Mug Shots” to be published when it is a crime. How long before they publish a list of gun owners?
Never mind, they already have.
If a person was to think of resistance to a “take away”, one would have to plan waaaaaaaay ahead. Capt. John Morton has to many Sgt. Shultz’s on the take.
If you fail to take your med.s, they may just shoot you.
Time for some heavy duty Civil Disobedience?
What is a half million people showed up to a place they aren't “supposed to be in”?
The Democrat shutdown could easily be solved if the rigid inflexible tyrant would give up on his dream to make everyone miserable with his UnAffordable Healthcare Act
Not a matter of “if”, but “when”.
When they do... Be ready, ‘cause S is going to HTF quick after that.
I have sent this to Michelle Malkin, Fox news, etc. I hope it gets publicity as it is the perfect example of : No common sense, Spitefulness, causing dangerous situations to make a political point....and probably many, many more!! Anyone have other ideas how to expose this latest stunt????
How long are the people going to stand for this abuse? How long are we going to be compliant with the Gestapo-like tactics of this administration? It is time to stand against them! Before they crush us all.
Well, there’s the crux then...
No where does it say in the Constitution that the FedGov gets to run a Federal park system. Nor that they can deny the public access to public lands.
