Skip to comments.A Barrycade too far?Regime over reach on national parks stirs hornet`s nest.
Posted on 10/09/2013 12:09:31 PM PDT by nomad
A number of us freepers have been posting stories about the over reach by the regime on the National Parks closures. This is a populist issue that along with all the others associated with this shutdown has, according to a recent poll, driven O`Bozo`s approval ratings down to 37%. I believe we need to jump on this and hammer it home to the "low info voters". A simple and petty example of the vindictiveness of the "Spite House" such as this parks issue illustrates it for even the blind.
And this is a random listing of various articles on the issue presented with no comment http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3075809/posts
And this is my original posting http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3075009/posts
After this fiasco, I hope the House passes a bill to disarm the Park rangers. They should not be armed, period.
This past weekend I sent an email to all of the other property owners asking them if anyone had been up there to make sure the road had not been blocked. I got a couple snarky responses, but I sent them the article about cabin owners on Lake Mead being kicked out.
I explained that if the FS could do that to the people at Lake Mead, the equivalent would be them gating our road and putting a sign on it saying we couldn't even walk in to our properties. I think I got my point across.
So far, the FS has done nothing, but I wouldn't put it past them. We're just keeping our heads down hoping they don't remember us....
Not just National Parks but National Forest which is a big part of the west (among other areas).
You done good. If you start lecturing them, they’re going to stop up their ears. But if they start thinking - and I think a lot of millenials (and even a lot of park rangers charged with enforcing this horrible stuff) are beginning to think - who knows what will happen?
They were a thoroughly politically indoctrinated generation, but enough of the American spirit somehow crept in that they’re a little annoyed by this overreach. That is, they never thought before that this country is not about the success of “the government,” it’s about the freedom and happiness and success of its citizens - such as them.

We need to keep up the pressure on the Spite House.
I love it! Akin to “hoovervilles” only in this case it truly fits.
Oh I have been a part time student at a local community college and have dealt with these types before. Their self absorption can be an Achilles`s heel.
What I heard was “my trail”, “my time to commune with mother nature”, but at least they seemed to sympathize with the perception that others were like them, being denied “their park time”.
Try going to the social media sites and search the term, its catching on. So is the term, “The Spite House”.
We are a nation of non-creative wusses.
We can’t have 500-20,000 people doing flash mobs on the barrycades, picking them up, and delivering them to a location on federal land where they are CONSIDERABLY out of the way?
I cannot believe that people are just standing and looking at the barrycades like cattle at a gate. Pulling my hair out.
Amen lurk. NPS employees “following orders” should be shamed and shunned by their communities.
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3076806/posts Are there cracks forming in our armor? We need to keep up the pressure on the usual RINO suspect.
don’t have enough cash to open it,but they have enough to hire mercs to guard it.
makes sense to me.
My cabin is over 100 miles away, but if I hear that the FS has blocked access, I plan to head up there with a battery operated Sawzall....
Do you remember when O`Bozo said: “...we need a domestic force as well armed and funded as the military...”? Well are these part of the brown shirt army he was talking about?
