LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Until very recently, the National Park Service was one of the least-loathed government agencies in the country. Now, with orders from on high to keep the public from visiting beloved parks and monuments the agency is developing a poor reputation.
It what looks like a spiteful move, the NPS even removed handles from water spigots along the Chesapeake and Ohio canal where bikers and joggers exercise as well as along the Great Allegheny Passage, just to ensure people don't get any water from them...

Insane....and these puppies obey. Kinda like how the Taliban works.
For those who dream of an armed revolution in the U.S., these government employees have shown us whose side they are eager to take - and it sure isn’t that of patriotic Americans. Worse yet, these Park Service weasels are paid with our tax money.
Note that these people are the ones carrying out this nonsense....so you can bet any large civil uprising will be met with a stronger arm.
So much for people saying Americans wouldn’t stop it....they are!
Let’s go put them back on!
Once Congress gets back in session, pass a law disarming all park rangers. When did the h*ll did they get weapons? Probably part of the Patriot Act. Citizens, there’s NOTHING patriotic about the Patriot Act.
words fail me —
Just read your post after posting myself saying about the same thing....this is not only showing us what other Americans can and will do...it’s also showing Obama who will or not do as he says.
The jokers that come with these ideas are probably going to get a bonus.
We’re paying them....
And the pumps don’t work
Cause the vandals
Took the handles.....
Nothing a Leatherman tool can’t handle. These gov’t employees make rocks look like super geniuses.
This petty bs by the NPS, probably ordered by the WH (0bummer) is almost unbelievable.
If there’s anything good to say about their pettiness it’s that it has to be converting many to Conservatives and Republicans.
beat me to it.
At many parks around here, they shut off the water this time of year, just in case of freezing pipes, etc. Just sayin’ it might have nothing to do with the shutdown...
National Park Service workers have gone from good guys to bad guys. They deserve to lose their jobs and everything they own.
Amazing just how many *ssholes are drawing a paycheck from the Obama Left and falling right into line.
And we so often hear that the military would never fire on Americans.
Orwell was right, he was just off by thirty years.
In an effort to appear useful....obama is seeing to it that.....workers are present at closed “facilities...
makes perfect sense when viewed with an eye towards surreal laughable propoganda...
water fountain handles on a bike path?
national security item NUMERO UNO!!
Wonder who composes Barry’s well-funded private army?
Check out this sequester bunch and wonder no more.
Lock and load, boys and girls.
Sound like a good fraud waste and abuse complaint.
he built a fire on mainstreet and shot it full of holes
OH MAMA CAN THIS REALLY be the END??
Makes you wonder if these kind of vermin would have volunteered for the SS.
This is becoming a compulsive fetish for some individuals who secretly enjoy hurting others. It’s a Sadist’s Holiday!
Here's Proof! :-)
Any candidate who promises to work to get rid of all of the National Parks has got my vote.
You can’t drink the King’s water.
we are witnessing the first wave of independently instigated PARODY Flash Mobs of One..
They’ve taken the toilet seats off all the toilets in the restrooms too, just in case someone sneaks in.
Excellent! I’d wager 0bummer is livid being things aren’t going quite as he expected. :-)
Are you sure it is not because it is getting cold outside?
They’re becoming the National Prick Service.
” these government employees have shown us whose side they are eager to take - and it sure isnt that of patriotic Americans.”
The lack of resignations from government, military, and other government entities over this administration is stunning to me.
I do not believe there are any limits to what these people would do to keep “their” checks coming.
Once honorable institutions cannot be counted upon to do the right thing.
Satirical Sabotage, the new SS!!!
you have to realize the Park Service has always been manned by biology majors and wildlife & recreation folks of the forestry departments at universities. Not the most politically conservatives folks.
I also have always questioned how many gov employees and military folks would say” I’m just following orders”
No, are you?
OMG, yer killin’ me!
LOL, or the National Putz Service!
I they ever put Obumbles in jail (where he belongs imho) I will throw the biggest block Tea Party ever seen out west. I will buy sparkling champagne, maybe smoke a cigar (or something else) although I gave up cigarettes last year.
just in case of freezing pipes, etc.”
But do they take the faucet handles?
What is the prevailing Federal wage for the plumbers required to do this?
Obama is spending more money trying to p**s people off, than is being saved by any “Shutdown”
