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...

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”
Good. I don’t care. I don’t spend money on socialists anyway. They need the money that socialist tourists spend on services, fuel, parks, fees, resorts, etc., more than I need to spend money on them.
If this cold civil war ever goes hot, many of these government employees will be like many of the NOPD cops in the wake of Katrina: holed-up somewhere safe, with as much government-owned property (vehicles, fuel, ammo) as they can sneak out the door.
I wonder if anyone actually witnessed the handles being removed. Seems more likely the work of vandals capitalizing on the reduced security presence due to furloughs. Any reports of Zer0 or Harry Reid lurking in the area?
This is beyond pathetic. Salazar should be fired.
Its the typical biased POS you would expect from them. The first of four photos,the one everyone sees of course, was of a neighbor of mine who blames it on the GOP. The Herald of course does not have the guts to actually claim its the GOP’s fault but we already know where they stand. Me more than most since I wrote for those a-holls for 11 years.
I had a bunch of friends there heading the thing up. I had to work or would have been there as well.
One of my best friends Capt. Randy Towe headed the entire mission up and gave a speech on vhf channel 79 and a bull horn. These guys are losing money big time and will have a really tough time rescheduling their clients if they are able to do that at all.
WE are fast heading to a prime time fall fishing peak so we are hoping they will open the park portion of Fla. Bay soon.
Truth is zero has the discretion to open it up but who knows which of his lawyers is whispering in his ear on this one.
So now they are trying to kill illegals by depriving them of water?
Note to self... start carrying a multi tool again...
haha can i post that on my facebook?
“The lack of resignations from government, military, and other government entities over this administration is stunning to me.”
Could it be that the government already has a majority Communist staff?
How many FReepers remember the “None Dare Call It Treason”
program/rallies in the late 50s, early 60s?
I attended one at the Memphis auditorium when I was a teen. The goal was to inform Americans as to how the Communist intended to take over America.
This makes no sense. What if an illegal became dehydrated?
