SERIOUSLY? National Park Service spitefully removes handles from water fountains

By Marshall Connolly, Catholic Online (NEWS CONSORTIUM) 10/8/2013

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...

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.

Jonathan Jarvis is the Director of the National Park Service. He is the Little Eichmann who is implementing Obama's orders.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

nobama-nazis...the Ranger Rick symbol is now Ranger DICK. Apparently, they are so concerned that they will somehow get their paycheck yanked, promotions gone and so forth, that they are willing to become the New Stassi or New Gestapo. Any respect I may have had for the Park Service people is quickly giving way to anger and disdain. “Just following orders” didn't work too well for the Nazis at Nuremberg.

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.

Think again.

Orwell was right, he was just off by thirty years.

” these government employees have shown us whose side they are eager to take - and it sure isn’t 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.

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”

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.
