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?
You shut down water lines by closing their supply valves, not by removing faucet handles. (Nice excuse-making though. Very creative of you.)
I see an outstanding marketing opportunity here. Go check out one of the faucets and determine what kind of handle is needed. Then go to Lowes or Home Depot or Wal-Mart and buy a case or two. Then set up a table near the entrance and rent the handles or sell them at a profit.
Of course, you could always sell lemonade!
If an NPS eco-fascist thug lives near you, wait for the slug to leave and use a hand sledgehammer to knock all the handles off his doors. If his Mercedes is sitting in the driveway, repeat the process. It’s time for community harassment.
Now you know how Hitler was so successful. We see all of these American bureaucrats who are, “Just following orders.”
Wait until those orders include bashing the heads of American citizens with billy clubs.
The rape of the American people is just beginning.
Obama cheated his way to reelection. Now he has carte blanche to do whatever he pleases for these second 4 years.
Take a look at Boehner and the rest of the Republicans in Congress. Nearly all of them are totally incapable of dealing with Obama the tyrant. Too bad for America.
I believe it was the Patriot Act that did make them park police, instead of just rangers.
"...'cause the vandals took the handles!"
This goes to show you, a bureauKaRATZ is still nothing more than a RATZ.
And the RATZ only consideration is his/her PAYEEECHECK! So that they can go home and feed their scut, feral pig family.
Its how tyrannies operate. Without feral pig RATZ, a tyrant could never succeed.
Go read Animal Farm. Read it twice.
No one should be surprised that these RATZ would behave the way they do. Its the nature of a RATZ to act this way.
And the kenyan knows this and uses it.
If and when these RATZ are put on trial for violating their oath to uphold and DEFEND the Constitution, their NUMBER ONE defense will be: But, but, but, I was just doing what I was TOLD!! (UNT I VAZ CHUST FOLLOWINK ORDERS!)
And they are too stupid to know how badly they have been played, and how much America really does HATE them for that stupidity.
Park Service has morphed into the Gestapo.
Has anyone determined that Obama had the authority to shut it down in the first place?
IF he thinks he can control the entire shoreline of the USA out 12 miles, how come this isn’t more widespread???
Yeah, and the moon is made of green cheese.
A new kind of boat people down there.
Bravo! Well done.
I think the little creeps think their paycheck is covered only by liberals. They're wrong. Let's get a private company to run the parks... these 'rangers' are thugwannabees...
Who exactly is PAYING these government bullies is my question too. It is interesting that even with a shutdown, Big Government manages to spend money on useless money wasting crap.
***the NPS even removed handles from water spigots ***
Vise grips and pliers ain’t out of style! Works for me!
***Until very recently, the National Park Service was one of the least-loathed government agencies in the country.***
I remember reading, about 40 years ago, some NP ranger becoming upset when a kid called him a “Pig Ranger”.
If we think this is bad, it’s nothing compared to the crap they can do to us once they control medical care.
Some of those bikers could get sick or have a heat stroke... and the little bullshit ‘rangers’ won’t care... This is a taste of what’s to come...
Park Rangers are armed but our troops on military bases aren’t.
Does it seem to you as if the federal government has declared war on its citizens?
Superb. I’m stealing.
They aren’t all gov. bullies...in some cases they’re hired temp thugs...but we’re paying for them. I watched a video of that in Phila. where they are “guarding” Independence HAll....they got called on it too by a reporter/journalist....good video too.
I think you have described it. The government employees are waging war against those who promote the private sector. The free market system is under attack with regulations and taxes. They do not consider that they depend upon the public sector for economic survival. They think we are "Wacko Birds" for giving resistance and saying it. We only hope that the democratic process in a republic will fix what is wrong soon enough. If not, the idiots who promoted their socialist Utopia will go hot.
Next the air will be taken away! Please don’t drink the water in the streams as you will get beaver fever another gift from Obobo the great.
I am praying for that day.
I took down my flag when the SCOTUS said 0vomitcare was legal and replaced it with the Gadsden Flag. When 0vomit goes to jail, my American flag goes back up.
need a picture of what’s left to be ready to epoxy a working handle on.
Hey! Don’t give them any ideas. If they had an ounce of brains they would have thought of that and done it already.
The Spite House!
bb is confident that his ardent supporters are so stupid they won’t process how petty all this is.
While I understand the anger, I don't think it's fair to blame this on the park rangers, these decisions were made at higher levels.
Have had water fountains turned off during the winter in the north.
Ordinarily, these NPS critters would have to plan on going home and living among the human citizens.
For some strange reason, they are behaving like they expect the human citizens to disappear, or something.
A childish prank
Do you suppose it's because they are actually a bunch of left-over tree huggers, finally showing their true colors?
Q: What do you get when you cross a union-thug with a tree-hugger?
A: A Forest Ranger.
The feds do have jurisdiction in this area of Fla. bay it happens to be within the Everglades Nat.Park. Trouble is none of this had to happen its jut more of the “making it hurt” philosophy the higher ups have told the rangers to do to us nation wide.
Thanks on their behalf. I think the captains played it smart by not venturing into park waters since they had extra rangers there to patrol and had boats ready to confiscate anyone’s skiff who dared venture into park waters.Its almost gestapoesque,weird for down here. It’s usually pretty laid back down here.
nope, had em a long time. need them for animals and for loser thugs that do cause issues iun the parks. especially in large parks. probablk noit so much smaller, more urban parks.
I did that, too!
Great FReepers think alike.
