The Park Service removes the handles from water fountains to make it hard on visitors and travelers. How many employees are there doing this kind of disservice, and how much is that costing. At the same time we are told there is no money to keep the parks open.
And what did it cost to install fences to keep people, including veterans in wheelchairs, out of the WWII Memorial?
And what is it costing to guard the ocean and keep people from using the beaches around Key Biscayne and the Florida Keys?
And what has it cost to guard military bases to prevent Catholic priests from giving services to those in the military?
In Yellowstone Park the rangers have forbid autos to stop, or people to get out to look around. People were not even allowed to use the restroom facilities, and had to drive 2 1/2 hours out of the park before they could reach toilets. (I will respectfully not state here what this citizen would have done to relieve himself!)
Face the facts. A criminal administration is running our government.
Heads should roll in subsequent investigations of this so-called shutdown. Any government employee, including park rangers, who participated in this affront and hostile dis-service to the American people should be fired, even if they were told to do it, and were “just doing their job.”
(Remember the Nuremberg Trials, and the Nazis who ran the death camps who justified or excused their atrocities, saying that they were only doing what they were told to do.)
Numerous heads should roll for all of this, right after they roll for the NSA, Fast and Furious, IRS, Benghazi, and Muslim Brotherhood scandals, and other crimes of the Obama Administration.
(One is reminded of the Clinton era with its scandals too numerous to mention. Recall the 50 or 60 people in Arkansas and Washington, D.C. who were allegedly “eliminated” by the by the Clinton Mafia.)
All money legislation comes from the House of Representatives.
And in the Republican controlled House of Representatives, numerous bills have been passed to fund and keep the government open and running, but Harry Reid and the Democrat controlled Senate will not even bring these bills up for a vote; and the illegitimate occupant of the White House says that even if the bills were to be passed he would veto them.
Still most of the stupid American people blame the Republicans in Congress, because the controlled media tells them that this is where the problem is.
Holy Scripture tells us the future, if the people do not wake up and become informed and righteous:
“And they did not understand until the flood came and swept them away.” (Matthew 24:39)
