Tax-paying, hard-working families aren’t letting White House shutdown politics stop them from enjoying America’s beauty. They’re defying the orange cones at Mount Rushmore. They’re breaching the barrycades at Zion National Park. And now, the Badlands of South Dakota.

Noelle Bruno tweets that she and her family made it through Mount Rushmore despite the White House obstacles:

Noelle’s husband’s act of defiance has been meme-ified on social media.

They’re not alone.

Occupy America, America!

            Well, we know this regime has cost us $1.5 TRILLION more a year than the Treasury takes in as taxes. Exactly, what and where they spend it all might be revealed if the House keeps sending ind. bills to the Sen. as the House used to do before everyone got lazy and cobbled together “omnibus” bills no one read at the last min., and then passed it to avoid a “shut down.”

            I have no idea but I’d really like to take a road trip and replace all those signs with something that reads “Because of Obama’s bitch fit this park is closed.” Or at least something along those lines.

            but the golf course he plays on Andrews AFB is NOT closed. also michelle’s web site is still running, but other government sites are down. I guess you just have to be king.

          • k9luver

            Workers were called in on Oct. 1st to do “an orderly shut down of the government.” I work for another one of the land management agencies and worked all day on Tues. then a couple of hours on Wens. I am being called back to work today. At the time, it looked like we would only get paid for the hours that we worked–whenever an actual bill is passed to reopen. I guess the house passed a bill that will pay federal workers–again, when the bill gets passed. For now, we have people working who will not get paid until this debacle is over. Personally, along with my co-workers and employees, we’d rather be working and doing our jobs! The Park Service people didn’t go into their line of work to keep people out of the parks. This is not their doing. I had to close a picnic area that a woman had reserved for MONTHS for her wedding on the 5th. All I can do is shake my head at the stupidity of BOTH sides and their unwillingness to compromise. And for the toilets, I’m sooo looking forward to cleaning up the feces that will be spread all over the walls by people who are angry over things being shut down–NOT! And the gang graffiti that will be all over everything because we haven’t been up on the mountain to clean it up every day. You may think these pictures are “cute” but I deal with the underbelly segment that REALLY tear everything up.

          • Christine Voss

            I appreciate hearing, finally, from…a park ranger? Is that what you are? It’s nice to get that perspective.
            However, it doesn’t address the issue that it cost more to patrol these places, to set up cones and barrycades, than it would have to pay the employees to do their normal job instead of a different job.
            It doesn’t address the issue that in 17 previous shut-downs, there was no need to close national monuments or barricade them or ‘close the ocean,’ or private businesses, or kick old people out of their homes, or threaten Catholic priests with arrest.
            I think, too, it’s easy to complain about ‘not compromising,’ but Obamacare is such a massive overreach of government authority and increased taxation, and control over our health, that it *should not* be compromised with!
            Furthermore, Republicans HAVE offered bills to allows funding for many of these things.

      • Rebekah Lynn

        The president introduced The Affordable Care Act, but he has no enforcement in Congress. Right now, the reason the government is shut down is because Congress passed the law but are now trying to repeal it. And yes, the President doesn’t want it repealed. But the problem is that our congressional representatives can’t compromise. The President has no power to end the shutdown because it is the power of CONGRESS to pass laws to approve the budget, decide on Obamacare, and so on and so forth. Traditionally, the President did very little to introduce laws, but now society expects the President to fix the problems. If something goes wrong it is all his fault, not the fault of the people with actual power to make laws and the responsibility to make laws, aka CONGRESS. This is not the fault of the “child-president”, its the fault of our arrogant and stubborn Congress.

          • jess

            That could be true about martial law. But I really think it’s his way of placing the blame (as usual) on the GOP by showing us how THEY are the ones at fault for all these closings and the “removal” of our rights. He doesn’t do ANYTHING without some sleazebag reason behind it. The buck DOESN’T stop with him….ever.

          • wakethesheeple

            Agree, been his plan all along. Declare martial law, confiscate guns, round up everyone unwilling to go along with his coup, nullify the Constitution and Bill of Rights, confiscate all personal property, turn everything left over to the UN for their “New World Order.” He can’t do that so long as we have our inalienable rights and our Constitution. His plan is nearly complete.

          • Babyboomer1960

            Imagine his surprise if he did so, and the military by and large, ignored him? Or worse yet, came and arrested HIM!?

          • tammy

            He has gotten rid of most Generals who would stand up to him. Now he only has yes men. Why do you think he is trying to get rid of the Christian soldiers?

          • wakethesheeple

            Because the “Terrorist-in-Chief’s “Civilian National Security Force” (His version of the Nazi “SS”) is Muslim (as is the Muslim Brotherhood POTUS). Christian soldiers will not carry out jihadist orders to burn churches and kill Christians (coming to a neighborhood near you soon!).

            He only let mention of the CNSF slip once during his first presidential campaign before his handlers reigned him in, but here it is folks:

            Maybe a bit of dark humor, but fantasy? I do not consider the current state of our nation and the behavior of those elected to lead her to be anything I would fantasize about, but then I’m not reconciled with much of what seems trendy/cool these days.

            Just wondering, would we all really converge? I’d love to think we’d all be brave enough, but something tells me, we’d hold back as a rational thing to do. Personally, I’d like to think I’d die for my country.

            “would we all really converge? I’d love to think we’d all be brave enough, but something tells me, we’d hold back as a rational thing to do. “

            A good question and one that each individual will have to answer based on their own red line, their beliefs, and their spine.

            Let’s all hope the fed up voters can show up in sufficient numbers on November 4th, 2014 to turn out the elected rascals.

            If so, we’ll not have to find out who’s willing to stand for the Constitution and the freedoms protected therein versus who will kneel before the ever growing, all omnipotent nanny state.

            If not, we all have a lot of soul-searching to do regarding our desire to cling to our Constitutional Republic, a nation of laws, versus to give up/in to a nation ruled arbitrarily by tyrants.

            I think they can because our guard units have been deployed to the middle east several times. They just sorta say “You’re on active duty now”. I was deployed stateside in 03 and 04. I’m retired now so they can’t call me for this mess.

        That’s why the government built the FEMA “reeducation camps” (over 800 to date) to incarcerate American people who protest and/or dissent tyranny until they demonstrate a significant “attitude adjustment.”

        • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (the true one)

          And as the Weatherman Underground leaders, many of whom mentored Obama, declared that such camps were the first step in eliminating 25-30% of the population of the United States to claim total domination.

          Honestly, I believe Reid and Obama are mad enough to actually condone such behavior.

      or what is scary is that even one of them is getting payed to not do their job and pretend they are closed. it cost more to create the illusion of being closed than to just do their jobs . which is to serve us the people, their real bosses. if one park employee ever tries to touch a citizen to eject them it is justifiable homocid to kill them in self defense.

But obama has stated he will not negotiate. 17 shutdowns and EVERY, single one has been negotiated. But not obama, it’s his way or the highway. Please do some research.

      • redeemed357

        We need to help with the cost of the cones. It cost money to put the cones up so we ought to put cones one on top of another. If everyone visiting these parks would put one cone on top of another—and another visitor another cone—these cones could be picked up by the workers at their leisure—-because at some point they will become a hazard and it will eventually cost more to remove them than it did to put them out. WE AMERICANS ALWAYS LIKE TO HELP OTHERS! :-) You DO believe me right?

            Park Ranger: “Yes. I put the cones out. I didn’t see who removed the cones though.” In my line of work, we call that “Malicious compliance”

          • SHOTGUN285

            having read the legal definition of malicious compliance, I don’t see how that applies here.

          • Donovan Hill

            They’re there to put out the cones. If they’re not looking when the cones are moved, they are complying with their instructions…. to the letter….

            I guess my understanding of the term is different from the wikipedia entry.

          • SHOTGUN285

            Well, the way I read it, it’s a malicious act designed to cause significant damage to an organization or business. It was made to sound very severe. That’s all I meant is that this action (or inaction) isn’t malicious (at least in my opinion), it just means they are doing the bare minimum to keep their job til this temper tantrum passes. But to you this may seem malicious.

          • Donovan Hill

            I have used what I consider “Malicious Compliance” in the past, but only to highlight the absurdity of a particular rule I’ve had to follow. It was never meant to significantly harm anyone (though it did damned well inconvenience them). I should probably call it something more like “Protestive Compliance” in this case (and when I use it).

      • tiredofcriminals

        When the Nazis complained that all they were doing was following rules…they were still brought to trial,l prosecuted or killed. Following these spiteful orders against the American people issued by some idiot is not an excuse. If all of you that claim you don’t like what the government tells you to do – then there is no fear of a job loss. Like us, if you don’t stand together, you will fall. STAND TOGETHER – look the other way, find a way to object and honor the will of the majority of Americas…after all, we do pay your salary.

    This is all just a set up. Obama will soon be circumventing congress. He truly is like a 3-yr-old toddler in a grown man’s body.

    • wakethesheeple

      He’s been circumventing Congress since he was elected — remember his ducking the elegibility requirements of the Constitution/Congress and on his first day on the job his first official act as President was to issue an Executive Order 13489 that sealed all his records so they couldn’t be investigated.

        They should have been invesitigated as part of the vetting process. A huge failure on the part of the American press

        • wakethesheeple

          Not just “A huge failure on the part of the American press” but a huge FAIL on the part of the U.S. Congress — a congressional committee did, after all, thoroughly investigate John McCain’s eligibility, questioning his birth in Panama — but he was natural born (TWO American citizen parents) and born while parents stationed at the Coco Solo Naval Air Station, Panama Canal Zone (U.S. Territory at the time). Because we had a democratic house and senate at the time, a congressional committee scrutinized McCain trying to prove that he didn’t meet the Natural Born Citizen requirement of the Constitution. But, because Obama previously had been a member of that committee they gave him a total and complete pass on confirmation of the Constitutional eligibility requirements to become POTUS. They knew if they investigated Obama, there’s no way he would pass – so they just elected to NOT investigate him.

      actually, obama is the front man, the puppet. his handlers carefully chose him for his narcissistic sociopath bully attitude. they also needed a manageable mulatto, to put it kindly. the plan was years in the making, even before he was born. we bet the Commies searched their party for years until they found college boy obama. his white commie grandparents began grooming him at age 12 with Frank Marshall Davis, black commie (probably obama’s birthfather) and Davis put him in with the Chicago Communist party when he was going to be in college. an Arab muslim (al-Mansour) and the Chicago Communist party paid obama’s college way. trace his steps. it’s all right there.

      GlennBeck has been instructing his listeners for years how the Communist syste works, how their playbook reads. this shoving us now, insulting our FAMILIES & VETERANS, this obama hatred for America showing itself like this openly NOW, is textbook Commie playbook.

      1) The House passed a bill to pay for ENTIRE gov’t, except for that wretched obamacare fiasco. Reid & Obama said no. Their choice, but also THEIR responsibility.
      2) It is always the president that is remembered when things go wrong or right. From memory, can you tell me who the speaker of the house was in 1953? Probably not. But you can probably tell me who the president was. This will backfire on Obama & the dems. He’s closing things that have NEVER been closed in any shutdown by any president, whether republican or dimwitcrat.

    • sludog

      Have you been asleep for the last few days, There have been several sources that have said the call is coming from the white house to close open air areas, I don’t have a specific link that said the white house said to place the cones. But if it walks like a duck, sh*ts all over everything like a duck, it just might be a duck. What is sad is that Americans know how petulant this administration is and actions like this and many others taking place during this shutdown don’t surprise them. http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2013/10/04/feds-force-private-san-francisco-restaurant-to-close-because-of-shutdown-and-the-fallout-is-heartbreaking-for-some-brides/ http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2013/10/02/shutdown-white-house-ordering-privately-run-privately-funded-parks-to-close/

      Aside from Obama going golfing last Sunday instead of working on preventing a shutdown, his bizarre unwillingness to negotiate (to the point where he’s throwing public hissy fits), and the fact that it’s his administration issuing the orders to close up these places?

      “I guess people will believe whatever Faux News tells them.”

      Oh, if only people watched MSNBC instead, right?

      “lay the blame where it belongs.”

      Yeah, on President “I refuse to negotiate” and Senator “Let’s block funding for the NIH.”

  • Scott Snoopy

    This begs the bigger question–WHY DOES THE FEDERAL GUBMINT own all of this property? The “national park system” was started under the first great liberal progressice Republican TR; and now the fed owns millions of acres. Now we see the over reach of the girlie man “president” and his closing the public treasures created for Americans. It is time to end this. I was on that road 2wks ago and I’d be go to hell if those cones would have stopped me from looking and seeing this. There are signs posted at the “entrance” to the parking area which also state no stopping and parking–I wanted a photo of Mt Rushmore and was not going to pay the fed $11 to park for the privilege so I parked under one of those signs and took my photos.

    It is time that We The People, open these sights and monuments…the girlie man thinks he is a lil dictator and this needs to end. The system cannot handle a mass of civil disobedience and using the parks we have our taxes extorted to pay for.

  • Michelle

    Defy tyranny! Keep up the good work! Obama doesn’t own and pay for these parks! We do!

    this entire mess is on obama. Breitbart has a partial list of what obama has pulled as he ‘shoves’ America (step 2 in Communist TakeOver playbook) —everything THE GOP has offered America will pay for, not the Fed Govt– but obama says he will VETO ANYTHING the GOP offers. –that list is 3 pages of fine print, too. we just printed it out for church.

    this entire debacle is on obama. he dragged America (kicking & screaming NO) into Socialism, he has created massive debt with his embezzled ‘green’ scams,
    obama has deliberately created SUCH personal divisions (race, religion, every category imaginable) between Americans that we are on EDGE of CIVIL WAR II.

    obama’s advisor Rogers estimated 23 MILLION Americans will die in a Civil War II before the rest would roll over in surrender like sheep. that is also 23 million less to resist a complete Communist take-over. to “transform America” like he said.

    obama needs to be arrested and convicted. asap.

        The national parks “belong to the American people, and the American
        people should have the right to come in,” says National Park Service
        Director Jonathan Jarvis. “But the only way I can protect these places
        during this period is to shut them down.”

        Jarvis has furloughed
        21,000 park rangers, technicians and other employees given Congress’
        failure to enact a fiscal year 2014 federal budget. The result is

      Seems the shutdowns last longer when we have democrat presidents. And by the way, notice that some of these were caused by Democrat vs. Democrat arguments. Now go pound sand.

      • Rayne

        And NONE of those shutdowns included the closing of our parks, national monuments, and/or memorials…Obama is a petulant child.

      • Grey Wolf

        Well, at least you can perform rudimentary research, but you spoiled it with that childish sand remark. Also, the relationships between the durations and the party in charge shows a correlation, but not causation. Try again. Try harder. Now go pound keys.

          “not actually having anything to say”? You have done nothing but through around insults.

          • Grey Wolf

            Not true. I have actually posted points to back up my assertions, but you are used to believing whatever you like, regardless of whether it’s true or not. Also, I have never once called anyone here outside of their screenname…like you did. Hypocrisy must be a Republican thing.

          • Jeff Coil

            You haven’t “backed up” anything. You completely ignore the two facts that prove your “Republicans closed the parks” statement to be either totally ignorant or a shameless lie.

            FACT: The order to selectively close these parks came from the White House.

            FACT: Seventeen government shutdowns in the last 30 years and not ONE of them resulted in our national monuments being closed and barricaded.

            I don’t really expect a lot form a mindless liberal troll like you. So just keep running away from the truth.

          • Jeff Coil

            “Now go pound keys” isn’t an insult? I think you should learn what the word “hypocrisy” even means. Every single one of your replies has included in insult. I did not say “name calling”. Fact of the matter is, regardless of your left-wing spin, the closing of the parks if fully on the Democrats hands. You cannot deny that.

            Now if you will excuse me I have my own vacation to attend to, and I have wasted far too much time with trolls like you. Enjoy your afternoon, and please slow down on the Kool-Aid.

          • Grey Wolf

            Nope. It isn’t. It’s a clever way of telling you to do more research. It also isn’t profanity, so I can see why it got past you. I can deny all that you have asserted. Simply saying you can fly does not make it so. The facts belie your baseless claims.

    • Jeff Coil

      The orders to close the parks came from the WHITE HOUSE, a$$hole. You are the one “believing whatever you are told”. And research? Really? Here is some “research” you can do. Answer this question: Of the 17 government shutdowns in the last 30 years, how many resulted in national monuments being barricaded? Answer: NONE.

      The Republicans have presented bills to provide funding for EVERYTHING Obama has shut down. Harry Reid has rejected them without even allowing the Senate to vote. He wont even allow children with cancer to be treated.

      It cost more money to shut these open-air memorials down then it would just to continue allowing Americans to enjoy them, so this has nothing to do with the shutdown or a lack of money. It is about controlling and punishing the American people.

      So now WHO is holding “hostages”?

      • Grey Wolf

        So, by you resorting to profanity, I can ignore anything else you have to say. Thanks!

        • Jeff Coil

          Of course you have to ignore it, because it PROVES YOU WRONG.

There is a clean budget bill just waiting to be voted on, but the speaker of the house refuses to allow a vote. I’ve contacted my representative, please contact yours.

        • Grey Wolf

          You should avoid this:

          Hyperbole (/haɪˈpɜrbəliː/ hy-PUR-bə-lee;[1] Greek: ὑπερβολή hyperbolē, “exaggeration”) is the use of exaggeration as a rhetorical device or figure of speech. It may be used to evoke strong feelings or to create a strong impression, but is not meant to be taken literally.[2]

          Hyperboles are exaggerations to create emphasis or effect. As a literary device, hyperbole is often used in poetry, and is frequently encountered in casual speech. An example of hyperbole is: “The bag weighed a ton.”[3] Hyperbole makes the point that the bag was very heavy, though it probably does not weigh a ton.

            I’m sorry, what do traffic cones and Mount Rushmore have to do with racial anything? If one objects to having national monuments spitefully closed off, that makes one a racist? Could you explain the link between traffic cones and racism in a logical progression WITHOUT resorting to name-calling? Because calling me or anyone a name may feel good, but it doesn’t prove that *I* am anything, it only proves that you are good at calling names.

    Are you people completely insane. Both parties are a joke. This whole shut-down is a joke. I don’t trust any of these so called “representatives”. People need to realize that all governments are immoral. They are all systems of coercion and violence. Laws are not acts of moral rules and justice. They are simply suggestions to those willing to believe that government is legitimate. Americans don’t need laws to tell people what is right or wrong. Americans need liberty to choose how their lives should be lived. Government will never solve the problems that it claims exist, because if it did, there would be no need for it. Wake up folks, don’t get roped into this Right vs Left mentality, because it is all to keep you playing the game you will never win.

    “But whether the Constitution really be one thing, or another, this much
    is certain – that it has either authorized such a government as we have
    had, or has been powerless to prevent it. In either case it is unfit
    to exist.”

    If you think this is a funny way of saying “Take that Obama”, watch for an agent provocateur. If it’s just families going into the campgrounds it’s one thing, right? Then watch for someone stirring up trouble. How about an Acorn sponsored bus trip to the national parks for you and your homies, young gang members? No rules, ’cause no Rangers, right? While I agree the park closures were an unfortunate part of the shutdown – it’s part of making Obama come to a budget bargain. Don’t make it worse by acting out. Just say – this stuff could get worse, so let’s not instigate it. If a couple of rednecks can’t help acting out, they just become examples Obama can use to make his case.

    • Christine Voss

      “Acting out?” Please. I suppose that’s what George Washington and Ben Franklin were doing–‘acting out.’ Like naughty children. I don’t think so. Tossing aside cones that never should have been put there is not ‘acting out.’ And if 17 other shut downs could occur without shutting down national parks, monuments, private businesses, people’s homes, the ocean, and Catholic priests…this one certainly could have, too.

      Wall of cones?

    I congratulate this man for doing this. Obozo is destroying this country and he doesn’t care who he hurts. He’s turning this country into a communist country, with him as the dictator and being the biggest liar in the history of this country.

  • Mr.Richards

    i have this strange feeling that taking this shutdown to the extreme this administration is taking it to in an obvious attempt to hurt the GOP, could possibly backfire on them. is it possible that people are waking up?

    • Flayer

      Yes, except for those like robertcassaday who just do not want to know anything that disturbs or contradicts his dreamy thoughts about Obama. Reminds me of the crushes our friends had on bad boys that I would warn them about. But despite all the red flags and evidence mounting up they refuse to believe their lying eyes until one day after bad boy had slept with or attempted to seduce best friends, stolen all the silver, borrowed every last dime and left in the middle of the night, did reality crash.

  • nitediver

    If a small red cone can stop you – you are not a true American, you are a wimp that bows to false tyranny.

  • http://www.reticulator.com Reticulator

    If Obama is allowed to engage in anti-government rhetoric, why shouldn’t citizens toss highway cones? (Look at Obama’s message to govt employees at the DOI web site, where he trashes a branch of the U.S. government.)

  • robertcassady

    The shutdown is a congressional issue. For all of you who are spouting hate, please read the Constitution before you open your mouth to show your ignorance. This shutdown will end when members of Congress finally decides to end their hissy fit. I agree with you all, though, that there are a bunch of people in Washington not doing what we voted for them to do.

    • Worship Dancer

      CONGRESS is not ordering BARRYcades around OPEN AIR National Monuments and spending MILLIONS to keep people out of locations that are OPEN AND UNMANNED 24/7. sorry THIS IS WAHSIDENT’S DOING. so how do you feel about him closing the OCEANS? http://www.examiner.com/article/feds-close-florida-oceans-florida-bay-charter-owner-says-they-re-killing-us

      • robertcassady

        In response to your closing the oceans question, I would say that it is time for members of both parties in Congress to vote to end this shutdown. Everyone there is throwing a hissy fit.
        I would say that Obama is telling Congressional Republicans that they can not choose only the parts of the government that they want to be affected by the shutdown closed, while leaving others that legally are in the same situation open.
        The Republicans do not want the parks closed because they know that the parks (one of the United States greatest inventions in my mind) are very popular with the public. If they can get their spin doctors out there that they are fighting for the parks, they see this as a possible way to sway public opinion away from the fact that Congressional Tea Party members are fighting hard not allow a law that is already funded and upheld by the highest court in our great country.

    • Sage Parsely

      you watch to much t.v. Osama wanted this shutdown. The republicans brought 4 different proposals to the table and your precious Hussein thumbed his nose and refused negotiations. He’s an arrogant POS

      • robertcassady

        I do not watch t.v. other than Netflix movies, so apparently you are speculating incorrectly.

        • Flayer

          Just read the Congressional Record, then. Sage is correct. Facts are stubborn little annoyances.

      • robertcassady

        Every one of those proposals delayed or altered a law that was passed by Congress, signed by the President, and upheld by the Supreme Court. What the Republicans in Congress were doing could be construed as blackmail. Obama did not negotiate because he does not want the United States government to be swayed by blackmail.

        • Christine Voss

          Blackmail or trying to do the will of the people? I’m well aware that Hollywood actresses who earn millions of dollars want Obamacare. But they have not allowed people to speak. They have smeared and tried to destroy anyone who doesn’t want this monstrosity. They have tried to silence any opposition, rather than allowing these things to be discussed. They have tried to make people think that ‘everyone’ wants Obamacare, but it just isn’t true.
          I’m GLAD our representatives are listening to their constituents–which is their JOB–and preventing the implementation of an unjust and overreaching law.

      • Flayer

        Of course he did and he’s purposely targeting red states or hptrying to hurt those groups/constituents who didn’t support him, such as vets. He’s such a vengeful, insufferable nasty little man.

    • Christine Voss

      We the people have every right to voice our opinion on what our government is doing. It’s a tired refrain and trick of liberals to claim that anyone who disagrees with them is ‘spouting hate,’ and ‘ignorant.’

      • robertcassady

        What is great about our country is that both of us can speak freely about the government. We should be happy for that.
        I did not agree with actions that President Bush did, but never insulted him or called him derogatory terms. In my mind, to do so is spouting hate.
        I say ignorant because the Congress is the branch of the government that is elected to make the laws and deal with budgetary issues. They are the ones who are refusing to fund items that have all ready been made into law.
        There are many conservative ideals that I completely agree with. In this case, I do not agree with people who are speaking without a working knowledge of the Constitution of the United States, which I believe is one of the greatest documents ever written.

        • Christine Voss

          You have issued a general statement to all about ‘spouting hate.’ There are many people here who have not called anyone names, but have objected to ACTIONS. And the funny thing is, I’ve heard conservatives and Republicans, individually and as groups called every vicious, ugly, hateful name there is…yet liberals are always telling me how THEY never call anyone names, so therefore I somehow have no right to object to their party’s actions. Not only is that seriously flawed logic, but I’m wondering who it is that’s doing all the name-calling of conservatives, since every individual liberal denies doing it.

          • robertcassady

            I agree with you in that I too have seen hateful speech by Liberals as well as Conservatives. I do not condone that speech either. I think that a forum such as this should be grounds for meaningful discussion not insults, so I try to approach my comments in that light.

            I also agree with you that there are many here who are not spouting hate and applaud them for that fact. This is why I said, “For those of you who are…” In my mind, comparing Obama to Stalin and Hitler or any of a variety of other insults seen in some of the posts here represents hateful actions, and are inappropriate.

            I would agree also that some here are objecting to actions not name-calling. I am better with that. I too think that it is a travesty that the parks are closed. However, I also see that Obama is saying that Republicans cannot be selective in the implementation of the shut down.

            There are, though, many people in this forum displaying ignorance of the Constitution, and that was what prompted my post.

            As a related example, when a Tea Party candidate for president, Michele Bachmann, spoke of Concord, New Hampshire as the site of an early Revolutionary War battle, this is showing ignorance. Shutting down the government was caused by Congress not passing what it needed to pass as they are in the Legislative branch of the government. Obama is in the Executive branch. Spin it how you will, but this shut down was brought about as a result of a failure of the Legislative branch of the government to do its job.

          • Flayer

            Sorry robertcassaday,
            Congress passed a bill funding EVERYTHING government needed to operate, even the wasteful garbage…EXCEPT the funding for the continued implementation of Obamacare. Reid and Obama said no – all or nothing. This is not on Congress or the GOP. Check the Congressional record if you don’t believe me.

            There is more than enough money coming in to fund everything. Congress just said no more. In other words, if you’ve maxed out on your cards but have enough income to support your family’s needs plus pay the minimum due on your cards, you don’t have a snit fit and demand higher limits on your cards in order put in a new pool or upgrade your kitchen. This is what the debt limit argument is. Obama and Reid want to borrow more to increase spending to expand or create more government.

          • Christine Voss

            Excellent explanation. And this goes to one of the big frustrations with Obamacare: WHERE IS THE MONEY COMING FROM??? There are so many people out there who think they’re getting a free gift. NO NO NO!!!! Doctors have to be paid. Nurses have to be paid. The mortgage and upkeep on facilities have to be paid. Medical equipment and supplies need to be PAID FOR?
            Do they think there’s a magic medical fairy out there who’s going to make it all just appear?
            No, the money is being taken out of OUR wallets in higher taxes, and if you couldn’t afford insurance to begin with, how in the world are you going to afford MORE TAXES big enough to cover that insurance PLUS the cost of someone to administer it?

    Snopes was posting yesterday that these overlooks, etc being blocked off were ‘myths’. Another ‘fact checking’ group bought off by the liberals…

    • Christine Voss

      Snopes has totally discredited itself. I’ve noticed that the liberals’ answer to everything is, “That source isn’t valid.” Don’t bother discussing the issues. Just say everything is photoshopped, and anyone who claims to have been there is lying. Welcome to 1984.

    • Public_Citizen

      The owners and operators of Snopes have been thoroughly vetted as [nearly rabid] leftist/progressive/democrats.
      They have been caught in so many propaganda “spins” and downright falsifications that the site is pretty much discredited.
      If someone sites Snopes as a source ask them what other sources they have used to verify that Snopes isn’t pulling another one of their political spin jobs.
      Typical progressive tactics, establish something as a credible source and then use it as a propaganda vehicle until the propagandizing is discovered. Then lie about the propagandizing as long as possible until it is impossible to keep the cover-up going then close up shop and move on to the next vehicle to lie to the public.

  • cobalt100

    Of course, the reason that the National Parks are closed is because there is no one there to “baby-sit” and watch over hoards of visitors, then the National Parks will be overwhelmed with thoughtless idiots. HA! That is not the case. The true reason is that there is no one there to collect the entrance fees. They won’t let anyone in for free. It’s a sham business you know, just one of many in our corrupt government.

Repeal it. If you don’t have the votes to repeal it it’s because we decided we didn’t want it repealed by electing the law makers that we did. You don’t try and backdoor it, which is exactly what is going on by linking a defunding provision to th CR.

    so did they forget that they now have a picture to prove him
    trespassing on Federal property when closed to the public and
    destruction of federal property. Geesh they are stupid. Doesn’t matter if you agree with the shutdown those are laws that are there for the protection of the natural and cultural resources that are in place all the time. Some of these places are not there for a persons playground but to preserve the wilderness and natural conditions. Are these the same people that disrespect parks laws all the time? This is like a two year old temper tantrum that breaks a toy because someone is trying to take it away. So now when the park employees do go back to work are they going to come back to destroyed, trashed, and defaced monuments and parks because no one was there to protect them so you just did what you want. Probably so because if these people actually cared about the parks and the resources you would respect them and the decisions to protect them.

    • oldenough2remember

      And when laws are bad, people use civil disobedience to work at changing them. Go ahead and sit home in your safe world and let the dictators of this world pass laws that you won’t challenge and pretty soon you’ll be a slave to those dictators. As for temper tantrums, you have perfectly described Obama and the Democrats who refuse to negotiate when the House has sent 8 different funding bills that are sitting on Harry Reid’s desk with no possibility of discussion while this administration stomps its feet and barricades open air monuments, removes citizens from homes they own on federal land, closes down private Inns on federal roads, and behaves like a kindergarten brat who can’t get everyone to play the game he wants to play. You are part of the problem, and need to educate yourself so that you can be part of the solution.

    • Christine Voss

      Why wasn’t this vaunted ‘protection of our parks’ needed in any of the other 17 shutdowns over the past years and presidents? And I seriously doubt it’s these families who are defacing parks.
      REMINDER: it’s costing as much or more to shut down all these open air monuments as to just carry on.

    • fanofamerica

      So what you’re saying is instead of paying staff to block off the people’s parks, it would have made more sense for the dictator to use those same funds to pay staff to monitor the parks? I agree.

  • Los_Pepes

    The irony of this fight to stop Obamacare is that the National Park Service routinely violates federal law to prevent its employees from getting health benefits. They do this by staffing many parks with “seasonal” workers on a year round basis.

    They hire someone for six months then at the end of that time another person will come in and take it for six months. Or as is becoming more common people are put into 1-2 year appointments that are supposed to only be used to fill in for situations like when a permanent employee is on military deployment, or extended sick leave; or a limited term project . Instead this is a tactic to avoid paying benefits to Rangers. And it is used for people who’s “special project” is everyday on going operations.

    Because of their love for and dedication to the resources of our national parks many rangers put up with this abuse and the National Park Service know they will just sit there and take it for that reason.

    This rampant violation of federal employment regulations is the same kind of practice that causes people to castigate major retail chains like Walmart. So next time you visit a federal park and you feel uplifted and well served by a friendly helpful ranger know that there is a good chance that this is what they are suffering.

      No, lex, the Republicans voted to COMPLETELY fund the government except for Obamacare. It’s basic high school goverment class. The House has the power to decide how money is to be spent. They chose to fund EVERYTHING in the government EXCEPT Obamacare. The Senate then chose to ignore all of that funding due to the Obamacare exclusion. Tell me now who really shut down the government? They refused to accept government funding because it didn’t include the biggest scam and swindle in the history of this country – that calls into their offices show is clearly not wanted by the majority of the working population – so the Democrats OWN this shutdown!

    It is NOT POTUS’ FAULT. It is a very few members of Congress that are behaving like stubborn children. Obamacare went into effect already, please do your research before you start spewing idiocies. That being said, way to go to my fellow Americans for viewing our national parks, cones be damned!

    • rightside100

      Hey moron in EVERY other government shut down the memorials remained open, the parks for the most part remained open. It is Odumbo who closed them and used more manpower to close them than keep them open. He ordered them to make it as inconvenient as possible and the WH said NO exceptions to the WW II honor flight vets.

    • jkimbr

      He could at least have a little dignity. Even that ole’ sly fox Bill Clinton didn’t stoop this low.

    • Rick

      There is plenty of blame to go around with the shutdown and so much else that is wrong in DC. However the use of extra man hours to close things that require no expenditure to keep open is absolutely the fault of the administrative branch which is run by the POTUS, who seems to be having a temper tantrum.

      • Grey Wolf

        Bullshit. The blame lies squarely with the GOP. It is pathetic for you to state otherwise.

          Yeah Obama isn’t in the chaIn of command all these decisions are like the wind blowing, who knows where they come from, all these examples of feds being told to mAke it hurt in a visible way. Your a fool or a liar.

            You must not have been paying attention in Social Studies or you would know how the government works. You are just an ignorant partisan.

          • Grey Wolf

            Hardly. I actually read more than one news outlet and make INFORMED decisions. Parties mean nothing to me. I didn’t mindlessly bash Bush, and I won’t mindlessly bash Obama either.

          • Grey Wolf

            Not at all. I just read with understanding and try to be as unbiased as possible. D*ckhead.

          • mishong

            I’ve read your comments – you’re just a pinnacle of bipartisan evenhandedness

  • rightside100

    Worse yet Obama threw seniors out of their homes on federal land. That never happened in any other shut down. ordered from the WH.

    The GOP is not “on your side”. They are on their side, and this is their fault.

    The look on this guy’s face while he’s throwing that cone… It looks like he’s never done anything “bad” in his life, and he’s absolutely REVELING in this moment.

  • nash gomez

    When the shutdown ends the govt can make some money back by selling the shutdown cones as souvenirs. Get your shutdown cones here!

  • The Weatherman

    Really? A page worth of name calling is all I can take. At what point does a law, passed by the house and the senate and upheld by the supreme court, become a presidential hissy fit? Sorry he got re-elected by a majority of the country after the law was passed. Put your big pants on and stop the government shutdown, Congress.
