Nail on the head.

Thanks to President Stompy Foot, elderly residents have been forced out of their private homes on Lake Mead because they happen to be located on federal land.

It’s shutdown theater gone wild.

As the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports, some 60 families were given notice:

Bob Hitchcock is in his “least favorite place” these days — inside his landlocked Las Vegas home instead of at his cabin on the North Shore of Lake Mead, tooling around with old engines in his garage.

He’s one of an estimated 60 families with vacation homes along the lake who were given notice by the National Park Service earlier this week to gather their stuff and leave, according to Christie Vanover, a spokeswoman for the Lake Mead Recreational Area.

The homes — from Stewart’s Point on the north to Katherine’s Landing and Temple Bar on the south — sit on federal land.

As a result, the federal government shutdown left Hitchcock just 24 hours to evacuate his two-bedroom, two bath cabin in Stewart’s Point, about 70 miles northeast of Las Vegas.

…“I wouldn’t call it a government shutdown,” said Hitchcock, 71, a retired zone manager for 7-Eleven. “I’d call it a government meltdown. If my kids ever acted like these politicians are acting — it’s probably not politically correct to say this anymore — but I’d beat the crap out of them, then send them to their rooms.”

KNTV has the story of another elderly couple affected by Obama’s shutdown evacuation notices.

The government shutdown is being felt close to home for some locals. They say they’re being forced out of private homes on Lake Mead because they sit on federal land.

Joyce Spencer is 77-years-old and her husband Ralph is 80. They’ve been spending most of their time in the family ice cream store since going home isn’t an option.

The Spencers never expected to be forced out of their Lake Mead home, which they’ve owned since the 70s, but on Thursday, a park ranger said they had 24 hours to get out.

“I had to go to town today and buy Ralph undershirts and jeans because I forgot his pants,” Joyce Spencer told Action News.

The Stewart’s Point home sits on federal land, so even though the Spencers own their cabin outright, they’re not allowed in until the government reopens.

Attention, GOP.

Reminder:

Turnabout is fair play.

Remember: You can’t fix craven fecklessness, but you can vote it out.

  • o0Nighthawk0o

    I can almost understand that this happens because the homes/businesses are located on federal land. I don’t agree with it and it shows just how petty the POTUS can be. But my question is that, I assume that this land is leased, do the people there that own these homes/businesses still have to pay the lease?

      I don’t understand it at all from a fiscal standpoint. Do these homeowners get routine service from federal employees? Is their grass cut by the Park Service?

      This is just another case of the President allocating funds to show that he doesn’t have any money. It cost more to contact these people than it would have to just put the Park Service folks on furlough.

            Putin told Pravda that we are more Communist than they are. He said Communism is a failed concept and how could we not see that it almost destroyed their country. He said Russia is now turning to Capitalism, because they saw we became rich and powerful under it. Putin also said, Russia is turning to God, while we are becoming Godless. He goes to Christian church every Sunday. He is enticing companies to move there by giving them huge tax breaks and cutting all the red tape. Businesses are flocking to Russia from all over the world. Their economy is booming

      • OneThinDime

        The underlying question is why are their homes on federal land?

        • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil ✓Mate

          Reading a bit more on this, it seems that land was made available around Lake Mead in the early days to help that area become a tourist destination. It figures the government would think that they’d have to do something to make an area a desirable destination.

          • OneThinDime

            Thanks for the info. It seems the gov’t only has a property interest not actual ownership and there would be an enforceable contract for the homeowners. Where is the ACLU? Oh wait, they only help Obama. Where is the ACLJ?

        • ThomasCollins1

          The underlying question should be why does the federal government control 30 of the land west of the Mississippi? They are only allowed to own property for forts, arsenals, and other useful buildings.

          • TimT2011

            I may be wrong about this, but it’s my understanding that the federal government bought a lot of land out west during and after the dust bowl era to make sure the land wasn’t over-farmed. The goal (be it wrong or right) was to prevent those weather conditions from happening again.

          • dana

            part of the deal to become a state was to give the fed rights to land, lots of it, while we may get PILT I think almost any of us would rather have the land in state/private control

          • ThomasCollins1

            “..to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings…”

            Art I sec.8 cl 17

            “…the federal government bought a lot of land out west during and after the dust bowl era to make sure the land wasn’t over-farmed. The goal (be it wrong or right) was to prevent those weather conditions from happening again”.

            How many times have you heard a politician say “we’ve passed this law to make sure that ___ never happens again”? Passing laws does not ensure that something won’t happen again, it just provides some kind of legal remedy when (not if) it does. This is especially true for something inanimate, like weather, which, believe me, doesn’t give a hoot what the law is.

          • TimT2011

            ThomasCollins1, I personally don’t believe in all the climate change stuff, but I suppose I can see that you might need grass and trees to stop dust from being picked up and blown across wide distances.

            I really don’t know though, wasn’t saying I agreed with what the government did back then, but that was my understanding of why they bought so much.

          • DixieAngel_76

            Just a note; I once read that there’s an old saying which goes something like “if you were to put the federal government in charge of the Sahara desert, within 5 years they would have a shortage of sand.”

      • Chrissy the Hyphenated

        The ONLY notice necessary was to let residents know what federally funded services were being shut down. If folks want to stay under those conditions, it’s their business. Or it should be.

      • JaxCracker

        General maintenance and park police surveillance is probably the main excuse that Obama will use. In fairness, you know that thugs love to find unprotected assets to attack and plunder. I suspect the lightly-manned police surveillance of the homes now has orders to shoot first and ask questions later (much like looters would be treated in homes evacuated after hurricanes)

    • JMW

      I just tweeted the newspaper in NV to ask them if the government shutdown in the 90s when it was Clinton vs. Gingrich caused these people to be kicked out of their homes….. my guess is no. Now who is really responsible here? President Historic First is doing many historic things around the nation right now…. none of them good.

      • ahunteranderson

        Or you could just read the article. It clearly states they did not have to leave during the Clinton shutdown.

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

      Obama has shown how ruthless and unconcerned about people he is, after all, to him the individual does not matter unless they can be used for his own political gain.

      He will use this to say – the Republicans caused this due to them not being willing to surrender unconditionally and just give me all that I desire.

      I hope people see the truth of Obama the madman.

          Please explain why spending money to make people leave homes is justified. While you are at it explain why using government workers and resources to block open air memorials that have never been manned is rational, fair and good stewardship of our resources. Explain why Camp David, the White House and Biden’s residence have not been shut down, at the very least the first family could be given around 1500 sq feet and the rest of the residence roped off, without staff. Jill Biden and Joe could be put up in the Lincoln bedroom and Jill and Michelle could cook and clean like the rest of America does.

          Christopher, I’m sure an empty nut sack collects a lot of lint.

        • Rich

          Kidder is right. You guys need to read a book, or at least a couple articles from the international media. Even Fox news is reporting that the shutdown has been planned by the gop for the last year and a half. What happens during a shutdown is that THINGS SHUTS DOWN. That’s why they call it that. Everything that is not akin to a federal life support system closes up shop. House republicans KNEW THAT. They are counting on your gullibility to be able to purposefully shut down the government, then tell you all about the atrocious things that are happening as a result to enrage you, in hopes that you’ll accept their assertion that it’s the fault of the president. Which you gladly will, apparently, because you are THAT GULLIBLE, and more. Also, you guys’ derogatory puns are just magnificently horrific. I would work on those some more before you put them in a public space. Yikes!!!

        • Mickey Roberts

          These “people kicked out of their homes” were pretty well to do people in their VACATION homes. One of the stipulations of being allowed to build a VACATION home on Lake Mead is that it MUST NOT be your primary residence. You do not in any way own the land, it MUST be a vacation home and not your primary home. It is SUBJECT to the rules of the federal government. Those are facts, like them or not. When you shut off the ignition in your car, you have no radio, lights, heat, power steering, power brakes. The GOPigs should have thought about veterans, the “poor people vacationing on Lake Mead”, seniors, federal employees, our military, FBI, CIA, everyone, They were too STUPID to understand, just as you people are. The ACA is a law and the shut down has absolutely zero effect on it. Do you even know the difference between a bill and a law? Chris I willbet dollars to donuts not one of these republitards does. Rafael “Ted” Cruz, the Canadian born Cuban knew this when he read Green Eggs and Ham, which by the way, is a story about a guy who does not like GE&H until he tries it. Then he realizes he likes it. Rafael is not even smart enough to read the whole book, and he is the guy that led this freaking moronic, stupid, assinine move to shut down something that should NEVER be shut down. Why? Because veterans dont get taken care of, surrvivor benefits for fallen soldiers families dont get paid. people get kicked out of their vacation homes, all kinds of bad shit happens.

      “In later years, the National Park Service took the land over. That’s who Hitchcock has been writing his yearly rent check to since 1987, when he retired and bought the cabin from the previous owner.

      At first the rent was only $500 a year; it’s since grown to $2,400 a year.

      He expected the increase, it was part of the deal 25 years ago. A deal that requires he take apart his cabin and haul it away when he ends his lease.”

      http://www.reviewjournal.com/news/government/shutdown-forces-owners-leave-lake-mead-homes

      I’m sure they will have to continue to pay their lease.

      The article also states: “But he can’t quite grasp this latest calamity. After all, he wasn’t told to vacate during the Clinton Administration in 1995, when the government was closed down for more than three weeks.”

      Obama doesn’t have to do this. #WorstPresidentEver!

    • Brad Bettin

      Ordinarily, a tenant has a “right of quiet enjoyment” – which means that, as long as the tenant is honoring the lease, the landlord can’t do anything to interfere with the tenant’s use of the property.

      “Obviously” the federal leases must not read like that.

      I do wonder, though, when Obama & Biden will be told they have to leave their homes located on federal property because “the government is closed.”

      • Goodyeargirl

        I don’t think it matters about leases to the Feds. See the information about Mount Vernon, privately funded which they tried to shut down. The owners, Ladies of Mount Vernon, pushed back and they are open so Obama had the parking lot shut down as it is owned JOINTLY by the Feds and the Ladies……. He should only be allowed to shut down HALF of it…….. just sayin’

      You can almost understand this? What the hell? It makes no sense, they own their homes, that it’s on federal land doesn’t matter. The federal government doesn’t spend any money there, you can’t shut down something that’s not paid for by the government. That’s ridiculous!

    • Charles Batchelor

      Yes but the park on which it sits is being closed, there are laws in some states that make it a crime for your landlord to interfere with your use of leased property but sadly it does apply to the federal government. And yes, they still have to pay or loose the lease, a lot of these homes are own by private indivuiduals because it was once private land that is now part of the parks until those individuals move or die.

      All of the illegals who are living in government housing on our tax dime should be booted out of their homes as well. That’d probably save a couple of hundred million dollars right there.

      • Lee Rubba

        I believe about the illegals thing but I live in subsidized HUD housing and I have nowhere else to go. I have a child still in school and I am disabled. I am sight impaired due to breast cancer. My 2nd round of chemo took my sight. Now what should I tell my daughter?? We have to leave our home?? I pay more money than most where I live and yes, some should not even be here. So do u have any advice for me now?? smh in disgust in NJ. #verysadndisappointed

        • Diane

          Lee Rubba, he isn’t talking about you. Our country needs to be able to take care of our own who, like you, need it, instead of spending most on people who don’t even care enough about the country to come here legally.

          • Lee Rubba

            Thank you Diane but I know it doesn’t effect just me. But I was explaining my point on this. I NEVER took advantage of the system. In fact, I only collected Welfare for 4 months total since my daughter was born and that was at different times in her life, not all at once. I just think it is sinful what they are doing on Capital Hill with our lives and livelihoods. I am not the kind of person who would NOT work if I was able too. I had a good work ethic when I was able to and now I am scared to death. Not a good place to be when you are going blind already.

        • Deborah Hallsted

          I’m so sorry you’re in that situation

          • Lee Rubba

            And it’s not my fault that I had to resort to this. I lost my house after I lost my job in 2009. And in 2010 I found out that I had a 3cm lump in my right breast. So this is all we have and what do I tell my daughter?? We have to go to a shelter?? And what about our kitties?? To the pound?? I am so upset about all of this bs I can’t stand it anymore. I sit here and use my magnifying glass to read these and it just upsets me more. For someone like me to be at the bottom of the barrel and have nowhere else to go…..what do I do?? Thank u for caring tho. Makes me feel good that someone out there that I don’t know would care so much. May God bless u. This is not what I had planned for my life. Nor my daughter’s.

          • Deborah Hallsted

            I understand, I have two terminal daughters I support, alone. That’s why I couldn’t let your comment pass. I think what people were saying, though, is not that anything will happen to people in your living circumstance, but that it is an example of people living under the govt’s thumb, and if you’re going to evict certain people, and justify it, what about the millions of HUD housing? Just as people said O lives on govt. subsidized housing/land-and he won’t get evicted, either. They were illustrating many live on govt. related housing situations, such as Native Americans. ! I don’t believe O would do anything about low income housing as well, as he thinks that’s his voting base. And as for you, may God bless you, and help you. It’s no fault of your own, of course, and ostensibly you are one of the deserving that the programs were designed originally for.

          • Lee Rubba

            Thank u Deborah for saying that. But with people in my situation, this is pretty scary to us. I shouldn’t have to live in fear of the government for things that are necessary to live. And just so u know, I never voted for this POS either. I am smarter than that!! lol U have a very blessed day. Take care and keep up the fight for us all!!! I know I will do whatever I can on my end. Thank God, I remember how to type or it would b really hard for me to get my point across!!

    • Goodyeargirl

      would that mean we’d have to lock everyone in military housing out, and in the ghetto housing the government claims to support… (an obvious lie as it’s absolutely pitiful at upkeep and maintainance)? How about subsidized Section 8 housing? No, he wouldn’t sacrifice those votes……….

    • tammy

      There is nothing fair with Obama, especially if you are white or Christian. He is also refusing to allow Catholic chaplains to perform any religious services on any bases. They can be arrested. They can not even volunteer their services. No prayers, no counseling, no communion, no services. That is sick. I didn’t see anywhere were Muslims are not allowed.

    • marge angel

  • Leah Keever

    Why are there private homes on federal land?

    • IBXNJ

      There are THOUSANDS of homes like this all over the country….the owners own the buildings and LEASE the land from the Feds

    • Bonhoeffer

      Why does the federal government even own that land?! It isn’t a post office, military base, arsenal, or administrative facility. Therefore, there is nothing in the Constitution which empowers theffederal government to buy, seize, or otherwise own that land. It belongs to the state whose borders it is within and to the people.

      • GaryTheBrave

        You can blame Teddy Roosevelt and the Congress of the period. Photographers of the era took photos of scenic locales like Yosemite and showed them to Congress and the President. Thinking that ONLY the federal government had the resources to husband these locations (sound familiar?) they passed laws that allowed the federal government to take these lands for the public welfare.

        The canyon that forms Lake Mead was a very beautiful area. But since the government took it to “take care of it” they got a sense of ownership and decided they could fill the government coffers by filling the canyon with water and selling the water and the electricity from the dam.

        A couple of years ago, during a drought, the water level got so low that the former canyon became visible. Many pro and amateur photographers took to the water to get pictures of the formerly pristine gorge because they weren’t certain if they would have another chance in their lifetime. Something similar occurred this week too.

    I’m afraid an uprising is what this dictator wants. He’s testing to see how well the police and troopers listen to his orders. He’s already equipped every major city’s police department with tanks and militia-level weaponry. He’s dividing this country and egging us on to create upheaval. He will then declare martial law and we’ll never see another election again.

    I want to believe the truth will reach the low information voters, but even the report above by the Review-Journal leaves the individual reader to decide who is responsible for this, and many already believe it’s the republicans. It omits the fact that these types of closures have NEVER happened in prior shutdowns under either a democrat or republican president. Where is that information???

    Our biggest enemy is the media. If we don’t figure out a way to effectively counter their propaganda, we are going to lose every battle and eventually the war.

    • alanstorm

      To be fair, the militarization of the police started before his term. On the other hand, he’s done nothing to slow it down, either.

    Hey, it’s Sunday. Can we all say a prayer Steve Lonegan beats the crap out of Cory Booker in the special senate election in NJ? The media have all but crowned Booker NJ’s next senator, but polls say it’s a lot closer than we think. This would be a HUGE referendum on Obama and ObamaCare — a “blue” state electing a tea-party backed republican. And it would be an election even the lamestream media cannot ignore.

    We have a chance to have a voice now — we don’t have to wait until 2014. Now more than ever we need to slap the lamestream media in the face with some reality, and winning this special election would be one helluva way to do it.

    P.S. I was appalled that Romney didn’t even bother to run ads in NJ and just succumbed to this idea that we are a blue state. I live in a very red district. Other than the cities of Newark, Trenton, Camden and Paterson, this state has a lot of independent voters who can go either way, and many of them are feeling a lot of buyer’s remorse right now. We have a chance. SAY A PRAYER!

This is just another example of DC using a form of ’eminent domain’ to boot people off of their land. Land they’ve never owned nor have any right to. This shows that DC is polluted with socialism (anti-private-land-rights other than their own) and a complete arrogant disregard for its citizens.

    It’s like our government is run by (even more) high-strung narcissistic brats who do not realize that their behavior during this shutdown is making citizens and state-level politicians think that perhaps the federal government doesn’t deserve as much funding going into the blackhole that is DC.

    When Reagan was young and healthy, he was a Democrat; as his dementia kicked in and he slowly turned into a rotting vegetable, he grew more and more conservative… goes to show it takes an IQ of 70 and under to be a republican: a mouth-breathing, knuckle-dragging, drooling, superstitious animal LOL

    • ZH38

      Nothing like a brain-dead, Obama-worshipping zombie POS to lecture Republicans! So far we have Obama and his communist party …

      Shutting down the WWII monument

      Blocking people from viewing Mt. Rushmore

      Kicking elderly folks out of their own homes

      Shutting down parking lots near historic monuments

      And the dems think this is going to hurt the GOP. LOL!

      • ObamaFail

        Obama also shut down the Grand Canyon. The Dems also want to shut down access to the oceans, because apparently they think the Messiah owns the oceans. B-Buddha is in for a rude awakening, when the Dems “Final Solution” for the country they despise is realized, and suddenly his welfare and food stamps stop rolling in.

      • Christine Voss

        Don’t forget shutting down the ocean.
        Pisgah Inn, a private business.
        Forbidding Catholic priests to say mass even voluntarily for our troops.
        Closing Mount Vernon, also privately owned.

    • ObamaFail

      The Dems ran Detroit into the ground. IF that’s not proof enough that if the Dems ran the country with no opposition they would bankrupt the US, which is what Obama is constantly trying to do, then it proves what a Neanderthal brained loser you truly are. Why don’t you go abort a baby and masturbate to Sandra Fluke. No one here wants to hear you spew phony Democrat talking points.

    • tops116 ✓Quipper

      “as his dementia kicked in and he slowly turned into a rotting vegetable”

      So, dementia is the reason Obama’s an idiot?

      “goes to show it takes an IQ of 70”

      To produce a transcript so bad that it will never be released.

      “a mouth-breathing, knuckle-dragging, drooling, superstitious animal”

      That’s a pretty nasty insult of Obama right there.

    Obama & Biden needs to be put out of their homes. They are federal land. I wish that every veteran from every war and every citizen that is mad about their stupid tactics would invade Washington. It looks like if it will ever end the American people are going to have to take the country back. In my 61 years I have never witnessed such a stupid, idiotic, money hungry, power hungry, anti American, Muslim, childish, foreign affairs ignorant, arrogant, selfish, kills babies, trying to kill off the seniors, wants to be God and dictator president that sits in Washington today. He wants to dictate what we eat, wear, play, breathe, tax, drive, home, and everything else. Hell (which he doesn’t believe in) is probably preparing a special place for him and his cronies.

  • http://www.changethelausd.com/ Carl Petersen

    Why is it so hard for Republicans to understand that a shutdown means that everything that is not essential gets closed? These people all knew when they purchased their homes that the land was not owned by them.

    • Sakemoto

      GFY.

    • stuckinIL4now

      It’s also not essential that these places get “closed” and it’s just Obumuh being a jackass and embarrassing the Office of the President, tryin’ to gin up anger from the ignoramuses who zombie-voted for him AND it’s costing money, he’s actually calling gubmint workers back to work to close them–so isn’t that a violation of the shutdown?

      • Deborah Hallsted

        Mount Vernon, for instance is privately owned. There is no essential money saved, nothing to be shutdown -federally. Yet they closed the parking lot.

    • ceyanne

      Really? Do you think that there is something in the lease that specifically addresses the issue of what happens in the event of a gov’t shutdown? I honestly have no idea. But then if that is the case, this isn’t the first gov’ shutdown in the last 25 years. Why wouldn’t they have been kicked out during all the other shutdowns if that is stipulated in their lease? Why is this time different? I’ll tell you what is different, we have a big petty baby in office right now.

    • ObamaFail

      Is National Chess Week essential? Because Harry Reid made sure funding was okayed for that. And the Dems are the ones keeping the government shut, because they refuse to negotiate with Republicans, because they’re too busy paling around with IRan and Al-Qaeda.

We are the serfs and Obama is the master, which is just what he wants. He has carried that “slave chip” on his shoulder for a long time and now he can be the master. Feels good to be master doesn’t it Barry. Michelle and Barry are the plantation owners now and America from coast to coast is their plantation. They can tell you where you can go and can’t go, where you can live and not live. It is nice being a tyrant isn’t it Barry.

As far as I’m concerned, this could be his permanent residence.

What is wrong with you people?? When someone in congress FINALLY stands up for the people you party line people are so pigheaded that you would rather have a train wreck (a top democrat’s word about this bill) instead of a compromise!!!

Had the senate passed those bills which funded various aspects of the government, we wouldn’t be having this discussion.

    I WISH that those who only watch MSM would at least watch FOX occasionally! FOX is far from perfect but they DO try and present ‘far & balanced’ news coverage. If they’d watch ‘Bret Baier’ etc. they’d hear what MSM isn’t reporting. Sadly since they for the most part exclusively watch MSM they don’t realize they’re getting a one-sided HIGHLY slanted view of the news. It’s so sad to me because they’re railing at and blaming the people who for the MOST part are trying to do the right thing and HELP the country! But how do you get that across to them? I mean, I watch broadcast news every night (local) and hear their liberal/biased MSM slant to the news. But I balance it by watching FOX and get to hear BOTH SIDES of a story! I’ll never understand why Democrat voters don’t do the same. I have to assume they just don’t WANT to know the truth (maybe they don’t want to give up their fantasies about how evil the ‘other side’ is?).

      If you actually believe that the vote was legal last year you are truly deluded. You explain to me how 100% of votes in ANY state has EVER gone to one candidate. It HASN’T and it NEVER WILL. But they did to Obama. Fraud was reported all over the place and our over-seas military couldn’t even get their ballots in to BE counted! And to add insult to injury a FOREIGN company tabulated votes OUTSIDE our own country! And you want to sit there and tell ME that YOU actually BELIEVE Obama was actually LEGALLY voted in? If you do, I know about a bridge in Brooklyn that’s for sale cheap . . .

      I’m a member of the Tea Party, a 65 yrs old mother and grandmother, a Christian that loves God and her community and loves her country. I attend church regularly, am on a prayer chain, make crafts with friends and we use the proceeds to help children in need in our local community, I love to watch birds at my feeders, like to garden, sit and watch TV in the evening and ‘talk’ to my buds online through email and on Facebook. I could go on and on. I’m likely to be very much like your OWN wife or mother (or grandmother!). I’m NOT crazy, a THUG or any other derogatory name you want to call me. People like me are true blue American’s who LOVE THE UNITED STATES. We hate seeing what has happened to our country, the way our freedom(s) have been whittled away more with EACH election! We want to buy what we want when we want to buy it. We DON’T want the government to tell us WHAT to buy or WHEN to buy it. We don’t want the government to tell us what to EAT or how to cook what we eat or WHEN to eat. We don’t want the government telling people what type of private business they can build or WHO they must hire or WHO they must serve. We feel that because millions of past service men and women gave their lives so that we can BE FREE and REMAIN a nation of FREE PEOPLE that we need to stand up and say ‘NO’ when any administration try’s to STEAL those freedoms so many have died to preserve. I could include more about myself but suffice it to say that we Tea Party Thugs as you call us are simply Americans that LOVE OUR NATION and her people and want us to ALL enjoy the freedom(s) our forefathers and millions since have been willing to give their lives to retain.

      You should thank your STARS that there ARE people like us willing to fight in any way that we can to try and keep dictator wannabe’s like Obama from imposing every freedom destroying mandate he can think of as he attempts a completely Communistic take over of our once great nation. If he DOES succeed to do what he and his comrades WANT to do, you’ll be crying in your beer wishing you’d have paid more attention to what is REALLY happening to American…. right under your nose!

He is an EMPLOYEE of the PEOPLE of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, and should be FIRED then ARRESTED! If you are a DEMOCRAT and still support this son of a bitch, I HOPE YOUR PARENTS ARE ON LIFE SUPPORT WHEN HE PULLS THE PLUGS so you can watch him do to THEM what he is doing to the REST of the COUNTRY!

  • sallyshep

    why are they doing all these petty things when only 17% of the govt. is actually shut down. Read Byron York’s article in the Washington Examiner. ”
    “Where’s sense of crisis in a 17% government shutdown?” Eye opening.

    • Joanne13

      It’s ALL politics…. the politics of PERCEPTION. The goal is to make the ‘other’ party look bad, hoping to stem the tide of anger (at Obama) that’s swelling up all over the country. It’s politics PURE & SIMPLE.

  • april1934

    This president is not endearing himself to the people.

  • Merrilee Lockwood Thomas

    Here’s a plan….Since the White House is Federal property why not shut the White House down and let all of the staff go home. Obama can go stay in a hotel. There’s one close by….and pay for it himself.

  • King Barachmed Hussein 0ballah

    Heed this, my subjects! You need not worship me, but you will obey me!

  • april1934

    The United States also leases land from other countries, can those countries make U.S.A. get out before their lease is up? These people should see a lawyer.

  • shooter1001

    This is why Americans should be armed! Obama will take one step too many and somebody with not much to lose will start shooting. Then all the pent up anger at government will spring back at our hated rulers and the blood will flow.

    • Joanne13

      That’s pretty much what I think they’re counting on… then Marshall Law & what follows. People need to keep a cool head…

  • jenndee

    Get these vets and people out there telling their stories! Especially if they aren’t for this pain in the ass president! Let’s beat the administration at its own game!

  • Harold Schaefer

    Okay typical republican response, when you don’t have a valid response resort to name calling. Is it any wonder why nothing gets done in this country?

    • Joanne13

      SERIOUSLY? YOU…. the person who STARTED name calling? NOW you want civility? You’ve got nerve, I’ll give you that.

      • Randy Hansen

        He learned to name call from Obama. He can’t give a speech without attacking someone.

  • Seniorsquadldr

    This is a test by the brown stain to see how much WE will take. No push back, a greater outrage next time.

  • Sue

    If the white house is on federal lands and the federal government is closed then why isn’t the white house and vps house closed and tenants kicked out. they are on federal lands too aren’t they. this is ridiculous

  • Harold Schaefer

    Sounds like someone has an anger issue. Could it be that the people you think are there to represent you really aren’t ? I was not talking about the members of the tea party, I am talking about the people in congress. If you think they have the same beliefs you do, then you are sadly mistaken. They said what you wanted to hear to get your votes and have not done one thing to back up what they promissed.

  • GWPA

    It is only seems fair that we lock the Obama’s out of the White House until the shutdown is over. We need the masses protesting in front of the Main Stream Media showing as much outrage as possible for the President’s scorched earth policy against the citizens of this country as he shows towards those that dare disagree with his policies.

  • Harold Schaefer

    I did not slander anyone here!! What I did was refer to the elected officials. Some people are very sensative!

    • Joanne13

      REALLY Harold? You must think our memories are VERY short! A mere 10 hrs ago you wrote: I am not saying it is right, but lets keep the blame where it belongs!! The tea party thugs refuse to face reality and insist that unless they get their way nobody can play. I thought they were adults up there. The people spoke and elected him for another 4 years.

      Now if that’s NOT ‘name calling’ what would you CALL it??

  • pedrobud

    These people in Washington are evil for these little games. It is all about them and to hell with the people outside the beltway

    Let’s kick them out of our house at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

  • Jack Reacher

    Why do these people leave???I would stay in my house and be armed with everything I get my hands on. I would put signs up saying that anyone on my property is trespassing and a enemy of both myself and the constitution. I would not allow any park ranger to make me leave my home.
    Americans today are just pathetic sheep!!! Stand up for your rights! Stop bowing to the badges……and defend your rights and family. If people in these situations started doing that you would see many park rangers refusing to carry out these goon tactics.

  • Toni Welnhofer

    The potus is poking the people!! And their gonna get angrier!!

  • Breanda Mc Cabe

    throw Obama out of the white house, it sits on Federal land, …..best comment on here

  • Nan231

    “If my kids ever acted like these politicians are acting”— wrong! It’s the President who is acting like this, he could very easily realign funds to cover these costs and make cuts elsewhere. Instead he choses to make a point to the American people, “I’m in charge here and you mess with me and this is what you get.” Imagine health care under his tutelage.

  • chazaroota

    The Gov of this state should mobilize the national guard, take those citizens back to their homes and DARE Oscumma to try and take them out!!!

  • Tanker74

    The spite with which Obama and his D-baggers are handling this 13 percent government slowdown is backfiring on them.

  • Walter Of Florida

    Good for you people. Obama won Nevada by something like 7 or 8 percent over Romney. Bless your hearts. You’re getting what you voted for. A petty child in the Whitehouse. LMAO Ya’ll deserve all the hope and change he is giving you.

    • mommeme

      And Acorn helped Harry and Barry big time in Nevada. Bless their collective hearts! lol

  • Truckie 117

    When will people stand up band together and say No we are not leaving!

  • atunionbob

    The POTUS had nothing to do with this, this whole mess is caused by a blackmailing Republican party. Its like setting you house on fire and then blaming the fire dept for it. The Republithugs, say they will not allow the govt to pay its bills until the Senate and the POTUS give in on demands. Then they have the Balls to say the POTUS and Senate are not compromising. So its like this,,,,,I say, I want to burn down YOUR house, you say no…I say, how about just the second floor then…you say, no way. I then state, how about letting me burn down the garage then…again you say No. Then I ask, well what can I burn down, you say nothing, and i accuse YOU of not compromising. Do you idiots understand now how 89% of America sees this now? And if you think that 800000 people furloughed, Women and children denied food through WIC, Meals on wheels, and food stamps are going to forget and forgive this in 2014? You are sadly mistaken. Because we wont let them forget.

    • GTFOBigGovt

      Oh right! The best way to react to fascist government is to vote for it some MORE! The POTUS has EVERYTHING to do with it because he ILLEGALLY changed the law. Now he can LEGALLY change it BACK. That was the “compromise”. But you already knew that, right?

    • Joanne13

      You believe what you hear from MSM which is nothing more than Obama’s PROPAGANDISTS. It’s VERY RARE to ever hear the real truth about what is happening in the government on main stream media. If you TRULY want to know the truth I have a challenge for you… Give yourself a chance to hear the other side. I know you don’t want to do that but TRY for just one week. Watch ‘Bret Baier’ on FOX news every evening for the next week. Watch Bill O’Riley too (yes I know, he’s somewhat arrogant and even annoying). But he WILL tell you the truth. He is BALANCED in his reporting as is Bret Baier. I know you probably HATE FOX and everyone on there. But it’s obvious you are only hearing propaganda and it’s NOT designed to enlighten you but rather to keep you clueless and CONTROLLABLE. It’s up to you whether or not you care enough about America to search for BALANCED news coverage.

    • mommeme

      Put down the glass, step away from the punchbowl. You will be fine once it gets out of your system….if enough brain cells are left. You just outed yourself.

  • desselle0010

    How sorry is it that when all the other Government shut downs occurred this did not happen, so why now? This is all being organised by this administration to inflict as much pain on people as possible so they can get their way or the highway. SORRY!!!

  • disqus_lJapfzCIUh

    While old dog harry sits at the Ritz Carlton…with our tax money…Obama and Obiden are living in our government’s houses….they throw our elderly people out in the streets…They are taking a page out of Michelle and Valerie Jarrett when they were throwing the indigent people from the hospital they worked at, in the street instead of finding them a place to live ….these are gutter trash disgusting people and will never be forgiven here on Earth and in Hell…Obama couldn’t even calm the waters as he promised so now he shuts down the Oceans in Florida and Adios…old people of Lake Mead…Harry ….the guy with noballs to stop Obama said….”why would I want to save a sick child” “Why would I want to do that”

  • right_on

    Sigh…the DEMOCRAT President working hard for, um, ON the America taxpayer? HE, apparently, has drawn a “red line” against the enemies of his party of American Marxist’s.

  • Randy

    If its your cabin or house, tell the park ranger to go f4ck himself. I know that stretch of land, theres nothing there except for your houses. Obama and his minions only understand one thing. Jihad!

  • Eric

    You bastards who elected Obama owe the rest of us an APOLOGY!!!

    • mommeme

      Amen, and a little a$$ kissing….

  • Wow_Who_Would_Think

    The Obama’s should then go home to Chicago until the shut down ends. It is the height of hypocrisy for them to kick people out of their homes because of the homes being on federal property but for them not to do leave the WH for the same reason.

  • Wow_Who_Would_Think

    he Obama’s should then go home to Chicago until the shut down ends. It is the height of hypocrisy for them to kick people out of their homes because of the homes being on federal property but for them not to do leave the WH for the same reason.

  • Getserious!

    The shutdown is causing this how?? The fact it is on federal land has nothing to do with it–are they going to pretend they have government employees taking care of these private homes? Of course not, just another case of this administration telling park rangers they are ordered to make things as difficult as possible for average and elderly Americans!

  • Elaine Sawyer

    Obama and Bidden needs to leave their homes too. They are on Federal Lands Too!!! This is Outrageous!!! They have gone to far!!! Impeach Obama Now!!! I fell sorry for these Senior Citizens being kick out of there homes. God Blessings to These Senior Citizens Always!!!

    just a dry run for inflicting maximum pain with IRS healthcare.

    And because they peacefully LEFT, we see how the sheep of the nation are so easily ruled by Fascists.

    The Republican Party needs to include a plank in their next platform that holds the National Park Service responsible for all this and promises to dismantle it when elected.

    • Joanne13

      ‘National’ parks should be put BACK into STATE control. The feds shouldn’t have their greedy paws in any of them!

  • Rick Jackson

    Hey aren’t these Harry Reid’s voters??? OOPS!

  • Robert Walter Fry Jr.

    The people at the ranger service will bow down and do anything they are told. What happened to people saying this is wrong, i wont do it??? people have to stand up for others and against our common enemy, who at the present moment would be obama and our demo government.

  • Amy Strohmeyer

    The white house is federally owned lets evict it’s current tenants!!

  • darcy922

    This kind of cruelty is totally unacceptable. If that’s the case what about the older folks that has gotten the reverse mortgage loan offered by the government they are allowed to live in their home after the transaction, the only difference is the government owns them. Can they be thrown out as well. ?

    • Joanne13

      Shhhh…… DON’T give them any ideas or those people will be out on the streets TOO! Just sayin…

  • Kathy McAlexander

    The scary part is that any of this “Government Owned” federal land might not be “Government Owned” if our country defaults on its’ debts. So I Pray to God that our POTUS has the sense to recognize, and if he already does, I Pray that he even Gives a Sh*t. Otherwise, we might be at the mercy of the ones we owe the debt to.

  • Jackie Wood

    A home is a home…Federal land or not. A large proportion of my friends are now being kicked out of their retirement homes. If you consider we graduated HS in 1969, college in 1973 +, this is really a nasty mess…we worked, we paid our taxes…

  • Melody Wittman

    I say lets kick the obamas and bidens out of there homes as we the people own them and they are located on federal land.

  • Just Another Guy

    What’s next? Closing “public housing” that receives Federal funds?

  • Kim McCormack

    I just hope to God everybody remembers this pettiness next elections because 80% of the demobrats are right with him.

THE DOLLAR IS NOT WORTH A DIME!!!

    Don’t look now, people….but you HAVE been transported to the USSR/Nazi Germany/mafia era Chicago/a muslim run caliphate, all rolled up into a nice neat, Soros controlled package named Barack Hussein Obama! Born into communism, raised by a muslim in muslim schools, and educated in the best socialist schools the US has to offer; supported and bankrolled by the staunchest anti-American, anti-capitalist, anarchist racists in the world and surrounded by not only his hand-picked cabinet of those with the same mind, but he also has created a “shadow government” of even more radicals that wouldn’t have survived even the most cursory examination from the Senate…this is the perfect storm released on our wonderful nation…elected not once, but twice…given eight full years to wreak his havoc on We The People!! Now that he’s beginning to be seen in his full glory, and we’re beginning to realize the bitter taste of the fruit of his works, it’s just a bit too late to stop his runaway train of destruction now!!

  • MikeTheTiger

    Don’t be fooled, this is all Obama and Harry Reid, not Republicans. If these folks can’t remain on federal land due to a government shutdown caused by the Senate’s failure to act on 4 bills sent to them by the House and the President’s threat to veto any bill that doesn’t fund ACA. So who’s not negotiating here? Sounds to me like this is all a problem cause by Democrats. Do they really think we are too stupid to realize this? The President is picking and choosing who he wants to punish – this should be illegal. The Forrest Service doesn’t provide any direct services to these folks, except maybe from Smokey The Bear. Isn’t the White House on Federal Land? Why isn’t it closed down?

    • Cherub Rock

      You have been fooled!

  • sue

    I say it’s time to charge this despot with crimes against the people! If it was le
    gal to sell them the rights to the homes on federal land, it should be illegal to order them to vacate! Could someone check on this? It’s unbelievable!

  • sue

    This must be something he learned at the knee of someone, not familiar with our Constitution. Let’s send a camera crew out and find out how many of the dislocated from Lake Mead voted for Mr. Obama. You know, it is the Executive Branch that is ordering all this closure; not the House Republicans. They do not have that privilege. Why doesn’t the alphabet media do some real investigating and get to the truth about what is really going on with the alleged shutdown?

  • WrinkledThought

    If we are going to kick out folks from their homes on Federal Lands, we should demand it starts at the White House!!!!!!!

  • Harold Schaefer

    Are you a member of congress? Reread my answer. My comment was directed at the elected officials who are holding this nation hostage and refuse to negotiate, not anyone on this page!

  • Harold Schaefer

    Really the ACA is an exact copy of Romneys plan in effect in MA. If this plan was really as bad as they say, why wouldn’t they let it take effect and then let the american people run every democrat and republican who voted for it out of office and then put their plan in?

  • JaxCracker

    These people knew that this could happen. They had to agree to have a primary residence elsewhere before being allowed to live in homes on Federal land. Sure, Obama could sidestep this situation by issuing an Executive Order permitting them to stay in their homes. But before we become demagogue dealers like libs, we need to discuss the WHOLE truth and not stop reading about a situation when we hear what we want to hear. I’m not quite as upset once I realized that all these residents do have their primary homes to go back to.
