Shutdown Follies

The District of Criminals is also a theater of the absurd. We have a graceless, feckless, ball-less "leader" who won't lead and thumb-up-their-asses legislators who won't legislate.

This is the result of an increasingly dictatorial government raking in more and more of our rights and our money and then doling them back out to us via complex bunko scams and vote-buying schemes.  A government that tries to do everything ends up screwing everything up.  Trying to impose one-size-fits-all solutions on a diverse nation is a sure recipe for chaos ad infinitum. 

Yes, Fools Obama Really did Shut Down Mount Rushmore

Foolish liberals bit hard on the e-mail hoax showing the photoshopped picture of helicopters dangling a giant sheet to block the view of Mount Rushmore. Yes, the humorless haters actually thought that the conservatives, or "tea baggers," really believed it.  We're so stupid dontcha know!  Hyuk, hyuk, hyuk!

While they were laughing and congratulating one another on how smart they all were, Obama actually did close Mount Rushmore, and despite what the Huff and Puff Postington says, a local South Dakota paper says they even coned off the pulloffs where drivers can stop and see it for free.

He also closed profit makers the Grand Canyon and Yellowstone National Park. An American who would disagree with Michelle Obama about being proud of her country gives an eyewitness account of the gestapo-like tactics park visitors were subject to:
For many hours her tour group, which included senior citizen visitors from Japan, Australia, Canada and the United States, were locked in a Yellowstone National Park hotel under armed guard.

The tourists were treated harshly by armed park employees, she said, so much so that some of the foreign tourists with limited English skills thought they were under arrest.

When finally allowed to leave, the bus was not allowed to halt at all along the 2.5-hour trip out of the park, not even to stop at private bathrooms that were open along the route.  (Eagle Tribune)
Welcome to the turd world...

We have all the intelligence and military might in the world, but we haven't won a war since 1945, so the dictatorial regime turns its instruments of oppression on the people.  The buffoonish klown kongress can't get its collective stuff together, so the immature, spiteful president decides to hurt as many people across this once-great land as he can.
Mark Steyn, on the government shutting down the WW II Memorial.  Please read it to the end.  What he says hits the bulls-eye:
Thus, they decided to close down an unfenced open-air site – which, oddly enough, requires more personnel to shut than it would to keep it open.
The World War II Memorial exists thanks to some $200 million in private donations – plus $15 million or so from Washington: In other words, the feds paid for the grass.
But the thug usurpers of the bureaucracy want to send a message: In today’s America, everything is the gift of the government, and exists only at the government’s pleasure, whether it’s your health insurance, your religious liberty, or the monument to your fallen comrades.
Read the whole thing here, and weep for what your nation has become.
