We're Park Rangers and you're not allowed here!!

The National Park Service has entered its new role of totalitarian enforcement squad with vigor and enthusiasm not normally seen from government employees. After all that is where the phrase "good enough for government work" came from.

Of course I guess those people never got to live out the life of ardent ass-hat preventing seniors and tourists from seeing Old Faithful erupt
That's right, armed Park Rangers prevented people from leaving the Old Faithful Inn until they were good and ready to leave the park completely. Notice they didn't give them back the money they paid for the trip. That money went towards the enhanced security measures instituted at the park to prevent terrorism, recreating.

Think about it. You save and save to go see Old Faithful, instead you get some moronic asshat who obviously isn't very bright. So you get to be illegally detained in your hotel and prevented from walking IN THE FRICKING WOODS!!!!

The level of hatred and anger that the American people should be showing right now is unprecedented. We have never had such a petty petulant child in the White House. I think the most telling thing about all of this is the fact that the Park Rangers admit what they are doing.

The Washington Times were the ones to report that the troops were; well I think they say it the best:

“It’s a cheap way to deal with the situation,” an angry Park Service ranger in Washington says of the harassment. “We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting.”

 That comment was made after an anonymous Ranger was asked about the parking lot to Mt. Vernon being barry-caded. After all the Government doesn't even own Mt. Vernon. That is privately owned by the Mt. Vernon Ladies Association. I'm sure the original George W. would be nothing but proud that one of the few men in the history of the world to lead this great nation is using his home as a way to throw a temper tantrum.

Then again this is the same group of people that think saving a child with cancer is irresponsible and reckless.  
Of course you would think the same thing if you were trying to use the American people as pawns in a game we really don't give a damn about. 
Soon someone in the government is going to have to realize that 17% of the government is shut down and no one is really being affected by it. Those purposely affected by the Ass-Hat brigade at the National Park Service excluded.
What happens when people finally come to that conclusion? How is this level of government and spending not the baseline where Republicans start the budget negotiations? Make them prove a need for every dime more than we are required to spend right now. No that number does not include the backpay gift given to those who are currently on paid vacation furlough.

Although apparently all the bad press is getting to them. Apparently they have removed the barry-cades from the Lincoln Memorial. Wonder how loud we have to get before they would remove Barry from the national monument that is the White House?
