Park Service Ranger:'We've Been Told to Make Life As Difficult For People As We Can' by demokRATs...

“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.”

The Obama Regime expects the MSM to carry their water by blaming Republicans for all the pain caused by the government shutdown.

This is not a surprise - we've been calling the administration's needless barrycades "shutdown theater" all week for a reason. We haven't forgotten how the Obama administration also used ham-fisted scare tactics in the wake of the Sequester in an attempt to spur public outrage over the cuts in spending.

But when stories like this one get out there, their "blame the GOP" narrative becomes somewhat less convincing.

The War memorial is a none personnel, open air site 24/7 in DC...

A congressional watchdog group filed an ethics complaint against a Republican lawmaker who was caught on camera berating a park ranger over a memorial closed as part of the government shutdown.

Rep. Randy Neugebauer (R-TX) demanded to know why the National Park Service Ranger was keeping most tourists out of the World War II Memorial, although visiting veterans had been permitted to enter by the Interior Department.

The lawmaker, who helped set up the shutdown by voting with his House Republican colleagues to delay implementation of the Affordable Care Act, told the park ranger she should be ashamed of herself.

Footage of the confrontation Wednesday between Neugebauer, the park ranger and a crowd gathered at the memorial was shot by NBC News.

Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington filed a complaint with the Office of Congressional Ethics against Neugebauer, saying his conduct violated the requirement that lawmakers act “at all times in a manner that reflects creditably on the House.”

The group’s executive director, Melanie Sloan, told Raw Story the congressman had angered her for humiliating the park ranger by treating the woman with disrespect in front of a group of people.

“You can’t shut down the government and then go yell at a park ranger as if she had some role in it,” Sloan said.

Sloan said she doubted the ethics committee would take steps to punish Neugebauer, but she hoped he’d at least be sent a letter of reprimand.

“People already hate members of Congress, and videos like this only shows why,” Sloan said.

And on the heels of that public show of support, a petition on Change.org began circulating on Friday, accusing Neugebauer of "incorrectly interfering in the duties of his fellow public employee" and calling on the congressman to "correct himself and publicly apologize" to the ranger.

The petition, started by a man who identified himself as Nelson Jacobsen, says Neugebauer "rebuked a U.S. Park Service Ranger for carrying out orders and did so in a very public way that makes it look like [he] doesn't understand how public law and chain of command works."

"Rep Neugebauer needs to correct himself and publicly apologize," the petition says. "It's really that simple."

One of the petition's signers said Neugebauer "should be ashamed of himself and his party. That ranger was doing her job and he was NOT doing his."

Another signer said, "It's absolutely absurd that the very individuals who have caused this shutdown act as if they are the victims."

I know liberals can only think in the abstract and can't grasp the unintended consequences of their envisioned utopia where free health care and free money flows like milk and honey.

But the question is why?

It's no secret the government can't even manage itself and everything they touch turns to crap.

So why would anyone think more waste, fraud and abuse in an already dysfunctional government is the solution to anything?

Seriously.

Isn't this what they do in third world countries?

WASHINGTON -- WASHINGTON (AP)— A man set himself on fire on the National Mall in the nation's capital as passers-by rushed over to help douse the flames, officials and witnesses said Friday afternoon.

The reason for the self-immolation was not immediately clear and the man's identity was not disclosed. But it occurred in public view, on a central national gathering place, in a city still rattled by a mass shooting last month and a high-speed car chase outside the U.S. Capitol on Thursday that ended with a woman being shot dead by police.

The man on the Mall suffered life-threatening injuries and was airlifted to the hospital, said District of Columbia fire department spokesman Tim Wilson.

He was standing by himself in the center portion of the Mall when he emptied the contents of a red gasoline can on himself and set himself on fire moments later, said Katy Scheflen, who witnessed it as she walked across the area. Police say they responded around 4:20 p.m. Friday.

Scheflen said passing joggers took off their shirts in an effort to help douse the flames, and the man was clearly alive as the fire spread. A police department spokesman said he was conscious and breathing at the scene. MedStar Washington Hospital Center tweeted that the man was taken there and he was in critical condition.

"There was not a lot people could do because it was a gasoline fire," Scheflen said.

She said he may have said something before he acted "but it was nothing intelligible." She said she did not see him holding any signs before he set himself ablaze and that there was another man with a tripod set up near him but did not mention if he was filming.

Lt. Pamela Smith of the U.S. Park Police, which is investigating along with the D.C. police department, said: "I'm not aware of any signage or any articulation of any causes."

The D.C. police department has dispatched its violent crimes branch, which responds to cases in which a person suffers serious injury.

Wonder when Obama will figure out his stubbornness and refusal to compromise like real leaders do will backfire.

The buck really does stop with him. Not Republicans.

Maybe when his approval numbers dip down into the 30s (41% now), he'll have an epiphany that is hasn't been all about him after all.
