A woman states her memories of the bizarre closing of Yellowstone Park.
"The bus stopped along a road when a large herd of bison passed nearby, and seniors filed out to take photos. Almost immediately, an armed ranger came by and ordered them to get back in, saying they couldn’t “recreate.” The tour guide, who had paid a $300 fee the day before to bring the group into the park, argued that the seniors weren’t “recreating,” just taking photos.
“She responded and said,‘Sir, you are recreating,’ and her tone became very aggressive,” Vaillancourt said.
The seniors quickly filed back onboard and the bus went to the Old Faithful Inn, the park’s premier lodge located adjacent to the park’s most famous site, Old Faithful geyser. That was as close as they could get to the famous site — barricades were erected around Old Faithful, and the seniors were locked inside the hotel, where armed rangers stayed at the door."

Our park rangers are thugs.
Get this...

The National Park Service officials blocked parking lots to George Washington’s Mt. Vernon Estate and Gardens after the government shutdown this week. There’s just one problem. The historic site is privately owned.

Oopsie...Obama couldn't inflict punitive measures on those tourists anyway.

Everyone should have equal access to the system after LOWERING THE COSTS in the system - not increasing them!!
Everyone should have equal access to the system by competition and obtaining the lowest rates that extend across state lines after LOWERING THE COSTS in the present health care Ponzi scheme.
Everyone should have equal access to the system by insuring themselves against a catastrophic illness after LOWERING THE COSTS and obtaining the LOWEST RATES by competition in the free market.
Everyone should have equal access to the system by providing a safety net and free clinics to those who cannot afford even the LOWER COSTS of health insurance at the LOWEST RATES.
Giving the IRS - the IRS!!!- control over the health care system before even LOWERING THE COSTS and offering LOWER RATES is not only insane but absolutely bizarre!!!
I totally agree with you. Everyone should have equal access to the system, but there were far better solutions than total government control (which can't even control itself) managed and overseen by the IRS. The IRS!!!
Are you frikkin' kidding me???
No one will have equal access to the system under the ACA. You'll be lucky just to have access...period.
Total jibberish! What's your mission babe? Everyone here knows you're batshyt crazy. Are you delusional enough to think that you're changing minds???

Examples of how Obama will continue to weaken the military
There has been a noticeable and equally disturbing trend to purge not only Christians but experienced generals from military service.
The number of generals either drummed out of the service or forced into early retirement since Obama took office is growing by the month.
Some have been flushed due to sexual indiscretions on their part, but in other cases pretexts have been manufactured to cashier them.
Many of these generals (for example, Carter Ham) were our most effective and experienced military leaders.
By definition, these generals are being replaced by men with less military experience and less military wisdom.
WASHINGTON – Lindsay Rodman is a Harvard-educated lawyer who delved into women's studies as an undergraduate at Duke. She is also a Marine Corps officer.

Now assigned to the Pentagon as a lawyer, Capt. Rodman has viewed the growing debate over sexual assault in the military with alarm. Her concern: the Pentagon's study on sexual assault has exaggerated the scope of the problem, leading to Draconian "solutions" from Capitol Hill that will only make things worse.

"Draconian" solutions from Capital Hill. Neither of us could have said it better ourselves.

House Republicans have passed funding bills for WIC, NIH, PNS, Border Guards and other agencies... Obama just say's NO...

Obama closes Florida oceans to fish and tourist: The Park Service will have rangers on duty to police the ban and deny access to an ocean.

Obama: Has shut down the Amber Alert website while keeping open Michelle Obama's Let's Move Drink Water campaign website. Michelle deciding and telling obama what is essential and should be left open...

Benghazi.... lest we forget.
The attackers entered the main building and rattled the locked metal grille of the safe haven. They carried jerry cans of diesel fuel, spread the fuel over the floor and furniture, and set fires. As thick smoke filled the building, Stevens, Smith, and Strickland (their security guard) moved to the bathroom and lay on the floor, but they decided to leave the safe haven after being overcome by smoke. Strickland exited through the window, but Stevens and Smith did not follow him. Strickland returned several times but couldn't find them in the smoke; he went up to the roof and radioed other agents. During the attack, a group of Al Q’ieda terrorist extracted the unconscious Ambassador from the smoke filled room through a window, and then placed him on the courtyard's stone tile floor, they cheered “Allah Akbar” he was taken out of the US Mission, beaten, burned, stabbed multiple times, and his body was sexually mutilated; his body was left in a gutter for dead. The Libyan citizens recognized Ambassador Stevens, respected him, and took him to the local hospital where he died later that evening. The State Department and White House covered up how Ambassador Stevens was brutally murdered and sexually mutilated, and stated he died of asphyxiation by smoke inhalation. No autopsy report was ever released; today the State Department maintains Ambassador Stevens died of smoke inhalation.
MILITARY SUPPORT READY TO DEPLOY TO BENGHAZI (LESS THAN 2 HOURS AWAY)
Obama already thinks we're the Dumb and Dumber United States of America and would buy anything - even his lie about a video - to protect his second term.

Rescuing those men in Benghazi may have caused too much of a ruckus and brought attention to his terrorism is on the run mantra.

Too much was at stake that late in the game and on the anniversary of 9/11 to boot - his winning, I mean.

Your Tea Party hero Paul Ryan said they existed. Are you calling him a liar?
Perhaps even Paul Ryan has heard that propaganda bullshit so often, he just assumed they exist. He was probably shocked to discover those mythical subsidies actually don't exist.
How about you look into the sources Paul Ryan used and tell us what you find. You might find out that even Paul Ryan was surprised to discover they don't exist. Anyway, you, "you" being the idiot posting this bullshit, still haven't identified any subsidies paid to oil companies.

Subsidies to oil companies is an urban legend. They don't exist.
Or, you can identify these mythical subsidies, which you will post your proof that these ghost subsidies actually exist.

Like I say to the television when one of those ghosts-are-real shows are on, show me the ghost.

Pretty sure Obama lit up a few with Boehner. Probably still does.

But the nerve of that Boehner! Wanting to sit down and have a discussion! How dare he! Didn't he hear Obama saying over and over and over again "I will not negotiate!"

Talk about hutzpah! The king had spoken and Boehner refused to act like one of his royal subjects!

Obama is a communist. Communists never consider that something that belonged to a private citizen that also happened to be president could be private property.
This is just one more of the overwhelming number of incidents that prove Obama is just an ignorant buffoon.
