Obama sent out the word to make the government shut-down as bad as possible for as many people as possible. (This from a member of the National Park Service)

Federal properties throughout the nation are closed to the people that OWN THEM….  

He closed the WWII monument (which is a SIDEWALK MONUMENT) to WWII vets IN WHEEL CHAIRS…. They simply moved the barricades and rolled in.  Since that day, the barricades have been reinforced.

Not only is the memorial at the base of Mt. Rushmore closed to the public – the scenic overlooks along the highway (those parking places where you can pull off the road and take in the view) are closed.  The National Park Service placed cones along highway viewing areas outside Mount Rushmore this week, barring visitors from pulling over and taking pictures of the famed monument.

The Obama administration allowed a massive rally for comprehensive immigration reform on Tuesday in Washington, D.C. on the National Mall, even though it is supposed to be closed due to the federal government shutdown.

Even the fricking Grand Canyon has been closed!

The Clinical Center at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has suspended its dog therapy program because of the government shutdown.  The dogs are provided by Therapy Dogs International and visited sick kids, including kids with cancer.  Program shut down by Obama.

In the North Carolina mountains, an innkeeper is trying to defy orders to close his facility along the Blue Ridge Parkway.  He receives NO federal money.

The website for the National Amber Alert was shut down.  Only after a huge national outrage was the website restored.  Note that Michelle Obama’s ‘Lets Move’ website remained up and running.

Ralph and Joyce Spencer, 77 and 80 years of age, respectively, were evicted from their home on Lake Mead in Nevada by an officious park ranger who told them they had 24 hours to vacate the premises. The Spencers own their home outright, but it sits on land leased from the federal government.  They have been living in the back of their store since this eviction.

AFN (Armed Forces Network), which brings delayed and LIVE broadcasts to military members and their families serving overseas has been switched off – except for the news.  This means no live sporting events.

And today we learn that death benefits for five fallen warriors are NOT being paid by the Pentagon.  This is an outrage!  And it underscores Obama’s complete disdain for the American military.

Everything listed above could be reversed with the stroke of that 'Executive Order' pen Obama so loves to use when it suits his agenda.  And I guarantee you that entitlement checks will not be late.

It is an absolute joke for a president, who picks and chooses which LAWS he wants to follow NOW says he's following the law regarding the government shutdown.

It's also an absolute LIE for Obama to insist that the debt limit be raised on the one hand, and to say the DEBT/DEFICIT will NOT increase on the other.

87% of the government is still up and running.

Over 800,000 NON-ESSENTIAL employees have been sent home, altho Congress voted last week to pay them for the time they've been furloughed - a nice vacation at taxpayers' expense.  I guess my definition for non-essential is obviously not the same as that of the government.  I think they should be sent home permanently - without pay, as in 'laid-off'.

I personally wouldn't care if they shut the thing down PERMANENTLY.  Maybe Americans would start taking responsibility for THEMSELVES again....
