Obama's Gestapo, the National Park Service, strikes again....
Park Service Tries To Shut Down Private Inn

The Pisgah Inn, a private hotel that holds a concession on the Blue Ridge Parkway, has become a national sensation as it defies “intimidation” and a National Park Service order to close its doors.

After a tumultuous few days, inn owner Bruce O’Connell told The Washington Times on Friday morning that he had just reopened his doors for customers, despite the park service telling him he had to shut down. He says he’s essentially private property, on a road that’s still open, and uses no government personnel, so he sees no reason to quit operating.

“I’m questioning their authority to shut me,” Mr. O’Connell said.

The National Park Service is involved in several high-profile battles during the shutdown, including having barricaded open-air monuments and memorials in Washington. Veterans busted through barricades at the National World War II Memorial earlier this week, gaining national attention.

Quote:Michael Litterst, the Park Service’s chief spokesman, said they have no choice but to shut down concessions.

“It’s a matter that we consider the National Park System to be a single entity, and without an appropriation, the entire system is closed and cannot reopen until funding is restored,” he said. “We do not believe it is appropriate or feasible to have some parts of the system open while others are closed to the public.”

Nothing in this is true at all. These people have no clue as to what this country was founded to be. And yeah, put this directly at the feet of TR (the *******)

Beautiful area of North Carolina, but fairly close to traditionally smelly paper mill in Canton,NC.
Love the line, "We had no choice but to shut down...."
Guess some said the same back in the '30's. Easier to follow than to lead.

The republicans knew full well what would happen if they shut the government down. Why is everyone acting as if they are surprised.

That's like driving on the sidewalk and than being surprised when someone gets run over.

Odd they focused on the national park service (and people they don't control, but never mind that). It's almost like the president was trying to see how many people he could piss off.

ding ding. Just like shutting down White House tours during the sequester fiasco. Anything to try and make "government cuts" seem painful to the citizens.

Honestly speaking. What is it you believe the president could have done about this?

Surprised Obama has not tried to close down the internet.
After all, we didn't build it. Has to pass through some government location, other than the NSA.

And still more

http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2013/10/04/civ...nial-farm/

Quote: The farm, which re-creates American life circa 1771, has been self-sufficient since the federal government slashed its funds in 1980. It receives no federal funds.

But, for the first time ever, the National Park Service ordered the park closed and placed barricades at its facilities. It has also threatened anyone who enters the park with arrest.

In an update on the farm’s plight, Managing Director Anna Eberly says that the farm has been “critical of the National Park Service because we think they have closed us down illegally according to the terms of the agreement we signed with them in 1981.” Eberly says that the farm’s agreement with the NPS states that the park service is only asked to provide police protection when necessary, and has no authority to close the park down. Eberly notes that the farm has elected to call in local law enforcement from Fairfax County, not the NPS, when police are needed. She also notes that because the farm is located very near the CIA, everyone feels quite safe on its grounds.

So, who's doing the arresting if no one is working?

Obama could have left them alone. They do not work for him.
They are a private hotel.
