Barrycades popping up everywhere – even where they should not be!
Apparently the National Park Service has closed down a park in McLean, VA it does not operate:
Pointing to Park Service claims that parks have to be closed because the agency can’t afford staff during the government closure, Eberly wrote: “What utter crap. We have operated the Farm successfully for 32 years after the NPS cut the Farm from its budget in 1980 and are fully staffed and prepared to open today. But there are barricades at the Pavilions and entrance to the Farm. And if you were to park on the grass and visit on your own, you run the risk of being arrested. Of course, that will cost the NPS staff salaries to police the Farm against intruders while leaving it open will cost them nothing.”
Basically, the NPS has commandeered a park to close.
More madness – I hear rumors the overlooks on George Washington Parkway are also closed. Why? They are just places to pull over, park and admire the Potomac River?
Why is Obama wasting tax payer money on Barrycades like this?
Update: Confirmed, parking spaces on the GW parkway have been ‘shutdown’ with Barrycades.
