We’re going to have a little test that will determine if you are an a-hole. But first, let’s have a look at the real Barack Obama. Let us review what kind of person he is. Obama is supposed to be the President of all of the United States and not just the President of his party. He is supposed to watch out for the general welfare of all of us. The Presidential Oath reads:
“I, name, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and I will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
Nowhere in the oath does it allow for punishing Americans for doing nothing wrong.
Barack Obama has issued orders to close National Parks and make life miserable for Americans.
“We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting.”
Obama has stranded tourists in Yellowstone.
Obama has evicted elderly people from their homes.
1. A barrier (usually temporary) that exists for no reason. 2. A barrier erected for political reasons.
“Dude, Obama barrycaded the park.”
“Hey, let’s put up some barrycades to keep those World War II veterans away from the open-air World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C., in order to try and score some cheap political points.”
Obama is blocking the road that allows for viewing of Mount Rushmore.
Obama is even trying to shut down the ocean:
Just before the weekend, the National Park Service informed charter boat captains in Florida that the Florida Bay was “closed” due to the shutdown. Until government funding is restored, the fishing boats are prohibited from taking anglers into 1,100 square-miles of open ocean. Fishing is also prohibited at Biscayne National Park during the shutdown.
The Park Service will also have rangers on duty to police the ban… of access to an ocean. The government will probably use more personnel and spend more resources to attempt to close the ocean, than it would in its normal course of business.
This is governing by temper-tantrum. It is on par with the government’s ham-fisted attempts to close the DC WWII Memorial, an open-air public monument that is normally accessible 24 hours a day. By accessible I mean, you walk up to it. When you have finished reflecting, you then walk away from it.
At least that Memorial is an actual structure, with some kind of perimeter that can be fenced off. Florida Bay is the ocean. How, pray tell, do you “close” 1,100 square miles of ocean? Why would one even need to do so?
Obama shut down and barricaded the Vietnam Memorial:
Via William Jacobson, NBC’s affiliate in Washington, D.C. reports that police ordered tourists and Vietnam war veterans who were visiting the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall to leave the memorial at one point on Friday.
After one group of veterans went around the barricade, “the park ranger told them the wall was closed,” NBC’s Mark Seagraves reported. “Later another group of vets showed up and moved the barricades. At that point, the memorial filled with vets and tourists. That’s when police came and moved everyone out.”
The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall is a black granite outdoor wall on which the names of the 58,272 service members who died or were unaccounted for during the Vietnam war are inscribed.
This is the Vietnam Vets’ Memorial:
It’s a wall. It’s a goddam wall. What is there to close?
John Ondrasik of Five for Fighting was literally pushed out of the Jefferson Memorial and he asked why he was being pushed:
I asked him “why do you have to put your hands on me and push me out when I’m leaving anyways”…he replied “it’s quicker this way”…
Obama has shut down the Amber Alert website but Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” website remains up. There’s no money for the safety of missing children but there is money to infuse the ego of Michelle Obama.
National Parks remained open during the last “shutdown.”
But the good news?
Obama’s golf course remains open!
Obama has no interest in alleviating or preventing suffering. He wants Americans to suffer maximally. Mr T might describe Mr. Obama’s Neighborhood this way:
Hello, boys and girls. The new word for today.. is “pain”.
Pain. As much as possible on as many Americans as possible. For unnecessary and cheap political points. Obama is spending far more money on personnel and materials to keep people out of unstaffed memorials than he would leaving them alone. This is the measure of the man. Never let a crisis go to waste. It doesn’t matter who and how many you hurt to get your own way.
What’s next? Does Obama kidnap the children of Republicans and threaten them with death?
So, now for the test- and it’s a simple one. Did you vote for Barack Obama?
If you did, you are an a-hole.
And that goes double for the Obama lapdog media.
Vets no, illegals si
A planned immigration reform rally will take place on the National Mall on Tuesday even though the site is closed due to the government shutdown.
Organizers for the “Camino Americano: March for Immigration Reform” were spotted Monday setting up a stage and equipment on the National Mall for the rally which will take place on Tuesday.
A few scattered barriers around the park have signs informing visitors that the area is closed as a result of the government shutdown.
Susana Flores, a spokesperson for the rally, confirmed for the Washington Examiner that the Park Service will allow the event to take place under the group’s rights granted by the First Amendment.
Obama will punish Vermont to the tune of $90 million:
Northern New England is in its glory; now and for the next week or so. The leaves are nearing peak color and until yesterday, there has been a big high pressure zone parked over the area so the weather has been what would once have been described as “heavenly.” It has been raining now but in a few days, the sun will shine again and the leaves will still be there, in full. And for that, Washington can take no credit.
However … it has done something that will cause some small business people, who depend on this season, to suffer. According to the Caledonian Record, the U.S. Forest Service has closed 21 campgrounds and many more camp sites in the White Mountain National Forest and part of the government “shutdown.”
What is called “leaf-peeping season” generally brings more than half a million visitors to New Hampshire, “pumping nearly $90 million into the economy.”
