This whole country has gone crazy, more than usual.

Anyone else find this story hilarious, or is it just me?

i'm working without being paid and you're recreating - i hate you

"My father took a lot of crap from the Japanese," she recalled, her eyes welling with tears. "Every day they made him bow to the Japanese flag. But he stood up to them.

"He always said to stand up for what you believe in, and don't let them push you around," she said, adding she was sad to see "fear, guns and control" turned on citizens in her own country.


Uh, my father did a lot of stuff, too. Doesn't entitle me to anything.

And I seem to recall lots of older people, especially here in Arizona, wanting more 'guns and control' because they were afraid of whatever. See: Arpaio.

"The tourists were treated harshly by armed park employees,"

Anyone who has ever been to a National Park/Monument/Memorial/Etc knows there are such a thing as law enforcement Rangers.  This is America, of course they are armed.

What part about "closed" don't you understand?

Instead of whining, call your house rep and tell them to do their farking jobs.

My father stood up to the Chinamen in Korea who made him bow to the Japanese flag. They looked like Hulk Hogans.

I understand the reality, but the perception, especially if the shutdown lasts through next week's immigration demonstration on the Mall, is going to start looking bad for the Democrats and Obama's secret Park police.

So this is the best we can come up with for the government shutdown?  People are inconvenienced because national parks are closed?

Funny that those who are screaming the loudest are the same ones who want to open up national park lands to drilling for oil and gas.

What's sad is that drilling is still going on in national parks in Ohio, Texas, Florida and West Virginia...

It's a lot like the birth certificate thing. I'm not saying he wasn't born in this country, but not releasing his certificate of live COLB birth was bad news...for Bertolt Hussein Bolt.

As someone who has actually worked in a state park, folks have zero idea of how they work, and all the stuff that goes on to make sure that their "recreating" is safe. And folks who used to be in the military should know this.

But instead, we get the "Give me convenience, or give me death" crowd...

I love that lodge!  Take me prisoner!

They won't let you go up to the tippy top balcony anymore but if you are really crafty you can get about halfway up before someone yells WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING?  In which you respond in broken fake eastern-European language of indeterminate origin.

Or so I heard from a cousin's friend.

That morning walk in the geyser field in front of it is really amazing.  Just make sure you're the first one up.
 
2013-10-08 10:25:11 AM
Yeah, getting out of a bus to take pics of a hoard of buffalo running by might not be the safest thing in the world to a park ranger not getting paid to keep your ass safe.

Grstapo tactics like rounding up prople, putting them into buses, taking them to a train station and executing them?

vernonFL: Grstapo tactics like rounding up prople, putting them into buses, taking them to a train station and executing them?


No, no.  Treating them harshly.

Though I'm dubious that that is how the entire thing went down.

Ranger says "Please, back on the bus, unfortunately you're not allowed to be here"

What was heard "Get the fark back on the bus you scum, you can't be having fun".

There was an unusually long story on the CBS news this morning blaming the shutdown for a couple getting lost in as state park that was open. You know, because they couldn't possibly get lost in the National park next door. *eyeroll*

The problem is, there's going to be a lot of republican districts that will vote in Tea Party candidates to replace Republicans in the next primaries.

Should have let them park their Hoverrounds on Old Faithful.

The polling data is already turning against the GOP shutdown. Plus their money men are are screaming at the republicans to not force a default. Obama and the democrats are backed into a corner and can't give into the GOP demands...where we go from here I dunno. Probably nowhere good tho.

Which is extra funny because it's a STATE park, and funded (usually) through the state's budget.

/that's probably the joke here

My job at a national monument ended the day before the furloughs went into effect. I was told that if I stayed in employee housing for another day to get my stuff together (that was OK), that I could not go outside and wander around the place, could not hike into the park, could not do much of anything except get my stuff and leave. The gates into the visitor center were closed, and not even we could go up there after we'd been discharged.

Big deal. Them's the rules.

Old people are not entirely consistent in what they want.  Much like young people.  Or people in general.

Marcus Aurelius: What part about "closed" don't you understand?

Instead of whining, call your house rep

  senator & the president and tell them to do their farking jobs.

I find it hilarious that anyone can claim that the house, that has sent over 20 bills to stop this BS, is at fault, but the senate who because of Harry Reid has refused to even vote on any of them, and the president who says he will veto them, are blameless. Never mind the parks directive that flatly states that things will be closed even if it costs more to do so.

/yes, I know, facts be damned.

But no what we will have is Republicans jetting out to Yellowstone, at taxpayer expense, to stomp their feet and yell at park rangers.

Because the Democrats should just accept the demands of the minority party, right?

And why won't Boehner allow a vote on the CR that passed the Senate?
