“After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time.” – Valerie Jarrett
For those who are anti-monarchy, a regent is put into place when the actual king or queen is incapable of ruling. It’s usually a parent, son or daughter.
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.
[head shaking] Are they putting up nets at the international waters 11 mile buoys, too?
Now that the Federal Park Service’s “make it as painful as possible” includes closing 1,100 square miles of open Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Florida that somehow is part of the Everglades (why not just tell the moon to quit rising), perhaps the petty stupidity and vindictiveness of what has actually been “shut-down” needs some human nature type of analysis.
A member of my family who has lived a long time said it, and I am inclined to agree: such petty vindictiveness smacks of a woman’s touch.
Woman get credit for being “the fairer sex,” but seriously, was there anything more vicious than a girl fight in middle school?
FAMOUS SEXIST QUOTE:
“Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned,
Nor Hell a fury like a woman scorned.”
William Congreve (1670-1729)
The Mourning Bride (1697), Act III, sc. 8
Is it still sexist if it is true?
It could just be that the less than manly Obama is surrounded by a number of women with fairly strong personalities, and their cycles have synced. But, as we all know the man cannot think without at least one teleprompter. More than likely some woman has decided to make life hell for the people who tried to block her agenda, and the O-man is following orders. Those people would be everyone who takes advantage of the National Parks and likes to visit sites of historical importance – ordinary Americans who tend to cling to our guns and religion and visitors to our country who were expecting something quite different when it comes to hospitality – apparently.
(Although, one bonus of the shutdown is that the KKK rally at Gettysburg was cancelled earlier this week. Cowards. Not only do they cover their faces, but they aren’t men enough to storm the barricades.)
Seriously, why does Valerie Jarrett have a Secret Service detail?
At this point, the National Park Service Barry-cades and padlocking of publicly owned land used for leisure activities has not done much of anything other than run up a tab for security that usually isn’t needed and make the voters visiting and paying to use the facilities mad. Even brides are being affected. From ABC News:
Two dozen weddings scheduled for October at the National Mall and memorial parks in D.C. were already canceled. Hundreds more couples across the country planning to wed at locations such as Grand Canyon National Park, Joshua Tree, Acadia and others have also been impacted or received notification that they may lose their event permits.
And that doesn’t include Cliff House in San Francisco, a privately owned, AAA rated Restaurant which is shuttered due to being on Federal Property. The staff has been kind enough to help couples find other venues for their weddings, but somehow it just won’t be the same.
Not that I have much use for the wedding industry per se, but that’s just mean. And really, what man would care?
No, it is not military or congress being inconvenienced, but everyday people who just want to visit and use what is rightfully ours. People who play by the rules. And mid-stream we just change the rules because someone is not getting their way?
Oh, yeah, that’s mature.
As the shutdown has unfolded, the messaging from the White House and the Senate majority has been over the top hyperbole more or less telling the world that the TEA Party is who is holding the rest of us hostage. That might work with the truly unengaged, low-information population being fed the party line by the mainstream media, but the brides refused their dream weddings and the fisherman not able to angle in public waters are more likely to be sorts to do their homework.
THAT’s what this White House regime forgets. America isn’t completely uninformed voters. And with the internet and alternative media, the message funnelled through the MSM is increasingly diluted. The truth is coming out and there is not a darn thing the White House can do about it. We know that the House passed bills to keep the National Parks open and the Senate would not pass them.
The people know what’s going on and there is plenty of anger and exasperation out here.
There’s also plenty of people defying the shutdown orders. So much so, that it’s becoming a joke, especially in Washington.
It is most doubtful that the TEA Party really has an interest in depriving brides of their dream weddings, or making it impossible to park at Mount Vernon. We certainly do not think blocking access to the nation’s battlefields where hundreds of thousands of young men died to ensure our freedom is acceptable. We cheer on the spunky veterans who lead the charge to defy really ridiculous closures of war memorials while the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration buys over $20,000 worth of dogfish to feed sharks. (No, not lawyers, real sharks.) The headlines the regime wanted materialized. The outrage against Republicans hasn’t.
Can you say backfire?
Outside of parenting and school administrations, only petty and vindictive people withhold perks and cause inconvenience to score points.
Just who is being vindictive – and why couldn’t it be a woman?
For those who think the world would be better off if women ran it….
