Feds evict elderly couple from their home, cite shutdown

“We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can,” an unnamed park ranger told the Washington Times. “It’s disgusting.”

Washington Times:

National Park Service officials cited the government shutdown as the reason for ordering an elderly Nevada couple out of their home, which sits on federal land.

“Unfortunately overnight stays are not permitted until a budget is passed and the park can reopen,” an NPS spokesman explained to KTNV.

Ralph and Joyce Spencer, aged 80 and 77, respectively, own their home, but the government owns the land on which it sits.

“I had to be sure and get his walker and his scooter that he has to go in,” Joyce Spencer told the local news outlet. “We’re not hurt in any way except it might cost me if I have to go buy more pants.”

Similarly, the NPS forced privately-operated inns on the Blue Ridge Parkway to close during the shut down.

“We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can,” an unnamed park ranger told the Washington Times. “It’s disgusting.”

That ranger wasn’t referring to the Spencers or the Blue Ridge Parkway, though, but rather the NPS’s attempt to close Mt. Vernon — which the federal government does not own.

Mt. Vernon media director Melissa Wood told the Blaze that there had been “a misunderstanding over the ownership of the spaces.”

And sadly this is nothing knew.  President Obama, his administration and their minions in Congress have been doing this from day one.  Whether it is banning children from touring the White House, even when private parties offered to pay to keep the tours open, to harassing average citizens, to targeting Tea Party Groups, Christian Organizations and any patriots who speak out against administration policies with IRS audits, holding up their tax status applications to harm their fundraising abilities or just calling them names and accusing them of untruths… like Harry Reid calling Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and other Republicans in both house of Congress Anarchists and much worse in an attempt to blame Democrat and administration failings on the GOP.  It is the Alinsky way! 

If you are not familiar with Saul Alinsky and his famous book in Progressive circles, Rules for Radicals (Kindle), do yourself an favor and read it.

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
