During the past week, nothing seemed to be more shocking and vile than the Park Ranger's statement to The Washington Times they are being ordered to “make life difficult” during the government shutdown”. What American president in our lifetime has wanted to inflict pain upon Americans? None. This is something that Soviet Dictator Josef Stalin, a Nobel Peace prize winner, would do....punish those who disagreed with him.
Republicans are asking for more time to examine Obamacare. Americans were told it would be cheaper; it isn't. Americans were told they could keep their insurance; they can't. Americans were told they can keep their doctor; that's not true. Before funding it, let's see what else is in it? Democrats want to fund all of the budget or nothing, and the Republicans want to negotiate. In America, we negotiate, but at this point, the President and Harry Reid refuse. We're at a standstill.
Instead of seeking to sort out a solution, Obama has double-downed on Americans, making them suffer as much as possible. Sadistic, isn't it? Much effort went into making Americans suffer.
Residents of Lake Mead, some in their seventies, who own their own homes were given 24 hours to leave because their homes are on federal land.
On Tuesday, October 1, the National Park Service put up barricades around the open-air memorial in Washington, D.C. that is normally accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week, even when Park Service personnel are not there. Police threatened to arrest visiting veterans, who came to Washington as part of Honor Flight, a non-profit that gives veterans free transportation so they can see war memorials.
The wrath of Barack even touched down on the beach of Normandy. According to the New York Post, tourists travelling to Omaha Beach to pay their respects to the 9,387 military dead at the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial will find it closed, a victim of the U.S. government’s partial shutdown.
The site overlooking the D-Day invasion beaches is one of 24 U.S. military cemeteries overseas, maintained by the American Battle Monuments Commission, that have closed to visitors since Monday. Ten more cemeteries in France, as well as others in various European countries as well as Mexico, Panama, Tunisia and the Philippines, will remain closed for the duration of the shutdown.
This type of aggression is reminiscent of Stalin. Under Josef Stalin, the refusal of the state to tolerate even indifference to its aims gave rise to a new term -- “totalitarianism” -- to describe a regime whose efforts were to control its population. Stalin gave voice to this repressive mentality when he stated, “Ideas are more powerful than guns. We would not let our enemies have guns, why should we let them have ideas?” Sound familiar?
