Outrage: Government Forces Homeowners To Leave Private Residences Amid Shutdown
October 7th, 2013
With America having hit its debt ceiling yet again, the Executive Branch has determined that a closure of certain services is necessary to keep the country running efficiently. The ocean, for example, has been closed because apparently beaches and water can’t operate without government intervention. The Amber Alert web site, which helps police and parents locate missing children, has been shutdown due to lack of funds. And, hundreds of thousands of government workers have been furloughed without pay. They’ve even gone so far as to remove well pumps along a 184 mile trail from Washington D.C. to Pittsburgh, so that anyone who dares to use it will have no water to drink.
But there is no need to worry. Essential government operations are still very much actively working. The policing apparatus around the nation, especially on Federal lands, has been beefed up to ensure no one is violating the closures. Congress is still being paid by taxpayers, so they can continue to pass laws unabated. And, Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move web site remains operational, so we can eat healthy, and enjoy some song and dance while we do it.
The examples of President Obama’s hypocrisy are outrageous, and perhaps none more so than the experience of Joyce Spencer and sixty of her fellow neighbors who have homes on Lake Mead, which is a designated National Recreation Area.
While President Obama and his family continue to experience the luxurious benefits of living off the American taxpayer on federally designated lands, the Spencers have been kicked out of their homes by force.
