President Obama, the Office of Management and Budget, and National Park Service Director Jonathan Jarvis have been intentionally doing things during the partial government shutdown to punish the American people.
They have closed down and Barrycaded open air monuments and memorials such as the World War II memorial, the Lincoln memorial, and the Martin Luther King memorial for the first time ever during a government shutdown.
They have blocked off parts of the parking lot at George Washington's Mount Vernon estate even though it is privately owned and operated.
They have ordered states like Wisconsin to close parks (to which Gov. Scott Walker refused).
They have forced private businesses from North Carolina, to San Francisco, To Philadelphia to close.
They forced the privately operated Claude Moore Colonial Farm to close despite the fact that the farm hasn't been a part of the federal government since 1980.
All because, as one Park Ranger told the Washington Times, "We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting."
Every Park Ranger, or other government employee, should begin disregarding these orders by OMB, Jonathan Jarvis, and President Obama to punish the American people.
