Dude, you're in all these threads. The point people are trying to make is that the government is spending more money to shutdown these parks than they did to keep them open. It the government were completely shutdown than I should be able to go take a shite on Abe Lincoln's lap if I wanted to becuase nobody would be there to stop me.

I know. I am failing my fellow TD.com poster. I'm only tyring to enlighten.

No. They're trying to suggest that a lot of the services they like (that have been shut down) were done so because of political motives. This is simply not the case. Or at least nobody has shown me that this is the case. So far we have story from FreeBeacon.com that "speculates" that it was politically motivated, and we have LSURussain showing that the WW2 monument was built by private funds - but he has no information on ongoing budgets for securing, servicing, insuring, etc. the monument.

Finally: If these are truly private, how is it that Obama CAN shut them down? He has no authority to shut down private entities. You can't have it both ways.

What? All the National Parks are closed as far as I know. Some are "privately-funded" but nobody has done any sort of reporting/research to confirm that there is NO government involvement in any way shape or form.


People have posted links. You've either not looked at them or rejected them as rubbish. We know that privately funded and maintained parks on public have been shut down.

While it is speculation that these closures are politically motivated, it's not unreasonable speculation.

The Obama Administration is ordering hundreds of parks that sit on federal land to close amid the government shutdown -- even though they don't use any government funding.
quote:


Operators of Claude Moore Colonial Farm in Virginia, for example, say they were shocked when the National Park Service ordered their park be shut. That's because it's been 80% funded by a local non-profit for years, which agreed to take over 100% of the costs of the facility as of October 1. Still, the National Park Service spent taxpayer money to erect barricades around the park and evict everyone from the farm this week.

From Fox article

And with regard to the "agreeing to cover cost as of Oct 1". Governments aren't nimble enough to say "Ok - you take over payments from here". And you know that.

The management companies pay the National Park Service out of the funds they generate from operating the thousands of campgrounds.

They are affiliated with the National Park Service (which in comprised at least in part by unessential workers)

Daily Caller
I have already addressed this. "Built almost entirely by private funds" does not mean there isn't some sort of ongoing government involvement to secure, service, etc.

Shutdown Bullies


BUT

Let's cut to the chase: If these are truly private - and have no government involvement, how is Obama closing them? He has no authority. ??

That's speculation on your part.

Perhaps you should post a link or an article that supports this assumption.

but they're nimble enough to have signs printed saying "closed due to government shutdown" by dawn just hours after the shutdown becomes a certainty.

Private funding to maintain, and being public property are two separate things. I guess you're not quite as smart as you think you are. OR you're so wrapped up in dishonesty, you think others will be fooled by it.

How can Obama close these parks if they are truly private? He has no authority.

Why would you expect the same people who use the IRS for political reasons, and the same people who use the NSA for political reasons not to be closing parks for political reasons?

Our fearless leader is a political animal The only thing he does well is campaign. The only thing his staff does well is politics.

Consequently, everything from this administration is done to win elections. The sooner more people realize that the better off we will be as a country.

Reid said it best. (Paraphrasing) Who cares about cancer victims when we can use the shutdown for our advantage. That comes straight from the top. Believe it.

Your questions have been answered several times in the various threads where you continue to worship government and Obama. You just continue to ignore the answers.

The moral and intellectual bankruptcy of the Liberal Trash in this country is breath-taking. The Beggar Class has given us a two-term abortion that is destroying the country.

1. it's privately-provided to the public, not just "private"

2. is that a serious question? he can close it by having cop types fence it off and prevent folks from going under threat of arrest. exactly as is being done!
