In a stunning move, the federal government threw people out of their homes on Lake Mead. A popular place to live on a boat, the federal government shut down access to the lake during the federal shutdown. According to  Rob Richardson at OffGrid Surival’s website, the order has had people who live on the Lake Mead scrambling to find another place  to go. People pay monthly fees to moor their boats on the lake. For many who live on the lake,  there house boat is their only home. Some have lived on the lake for as long as 20 years.

Boat stuck on dock Lake Mead

The National Park Service even pulled the dock so that people who did not comply were stranded. Those who were at the dock did not have enough water to pull their boat out of the water to comply. There appears to be no refund on the fees paid by boat owners either.

This follows on the heals of reports of capricious and arbitrary tactics on the part of the National Park Service reported in the Washington Times.  In that report, Wesley Pruden, former editor of the Washington Times,  published an interview with a National Park Service Ranger that said

“It’s a cheap way to deal with the situation,” an angry Park Service ranger in Washington says of the harassment. “We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting.”

While it is easy to argue that this is being done in an arbitrary fashion, a closer analysis shows that the Park Service is actually being very systematic and thorough. They appear to be going into every red state they can to punish the people who live there. Earlier, Free Patriot reported that Obama has shut down, or attempted to shut down several places. Among those include George Washington’shome Mount Vernon which is privately owned,  the Atlantic OceanMount Rushmore, among other places.

This is just one more example of the Obama Administration’s efforts to inflict pain on the American people.
