DIMNESS IN THE MURK

Obama has never been asked to explain why he ordered the National Park Service and national police to bar the citizens from their parks during his last budget debate with Congress. The press has never once asked him why he closed all traffic lanes and pedestrian paths into Yellowstone, Yosemite, Mount Vernon or a 401 other parks.

Isn't it odd that all the press wants to hear from Christie is how one of his aids tied up traffic on one bridge in New Jersey for a couple of days? Do you care about that? I don't either.

I think the most egregious aspect of the professional news class in this country is their transparent lack of shame at being tools of deception wielded by the most mediocre people in society.

Yesterday, as the U.S. government shut down, all 401 of our national parks closed their gates. The campers and visitors inside were given two days to leave. It was no great surprise.

If one were to read Ken's little piece one would walk away consumed with wonder at how the Federal Government saved any money by closing the parks (which generate actual revenue) while at the same time mobilizing thousands of guards to patrol them and keep the citizens out.
The whole press frenzy about the bridge in New Jersey is beyond farce.

    1. The funny thing is how nobody seems to notice major cities slipping into the dark ages here in America. Nobody cares. Nobody extrapolates the trends and sees that what failed in those places will fail everywhere it is done.
