After reading/blogging about how Obama Democrats are denying death benefits to Gold Star families while forking over half a billion dollars to Big Bird … I really, really needed to see this! I hope it soothes your soul as well. My country may be going to Hell in a Democrat hand basket, but I’m going to Heaven forever and ever.
For the past 11 years, Glenn Helseth and his wife have owned and operated the Carrot Tree Kitchens Restaurant inside the historic Cole Digges House in Yorktown, Va.
Although the building is owned and operated by the National Park Service, the restaurant is a money-maker for the government. Glenn said, “I send them a check every month.”
He also pointed out that even though the building is technically closed, he’s still required to maintain insurance and utilities, make his rent payment AND pay for the building’s security system – the building the NPS kicked them out of.
At least 20 of Helseth’s longtime employees are facing unemployment. They can’t make rent and some are faced with choosing between buying food or buying medicine.
Glenn has decided enough is enough. He has reopened the Carrot Tree Kitchens Restaurant and is serving Brunswick stew, ham biscuits and carrot cake.
He said. “If that gets me put in jail, I’m going to jail. I don’t wish to take a stand against my government. I’ve always been very proud of my country. [But] I don’t agree with what’s happening. I can no longer abide by what’s happening.”
One legislator said, “I’ve never seen such small-minded, miserable behavior … and such a disregard of our responsibilities to the people. The American people could get better government out of monkey island in the local zoo than we’re getting … today.”
Sadly, it was a Democrat criticizing Republicans for holding their ground. Ann Coulter once said, “It’s easy to know what Democrats are doing. Just listen to what they accuse of us doing.”
That is so true! A majority of Americans do not want Obamacare.
A majority of us did not want it when it was shoved through a Democrat super-majority Congress and signed by a Democrat president. (Check the polls.)
We’ve fought it in the courts and screamed our heads off trying to get it re-evaluated. At this point, Republican legislators are doing the only thing available to them by refusing to fund it.
It’s the Democrats who are making this an all-or-shutdown thing.
Don’t believe me?
- Look up the VOTES for yourself. They’re all on-line. See URLs below.
- Read the GOP bills that Republicans have PASSED to FUND government services.
Think for yourself for a change and stop letting these Democrat bullies and their lapdog media heads USE you to push their agendas at our expense.
Veterans and their loved ones are invited to peacefully gather at a war memorial in protest over the absurd closing of open-air memorials and other insults to those who have given the most to protect and serve this great nation.
‘Gestapo’ tactics meet senior citizens at Yellowstone
October 8, 2013 by John Macone, Newburyport Daily News
NEWBURYPORT — Pat Vaillancourt went on a trip last week that was intended to showcase some of America’s greatest treasures.
Instead, the Salisbury resident said she and others on her tour bus witnessed an ugly spectacle that made her embarrassed, angry and heartbroken for her country.
Vaillancourt was one of thousands of people who found themselves in a national park as the federal government shutdown went into effect on Oct. 1.
For many hours her tour group, which included senior citizen visitors from Japan, Australia, Canada and the United States, were locked in a Yellowstone National Park hotel under armed guard.
The tourists were treated harshly by armed park employees, she said, so much so that some of the foreign tourists with limited English skills thought they were under arrest.
When finally allowed to leave, the bus was not allowed to halt at all along the 2.5-hour trip out of the park, not even to stop at private bathrooms that were open along the route.
