This story from the Miami Herald would be too hard to believe, if it were not for the fact that the Obama administration hired Charlie Sheen to orchestrate a “winning” strategy for the government shutdown:
Charter guides received a message from the National Park Service this week informing them that they are not permitted to take clients fishing in Florida Bay until the feds get back to work. That means that more than 1,100 square miles of prime fishing is off limits between the southern tip of the mainland to the Keys until further notice.
The closing affects not only fishing guides, but anyone with a license to conduct business in the park, including tour operators and paddling guides — anyone with a Commercial Use Authorization permit, said Dan Kimball, superintendent of Everglades and Dry Tortugas national parks.
Biscayne National Park is also off limits. Enforcement rangers will be on duty, Kimball said.
So, effectively, the ocean is closed. As Mike Flynn points out, it will take more government resources to enforce such a shutdown than to keep the ocean open.
Face it, Obama is acting like a spoilt brat. There are no other words to describe him at this point. Just substitute “Obamacare” for “Britney”, and you can get a clear picture of Obama’s emotional state from the video below.
