More Obama administration shutdown theater:
- Barricading wheelchair ramps in Washington DC.
- Removing handles from water fountains on trails.
- Illegally closing Alaskan lands.
The pictures of barricaded wheelchair ramps are really quite astonishing. We used to think that “shutting down the government” meant that the government would not have the money to deliver public services. But now that the Obama administration is spending money they don’t have in order to hurt people, the government is revealed as just an extortion racket: if you don’t keep the protection money flowing, they will screw you up. “Nice wheelchair ramp. It’d be a shame if something happened to it.”
