Obama’s Park Services Kick Property Owners out of Homes until Shutdown Ends

Las Vegas, Nevda


Joyce Spencer is 77-years-old and her husband Ralph is 80. They’ve been spending most of their time in the family ice cream store since going home isn’t an option.

The Spencers never expected to be forced out of their Lake Mead home, which they’ve owned since the 70s, but on Thursday, a park ranger said they had 24 hours to get out.

“I had to go to town today and buy Ralph undershirts and jeans because I forgot his pants,” Joyce Spencer told Action News.

The Stewart’s Point home sits on federal land, so even though the Spencers own their cabin outright, they’re not allowed in until the government reopens.

So why can’t they return to the home they own? According to Spencer, she was told by Park Services they couldn’t re-enter because services could not be provided. Anyone else seeing a real problem with that excuse? Why do Parks services need to be on hand for these people to live in their homes? In addition, I ask, why are these people building on “federal land”? That seems downright silly to me.

According to a statement that was issued to KTNV, Park officials said that owners (apparently that doesn’t mean anything) can only go to their homes to retrieve belongings, but “Unfortunately overnight stays are not permitted until a budget is passed and the park can reopen.”

Does that clear up anything for anyone else? It doesn’t for me. In fact, it makes their claim even more ridiculous. In other words, they will allow people in their homes to get their belongings, even though they are not “providing services,” but they won’t let them spend the night.

The Spencers are just one family who has been forced to find alternate places to live because of the Marxist-in-chief’s tyrannical orders, which in my opinion, should be summarily ignored by the Parks Services in this matter.

In either case, the Spencers believe as I do, it’s their property, and they should be allowed in whether the government shutdown is going on or not. It should not even be an issue here.

I’ll also add this little note. The federal government controls far too much land in the United States. It has absolutely no need to own the amount of land it does. This is just one instance among many, including trying to control who goes in an 1,100 square mile section of ocean off the Florida coast, in which the federal government is demonstrating tyranny.
