Ken, you (and several other vocal people on BPL) are so partisan it's not funny. That's why anything you post (MSN, oh, brother!), should be taken with a grain of salt and a heavy dose of skepticism. You do remember that it was your wonderful Obama administration that needlessly closed all those national parks and monuments (even the ones with no gates) out of pure spite and just because they could, right? It cost more money to add gates and security than just leaving the things open in the first place, not to mention all the veterans who were denied access to their memorials. Remember them? You know, the ones in the wheelchairs? Normandy couldn't stop them and neither did YOUR President and his "BARRYcaids". Oh, yeah...all those wonderful park rangers were "just doing their jobs"....seems to be the standard excuse for tyranny, from Nuremberg to the White House. So, Ken, you can bash on the GOP as being the root of all evil in our country, but you have really lost all credibility in my book because of your blind devotion solely to the Democrat party, when, in reality, most in both parties are the real problem we face.
Oh, and you conveniently side stepped the fact that it was Teddy Roosevelt, a..GASP!...Republican president, who created most of our national parks in the first place. What's next, denying that it was Lincoln (another...GASP! Republican) who freed the slaves and saved the REPUBLIC (yeah, it's a REPUBLIC, not a Democracy)?
