‘Gestapo’ Tactics Meet Senior Citizens & Foreign Tourists at Yellowstone National Park … Not Allowed to “Recreate” or Take Pics


Welcome to Barack Obama’s ‘Hope & Change’ … from the Imperial, community agitator, Divider in Chief.

What the hell is going on in this country? Here is just another example of Barack Obama trying to inflict as much pain as he can on ‘We the People’. Senior citizens and foreign tourists were met with ‘Gestapo’ tactics from armed park employees at  Yellowstone National Park. They were told that they were not allowed to “recreate” or take pictures by aggressive Brown Shirts armed park rangers. Hey America, how’s that ‘hopey-changey’ stuff working out for ya? As Weasel Zippers states, “the Gestapo has nothing on the Obama regime”.

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.

“We’ve become a country of fear, guns and control,” said Vaillancourt, who grew up in Lawrence. “It was like they brought out the armed forces. Nobody was saying, ‘we’re sorry,’ it was all like — ” as she clenched her fist and banged it against her forearm. [...]

The bus stopped along a road when a large herd of bison passed nearby, and seniors filed out to take photos. Almost immediately, an armed ranger came by and ordered them to get back in, saying they couldn’t “recreate.” The tour guide, who had paid a $300 fee the day before to bring the group into the park, argued that the seniors weren’t “recreating,” just taking photos.

“She responded and said, ‘Sir, you are recreating,’ and her tone became very aggressive,” Vaillancourt said.

This is still America, isn’t it?

      The republicans shut down the government, that’s what’s happening.
      SM: You might want to look into that.

      This is exactly the type of behavior by government employees towards the people that we see before the people decide they have had enough and take bold steps to put a stop to it.
