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.
Park officials said property owners can visit only to retrieve belongings; they sent Action News a statement which reads in part, “Unfortunately overnight stays are not permitted until a budget is passed and the park can reopen.”
Yeah, and also “unfortunately,” soulless vampires like those at the Park Service who are perfectly willing to obey blatantly immoral orders from their masters on high are what most of this monstrous, abominable government is comprised of. Plenty more at Twitchy, including this gem:
If senior citizens in private homes on fed lands are thrown out of homes, then people in taxpayer owned homes should leave too.
Absolutely–like, for starters, Il Douche himself. But then, he would have been thrown out of the executive mansion of any self-respecting nation a long time ago.
Y’know, we’ve all been worrying ourselves about the increasing potential for violent uprising, and how to know when (or if) the shooting ought to start. When the Dictator In Chief is chucking old folks out of their homes for no purpose other than indulging in some pointless political theater, and his sick-fuck minions are going cheerfully along with it with nary a visible qualm, I’d say the writing’s pretty much on the wall.
