Working through my ignorance with your help.
Worse than that, they paid someone to take their web site down. That's just pique.
That's exactly what I was thinking. They made the extra effort to screw the rest of us out of learning about the parks. Greasy weasels.
But of course it's extortion. That's what government shutdowns are all about. Once you start the game of "give me what I want, or I kick the board over", it just becomes a question of who can come up with the best threats. And how effectively you can cast the blame onto your opponents. On the plus side, the last time we had a big shutdown, after everybody involved finished wiping the egg off their faces they finally buckled down and made the books balance for once. Perhaps it will work out that way this time, too.
Maybe if you people had done your research, you would realize that the National Park Service was required by law to close the parks and take down its websites. All government website are operated by government employees- no one outside was 'paid' to take down their websites. Do you really think that the 21,000 NPS employees WANT to be furloughed? Do you think that they WANT to 'screw the rest of us out of learning about the parks'? Your lawmakers are the 'Greasy Weasels' here, not the NPS. Get a clue.
Oh please. Stop with the finger pointing and gasping about the websites. It was an Administration decision. And like anyone 6 months from now was going to call in the IG to find out why the Pinnacles website wasn't reduced to an Angelfire site with broken images.
So why did they corner off the parking lot? We have a city NPS, just close the office and canal tours. They didn't have to go out of the way. They're closed, not quarantined.
BTW, other Anonymous (not me, Lee, occasional Anonymous here), seventeen years ago, there wasn't the proliferation of barricades at OPEN AIR "parks." Addionally, seventeen Yeats ago, there was some parks functioning at a certain level. Also, LEAVING websites a lone involves NOTHING. Clearly, from the message, the servers are still up and running. Why not just leave them running normal?
