Lake Mead Government shutdown??

I just read a report that the administration has evicted 60 families who's home is on Lake Mead residing on Federal land.

Any truth to this or experiences?

Looks like it is true. Maybe they should kick out the people living in the White House isn't that federal land?

Although Lake Mead is a National Recreation Area it is managed by the National Park Service so they completely shut it down. A protest is planned tonight by BoulderBoats by towing boats down the Vegas strip tonight starting at 6pm.

Perfect. If I was there, I would tow as well. At an extremely slow pace, with an extension long enough for my WS420 sq to reach the cab and my boats stereo as a PA

Looks like our annual October trip down to Overton/Echo Bay may not happen this year if the politicians can't get their act together.

I am incensed about all this. There's an Inn on the Blue Ridge Parkway... concession to Feds.. no fed dollars used... he got shut down - 100 non fed employees not paid... http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/n...h-inn/2923169/

The entire Fed gov't should be embarrassed about closing the open air memorial... when the honor flight arrived last week.

It's rediculous. Yet they get paid for doing nothing and don't have to adhere to the policies they think are so great for the rest of us.

Just like the 50 useless aldermen of the fine City of Chicago

Hey Ward 39 is doing really well.

Just kidding.

Can anyone verify that military commissary and PX stores will be reopening on Monday. I did see that some in the Hampton Roads area will be open on Monday.
