I was going to point out the inequity of allowing Democrat lawmakers to use the national mall for a political rally while Japanese tourists are being intimidated in Yellowstone, but as most of you know, there is one steadfast rule at Are We Lumberjacks: Never criticize any event or activity that ends with the arrest of Charles Rangel. It's just an extension of the alls-well-that-ends-well philosophy.
About Yellowstone, though:
“They looked like Hulk Hogans, armed. They told us you can’t go outside,” she said. “Some of the Asians who were on the tour said, ‘Oh my God, are we under arrest?’ They felt like they were criminals.”I mean, come on. Someone walking on the Mall, or stopping at a scenic overlook, costs the government zero dollars. And it actually costs money to try to prevent such activities. So why are we spending money on thuggery in the middle of a government shutdown?
