Sunday feel good. Old folks forced out if home by Obama park thugs
 
Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) — The government shutdown is being felt close to home for some locals. They say they’re being forced out of private homes on Lake Mead because they sit on federal land.

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.”

Joyce Spencer said she’s alright in the meantime, staying with nearby family, but the move was a lot to handle as a senior citizen.

“I had to be sure and get his walker and his scooter that he has to go in,” Spencer said. “We’re not hurt in any way except it might cost me if I have to go buy more pants.”

The Lake Mead properties are considered vacation homes; one of the lease requirements to own a plot is people must have an alternative residence.

Regardless, the Spencers said it’s their property and they should be allowed in, shutdown or not.

Oh what a crock of shit. I'd be starting a revolution over that crap.

Someone had better reign this tyrant in fast, because this is just getting more and more out of control.

Well at least it isn't the TSA assaulting granny/gramps this time.

A person would have to be a colossal moron to build a house on land that they don't own.


It's is bullshit that the government is going full-retard on shutting down things just to stick it to citizens, though.

Were they forced out during any of the previous shutdowns?

Bill Parcells 10-06-2013 07:44 AM

How much is it costing the US Govt to enforce all of these stupid things? is anybody keeping count?

Love the smell of dictatorship in the morning.

If there's one thing the government can do, it's to follow rules.

That is a very good question. It just seems odd that there are all these reports for this shutdown. It appears on the surface anyway that there is an effort to make this as painful as possible. I have not followed shutdowns that closely so maybe this stuff happens every time~

So you'd start a revolution over a couple old folks, but don't mind the 15 million illegal aliens allowed to continue to live in the USA. Interesting.

He is obviously confused. He seems to think I was saying I would start a revolution over this couple being removed from their home. I would start a revolution overt he government attempting to remove ME from MY home.

How illegal immigration fits into this I am still trying to figure out.
