Democrats have accused Republicans, for decades, of wanting to kick grannies out of their homes. But the Obama government has actually done the deed.
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.”
Mrs. Spencer said that she had to make sure to get her husband’s walker on her trip into her own home, because if she forgot it, she wouldn’t be allowed back in. The National Park Service stands ready to keep her out of her own home.
Obama seems not to understand or care that he personally does not own an inch of federal land. The government belongs to the people, therefore the land belongs to us too.
Meanwhile, Obama and his family remain in their federally-owned home at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC. If the Spencers face eviction, why don’t the Obamas?
