Gov’t Thugs Forcing Hotel To Close During Shutdown – Business Owner Stands Defiant! (VIDEO)
[link to thelibertarianrepublic.com]

MOUNT PISGAH, N.C. – National Park Service rangers blocked the entrance to Pisgah Inn on the Blue Ridge Parkway southwest of Asheville, N.C. The company that runs the facility on federal-leased land had defied the government’s shutdown order before police blockaded his small business. Bruce O’Connell is the owner of the establishment, who is trying to do business in the height of tourist season while the federal government is forcing nationwide shutdowns of parks and services. At first he planned on acquiescing to government demands to close shop, but he then decided on Thursday to reopen in defiance of shutdown orders. It didn’t take long before the cops moved in.

Actually, the Parkway is NOT shut down,
just the building such as information centers & bathrooms. This story stinks to the high Heavens -
the Inn is operated privately on leased property.
The Fed Gvmt may own the property,
but they do not own nor operate the business.
How much do you wanna bet
they still demand his lease payment?

I hope they plan to cover his lost revenue! This is nonsense.
A flag flown upside down is a symbol of a country in distress. As a result of the many traitors and enemies inside our own government and the many unconstitutional acts, legislation and atrocities passed and/or committed against our lives, liberty and property, as well as a reckless foreign policy meant to enrich and empower an already wealthy group of 'elites' while wreaking havoc around the globe and committing atrocities against large numbers of innocent peoples in the name of 'spreading democracy', the United States is no longer a free country and the lives of its citizens as well as the lives of our brothers and sisters around the globe, are in dire danger and distress.

Sad. His stand didn't last long.

Blue Ridge lodge relents on shutdown order

ASHEVILLE, N.C. -- A day after vowing to defy a National Parks Service mandate to shut down, the Pisgah Inn changed course Thursday.

The lodge, which operates in a building and on land owned by the park service along the Blue Ridge Parkway, will close because of the federal government shutdown, general manager Rob Miller said.

He leases the land from the government. Doesn't that lease come with the right to operate his business according to the rules during the term of the lease?

He should ask in court for a refund of that part of the lease, plus his economic loss he incurred. This is stupid. It costs extra money for the Federal cops to make sure this guy doesn't open, saves us nothing.
