King Obama The First Closes The Oceans

Like King Canute before him, but with even less modesty and more vanity, King Obama believes he can control the oceans.

Breitbart: Feds Try to Close the OCEAN Because of Shutdown
Just before the weekend, the National Park Service informed charter boat captains in Florida that the Florida Bay was "closed" due to the shutdown. Until government funding is restored, the fishing boats are prohibited from taking anglers into 1,100 square-miles of open ocean. Fishing is also prohibited at Biscayne National Park during the shutdown. 
The Park Service will also have rangers on duty to police the ban... of access to an ocean. The government will probably use more personnel and spend more resources to attempt to close the ocean, than it would in its normal course of business.
Now, I know the President thinks he can do anything. After all, it was he that publicly proclaimed that his very election was "the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow".  But, closing access to an entire expanse of the ocean in a bit of petulance while trying to inflict as much pain as possible over the shutdown is really a bit much.

Whoever comes up with these ideas like shutting down open air monuments and ocean access may think of themselves as some kind of evil genius, but he sure is coming across more like a demented child having a tantrum. 

The Obama's administrations actions during this shutdown have skipped right past the tragedy and gone straight to farce.
