As seen on the NBC Nightly News on 3 Oct, Representative Randy Neugebaum (R, Texas), after having voted with his party to shut down the government...is then rude and argumentative with a National Park Service ranger who is enforcing a closure in the DC area.

The arrogance, the hypocrisy, the unapologetic nature of this joker's attitude simply defy belief.
As I continually say, I gotta get out more on the trails and clear my head. The bride and I were up on the Appalachian Trail yesterday with some friends to scope out Bailey Spring a couple miles inside the PA border (it is barely running due to no rain to speak of for the past 6 weeks).
I am not certain whether the AT is an outright Federal corridor or some type of public-private joint ownership deal, but there was no evidence of closure. Though as a practical matter, it'd be absolutely unenforceable.
