Because he wanted to go, I took Murphy to Harpers Ferry National Park, which is nominally closed, not by an act of Congress but per the edict of Barry Obama, the man-child tyrant who shall by known forevermore as "President Stompy-Feet" for his shameless attempt to get his way by "making life as difficult as possible" for as many Americans as he can.
So Murphy and I stopped by one of the "closed" parks--a park which is normally unstaffed for the most part anyway. And look what we find there: orange cones blocking the trails.
And he did.
And a nice day was had by all--us and numerous other scofflaws who ignored the Barry-cades.
Barack Obama says: "You cannot enjoy this view!"
