Encountering Tyranny at Valley Forge


Obama’s shutdown gambit has provided plenty of poignant symbolism, if only we had a responsible media to highlight it appropriately. Yet another example — Valley Forge, where George Washington and his troops endured extreme hardship while fighting for the apparently lost cause of American liberty:

A marathoner says he was fined $100 for running in Valley Forge National Historical Park during the government shutdown.

John Bell, 56, said he parked his car on Sunday in a remote parking lot, not one blocked by a barrier. Bell, of Chadds Ford, said two rangers were waiting with their car lights flashing when he returned.

Any bureaucrats want to explain how paying people to stake out parked cars so as to issue $100 fines for jogging saves the government money? Given all the pricey bennies received by federal employees, I doubt this is profitable.

On the positive side, if Washington and his men could weather winter at Valley Forge and go on to turn the Revolutionary War around, we ought to be able to endure a few more years of Obama.
