U.S. Offers Wind Industry Permits For Eagle Deaths In Effort To Balance Costs Of Renewable Energy

“If you are talking recently, you are mistaken. From "The Outer Banks Voice":

http://outerbanksvoice.com/2013/10/03/shutdown-leaves-cape-hatteras-seashore-anglers-high-and-dry/

The Park Service was forced to close Cape Hatteras National Seashore, Wright Brothers National Memorial and Fort Raleigh National Historic Site because Congress could not agree on keeping most government services funded.

The closing of Cape Hatteras National Seashore also means the Oregon Inlet Fishing Center and Avon Pier, along with several businesses that rent horses for riding on the beach, must cease their “concession” operations.

Although the business themselves may own the buildings and inventory inside them, they are located on National Park Service land.

A skeleton crew of 13 staff members, including eight law enforcement Park Rangers, will available to cover all three Outer Banks Group parks, Holda said, so they have to close the concessions because of potential safety issues.

Similar situations are happening at National Parks across the country, such as the Blue Ridge Parkway, which remains open to traffic, but adjacent facilities such as visitors centers and campground, along with privately operated lodges, restaurants and attractions on the popular road in the North Carolina and Virginia mountains closed their doors this week.

The operators of the Pisgah Inn on the Blue Ridge Parkway attempted to defy the closure order, however, even though the Park Service owns the land and buildings.”

“Nope, prior it was closed due to the Bird that nest on the dunes. Totaly different subject. Also, the closing of the seashore did not equate to not being able to go their or use the ocean.”

“I'm not going to say "splitting hairs" (numerous polls show varying numbers regarding approval ratings; under 40% is deplorable any way you slice it), simply because the point of my statement is that Obama duped us. He has the media and Hollywood on his side. STILL at 39%. The DNC is acting like Cheney/Bush GOP days. That's all I was saying.”

“you are right. You should only have to buy if you want any form of health care. If you don't buy, then follow the current plan and wind up in the gutter. I guess if the Government will fine you if you don't pay for guaranteed care, then you can't make them pay to help you if you don't contribute, emergency rooms can just start denying you...

I guess you can't make a hospital or anyone else pay for your treatment and you will get none.”
