Obama, God of the Sea, Closes the Ocean

The Ocean is Now Closed
Bow and Pray to the God-King Obama
for this horror to end.

By order of Obama, God of the Sea, the National Park Service closed the ocean to both mortal fishermen and boat captains alike.

Due to the Harry Reid shutdown, fishing boats are prohibited from taking anglers into 1,100 square miles of open ocean off Florida.

Fishing in the ocean at Biscayne National Park is also prohibited.

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 reports the Miami Herald.

This is governing by temper-tantrum. It is on par with the government's ham-fisted attempts to close the DC WWII Memorial, an open-air public monument that is normally accessible 24 hours a day. By accessible I mean, you walk up to it. When you have finished reflecting, you then walk away from it.

At least that Memorial is an actual structure, with some kind of perimeter that can be fenced off.

Florida Bay is the ocean. How, pray tell, do you "close" 1,100 square miles of ocean? Why would one even need to do so?

Apparently, according to an anonymous Park Service ranger, “We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting.”

Centuries ago, King Canute famously failed to command the ocean tide to stop. His display was actually a means to educate his subjects on the limits of royal power. Today, however, our God-King actually believes he has the power to control the oceans.
