Ben Swann: Feds Now Blocking Children From Going To School And Families From Visiting Dead Relatives

It is perhaps worth mentioning that when government builds the roads- it also gets to close them whenever it feels like it (just because). The latest round of political theater from the Obama administration has hit in the Great Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee. In an attempt to make residents of Tennessee suffer, the only safe road for school buses to travel on has been shut down. Furthermore, the feds have stepped in and shut down family cemeteries no longer allowing living relatives to visit their deceased loved ones.
The Great Smoky Mountains is one of the top tourist destinations in America. Blount County, Tennessee, a small mountain community, lays within the Great Smoky Mountains. The government shut down the park, thus cutting off the revenue stream for the county. It has been verified that the feds also shut down the Foothills Parkway, which is the main travel route for school buses in the community. Other alternative routes through the mountains are at extremely dangerous elevations with crumbling roads through the mountains’ cliffs. In fact, a school bus cannot even travel on the alternative roads. Regardless of the danger, the feds came through and shut down the road during school hours. This forced schools scrabbling to find a way to get children home safely.
Now, the schools are no longer running buses for the safety of children, and parents are being forced to take their kids up and down the treacherous alternative routes.
