    the fellow is a fool
    he should read his lease agreement
    and if there is no provision for such closure (i would bet there is) he could sue for the feds violating the terms of the contract causing him loss of income and profits. he would then be able to make out like a bandit
    suspect he is a teabagger, wanting to impose his personal views in the media
    That's your defense?

    Hell, maybe you should advocate for us all staying home because roads are a public good and we're violating the spirit of the shutdown because the government "owns the roads".

    if the property owner tells you to close the property, close the property
    then recover what you would have earned thru the courts
    winning a contract dispute with the federal government is always an enriching proposition
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    FWIW - here are some photos showing them doing it. Took 7 personnel, a giant forklift, and a bunch of rented barricades to enclose the open-air monument.

    Meanwhile, across the lawn, the WWI memorial remains open - probably because all those vets have since passed.

    So a landlord could come into a tenant's apartment anytime for any reason. Nice.

    no. the landlord could tell the tenant to vacate
    and the tenant would have to vacate
    and then seek compensation via the courts

    Actually, no he cannot. It's called breach of contract.

    He could take them to court, but there would be extensive punitive penalties because of damages.

    It's not in the government's best interest to argue this. Of course, they've never been models of efficiency or sense, nor have people who blindly support it.

    appears you now agree with me

    then seek compensation thru the courts

    Yes, but that is not what is happening here...If it is true that the government leases the building to the business owner, then I don't think they can tell him to close his business....They may own the building, but he owns the business. Maybe he should tell them to evict, that'll take at least 30 days, and by that time this will be over.

    Call me crazy, but "not doing something stupid to begin with" seems like a better solution.
