Glenn Helseth, owner of Carrot Tree Kitchens Restaurant in historic Yorktown, is refusing Obama’s order to close. 232 years ago, the colonists fought and won against tyranny on these very same grounds. Helseth would like to make it two for two, as the Obama administration is trying to make government closing as painful as possible, even resorting to closing the Atlantic Ocean and private businesses.
After the government closed down, he received a call giving him 3 hours to shutter his business. He was later given a 5 day stay and did in fact close his restaurant. Then it dawned on him that he had a contract and they weren’t paying him, he was paying them.
