I don’t know who started it, but this trendy new word is only three days old:
1. A barrier (usually temporary) that exists for no reason. 2. A barrier erected for political reasons. “Dude, Obama barrycaded the park.”
“Hey, let’s put up some barrycades to keep those World War II veterans away from the open-air World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C., in order to try and score some cheap political points.”
Consider this: The most noticeable effect of the Obama-Reid Shutdown would not be noticeable at all if the Obama administration had not gone out of its way to punish regular citizens. They could have simply done nothing but Obama wants to “make it hurt.”
What an unbelievable dick!
So go forth and promulgate “barrycade” (#Barrycades).
