He said he was going to do it, and he did. U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama said he refused to negotiate with Republican leadership and that he would allow the U.S. government to shut down instead, and it’s happened.
So, now the big question that everyone’s wondering about but no one will ask is, when does the looting start?
Looting, also referred to as sacking, plundering, despoiling, despoliation, and pillaging, is defined as the indiscriminate taking of goods by force as part of a military or political victory, or during a catastrophe, such as war, natural disaster, or rioting, which may result from the government shut down.
We can hope that the U.S. is the most civilized nation on earth, as she claims to be to the rest of the world, and that people will pull together if anything during these dark days, should they last. However, not too long ago, there was a certain hurricane in a certain city in the southern part of the country that may have been a very dark precursor to what is in store for America now that her government, once thought of as incompetent, has proven itself to be so.
