So, I don’t know if you’ve heard, but for the third time this year, the United States is on the verge of a government shutdown. The THIRD time. This time, the GOP is demanding $1.6 billion dollars in spending cuts in order to supply disaster relief funds to victims of Hurricane Irene. I’ll let that one sink in for a moment.
It’s times like these, I really begin to wonder if I’m the only sane person when I look at this and think that it sounds like, oh I don’t know, extortion. Logically, you’d think there would be some backlash for this, but I guess not. The more I watch these threats of a government shutdown, the more and more I think of Diddy.
