    Shutdown over: What next?

    More from PhillipG

    Our ship is beginning to list.

    People discuss and debate for years and years over what it was that ACTUALLY sank the Titanic. Sure, most say it was an iceberg, but others to this day say things like, poor quality steel, or a fire that occurred prior to launch. Hell, there are even scientists that are now trying to blame the moon!
    But I say it was WATER, (and gravity) that sunk the Titanic!! LOL!! However, ultimately…who cares!!!??? It SUNK!!!!
    So do we have to wait until AFTER the United States of America SINKS TOO to figure out what went wrong!!!???? Because after she’s long gone laying at the bottom of historical mire most of the world probably won’t care WHY it happened, just that it DID!
    If you shoot me in rocket to a far off planet I’ll hop out and plant an AMERICAN flag to mark the new territory!! My AMERICAN pride will burst because I know what it feels like to BE an AMERICAN!! But if the United States of America is gone, we would all merely be left trying to describe to our children or their children what it was like to be an AMERICAN! To them it will be but a story.

    So GET IT TOGETHER!!! We are ALL on a sinking ship if this Washington DC @#$%$#! doesn’t STOP!!
    And believe me, she’s already beginning to list!!!
