The country is going under. All appears lost. And the GOP fumbles, retreats and apologizes. It’s tragic, but it’s now clear to see: One party is filled with frauds, crooks, socialists and out-and-out communists out to bankrupt the U.S. economy, wreck capitalism and destroy America. And the other party is filled with weak-willed cowards who are either scared of their own shadow, in cahoots with Obama, or suffer from the Stockholm Syndrome.

Before you compose an angry email to Mr. Livingston demanding I be consigned to an eternity of serving as Oprah Winfrey’s towel boy, allow me to elaborate.
The CEO of the Food Bank for New York City, reportedly the Nation’s largest food outreach program, is insinuating that riots could erupt if program cuts slated to kick in this weekend are allowed to take effect.
