The financially strapped US government have decided that the misery they and their bankers caused has nothing to do with them and decided to carry on just like they did before the crisis started; living a life of audacious decadence.
The US government's justice dept. speaker gave the following statement after revealing that they had just spent $16 dollars on a single muffin, here it is:
"We, in the US government deserve only the best, $8 dollar cups of coffee and $16 muffins so sod the poor, wretched, homeless, unemployed and the fatties!"
His statement caused downtown riots in Washington and other cities with looters raiding muffin shops and looting every muffin in sight.
And this statement also reveals the typical US philosophy about life in the US and the main reason why the world is crumbling, because they have exported their disease all across the world.
The UK are following suit (as they always do) and David Cameron has ordered Starbucks special coffees for 8 quid and jammy doughnuts for 16 quid.
Rioters in London are preparing to loot all jammy doughnut bakers and Starbuck cafés because they are demanding a "piece of the cake too"!
