whats more fun than a mindbogglingly huge debt? the news you might not be able to pay it back!
out of the gate today we'll examine the fact that we're boned...completely, utterly boned and here's why:
"Despite improvement in both the fiscal year 2006 reported net operating cost and the cash-based budget deficit, the U.S. government's total reported liabilities, net social insurance commitments, and other fiscal exposures continue to grow and now total approximately $50 trillion, representing approximately four times the Nation's total output (GDP) in fiscal year 2006, up from about $20 trillion, or two times GDP in fiscal year 2000."
wow, I wonder, what could have possibly happened between 2000 and 2006? <strokes chin and muses> "gee, that's a tough one mister, can I still have $50 so I can buy an apple core for my family? and if you have a stack of ones on you we could really use that for our fire." and if that isn't bad enough, oil is now starting the trend to be traded on the euro instead of the dollar. I can't begin to tell you how bad this can become, but here's a primer.
simple solution? kill the old people and nuke the banks carrying our debt. PROBLEM SOLVED! :D
