Understanding the estimate of the governments debt of 12 trillion dollars.
This week, the United States’ national debt is expected to reach a record-breaking $12 trillion. And yesterday, the people of this country were reminded of how much we owe, but I do not or cannot begin to understand the amount of a trillion dollars. The following thread gave me a better understanding of a trillion, if you are murky concerning that sum of money, I suggest you use the following thread to find out.

  • yeah anon...but he's not. He is going to half ass it. Just like everything else. Just enough involvement to F**** it up but not enough to be directly held liable. Thats how he rolls. Like this Afghanistan thing. I think McCrystal (sp?) came out the way he did because he didnt want to be blamed when the Sh*t hits the fan. He wanted people to know HE did HIS job.

  • I vote we just put all of DC on a 6 month (at least) furlough. They need to go back home and take in a large dose of reality.

  • Why yourspecialkid? They work about 3 days per week, but they did vote today to increase the Congressional operating budget. They are doing a fine job (said in my best Forrest Gump voice).
