What does this mean?

I am going to post Graphs below...I am a visual person, so when someone says 32% of bunnies like corn and 34% like celery with 100 more numbers behind it I get lost. I like graphs because I can SEE what it looks like.

I want to know... What does this mean for our country?

  • It looks like Denmark is a good place to live? LOL. No..but that is scary,isn't it. It would be a good thing to track that deficit and find out how many years we have been #1 on the Debt list,wouldn't it?

  • It means that the news stories on Fox News about world financial groups deciding to get out of owning US dollars is true.

    No investor in their right mind would continue to hold stock in a company (US papermoney) that is so in debt that its prosperity can only go down.

  • Happy all those US Corps move their HQs off shore and employee cheap, foreign labor?
    Happy that US jobs are eliminated when Corps move offshore and use foreign, cheap labor, leading to the demise of a large socioeconomic group?
    Glad all those cheap items that are massed produced overseas, by those exploited workers are now imported to the US for ppl here, who no longer have jobs, are expected to buy?
    Happy that this all leads to further trade deficits?
    Happy that our Country is screwed out of loads of corp tax dollars when these Corps move to low or No tax burden countries?
    Happy our leaders continue to accept hefty campaign donations from these tax evading, job eliminating, foreign worker exploiting companies?
