Talk about stupid.
The question was; "what does everyone think is really

And even better question, why do we even have a
You want to talk about Obama????
According to the Treasury Department tables, the
increase in our debt for fiscal year 2009 was 1.885
trillion dollars. Increase for 2010 is another 1.65
trillion, making the 2 year total an increase of 3.53
billion. That is an increase in our nation's
TOTAL DEBT of about 35% - in just

we try to change it."

1-9-09 Barak Obama said "expect trillion dollar deficits
to be the reality for years to come". Unfortunately he
wasn't predicting the inevitable result of a fiscal
year's recession-caused reduction of revenue, but
rather his promise to spend our way into them.
The reason it is called the "Public Debt" is because,
while the government runs it up, it is American citizens
that owe it. It is an impossibility that these bills will
EVER be paid, let alone, by the generation that is
generating them. Transparently fraudulent, the so-
called "stimulus" plan only spends a small fraction of
the funds any fiscal year. This bill should be dubbed
The Communizing of America Bill. Once foreign lenders
are finally convinced America will NEVER be able to
repay the money we owe, expect interest rates to
sky rocket to levels we experienced under Jimmy
Carter and the last all Democrat administration.
They will likely go even higher, to failed banana
I wouldn't be so pissed if it were just me getting
screwed but this is about my children and my
grandchildren being sold into slavery and I don't
appreciate it one bit and as a matter of fact am
damned mad about it.
No it isn't just Obama, it's a lot of stupid people
that make excuses for him and run around like
rats in a maze looking for the way out when
there is none also.

Your chart is a bit misleading.
To service the debt (not pay down, just pay the
interest), in fiscal 2010 we payed over $400 million,
that is about $1,300 for every man woman and child
in the USA. Since half pay no taxes that doubles it
to $2,600 just to stay afloat. Do you think you
would rather have that money in your pocket or
would you rather donate it to international financiers,
many of whom spend vast amounts to destroy the
country your forefathers fought and died to leave
And that is with interest rates a record lows, what
if the interest rates skyrocket like they did when

I thought we would never have a president in my
life time any sorrier than Jimmy Carter, I was
mistaken, we have one now.
"Whenever destroyers appear among men, they
start by destroying money, for money is men's
protection and the base of a moral existence.
Destroyers seize gold and leave to its owners a
counterfeit pile of paper. This kills all objective
standards and delivers men into the arbitrary
power of an arbitrary setter of values. Gold was
an objective value, an equivalent of wealth
produced. Paper is a mortgage on wealth that
does not exist, backed by a gun aimed at those
who are expected to produce it. Paper is a check
drawn by legal looters upon an account which
is not theirs: upon the virtue of the victims.
Watch for the day when it bounces, marked, 'Account overdrawn.'
