Scariest page on the net?

Tracking back through D.P. links, I opened this page and got a, had a, felt a? I don`t know what to say/call it. I stared a long time at this page trying to wrap my head around just what it all meant, even now it`s so beyond any reasoning power, words are difficult to find. I look at this page and wonder how many of you also are overwhelmed at its implications/consequences. We have all heard innumerable discussions about certain elements of this page , but quantifying the entirety and its ramifications always escaped me until i saw this and it certainly without any doubt redefines the word `innumerable` for me.
Then i wondered; how accurate was it? Did its` authors also tell me enormous lies to hide the true disgusting facts, probably they do i told myself,which then led to the awful realization this was maybe never going to change unless a GREAT deal of other things changed first. A seemingly insurmountable problem list arose in my mind and i was back at the start rubbing my temples and cradling a rapidly sinking heart.
Anger , frustration, accusations, the whole rollercoaster ride of emotions flowed through me. Then it hit me, we as individuals can never overcome this, we have to do it together in total accord, but what? I can`t tell you what to do because i don`t have the answers and its not libertarian of me to do so. I can tell you the picture looks really really bad in the good old U.S.A. and my gut tells me your needs there may one day include foreign`volunteers` with interesting `skills` as the nation has had in the past. If that call comes from your country i am very sure many will answer it as will I :) http://www.usdebtclock.org/

First time I became aware of

First time I became aware of the debt clock was in '08 and I was blown away at 9 trillion...seems like child's playnow. It has almost doubled in 4 years.

There are no words...

And mildly nauseating, too....

What would the Founders do?

Yup. Posted this yesterday, but no takers then.

U.S. Borrowing Limit Already Breached By $7.5B & Counting

Now at nearly $10.5B, there is no end in sight especially with a Congress in denial. We are living in a bubble about to burst, IMO.


Sorry to have missed...

What would the Founders do?

No way out

No way out

only one way this ends - default

either quickly by not paying/bankruptcy or slower with inflation. but inflation will speed up

no good end

Debt limit breach 10,316,000,000

It’s only been 4 days. What’s that going to be in two months when they revisit the issue?

Love how they break that down per citizen too. If I owe, that means I have a say, can I deny the wars part, I didn't ask for those.

What they need to post is a detailed budget; I bet someone can find some savings. America has lots of thrifty people, just none in Washington.

Just open the box and see

They don't have to be thrifty!

They have goons with guns to go out and collect their income for them. Thrifty is for the peasants that have to work for a living.


it's actually WAY too small of a number since it does not include upcoming debt obligations. That $16.4Trill is actually somewhere up in the $70Trill range with the obligated funds added in.


I can't begin to comprehend what a $1Billion really is regarding the $FRN much less $70Trillion. I am quite comfortable believing that there isn't ONE person in congress that does either.
