OMG. Liability per citizen $189,031

That's more than I make in several years. Before taxes.

I'm guessing that "per citizen" includes each baby and child?

I had no idea that paying just interest on national debt is the 4th largest budget item in the United States....

Thank you for posting this, Marsha.

http://www.barrypopik.com/index.php/new_york_city/entry/a_billion_here_a_billion_there_pretty_soon_youre_talking_real_money/ whether old Everett was the first to say it or not does not make it less true. When you talk about numbers that people cannot wrap their minds around it takes us out of the realm of reality and into the world on "Monoply" money. I remember how much fun it was to spend that and whn it was gone, no real consequences- Thanks, Marsha

I'm afraid that I have to admit that I cannot afford to pay my share of the US debt. Someone is going to have to pick up my tab. Thanks in advance; I'll pay the tip if service was good.

As I see it, Alice, I could never pay my part either (I have hard enough time paying my part of survival expenses).

But if worst comes to worst, when they come for us for non-payment, maybe you and I can share a cell. We'll invent Sploofus - The Card Game to play in our spare time after busting rocks!






(Oh, I guess it's already invented. Trivial Pursuit?)
