5-6-7 billion!

We thought this was interesting.

Check out the US National Debt Clock and the US Federal Government Budget Spending.

The United States Bureau of Public Debt has some pretty skyrocketing debt numbers as well.

In 2000, the US National Public Debt was $5,674,178,209,886.86.

As of yesterday, the US National Public Debt was sitting at $7,950,034,655,748.03.

holy shite.

It makes more sense to price dollars in terms of oil as opposed to current convention.

The debt is only going higher.

Look up an economist named Michael Hudson to get an even better understanding of it.

I wish people would stop calling W. a Conservative.

He's not worthy.

You know, there are still parts of the US where George Bush's NeoCons are referred to as socialists.

NeoCons and Trotskyites. There's some sort of connection there.
