A Frightning Perspective....

How many digits does your Calculator hold??

If you spent $10,000,000.00 a day. That's correct, $10 Million a Day every single Day since Christ (That would be Jesus Christ, for clarification) was born you wouldn't exceed the amount of Money the Federal Government has spent on Bailouts. Do ya think there is trouble brewing?

$10,000,000.00
x
2009
x
365.25 (Accounting for Leap Year)
=
$7,337,872,500,000.00 (That's 7.3 Trillion Freakin Dollars)

Kind of intersting isn't it that the majority of Americans are against all this debt creation via bailouts, stimulus, tarp...whatever name the politicos assign here is irrelevant. What is terribly relevant is the politicians in America no longer recognize their job descriptions to serve the people not FORCE their will down our thoats on the assumption they know what is best for us. They go to Washington, get in the game and abandon the folks who put them there. If you don't spend your lunch hours writing e-mails to congress to express outrage at their actiosn....you should maybe consider doing so soon. We NEED all the help we can get, America is in trouble.

Oh dear. All I can do is 'gulp'. I just had a knotty feeling form in my stomach. How in the world did it get like this, and why in the world hasn't anyone cared enough to say ENOUGH!
