$1200 of debt in a day

I added the US Debt widget on this blog a month or so ago. Since then, I've been keeping an eye on our ever-increasing public debt. The number had been going up at about the same rate each day. Then, on Friday, the debt increased $46 billion in one day. $46 billion. That's real money -- and real theft, $1200 from my family alone.

To monitor the debt better, I check-pointed the amount on the image to the right. Keep an eye as our representatives continue to destroy this nation, billion by billion.

Note: The numbers are as of 11:01 pm on October 17, 2009

Hey--maybe we can get Bono from U2 to beg the Chinese to forgive our debt, like he did on behalf of African despots to the US Congress.

$1200 a day is nothing compared to what OLSD residents are going to owe the School District if Feasel gets elected.

You know the district is already plotting to hold the kids hostage if we don't agree to pass the next Administrator Levy. I' sorry, I meant operating levy.

Another six days and you can fund an administrator retreat at the Lakes Golf Club.

Don't forget to invite Julie Feasel!
