Pretty are they not?
A spectacular show those whom have not experienced the horrors of war. A simulation of the explosions, the roar, and the crackle of fire in the night. But Stinger missiles do not blast in shades of red white and blue, and phosphorus is a white that is blindingly bright that almost burns the eyes while it lights the night sky.
What have we become?
What have we done?
“The strength of the Constitution lies entirely in the determination of each citizen to defend it. Only if every single citizen feels duty bound to do his share in this defense are the constitutional rights secure.”
― Albert Einstein
I think Obama and Co have been listening to the Beatles way too much.
Take a deep breath.
Get out your calculator.
Now lets break this down.
Thats 221 Billion with a capital “B” boys and girls in 30 days.
Spending was $328 billion. We have a income of $107 Billion. That means we are spending almost three times what we as a country are earning.
In simple terms if you and your spouse, or you by yourself make $50,000 a year. This would be the equivalent to you spending $150,000 a year.
What would happen to you?
Take it another step. the federal Government could go to every man woman and child in America right now and ask us for $2,000 this month. We would only just pay that money.
But they would still not have enough for next month.
This is the single largest deficit in American History. Ever. Period.
Another comparison. Greece and Dubai are both in severe unrest with $20 Billion dollars in the hole. That is built up over years.
We just blew through that about 110 times. In 30 days.
Effectively we are spending $2 for every dollar that the US Government earns.
There is nothing balanced about this. There is nothing logical about this. There is nothing even sane about this.
I’m not a Accountant. I do have a degree in Business Management. I can read profits, losses, and see trends. I’m not an expert but I’m not a drooling idiot either.
Folks we need to wake up and fast. This is a road to ruin, not profit.
Congress raised the debt ceiling by $300 billion in December. In late January, they voted to raise it again by $1.9 trillion. The Congressional Budget Office says they ran through that $1.9 trillion by the end of February.
This means that the record breaking deficit we just had? It can be broken, and broken in to small tiny pieces.
Want another example to show you just how serious this is?
The US Government Bailed out General Motors for practices similar to this because it was on the verge of collapse.
Whose going to bail us out?
Until something is done I can show you who.
You. And everyone else behind you.
