“Federal Spending and US Debt is a greater threat than terrorism,” (said David Walker, the former US Comptroller General for a decade (before Obama) – he’d launched a campaign to convince Americans that America is in greater trouble than perceived.)
The amount is not a shell game any more. The “it’s under this walnut shell ….. no; no; that one!” One has to look under them all says Gregory Bresiger of News.com.au says: US Government is ‘hiding true amount of debt’.
Like it or not, at this point, the Guvmunt is the Obama Administration.
The staggering amount of $13.4 trillion is an illusion. Some disagree; they’re saying it’s $16+ trillion, actually …. at least, when one takes into account bankrupt social security, and Medicare.
The above amounts pale in light of what others quote has been hidden! Not only does it not show up, the actual figure is astronomical – ranging from $60 to $200 trillion.
I learned a lesson, … as a young man, in the Arlington Heights Race Track parking lot, … I should have watched a bit longer before betting; by the time I realized who the 3 schills were …. they disappeared into the dispersing crowd when one of the 4, yelled “COPS!” It was all over and everyone’s money was sprinting across the lot to the Caddy, parked by the exit.
Of the federal schills, … some, have become really adept at ‘slight of hand’. When it’s the guvmunt dealing the 3-card-monte game or shuffling walnut shells and telling us to ‘find the pea’ ….. one cannot trust those spending our money ….. Republican or Democrat!
