In the last 8 months, the U.S. government spent $1,000,000,000,000 more than it received in revenue. In a country of 300,000,000 people, that works out to $3,333 per person.
YOU spent that! What the heck were you thinking?
Whether you are a Bush Republican or an Obama Democrat, this is YOUR fault!
Actually, fault is irrelevant, since even the newborns in this country owe this money. They just don't know it yet.
But here is the real question: What did we get for that money? Think about it: $3,000+ will buy a lot of neat stuff.
For example, within the price range of $3-3,333, you could:
-buy one of 1,046 artworks available for immediate sale on eBay.
-put a nice downpayment on a small car.
-buy two(!) Vizio 55" LCD HDTV's from Walmart.
-leave tomorrow for Rome, and come back on July 2nd...with your spouse...stay at a nice hotel near the Colusseum. This includes flight, hotel, and rental car.
I know I'm being frivolous, since it is much more important to bailout banks and failing auto companies. We wouldn't want these people to join the other 9.4% of unemployed Americans. Of course, considering the unemployment rate WAS 6.2% eight months ago, one has to wonder how much these bailouts are really helping. Although I am sure Obama or Bush would probably say something about all the jobs that they have saved, but there sure are a lot of jobs for which they didn't do diddly squat.
Personally, I want my money back.
