US debt clock runs out of digits!


news.bbc.co.uk

The US government's debts have ballooned so badly the National Debt Clock in New York has run out of digits to record the spiralling figure.

The digital counter marks the national debt level, but when that passed the $10 trillion point last month, the sign could not display the full amount.

The board was erected to highlight the $2.7 trillion level of debt in 1989.

The clock's owners say two more zeros will be added, allowing the clock to record a quadrillion dollars of debt.

Well it finally ran out of digits. We all knew this would be comming fast with the 700B Bailout.
To fix the issue, they simply turned the $ into a 1.

Future plans are in place, to update the sign next year by adding two digits, so it can track 1 quadrillion dollars

The US now stands at $10.2 trillion debt.

its funny how instead of worrying about it they seem to calm the people by saying "its not problem we will just add 2 more digits on that" kinda like what the government is doing with the bail oit

The federal reserve must be celebrating behind closed doors with cake and champagne. They have bamboozled Americans into thinking they owe a bunch of money/wealth they don't have on an imaginary debt they did not create. There is a special place for these people. One day hopefully soon we will know everyway they have taken advantage of the people of the United States.

I have one digit I've certainly shown the federal government quite a bit of over the past couple weeks that they're free to use as the leading '1' on the clock if needed.
