I took a look around and found that:

Since 2001 both the Iraq and Afghan war has nearly cost the US 1 trillion dollars.
The cost of both wars are now at $916,371,230,651 billion US dollars and speeding up. By summer time its most likely that it will pass 1 trillion dollars. That's insane!

The Outstanding Public Debt as of 03 Oct 2009 at 03:59:45 PM GMT is:

$11,927,463,318,856,52 Insane!

But this is just the public dept. Then you have the unfounded liberties and they are at the Insane: $59,154,260,799,247 This is trillion US dollars. They include MEDICARE/MEDICARE LIBERTIES. SCOCIAL SECURITY and PRESCRIPTION DRUG LIBERTY.

The US government bailout as you can see is at 12 trillion, 19 billion, 750 million, here the clock is going to fats to record.

EDIT: Ever wondered who you own all this dept to? Who has the leverage to give out this kind of money?

I hate to seem like the spelling police here but I nearly choked on my coffee when I read this "unfounded liberties" and that second part: PRESCRIPTION DRUG LIBERTY

I know you meant to write unfunded liabilities and prescription drug liabilities. The misspelling though was just too funny not to make a comment.

One of the most disgusting things I've ever seen is McCain and Obama take time out from their campaigns to vote in favor of the bankers bailout. Why anyone after seeing this would vote for either one of these treasonist dirt bags is beyond me.

But it did benefit me in that it reaffirmed what I already knew, that everything that comes out of their mouths will be a lie.

It does make crystal clear the fact that the answer to our problems is outside of the two major parties.

One of the only slightly good things to come out of this, for me, is a printed list of highlighted names of my representatives that I vote against every chance I get.

Money trickles up.

Poor people are poor because they can't hold on to money so it trickles up.

Middle class people are not great with money so some of their money trickles up to.

Rich people can lose everything and become rich all over again. That's why they stay rich. These are the people us regular morons trickle our money to.

Bush did a $800 billion bailout. Obama did his own $800 billion bailout.

That's $1.6 trillion. Divide $1.60 trillion by 350 million Americans.

It works out to be about $4571 PER PERSON.

If the bailout was about helping America, they would have give $4571 to each citizen. A family of 4 would have got $18,284. THAT would have helped.

Who needs the money? The poor and middle class. We could have got that money and trickled it up to the rich.

Instead, they bypassed the poor and middle class and gave it to the Fortune 500 CEOs who later testified they "lost" some of the hundreds of millions they received.

And Congress isn't investigating this. Bailoutgate.

They are not investigating it because the banks are depositing tens of millions of the "lost" money into the accounts of Congress people.

Let me close by saying this; you don't have to be a Republican to go to a tea party or a town hall meeting.

Go to a tea party with a sign that says "Ticked off Democrat." Make friends with some Republicans (because we are your friends). And you will probably eat lunch for free.

The Democrats and Republicans used to be a single political party. They divided so they could conquer all the other parties.

They never really split up.

They want us to think it's repubes versus democraps. Many people believe it. Many people at ATS believe it.

But it's not true.

It's the people versus the Federal government. And the states are in the middle trying to be everyone's friend; pulling a Switzerland all the way to the bank.

If they can get the people fighting each other, they win. THAT IS EXACTLY what they want us to do so they can move what ever plan they have for us to the next level.

They want Republicans and Democrats to violently attack each other.

Don't fall for it.

They have the military but WE ARE the military. Our sons, our fathers.

Talk to your family, friends, and coworkers in the military. Make them admit who they will support when it all hits the fan.

We can not go after each other.

We can not go after the military.

We can not go after the government.

That's the military's job.

We can win but if we go after each other, we WILL lose.

Peace until war my friends.

Peace until war.

Just remember, we SUPPORT the military.
Let the military do the shooting.
It's their job, not ours.
