They say 13 is an unlucky number.
I think your officially a zombie nation. The figures suggest the u.s is already dead.

I heard on talk radio this morning we finally hit 90% debt to gdp. This spells the end times for us. A ratio that high is unsustainable, it'll hinder ANY growth.

Funny that the Fed owns about 50% of U.S. treasury securities.

They print the money and force us to pay it back with interest. It must be nice to be a private entity with 7 trillion dollars of U.S. debt as assets.

A true mafia wet dream.

Dammit! Everyone is so down about this information! You can't see the forest thru the trees!!

Our government has led the way to the solution of our woes. We need to spend, and spend big!!!!

Debt be damned! We need to shell out more money! That will fix all the problems!!

OK, sarcasm off.

$13 trill "officially" ...

Then there's that other 50 or 60 trillion in unfunded liabilities (social security, etc) you have to think about

Here is what Obama said he would do about the then $9,000,000,000,000 debt WAY, WAY, WAY, WAY back in June of 2007.

I'll paraphrase, "We'll bring the troops home from Iraq and cut all of the waste in Washington - but also true - I'm a big believer in spending everyone else's money to suit my progressive agenda."

It's a good thing it's not our debt (people living in the "United States"). Stop paying your taxes people and stop being the slave. Tell the Human Farmers to take a hike we don't need them anymore. Take back the 50% of your labor and use it to get your lives together and help your family's not the "United States". Stop being afraid and live people.

I am from the UK and work in the money advice sectorand i was reading the BBC news website on articles about the credit crunch and was instantly drawn to the theory that the credit crunch /sub prime crisis was engineered by the banks to get billions of pounds and dollars to the banks
