Just found this on the BBC website, and thought my fellow ATS friends across the pond would be interested..


The figure is impossible to comprehend: easier to focus on the fact that it grows at $40,000 (£25,000) a second. Getting out of Afghanistan will help but actually only at the margins. The problem is much bigger than any one area of expenditure.


www.bbc.co.uk...


Seems as though TPTB in American are really REALLY in denial,

But lets go to War anyways..

(apologies for the shortness of the post, only just woke)

Mods please move if you need to

Maybe the website that I am to link in this reply could be wrong but we are far from a 40 k$ a second. Nonetheless we are approaching the 14,3 trillion debt ceiling. By the time that I wirte this article the debt still increasing is at 14,288 trillion $.

Here is the link

Why can't it just be frozen? It's not difficult to not make more debt. Just stop spending.
