evidently you are not paying attention.
Out of curiosity I checked the national debt clock again this morning only to discover we are now
$127.8 BILLION DOLLARS
$17 TRILLION DOLLAR MARK!
Humm, yesterday it was $75B, today $127.8B (and constantly spinning forward), so that would be an additional $52.8 Billion a day later. wow.
You know, studying our national debt is rather like appreciating the vast distances between the planets and stars. I mean, we use the same descriptive numbers; million, billion and trillion and only need to replace the standard unit of measurement of DOLLAR with MILES or LIGHT YEARS.
My best to you and yours, Lew
