A Not So Funny Friday - The U.S. Debt Clock


Washington is broken…there is simply no argument to support any other theory.  If you don't want to believe this, just click on the photo of the U.S. Debt Clock below...it will open in real time and it is staggering.

I just had to share these quotes as I believe they are so apropos:





By J. Stewart Baker:

 “Time is running out on the fiscal policies which were initiated when our national debt was a small fraction of what it is today and which may have been expedient during the war but in present circumstances involve dangers so great as to demand that no further compromise with sound fiscal practice be tolerated”

By Samuel Smiles

“The first step in debt is like the first step in falsehood, involving the necessity of going on in the same course, debt following debt, as lie follows lie”

By Publilius Syrus:

“Debt is the slavery of the free”

Said it like it is.

Good Morning, Lisa, I agreed on this “Debt is the slavery of the free”. So true. Thanks for sharing!
