National Debt

Now we all know about the National Debt, and how the 800 Billion dollar bailout added to the debt our children will be straddled with!   But what about all the other money that the FED lent out?  Click on the image below to find out.

Note: a stack of 100 dollar bills, that equals 1 trillion dollars, will reach 62 miles high!  Or, if you paid back a loan at 1 dollar a second it would take 31.7 years to pay back 1 billion dollars... or 31,700 years to pay back 1 trillion dollars.

The government (and the big banks) are really screwing this country!  We are quickly becoming a 3rd World Nation.

I am one of those "once" middle class, over 60, over educated, under-employed, semi retired, soon to be poor workers, that everyone is talking about. 
But I have a modest standard of living so I plan to give all extra donation, beyond my immediate needs, to several of my favorite charities.
