$12,104,000,000,000

That's the number of dollars, the AP is reporting that "we the people" owe, all thanks to these fine clowns in Washington DC. These are they who take our money and spend it at will, on whatever they deem necessary -- whenever they want. (And you can bet there are plenty of expenses like this, at the top of the list.)

If you do not pay your taxes they come after you. You can rest assured they will take the money by force, if necessary.

They will take what you own, sell it, and keep the money. They will arrest you, charge you, try you, convict you, sentence you, fine you , and sometimes incarcerate you for not giving them money to piss away -- like an 18 year old drunken soldier (or sailor) on liberty from boot camp. But even at that, maybe the 18 year old does have some sense about him: Even he knows when he is out of money and he usually stops spending until he gets more.

But let's get back to the number, shall we?

Let's round down this number a little closer (for someone that may not be able to grasp this figure in its entirety). Twelve trillion dollars owed means that every American owes approximately $40,000,000,000. That's forty billion - with a capital "B".

Now, you liberals that still lurk here (and I know you do, because I see you on the Sitemeter), tell us all in simple terms just how you expect this to get paid - swiftly and surely? Don't be shy, don't be reserved. Explain to us poor stupid plebeians just how you think this will get done. We really want to know.

I say this, because we all have calculators and can perform basic skills on them. And when we take the dollars this nation owes and divide it by the number of people that are citizens of this nation, this is the number we get.

The person who cannot work because he/she is ill, handicapped cannot pay anything. Those who are too damned lazy to work can't pay it and wouldn't if they could. Because they believe the system owes it to THEM - instead of our creditors.

Those who are the heart and soul of the workforce in this country cannot pay that much over a hundred lifetimes. They would if they could, because that's the kind of people they are. But they just aren't able and it's quite the fantasy to think they can.

No...that's not who we will need to step up to the plate. Once again, the people that will be forced to pay the bill will be the ones that create jobs in this economy. They won't be able to create many though, because they will be saddled in higher taxes and therefore unable to hire more people to do anything. This means very little innovation, very little investment, and very little growth (if any at all) is about to come our way for the next 20-30 years.

Unless the working people of this great nation can learn to see that the Democratic party is about to crash this nation's future, your children and grandchildren will be destined to live as poorly as the people of Haiti. There will be nothing left of this nation to give to anyone in our lineage, no hope, no nothing. We will have ceded it to China and we will be their workers for paltry sums of money.

Think about this long and hard, before you start falling for more lies like these. The vast majority of promises he made to this nation to get elected, he has broken several times over. Don't fall for more twisted rhetoric that you will likely be hearing tomorrow night, in the State of the Union Address.

I just commented on something like this on another blog. The analogy I used was Venezuela.

Venezuela is quickly becoming a house of cards. They are getting to the point in which their entire economy is propped up by governmental funding. A country cannot survive with that model. We are headed that way.

We are headed towards a complete and total collapse. I suspect the day will come that people will long for the prosperity of the last year of the Bush administration, that will look good compared to what we are getting into.

Your Haiti government analogy holds up here in that we will be a weak, poor country with no global influence. Sitting around waiting for the next disaster to grind us down further.

It's laughable that Obama has suddenly become a "populist". He's a con artist...flim-flam man-snake oil salesman. He talks out of one side of his mouth about all the money and tax breaks he's going to give to the middle class, and then he says he's going to freeze middle class domestic spending programs. He has money for Wall Street, and wants to cut school lunches for poor kids. He talks about wanting to "give our kids a better chance" and improve our educational system...even saying he wants to have school year round, and then says he will freeze increases for education.

Nothing Obama says makes any sense because, as he always as, he tries to play both sides of the fence.

I already did a post about this today and made a list of things I think he could cut...just to show us all that he actually wants to be a part of the sacrifices that we are all expected to make.

Stop exaggerating, LAS. Why, 2/3 of Obama's cabinet nominees can prove your point wrong! :)

If only I were convinced the Republicans would be fiscally responsible. I'm not.

Don't fall for more twisted rhetoric that you will likely be hearing tomorrow night, in the State of the Union Address.

You mean you aren't looking forward to the rhetoric on the 'punish the banks' program and the 'watch me be generous and give some people your tax money to hopefully buy votes' program? Yeah, me neither. I won't watch, in fact.

Kind of OT, but maybe you guys will appreciate this photo as much as I did. It's the Prez talking to a 6th grade class.

The older we get, the good old days get better and better. In fact, it won't be long before we see Carter as a huge step up from the clown we have in there now.

He may want us to think he's a populist, but he's really a puppet. Both words have P's in them. but that's as close as they get.

Good point, but the last time I checked there was no offer for me to be in his cabinet. So if it's all the same, I'll just pay the taxes until I get something firm, in writing.

Greg, I saw that photo yesterday. The Secret Service Agent, I understand. But why the hell does a guy need teleprompters to speak to kids, anyway?

Sadly I'm already there

I don;t think I am quite there yet, but close. I passed Clinton a few months ago.
