Our Incredible, Static Debt

This report from CNS states that while we were running a $98 billion deficit for the month of July, the national debt – per the Treasury – remained at exactly $16,699,396,000,000.00 during the whole month.  This is $25 million below the legally authorized debt limit.

This is, also, not mathematically possible – the Treasury Secretary did advise Speaker Boehner as of May 17th – when our debt officially hit the number it stayed at all through July, and is still at as of yesterday – that Treasury would be putting in to place “extraordinary” measures to keep the debt below the legal limit.  What are these extraordinary measures?  Not made clear – likely because it is just another word for “lie”.

It is simply not possible that our debt could remain exactly the same over this period of time – it would have to go up or down.  Given the amount of spending we’re doing, “down” is not at all likely, and so it is almost a certainty that it has gone up…and probably vastly more than the $25 million gap between reported figure and legal limit.  So, Treasury is almost certainly lying about how much we owe and borrowing money it cannot legally borrow…and no one in Congress is calling Treasury on it; neither are the financial markets.  A massive lie is being treated as if it didn’t exist by all of the Ruling Class on this country.

Such is the sad state of affairs we live in – a bankrupt country run by cowards, liars and crooks.

And some might wonder, still, why I want a revolution – peaceful, to be sure; at the ballot box, of course (and as our Founders intended); but a revolution, nonetheless.  The entire Ruling Class has to be turned out and new people, new ideas and new laws made to ensure that the truth is what governs our nation.

    gutting our military.parking air craft carriers, cancelling hundreds of weapons programs while the grifters PAR TAY with HUNDREDS of MILLIONS of OPM.

    Is this a great country or what?
    One where a Kenyan communist can have a bastard child with a communist mother, marry her for a few months, divorce her never pay a penny for the child but go to college on a grant, The communist mother then marrys a muslim indonesion who adopts the kid, but then ships him off to live with his communist grandparents and communist neighbor who photographs his now divorced mother in the nude. The kid joins a gang and becomes a pothead, and finally goes to the mainland of the US at 20yo, meets and hangs with mobsters, communists, radical muslims like calipso louie who introduces him to a racist lunatic “preacher” who indoctrinates him with HATE, venom and bile for 20 years.
    He is cheated into the US senate after being unemployed for several years then after two years becomes president of the USA>

    That is when I woke up in a sweat, and said THANK GOD, I live in America where such a bizarre dream like that could NEVER happen.

        This from the guy who whines about ad hominem “attacks”?

        Let me guess—–you will claim this is supposed to be good-natured ribbing, right?

        Don’t you have anything to say about what he said?

    It’s the same thing as saying that unemployment is just 7.4%. It’s simply a matter of when you stop counting.

        Count, were you affected by the fires? I don’t know how close you are but I know I have been seriously affected by smoke from some of our fires, and even today we have haze from fires over in Idaho. You must have been right in the middle of it all.
