CHART - It's The Spending, Stupid!

A fiscal cliff drop in the bucket.

CHART - CBO Projection Of Federal Spending 2002 - 2022.

Just a quick chart to demonstrate that the fiscal cliff deal on taxes means essentially nothing in the grand scheme of future federal spending.  Chart is from the following story:

Here's some quick debt math.

The national debt will hit $25 trillion in 6-7 years. At that point, assuming a normal financing cost of 5% (could be higher if we have inflation, could be lower if we are still in slow growth Japan mode), the INTEREST on the debt will be $1.25 TRILLION annually. Assuming we have federal tax receipts of approximately $3 trillion (they are about $2.6 trillion now), that means we will be spending roughly 40% of all our annual revenue just to pay the interest on the money that we already borrowed.

At 40% no government can survive.

Time to acquire some more silver and some more ammo, if I can find any. Both will be currency after this mess collapses.

Aussie, many thanks for calling us stupid. However, if you we're to read further into this site, you would find that there is ample discussion on that subject. Hope you are not in that part of Australia that has burst into flames.

Any government program designed by monopolists
will mainly benefit the monopolists by covering the
monopoly blanket over the population as fully as
possible and then draining the population.

The opposite is empowering the population.

Aussie, Much to your chagrin, my niece married an Australian so I guess that makes us even. I think sir that what we have is a misguided attempt on your part to voice frustration of our governments on going wars etc. Please take into consideration that not all US people are of a mind for corparate conquests and such. I would certainly not personally hold you accountable for your governments hatred towards the Aborigines in your home land and your countries desire to help our government in Iraq. http://www.countercurrents.org/polya030410.htm Here also is a piece from your country where the eugenics movement was clearly being carried out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!The Gloomy History of Australia

The Europeans, who established the new settlements in Australia, did not encounter any major resistance from the native population. The aboriginals sometimes helped the white settlers providing food when they faced scarcities. The Aboriginals were no match for the highly armed European settlers. Gradually the natives were attacked and driven to the desert land. In the ill famous Myall Creek massacre in 1830 even the aboriginal children were murdered.

From 1869 to the late 1960s (in some parts until 1970) the Australian governments removed part-Aboriginal children from their mothers, parents, families and communities, often by force. . Children were placed with institutions and from the 1950s began also being placed with white families. Aboriginal children were expected to become labourers or servants, Aboriginal girls in particular were sent to homes established by the Board to be trained in domestic service. These victims later came to know as the Stolen Generation. According to Dr Jane McKendrick Psychiatrist at the Melbourne University stated that ‘a large number of people from the Stolen Generations were either psychologically, physically or sexually abused while in
I guess I will not have to give you graphic pictures for your mind to comprehend just how evil your culture has been at times.
