Not much left to say?

Say it isn't so....
When I first started writing here a couple of months ago, I was all fired up with things I wanted to say.  Now, it seems that I'm not expressing myself the way I was hoping.  I ask myself: Do I want this space to just be the repository of all the minutiae of the previous day?

I love to gather facts and trivia each day and I don't know what I'd do without the internet and high speed connection.  I like to read news sources from all over to get a balanced approach to what's going on in the world around me.  Earlier today, I heard some facts and I recall that, historically, it took the U.S. all the time from 1776 until approximately 1990 to reach $3 Trillion in debt.  However, in less than two years, the country has borrowed another $3 Trillion.

Here is an illustration of what One Trillion looks like.  (Note the man in the bottom left.  Those pallets are double-stacked to about six feet in height.)
 That's a lot of money!

  1. Write for yourself. It doesn't matter what you write or who follows you. What you wrote about our debt is of interest as well as any little thing that is relevant to you. But again, you don't want to view your blog as a job or a have to. Blog what you want, when you want. Peace.
