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!
