    This is NOT going to end well...

    Federal debt tops $16 trillion, Treasury Dept. says - Washington Times

    Even worse, if the federal government handled regular accounting like every business in America is forced to, the debt would be more like $100 trillion+. Even by their accounting standards, every baby born here comes with at least $50,000 owed.

    How is this shit in any way moral?

    The Debt Clock website appears to be going batshit: U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time

    $5.4 trillion...

    16,015,769,788,215.80 | The Weekly Standard

    You think $16 trillion is bad, imagine if our President were to get his way:

    Time to start selling off some assets:

    Hawaii to Japan.

    Alaska to either Canada or Russia (good bidding war potential)

    Texas to Mexico.

    Problem solved.
