Because I can easily believe that $18 trillion equates to a $500K mortgage. You're insane.

U.S. NATIONAL DEBT CLOCK

The Outstanding Public Debt as of 25 Apr 2015 at 12:53:31 AM GMT is:

$ 1 8 , 1 5 4 , 4 4 9 , 0 3 0 , 3 6 7 . 6 3

The estimated population of the United States is 320,454,919

so each citizen's share of this debt is $56,652.12.

The National Debt has continued to increase an average of

$2.23 billion per day since September 30, 2012!

No, you're wrong. Discussing classified information via unclassified sources has been illegal for some time.

EXECUTIVE ORDER NO. 12065

Executive Order 12356

EXECUTIVE ORDER 12958 (notice the signatory)

So, please express how the government can address this without a complete record of the Secretary's e-mails? That's assuming you wish to trust the person receiving legal bribes from foreign governments $200K to $500K at a time through speaking fees for her or her husband.

The problem with this assertion is what happens when the next President steps up and is not a member of the DNC. The Democrats will immediately renew dissent as patriotic, object to continued Executive Action expansion based upon President Obama's "streamlining" of laws, and we will have future Presidents planning their fund raising schemes on the outrageous actions of the Clintons, to say the least. One can only wonder if the Jerry Ryan divorce pictures will go public when this happens?

Um, this isn't a serious problem. Government debt is money that US citizens owe to themselves. The net balance is close enough to zero to not worth bothering about (some non-US citizens owe bonds, but many US citizens owe foreign bonds....US citizens own somewhat fewer in total dollar count, but tend to receive higher total returns).

Well I think owing myself $18 trillion in immediate debt and hundreds of trillions in liabilities is enough.

We declare the names of all variables and functions. Yet the Tao has no type specifier.
