So perhaps he can reconcile those two concepts and explain why we allow H1Bs when we have MILLIONS of unemployed college grads?

That one's easy, English majors who've never taken a Shakespeare course aren't worth very much. Kids graduated thinking their piece of paper was worth something......turns out it's not worth much if you can't do anything.

Communism is a version of Socialism. The USSR was run by the Communist Party, which was communist in name (although it wasn't what Marx imagined).

This comment makes it seem like you don't understand the difference between communism and socialism. If you don't know it, I suggest you at least read up on the topic on Wikipedia. If you do know it, and understand why the USSR didn't consider themselves to be communist, then I suggest you write more clearly.

We can have a civilized discussion about government debt without jumping to BS numbers* for total debt can't we?

Well sure, let me know why you think Great Britain is going to be the first to go, I'm still not clear why you think that, other than something vague about having a lot of debt (which many countries do).

Also: Citation needed for the total debt number.

That number doesn't include citizens/business, it includes things the government has committed to paying but hasn't funded. If you do a search for "us total liability," there are plenty of different estimates. I chose $150trillion because it's somewhere in the middle of the estimates.
