#2 During Obama's first term, the federal government accumulated more debt than it did under the first 42 U.S presidents combined. #4 If you started paying off just the new debt that the U.S. has accumulated during the Obama administration at the rate of one dollar per second, it would take more than 184,000 years to pay it off. #27 Back in 1965, only one out of every 50 Americans was on Medicaid. Today, one out of every 6 Americans is on Medicaid, and things are about to get a whole lot worse. It is being projected that Obamacare will add 16 million more Americans to the Medicaid rolls.

Pointing out facts that puts any negative light on the current regime isn’t only racist Komrade, it could be criminal. Perhaps you need an audit from your friends at the I.R.S to clear your thinking up, hmmm?
I just finished watching “Dr. Zhivago” which I hadn’t seen since I was a kid, so you can imagine how much your comment is scaring me.
Cue the “That’s Racist!” kid or the Asian dude.
From what I hear, the liberals nowaday say that the national debt is not a problem.
In fact, there have been liberal people on MSNBC who say that we’re decreasing the deficit too fast, and that decreasing the deficit hurts the economy.
" Screw you, taxpayers.
WE (in Congress) WIN."
Nations in denial, like people, can’t turn around a slide until they are willing to face reality. Americans choose denial.
It’s like we are living on one big Animal Farm. One a side note, another great movie to watch that is kind of creepy is “The Conversation”. If you haven’t seen it already, check it out:
I just printed off ten copies to leave on the windshields of my liberal neighbors.
Absolutely NONE of it matters to the moocher base of the Democrat party.
LOL, I bet some lib idiots will think this is real.
I was doing payroll for a bunch of libs that were whining about Bush’s tax cuts. But when the cuts were approved, they were the first to ask when it would show up on their pay check, so I told them that the IRS had 2 forms, 1 with cuts for Rs, and 1 without for Ds.
I heard a similar whining from liberals when they took a little less pay home back in January when some of the tax cuts expired. I just smiled and said, “everyone needs to pay their fair share” followed by a parting, “elections have consequences”. Libs don’t like hearing their on rhetoric thrown back in their faces in my experience.

What was their reaction?
Grumpy cat face.
We have to find small pleasures wherever we can.
We have to find small pleasures wherever we can.
Just like paying off the mortgage, car loans, and credit cards hurts the family budget?
Good plan. The gov’t will take every penny of any “money” the subjects has saved before it goes down.
Believe me, they are already monitoring email, text messages, phone conversations, Tweets, and Facebok updates of every member of FR. Don’t kid yourself. The next step is to deny basic life-saving medical care to anyone who disagrees with the regime,
“#1 Back in 1980, the U.S. national debt was less than one trillion dollars. Today, it is rapidly approaching 17 trillion dollars..”
I remember back in grade school my teacher was concerned about the size of the trillion dollar debt and she wrote the number trillion out on the black board.
I remember back in grade school we were proud to be a creditor nation.
P.S., and back when I was in grade school I would say my nightly prayers and thank God that I was lucky to be born in the U.S., because even though we were poor, I could grow up and be anything I wanted to be, and free to believe anything I wanted.
My grandkids don’t feel the same way.
Who is John Galt?
Agreed. This is why I’m trying to expand my seed supply this year, and hoping to make progress on my house before winter.
The good news is, one of my disagreements with my dad actually turned out in my favor for once. He hated my potato towers, said they were ugly and not in a straight line. He had told me to move them from the back yard out to my land, so I was planning to do that this weekend. Long story short, he changed his mind about what to do with them, and I got a third garden bed out of the deal! One end sectioned off for potatoes, and the other end is already planted with peppers, onions, and runner beans :)
And you can bet there will be folks on both sides denying these numbers. There will be some on FR who deny trade deficits are bad...for starters
Our economy is in the toilet....and will get worse the more we ignore it
Yeah, but liberals lie - and they can’t do math...
Back in 2006, if you raised concerns about the booming housing market being made of clay, you were in for a red hot flame attack from Freepers who were real estate agents, mortgage brokers, and house flippers.
I kid you not.
Good for you. Growing food is good and I’m learning to do that.
Wow....by 2006 all the signs were there for a housing collapse....esp in areas like Florida and Nevada.....where we were giving folks lo
ans of 110% of the house...who had minimum wage jobs
I notice people quote a lot of economic babble that originates from liberal schools....from people who have no clue how economics really works
There were a couple of freepers I remember ( Texan and Hydroschock) that constantly warned about the housing bubble. They were a small warning voice in the wind. I learned that it is important to listen to learn and Do your own diligence .

"All 40 frightening facts at link. #4 a good way to explain the debt to people."
Worth the read...
But they can quote Paul Krugman!
Another good reason to flee America while you can.
I do not expect America to recover in my lifetime, if ever.
Idiots now outnumber real people. I do not see ever returning.
Yet, those households are bringing in more money than my household is. Someone please explain that.
Ain't it grand that a kid born someplace else was free to grow up to be president of the US. Praise be, Allah.
Liberals, taker, couldn’t care less. We conservatives keep attacking this problem as thought they care to have a prosperous country; they don’t. They want to take this country down. They have no idea what they would put in its place but they hate this country. They are simple minded idiot that are led around by pop culture and commercialism. They have no idea how to take control of their life, so, life being complicated to them, they desire its destruction.
As I posted previously, I watched “Dr. Zhivago” today, andwhen he came home from war, opened the door to his house, it was full of people and he didn’t know what to think. Someone said they were from the housing commission, and that there was enough room in his house for 13 families! He knew better to say anything or get shot, so he says, “oh yes, much more just!”
Made me think of the agenda in our country today.
