Ok, Monday the White House Budget office released figures that say that by 2019 the Federal Budgett Deficit will be $9 Trillion.

How "big" is that number?

Well; the most recent estimates of the age of the universe from the Big Bang till now is about 15 Billion years.

15,000,000,000 years.

Yeah, 15 followed by 9 zeros.

9 trillion is 9,000,000,000,000.

9 followed by 12 zeros.

9 Trillion is 600 times larger than 15 Billion.

Think about that, if left alone the deficit will be 9 TRILLION DOLLARS in 2019.

I'll be 58 years old then. I was hoping to be able to retire in some level of comfort around then and maybe start a consulting firm. I guess I may have to change my plans.

Oh yeah, we voted for hope and CHANGE didn't we?

I'll give you a hint, It ain't the guy in back. As my daddy always said, good manners NEVER go out of style.
Much has been written in the last week or so about the entire Gates episode. I'm not going to add much with my thoughts other than, if Dr. Gates was lying in bed some night and her was to suspect that there was a break-in at his Cambridge house, he wouldn't be calling 1600 Penn. No, he would dial 911 like the rest of us and if he was on duty, you can bet that Sgt. Crowley would respond.
The only "teaching moment" here is that our President is either a simpleton or a liar.
