Two lessons for diy

Postby come-hunt » Sat Feb 25, 2012 3:41 pm

This cuts through the political double talk we get from Washington D.C.
Lesson #1
U.S. Tax revenue---------------$2,170,000,000,000
Fed. budget----------------------$3,820,000,000,000
New debt -----------------------$1,650,000,000,000
National debt -----------------$14,271,000,000,000
Recent budget cuts ------------- $38,500,000,000
Let's now remove 8 zeros and pretend it's the family budget.
Annual family income -------------$21,200
Money the family spent------------ $38,200
New debt on credit card ----------- $16,500
Outstanding balance on card -----$142,710
Total budget cuts ------------------- $385

Did you get it ?

Lesson #2
Here is another way to look at it.
Let's say you come home from work and discover there has been a sewer back-up in your neighborhood---- your house has filled up to the ceiling with sewage. What should you do? Your choices-- raise the ceiling or pump the shit out?
for Americans that choice is coming in Nov. 2012
