Interest owed on the federal debt is 1,000,000,000 (billion) every 46 hours

Really? Pardon my French, but are you fucking kidding me? Sorry, the national debt is one of the things that just makes me sick to my stomach every time I think about it. Why does no one bat an eye when they think about this? I don’t know about you, but it doesn’t sit well with me that we’re going to be leaving future generations with a monstrous debt — that’s getting worse, NOT better, by the day — they have to deal with. And that’s most certainly going to happen unless people start voting for politicians who will act in the long term best interest of this country as opposed to those who are willing to cut taxes just to get votes.

But, this country doesn’t vote for politicians that raise taxes, tell the truth, and make tough decisions. Damn.
