Our Nation's Deficit Explained Or Why We Can't Afford This Crap Anymore

via Protein Wisdom

Imagine that you had an average monthly income of about $170 balanced against average monthly expenses of about $940–and that you were more than $14,000 in debt.
Then imagine that as of today, you had only $58.60 in cash left in your bank account and $130.50 left on your line of credit.
Now multiply these numbers by 1 billion and you will have the up-to-date financial situation of the U.S. government.
Now, just how important is it for our federal government to fund yet another study of left handed lesbian nuns playing right handed flutes while simultaneously painting a portrait of a dancing tuna? Naked, except for their spirituality? Opposed to, say, ensuring the viability of our currency.
