According to the web site USDebtClock.org, the national debt as of 7:18 a.m. Pacific time on this, the first day of September, 2009, was $11,740,092,343,061…and counting.
The per person debt is at $38,199 and climbing with each day. Is it any wonder that the people of America are enraged over the disregard, and in some cases, contempt, that our elected officials have toward average citizens who see the national debt being used as a tool to control vitually every aspect of the economy.
