Wake Up and Smell the Coffee-while you can still brew it!



To whom do we owe this money?  Primarily Japan and China, Brazil, Venezuela, Great Britain and some of the Arabic Gulf states.  The cost of the Iraq war to date?  Around $265,000,000,000.  Billions.  What do we owe China?  Roughly the same.  This administration and the congress that allowed this should be ashamed.  Completely.  I hope you're brushing up on your foreign language skills.  How do you say "can I have a Grande Latte please" in Mandarin?

I'm afraid you've got things ass backwards. Thanks to Dubya and his administration, you won't need to know how to say "can I have a Grande Latte please" in Mandarin, you'll need to know how to say "would you like that Grande?".

Scary stuff....I was watching all the news channels last night as I was sewing something for my grand baby. I am very depressed today.

Your post would be downright funny if it wasn't so darn true, we are all lost and some of it is our own fault...ciao

hahaha...wt sure has that right!!! And we'll be lucky if we're in a position to say it. Employed.

What has me utterly amazed is how stupid people can be... and what a lack of memory they have. Connect the dots people!!!

We're going to end up a third world country. On the up side, it might help our arrogance.

(and you know its bad when this guy is bypassing the politicians and taking the info to the public.)

Where's the TRUTH!! Where's the LEADERSHIP!!

I agree Brenda-this one rests on all of us-it doesn't matter what our politics, we all owe this.

Crusty, I think our leaders must be in a Berlitz foreign language class polishing their own skills for new jobs.

More like "do you want fries with that?" We'll be working for them to pay back the debt, not buying coffee drinks!
