Over the last 286 days the US national debt has rose from $15 trillion to $16 trillion at the record rate of $3.5 billion per day.

Most Americans might not have been paying and certainly aren't paying but they will one European style austerity measures are forced into place alongside a massive tax bill to pay the debt collector. Right now that debt has just passed the massive milestone of $16 trillion and only continues to skyrocket at astronomical rates as the economic prosperity of our future and are children's future is being sacrificed to fund illegal foreign wars, to plant seeds that assure more future wars in places such as Syria and Iran, and to implement a massive totalitarian domestic surveillance state to protect those responsible for said bills from the blowback being created as a result said imperialistic foreign policy.

October 1, 2012

California investigators searched Monday for thieves who made off with an estimated $2 million in precious gems and gold from a Central Valley museum during a brazen daytime robbery.

But they didn't get away with the biggest prize of all - the nearly 14-pound Fricot Nugget, a giant crystalline gold mass unearthed in the Gold Rush era. During their attempt to grab the rock, the robbers triggered an alarm that alerted authorities who swarmed the museum but were unable to nab the thieves. At least two robbers wearing hoods and armed with pickaxes threatened workers during the heist Friday at the California Mining and Minerals Museum in Mariposa, the California Highway Patrol said. No suspects have been identified.

$2.4 Trillion Would Be Largest Debt-Limit Increase in U.S. History

The bill to increase the federal debt limit...would increase that limit by up to $2.4 trillion, which would be the largest increase in the debt limit in U.S. history by a margin of half a trillion dollars, according to the CBO and CRS.

In fact, according to records published by the Congressional Research Service, if the current bill is passed and the debt limit is increased by $2.4 trillion, the two largest debt-limit increases in U.S. history would come in back-to-back years, both during the presidency of Barack Obama. Up until now, the largest increase in the debt limit was the $1.9 trillion increase passed by Congress and signed by President Obama on Feb. 12, 2010. That law increased the debt limit from $12.394 trillion to $14.294 trillion.

According to the Internal Revenue Service, the least expensive (in dollars) Obamacare health insurance plan in 2016 will be $20,000 per year for a family of five. The cost in health is immeasurable.

Buried within the dozens of pages of typical government argle bargle, parenthetical references and doublespeak are examples for Americans to use to determine their "penalty" for not being on an Obamacare-approved plan. Bronze coverage (the least expensive Obamacare plan behind silver, gold and platinum) for a family of two adults and three children is $20,000 per year. One relevant section, found on page 70, reads...

$253.5B-Obama Borrowed Nearly 6x as Much in February as Sequester Cuts All Year

During the month of February--as President Barack Obama was warning Americans they would see dramatic effects in their lives if "sequestration" of some planned federal spending kicked in--the federal government's debt climbed by $253.5 billion.

That one-month increase in the debt was nearly six times as much as the $44 billion in spending cuts the Congressional Budget Office estimates will take place in all of fiscal 2013 as a result of sequestration. At the close of business on Jan. 31, 2013, the federal debt was $16,433,791,850,294.04, according to the U.S. Treasury. At the close of business on Feb. 28, 2013, the federal debt was $16,687,289,180,215.37. Thus, the federal debt increased $253,497,329,921.33 during the month.

$300 million taxpayer investment in Solyndra sold for ... $90.3 million

In 2009, the Obama administration approved a set of loan guarantees to Solyndra that totaled over $520 million, which supposedly would have created thousands of new jobs.

Most of that money, $300 million, went to build a new manufacturing plant for the solar panels that cost more to build than the market price they could fetch. For some reason, the Department of Energy and the White House found this to be a solid business model. Eventually, the company went bankrupt despite an effort by the Obama administration to bring new cash into Solyndra - by illegally subordinating taxpayer standing in event of a collapse. The bankruptcy continued to unwind this week with the sale of the new facility. The $300 million facility managed to go for 30 cents on the dollar...
