You guys should have let it roll over to zero, and then show it to the Chinese.

Well, that's probably a no.

I'm amazed the clock had a fallback like that, though.

**** the republicans for doing this to us. They don't care because when time comes to pay that off, they will be long gone leaving us young folk to take care of it. When the US becomes bankrupt, every US citizen will become bankrupt and have to pay out of their own pockets to handle this.

That's an encouraging thought that they think we'll need a new clock... :rolleyes:

An interesting note:

Top Ten External Debts: (all 2007 estimates)

US: $12,250,000,000,000 (per capita: $40,319 Nearly a years income based on average)

UK: $10,450,000,000,000 (per capita: $171,469 Nearly 5 times the average income)

Germany: $4,489,000,000,000 (pc: $54,498 nearly two years income)

France: $4,396,000,000,000 (pc: $68,625 Over twice the average income)

Netherlands: $2,277,000,000,000 (pc: $136,795 About 3 times the average income)

Ireland: $1,841,000,000,000 (pc: $442,961 - ouch. Nearly 10 times the national income)

Japan: $1,492,000,000,000 (pc: $11,721 About 1/3 of the average income)

Switzerland: $1,340,000,000,000 (pc: $176,745 Over 4 times the national income)

Belgium: $1,313,000,000,000 (pc: $126,202 About 4 times the average income)

We're actually going to fare very well compared to some of the other countries.

Here's an interesting thought. When we have to pay it off in the future, who do we pay to?
