National Debt Ceiling

Note: a stack of 100 dollar bills, that equals 1 trillion dollars, will reach 62 miles high!  Or, if you paid back a loan at 1 dollar a second it would take 31.7 years to pay back 1 billion dollars... or 31,700 years to pay back 1 trillion dollars.

I.O.U.S.A.-30 Minute Version (10/01/08) [32:35]

IOUSA Solutions: Part 1 of 5

I just found this on the web. It looks like a follow-up to David Walker's (Comproller of the US, GAO) campaign to educate us to the looming National Debt. Lots of information... it is well worth the 50 minutes.

Now that more Americans and elected officials are aware of our fiscal challenges, it’s time to create solutions. I.O.U.S.A. Solutions, a follow-up special to I.O.U.S.A., is a five-part series that focuses on how we can solve our fiscal problems.

But the Banks are still doing the same stuff they have always been doing:

I am one of those "once" middle class, over 60, over educated, under-employed, semi retired, soon to be poor workers, that everyone is talking about. 
But I have a modest standard of living so I plan to give all extra donation, beyond my immediate needs, to several of my favorite charities.
