Glenn Beck is a moron

I agree that Glenn can be a bit of a moron at times and I don't agree with all of his views ... but I posted this video to drive home the point that the deficit and the corresponding debt are totally and absolutely out of control and need desparately to be curbed. At the rate of current spending in President Obama's proposed 10-year plan, the National Debt, which is now almost $11 Trillion will come close to doubling again in 4 (count that) ... 4 years! As a normal, everyday American, I know we cannot afford that.

And you are using information from a moron like Glen Beck to prove your point?

Okay, Anonymous ... you don't want to reveal your identity, but you want to trash the messenger. Well, you may not like Glenn as the messenger for this particular message, but at least he was willing to lend his voice to make a statement about the rapidly ballooning U.S. National Debt. Even China's Premier cautioned Americans to take a serious look at our borrowing habits last week in remarks he made. The debt is now over $11 Trillion and rising, and Congress just raised the debt ceiling to $12.104T when they passed the latest stimulus bill. At the current rate of spending, they'll have to raise that ceiling again before year end. Check out this chart posted at zfacts ... is that a better reference for you? Or is any reference illustrating the ballooning of the National Debt not good enough for you?
