Merry F**king Christmas From Barack Obama


Ace of Spades HQ:

What Is Your Share of the National Debt?

Short answer:

I don’t know. You are [fucked|screwed|pooched].

I Don’t Know

Why bother reading further when the author seemingly doesn’t know the exact figure?

One problem is that the number is a moving target. Can you guess which direction the number is going?

Taking a look

This has to be a relatively simple exercise in arithmetic. One could divide a 14 digit number by a 9 digit number by hand, but I’ll do it with a calculator, thank you.

Stopping by at I get the current debt figure of $16,395,173,356,211.

Divide that by 314,982,978 people in the US and I get $52,050.98 per man, woman and child. Got a spare $52K, Bunky?

That figure, however, is wrong. It includes the all Americans, the majority of whom are non-taxpayers. It includes my retired parents and in-laws, who are contributing very little to the national treasury at this point of their lives. Let’s run the numbers again.

Take the current national debt, now at $16,395,177,588,347, divide by a US workforce of 143,963,180 and we get $113,884.52 per taxpayer. You have a job, right? Sorry if you don’t. At this point, I would still rather be pulling the wagon than riding it.

So we have this nice ballpark figure of $114K, but it still isn’t correct. No matter how average a person may be, they are still (an) individual(s). Are you washing dishes 32 hours per week? Your share is going to be lower. Are you a fund manager or an investment banker? Your share will be higher. People with more income pay more income tax. But we knew that.

To be fair, Barack Obama is not responsible for all of that amount. He is only to blame for half of it.

If this isn’t on your list of grievances it sure oughta be. But don’t worry too much. You’ll probably die long before you finish paying your share. It’s your kids and grandkids that are really screwed.

Meanwhile, Obama is on a $4 million vacay in Hawaii.

Merry Fucking Christmas. Happy Fucking New Year too!

    Ever notice how rarely anyone on the left mentions the national debt? They pretend like it doesn’t exist.

      that was my first thought when I read that. You would think that the English would really understand ” loose lips sink ships”.

  3. HELENK says:

    well i guess it is a good thing that it is obama’s national security team and not America’s national security team

  4. New Orleans v Dallas into overtime as the Cowboys score 2 TD in 3 minutes. Bloodbath coming…

    if backtrack carries through with his threat to make the state of the union address an attack on republicans, what would happen if they all got up and walked out in the middle of it???

    BREAKING: The Colts are playoff-bound! They defeated Kansas City 20-13

    no one is paying attention to this, but it could really screw the economy

    “That figure, however, is wrong. It includes the all Americans, the majority of whom are non-taxpayers.”

    He’s wrong about that, because the part nobody ever talks about is the INTEREST on the national debt. He’s only counting the principal. The interest on the national debt is something we all get to pay, taxpayer or not, rich or poor. If you buy groceries or pay rent, built right into those costs is the interest on the national debt. That’s why a loaf of bread used to cost 40 cents and now costs 4 dollars. That’s why a small house used to cost 2 grand and is now well over 200 grand, depending where you live. That’s why gas used to be 65 cents and is now 3.65 cents.

    So, we don’t just owe 52 grand each, we also owe the interest on 16 trillion which is incorporated right into the cost of our goods. It’s an invisible tax, but it’s a tax all of us are forced to pay.

      Awwww wonderful ! My grandson is in Hawaii visiting his dad ,and I miss him this Christmas , but I am sure he is happy to see his dad.
      I am sure he is nowhere near the 4 million dollar vacation guy .

    • elliesmom says:

      What a wonderful Christmas gift for him to give everyone! My granddaughter took her first steps when her grandparents from Ohio were visiting. It was like she knew it would tickle them to see it in person.

    • HELENK says:

      are you getting roller skates for Christmas??? you will need them.

      Isn’t it fun to watch them learn and get to see the wonder in the world that most of us forgot?

    • smile says:

      He is a cutie alright. Now he will get busy checking out things on his 2 little feet. 🙂

    Perfect Christmas song for the Obamas

    some information just in time for Christmas.
    rights of e-book owners. Lot of stuff many people including me do not know

    you know, you just can’t take some people any place!!!!!!

      The French are the worst. Some Frenchman tried to blow up Chichen Itza with dynamite and Napoleon’s troops used the Sphinx for target practice for their artillery. The Spaniards were pretty bad too.

      The British and Americans looted everything they could find, but at least they considered it valuable.

  14. The list of Festivus grievances is too damn long- Axelrove. Kool-Aid. DNC. Roolz Committee. Brazile et al. Do Nothing Congresses. Corporations buying govt.
    I suppose it CAN all be boiled down to one word though.
