The 2009 Officual National Debt

Those who have stated the Official Debt of 2009 is $1.4 Trillion must have failed math. A simple first grader given the time can calculate the difference between two numbers. The two numbers I refer to is the total debt reported by the US Treasury Department on September 30, 2008 and September 30, 2009.

It does not take a rocket scientist or college graduate to calculate the difference between two values. In fact, it does not take even a high school graduate. In fact this math is taught in first grade.

The national debt on September 30, 2008 stood at $10,024,724,896,912 ($10.024 Trillion).
The national debt on September 30, 2009 stood at $11,909,829,003,512 ($11.909 Trillion).
Total 2009 deficit of $1,885,104,106,599 ($1.9 Trillion)

Trust but Verify, obviously something the news media does not do.

I hear 'ya, biuddy.
I think what ALL of us bloggers should do is add a widget with the NATIONAL DEBT CLOCK (or whatever they call it these days).

I know I can't watch it for more than a minute...the numbers rise SO damn fast!
