QOTD 2011-07-22 – Even more perspective on the national debt

A good visual representation, using $100 bills, can be found here.

They also mention something else that’s really frightening, concerning the fact that we’re measuring our debt in trillions of dollars.

If you spent $1 million a day since Jesus was born, you would have not spent $1 trillion by now

Think about that. If you spent a million dollars a day, every day, for over 2000 years, you would not have spent one fifteenth of the current national debt. Not the budget, just the debt.

If you’re not worried about that, you’re either delusional or not paying attention.
