Dennis Gartman of the Gartman Letter:
THE US DEBT CLOCK.ORG: Ok, lastMy advice; throw all the bastards out of office. Every representative and every Senator both parties. Vote against all incumbents and throw the bums out!
Thursday as the year and the decade were ending, the
sum total of the outstanding debt per taxpayer here in
the US was $111,290 and the total debt outstanding
was $12,130,035,400,000. Last evening it stood at
$111,597/taxpayer on a total debt of
$12,167,478,707,193. So, in the past week the nation
went another $3,744,330,000 in debt, So for you
taxpayers out there, what did you get for the additional
$307 more you owe, incurred in only five days? Our
guess is very little; but then again, what do we know?
