Welcome to Scary Reality.com
Many people will look at this site, rationalize "My life is good, this doesn’t affect me, why should I care? Still have my MTV, BET, ESPN"; impervious to danger, like the Captain of the Titanic steaming full speed toward the iceberg ahead.
Neither you nor I voted for a National Debt of $17.2 trillion nor the squandering so far of $11 trillion on interest payments, we are stuck cleaning up this mess.
For an overview listing of the contents-index; and a start of solutions to fix some of our problems plus a questionnaire please follow the links. This made in Washington D.C. mess did not happen overnight, but has been building up over the course of decades.
It seems that our politicians’
are somewhat confused, the reason a large number of us did not vote for Mr.
Romney and the Republicans was because President Obama and the Democrats were
viewed as the lesser of two evils, (that is a sad way to run this country).
As in science, medicine, engineering and even finance there are laws and
there are theories, one law that crosses all spectrums is the Law of Unintended
Consequences: President Clinton could never have foreseen that Monica Lewinsky
would not send her blue dress to the cleaners, but instead leave the stain as a
keepsake. The married Speaker of the House and prosecutor at President Clinton's impeachment trial, Newt Gingrich was
having an affair while airing Ms. Lewinsky’s dirty laundry. After Gingrich, came
the Speaker-designate, Representative Bob Livingston, who announced the
end of his candidacy for Speaker and his resignation
from Congress from the floor of the House after his own marital
Most people did not care, nor did they want to know about the sexual escapades of Clinton or Gingrich or Livingston. It was the Republican hypocrisy, which became known because of the Law of Unintended Consequences that really ticked people off.
Back to our debt problem
The greed, maneuvering and hypocrisy of to many elected officials is disgusting. Some of us do not suffer from amnesia, we have a $17.2 trillion debt because the Republicans took this country off the gold standard back in 1971, when Nixon was President, to pay for the War in Vietnam and this country has been living on borrowed money ever since. in 2001 instead of using the surplus money the government was taking in to pay down “our” National Debt, President Bush and the Republicans (G.O.P.) decided to run up a Strategic Deficit, never taking into consideration the law of unintended consequences, (Strategic deficit to cut programs) this plan was concocted while the Republican President Reagan was in office; because of "The Strategic Deficit" plan, the Republicans in shutting down the government, are now in the position to implement it.
Interest paid out since the start of the Reagan Republican era exceeds $11 trillion! Interest (usury) paid out for fiscal year 2012 which ended Sept. 30 2012 was $434,796,008,919; imagine the infrastructure that could have been repaired, the space programs lost, the medical research that could have been accomplished instead of tossing the people's money away on interest.
From 1940 through 1963 the highest tax rate was over 80 percent going as high as 94 percent according to the IRS site on tax rates. That is how World War II & the Korean Wars the Interstate Freeway System our bridges and the infrastructure was paid for.
President George Washington in his farewell speech warned the people of the dangers of Potentates’; Political Parties & Debt: it is too bad that the people have disregarded/ignored his sound advice!
From 2002 through
2007 our National Debt grew by a daily
average of $1.46 Billion ($5.807
Trillion 2002 to $9.007 Trillion).
For the last year of the Bush Presidency 2008 the National Debt went up $2.786 Billion per day on average ($9.007 Trillion to $10.024 Trillion).
2009, daily average hit an all time high $5,164,668,785 ($10.024 Trillion to $11.909 trillion).
2010 National Debt had $4.524 Billion per day increase ($11.909 Trillion to 13.561 Trillion.
2011, $3.366 Billion daily average rise in our National Debt ($13.561 Trillion to $14.790 Trillion).
2012, the deficit on our National Debt increased $3.495 Billion per day ($14.790 Trillion to $16.066 Trillion.
For the first 202 days of fiscal year 2013 [Oct 1, 2012 until April 30 2013] the Debt of the United States grew by $3.775 Billion per day ($16.066 Trillion to $16.828 Trillion).
The question to ask would be; how is it even possible to go from being in the hole $3.775 Billion per day every day for the first 202 days of fiscal year 2013 (Oct 1, 2012 through April 30, 2013) and then run a surplus on day 203 (May 1, 2013)?
Finally the answer to the miracle surplus on May 1, 2013
Treasury Extends Measure to Avoid Exceeding Debt Limit
By Ian Katz - Aug 2, 2013
“Debt-issuance suspension period” has ended. October 17, 2013 National Debt $16.747 trillion; October 18, 2013 National Debt $17.075 trillion. Over $328 billion increase in 24 hours.
Somebody must think We The People are stupid. If you run the Debt up but keep the numbers off the books for 169 days that is called “cooking the books”. You can attempt to feed We The People this line of crap; it might be legal, but very unethical.
If the Democrats thought fiscal year 2013 was good because the country only went backwards $680 Billion then the first month of fiscal year must be absolutely hideous; the deficit for the 31 days of October was over $408 Billion.
Unfettered "capitalism" is every bit as

Tyranny is legal when tyrants make the rules
Despite being warned, President Woodrow Wilson signed the 1913 Federal Reserve Act. A few years later he wrote:I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men. -Woodrow Wilson
History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and its issuance. -James Madison
An internal Goldman memo suggested that speculation by investors accounted for about a third of the price of a barrel of oil. A commissioner at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the federal regulator, subsequently used that estimate to calculate that speculation added about $10 per fill-up for the average American driver. Other experts have put the total, combined cost at $200 billion a year.
