@aeberga Yes we have a large debt, but what most people forget is that a large portion of that debt is actually owed to ourselves. It is not all owned by foreign !$%*!$%* as most people think. A lot is owed to Social Security and other private or public !$%*!$%* within our own country. See this graph:

As you can clearly see 61% is actually owned by our own country, and it's not like we are going to send ourselves to collections LOL!

I scoff at deficits. Hey you stupid countries, can't you add and subtract?

I think all Western countries (with very few exceptions, and the US is NOT one of them) are about in the same boat. Check out http://www.usdebtclock.org/ and tell me if you still feel like grinning at Europe.

Nah - Elbonia can't be part of Europe! No self-respecting, irresponsible, broke eurozone member would ever dream of asking for less than 100 billion euros in handouts. They've got their pride, y'see ...
