National Debts Don't Matter as much as WingNuts SAY They Do

TeaBaggers are still trying to convince everyone that the NATIONAL DEBT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IN HUMAN HISTORY.

Lately, some of the whackier TeaBaggery has suggested we address our "national problem" by selling off a few National Parks, maybe having a few bake sales and car washes etc etc. This small, single-minded view of the State of our Union isn't helping TeaBagger popularity any more than some of then their latest Boehn-headed moves, but more importantly they aren't seeing the big picture: The nice thing about having a fake-money economy is that we can bring it back to life ourselves. We can literally wave a magic wand and initiate Infrastructure Building and Maintenance, Raise the Minimum Wage and form Emergency-Based Employment Stop-gap measures like the CCC.  These are just some of the things FDR did to get us out of the Great Depression.

The Tea Party is using National-Debt-Single-Mindedness to make a power-grab, nothing less. We are watching a coup d'etat attempt on our country by a relentless, impatient, and power-grabbing enemy, that appears to be failing at the moment.

Here are some non-drama-based Fun-facts on the National Debt:
