U.S. RECORD LEVELS OF DEBT – WHO CARES ?

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

 

Conservative economists tell us the only way we can work through all the debt that is piling up is through growth in our economy (3% or more) if spending is not reduced.    The tax reform proposals   that congress are considering seems to be our only hope as entitlement  spending continues to take up more and more of our budgets. (no one seems to want to cut entitlements  !)  If you feel strongly about our rising debt, contact your representatives and tell them that lower tax rates and tax reform are urgently needed to spur growth in our economy.   If no action is taken, one day, this debt bubble will burst and our children and grandchildren will find it impossible to dig themselves out of the mountain of debt we are creating.       Nancy     

U.S. Record Levels Of Debt – Who Cares?

Editor’s note: This article first appeared at Forbes.com.

Do you remember the band Chicago’s 1970 single, “Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is?” I thought of it the other day in connection with the U.S. debt problem, except I tweaked the lyrics: “Does anybody really know how much debt there is? Does anybody really care?”

Indeed, there are oceans of red ink all around, but the collective response of Americans is massive indifference. It isn’t because the problem isn’t being reported.  All year long, the financial press has dutifully reported record levels of debt, but all the public does is yawn – and continue to borrow. Here are some 2017 headlines:

“Americans now have the highest credit-card debt in U.S. history,” Marketwatch.com, Aug. 8

“Student Loan Debt in 2017: A $1.3 Trillion Crisis,” Forbes.com, Feb. 21

“A record 107 million Americans have car loans,” CNN Money, May 19

“U.S. Household Debt Hit Record in First Quarter,” The Wall Street Journal, May 17 (according to the Federal Reserve, household debt rose $114 billion to another new record in the second quarter)

“Corporate debt is at new highs…,” CNBC.com, April 11

WHITE HOUSE PETITIONS

Saturday, September 2nd, 2017

WE THE PEOPLE – YOUR VOICE IN THE WHITE HOUSE 

petitions.whitehouse.gov/

 

THIS URL is important.  There are various petitions on the White House site…many are from left wingers…but there are ones there we should ALL think about signing. The one at the very end is the one re Hillary’s emails.  There are others such as declaring Black Lives Matter for what it really is and one for Soros….to indicate what HE’s doing.  I have no clue what the ramifications will be for putting your name on such a petition but the Hillary one is certainly one that needs support.

THE NEWS YOU DIDN’T HEAR

Wednesday, June 7th, 2017

 

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

The News You Didn’t Hear

Reporters only want to talk about Russia, instead of what Team Trump is getting done.

June 2, 2017

 

Here is what Americans this week were told counted as “news”: Jared Kushner’s past meetings. Russians. James Comey’s upcoming testimony. Russians. Hillary Clinton’s latest conspiracy theories. Russians. Bob Mueller’s as-yet-nonexistent investigation (into Russians). Kathy Griffin, Mr. Met and, of course, “covfefe.” Total words printed on these subjects? At least a duodecillion.

Here’s what actually happened this week, the “news” that holds real consequences for real Americans:

• Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke signed an order to begin reopening Alaska’s National Petroleum Reserve to oil and gas exploration, reversing the Obama administration’s ideologically driven 2013 shutdown. The order even aims at opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to production—a move that is decades overdue. This could not only buck up the listless Alaskan economy but cement the U.S. as an oil and gas powerhouse.

• In related news, the Dakota Access Pipeline finally went live.

• The Fish and Wildlife Service took steps that may stop the Obama administration’s last-minute endangered-species listing for the Texas Hornshell, a freshwater mussel. That listing, based on outdated science, threatens significant harm to the Texas economy and was done over the protest of state officials and local industry.
