Our National Debt –

This morning on “Meet the Press” David Gregory was discussing the national debt when they flashed this on the screen.
Via Kristinn:

Rick VanMeter posted a photo of the faulty Meet the Press debt clock fail on Twitter.

The actual debt is $16.4 trillion dollars.

No wonder liberals aren’t worried about the debt crisis…
They don’t even know what it is!

    And what do you think is going to happen ? Their going to raise the debt ceiling allowing even more and more and more debt to be placed on every slave in this country and every generation that follows, while the richest get richer and the poor get poorer. There will never be a middle class again. They are wiping it out. Every one wants to post, write articles that this administration has taken over every corner of our judicial, congress, schools, media, voting, public oppinoin, yet that’s all anyone does is sit by and write. Cases are being denied, money is being laundered, media is being corrupted to report lies and only report news that will benefit their corruption. The schools are play grounds for the infiltration of their agendas. We have continued to allow it all to get along with the ones that were not what this country was made from. We allowed them to sway us and what adventurely happened they over took us. What did these people do when they did not have their way ? What did they achieve when they did infiltrate the fabric of this nation. These people did not play fair, they did not play by the rules, they were not polite and nicey nice to the people that were in charge back then. They played hard ball, they hit them with every thing they had, even violence, scaring them into compliance and now we have a nation that is at their beck and call, afraid of their own shadows. Why because we had criminals that went around harassing, corrupting this nation into compliance and threatening people if they did not comply their would be only one option. They have blackmailed hundreds of people, making false claims for anyone that did not fall in line. Cooking the books on anyone that refused to obey their agendas. These people do not play, they are brutal. If you want to think that this is your answer, sitting here blogging, writing how upset you are about what has happened to your country and think that it’s all going to change because you write these posts, think again. No one gives a rats ass what you write, what you give a dam about. They will take what is yours and what is not yours come hell or high water. They will force you to comply by laws that were never meant to ever be written and will laugh all the way to the bank. They will imprison you for crimes you never committed, because they can, just to make an example of you. They will rig every last election and every future election along with the judiciary in their favor for their own gains. It’s all about the control and the money and who gets the most of what you and I will work for. We work for them, not ourselves or our families and our futures. We work for them and their profits and bank accounts. So listen to yourselves and make wise choices, because you will all go down in history as the nation that knew it was coming and did nothing to stop it. You all aided and abetted the greatest take over in the history of the world. Your all sitting by allowing this to happen and refuse to stop it…

    It’s NBC! Did you expect anything other than this? They have the stupid vote targeted and sadly there are more of them than us.

  • BurmaShave

    [The MSM] don’t even know what [the national debt] is!

    Be assured: they know what the the national debt is; they are just lying as usual.

  • Fritz

    That’s OK. Not too long ago, when Letterman (I think) asked Obama what the debt was, the Preezy didn’t know either.

  • saveus

    obama said he doesn’t know what the debt is ( and doesn’t
    care)so why should his cheerleaders know? (anything)

  • Eric Mertz

    You know, I am going to cut some slack on this one and assume they are using stock footage. Why? Its NBC, intellectual laziness is the name of the game over there.

    Liars who lie and the liars that fall for it, the left.

    It is important to focus on the fact that it is intentional.

    Once highly respected as the Fourth Estate dedicated to truth and the preservation of our democratic liberties, our media works for the destruction of our country and thus the end of our civil liberties.

    It is a continuous and unending assault relying on false narratives given by Progressive talking heads, who fantasize about a Progressive Utopia based on their Socialist/ Communist worldview. They continue in their charade despite the fact that historical evidence shows nothing but pain and suffering is connected to any government that adopts Socialism/Communism.

    Stop watching the enemy; go to the Reuters and/or the AP website. Go to the international papers posted on the web. Search the web.

    Don’t give our enemies the space between your ears, and certainly don’t invite them into your home.

  • Look-Out

    Make them explain how they came up with that “clock” —

    How OLD is it? EXPOSE the LIARS.

    They do it because they’re NEVER held to account.

    #10 Fritz is right.

    “We had a surplus when Bill Clinton was president,” Obama said. “When I walked into office, we had a trillion dollar deficit, debt had mounted, and then we had to take a bunch of emergency measures: Saving the auto industry, making sure that the financial system got back on track.”

    “So now what we’ve got to do is pare down that deficit, get that debt under control,” he went on. “The only way we’ve ever been able to do that effectively is in a balanced way.”

    Letterman then followed up by asking how much the national debt was when Obama took office.

    “I don’t remember what the number was precisely,” Obama said, adding later, “We don’t have to worry about it short term. But it is a problem long-term and even medium-term.”

    According to the Treasury Department website, the national debt was $10.6 trillion on the day Barack Obama took office. Today, the national debt is $16 trillion. ”

    Ding, ding, ding! We have a winner. It was a stock photo of the debt clock, used as a graphic.

    And it might actually mean something if Gregory hadn’t, moments prior, shown the current debt, along with spending, revenue and the resulting deficit. He even went further, and put it into terms of a household. But don’t let the facts spoil your “got-cha” moment.

    And who would trust what Meet the Press says – they are a mouthpiece for the Obama Propaganda Corpse

    Is Gregory out on bail???
