US debt clock runs out of digits

October 9, 2008

That’s a lot of zero’s.

I’d like to add two more.

Obama and McCain.

America needs to start with a clean slate. Vote for an independent or one of the many small parties. A clear message must be sent to the White House.


US debt clock runs out of digits

Until last month, the clock had enough digits to measure US debt levels

The US government’s debts have ballooned so badly the National Debt Clock in New York has run out of digits to record the spiralling figure.

The digital counter marks the national debt level, but when that passed the $10 trillion point last month, the sign could not display the full amount.

The board was erected to highlight the $2.7 trillion level of debt in 1989.

The clock’s owners say two more zeros will be added, allowing the clock to record a quadrillion dollars of debt.

Douglas Durst, son of the late Seymour Durst – the clock’s inventor – hopes to replace the Manhattan clock with its lengthier replacement early next year.

For the time being, the Times Square counter’s electronic dollar sign has been replaced with the extra digit required.

For its part, the digital dollar symbol has been supplanted by a cheaper version – perhaps a sign of the times for the American economy.

Some economists believe the $700bn bail-out plan for ailing US financial institutions could send the national debt level to $11 trillion.

Obama world tour reaches France

July 25, 2008

Read the Green Agenda in order to understand the true meaning of Obama’s words.

From the BBC

US Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama has arrived in Paris for a brief visit on his world tour ahead of the November election.

He flew into the French capital a day after a public speech in Berlin, where he called for a renewed US partnership with Europe.

He was applauded by a crowd of 200,000 in scenes reminiscent of a pop concert.

Mr Obama is meeting French President Nicolas Sarkozy before flying to London, the final stop of his tour.

Their meeting is taking place at the presidential Elysee Palace, and the two men will hold a joint news conference before Mr Obama leaves for the UK.

His visit to Paris will last just a few hours, a fact noted by French reporters contrasting it to the long day he spent in Berlin, where he met German leaders before making his speech in the central Tiergarten Park, a venue for big public festivities.

Praise from Sarkozy

As in Germany, the presidential contender enjoys high public ratings in France.

Mardell blog: Obama woos Europe

US Republican presidential hopeful John McCain met Mr Sarkozy at the Elysee Palace in March.

A spokesman for the Arizona senator has accused Mr Obama of turning his tour into a “premature victory lap”.

Earlier, Mr Sarkozy said he had always believed his “friend” Mr Obama would clinch the Democratic presidential nomination.

“While the 20th Century taught us that we share a common destiny, the 21st has revealed a world more intertwined than at any time in human history,” Mr Obama said.

“But the burdens of global citizenship continue to bind us together.”

Mr Obama said partnership and co-operation among nations was “not a choice”, but “the only way to protect our common security and advance our common humanity”.
