Question of the Week #42 – 2013: Culture

Question of the Week #42 – 2013: Culture

On this Labor Day 2013, what is our national debt, and what is our individual share of that debt?

My two cents (but please share yours):

I think each of us should check the U. S. debt clock at least once a month and become familiar with most if not all of the numbers on this chart. Here’s the debt clock link: .


  1. You are absolutely right, Ashley. We should all keep the grotesque magnitude of this debt in our minds. We should also remember that when this current President took office the debt was slightly under $10 trillion. He has single-handedly increased it to nearly $17 trillion. Our nation cannot remain a viable nation with this sort of foolishness going on.

    • Thank you very much, David. We should also continue tracking the U. S. national debt and population when we get our country out of debt. I believe we should handle national finances with the same tender care as our personal finances. Cheers, Ashley

  2. Funny how this was in my spam box, which I was just checking. I never knew you had sent this one. And I get your other Questions of the Week. Makes me even more suspicious that the government is tracking all email using key words or phrases of some sort so people don’t receive them. Or maybe because you put the link in and that’s being tracked to seenot just how many informed people are out there, but WHO we are.

    • Hi Julie, I’m sorry for the glitch. I think the reason the picoblog landed in your spam box is because I updated from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1. I had several friends show up needing to be re-approved in WordPress. Cheers, Ashley

      • Whew! Good to know. 🙂

      • Cheers, Julie. 🙂
