Trivia 295




I want this to be information one just usually doesn’t hear.  If you have I would like to know if you haven’t all the better you’ve learned something today.  With that being said here is the information for you to consider today.


While we are on the issue of money take this scenario.  If you spent $1.00 every second of every day you would spend around 1 million in 12 days.  To reach the figure of 1 trillion it would take you around 31,000 years.  Now think of the debt the U.S. is in and figure out if we never had any more debt how long it would take just to pay off what we owe now.  I don’t think I’ll live that long.  I also fear what this world will look like by then and if the U.S. will still exist.  Your thoughts




Now go out and tell the world of your new found knowledge.  Smile it will make people wonder what you’ve been up to.  Join us tomorrow for another journey into the wonderful world of Wordsmith.  Click on the link below.  Who knows you may learn something along the way and some of the words may even bring a smile to your face.

Good morning James,

Until we get back to the basics of our Founding Fathers we will stay in this boat!

Make yourself a great day.

Something I try never to think about.  I only worry about what's in my pocket, which is easy enough to count.

Good evening James. I think the handwriting is on the wall. We owe too much to China and the debt is due in 2019. Can we spell Depression?

Good morning James. My head is spinning and I am hungry so I'm thinking about breakfast instead.

thanks for stopping by and making a comment.  Like I said I fear for the U.S. and the direction we are headed.

Well Ms. Barbara I see I got your attention.  Now remember we elected those who makes the rules.  Sad thing is we keep reelecting them so who's fault is it really?

Did you know you could fit the entire population of the world in Texas and each individual would have about 1000 sq ft to live in. So a family of 4 would have 4000 sq ft to live in. that would make the rest of the world free to farm.

You lost me at blowing a million bucks in 12 days. I could do it, though.

I remember when there were only millionaires on the Forbes 500 richest people.  Now there are none, only billionaires need apply.  We're paying $38,000,000 for '65 Ferrari's for Heaven's sake.  We're gonna take you higher aren't just some song lyrics anymore James.

I just want them to repave all our streets in our suburbs the way they did years ago. The cities just have too many potholes and sinkholes today. The aad thing is our cities, towns, villages, subdivision, and communities are broke. We are in debt:-((
