The Outstanding Public Debt as of 26 Sep 2008 at 04:49:35 AM GMT (8:49 Pacific) is: $9,790,849,740,457.10

The estimated population of the United States is 304,795,998, so each citizen's share of this debt is $32,122.63.

The National Debt has continued to increase an average of $2.16 billion per day since September 28, 2007. (From this site).

So what’s another $700 billion? It’s only $2,300 for every man woman or child – working, elderly or in diapers – to magically solve what woes our economy. Coming from an administration so highly effective at winning wars, rebuilding cities, and being fiscally responsible, I highly doubt he’ll do much for the Average Joe. And a society so effectively dumbed down and not really caring deserves what it gets anyway.

But on a brighter note, the Oyser Run, a big biker rally, is in town this weekend - the biggest in the Northwest. The weather is supposed to be great, and something like 10,000 bikes converge up on the town of Anacortes, a beautiful one hour ride. So today I replaced some fuel filters and worked on the leaking carb. Possibly something with the floats.
