Happy $15 trillion!

We're #1 -- the biggest debtor nation in the world, and about to cross 100% debt/GDP -- and that's not counting off-balance sheet garbage like Fannie/Freddie debt, student loan guarantees, Social Security and Medicare liabilities, etc.

And as China starts to back away from holding our bad debt, the Dirty Fed has stepped in to print money and become the largest Treasury holder.

How convenient to be able to spend at will and not have to actually borrow money from real investors. This will surely end well.

I mean, just look at the glow on The Bernanke's face...


I talk a lot about inflation. But today was the first time in my life I actually used a dollar bill as toilet paper.
