    Federal Debt Up $1.3 Trillion Since Last Thanksgiving; $10,137 Per Household

    So much winning.


    The federal debt has increased by $1,303,466.578.471.45 since last Thanksgiving, according to data released by the U.S. Treasury.

    That is the largest Thanksgiving-to-Thanksgiving increase in the debt in nine years. The last time the debt increased more from Thanksgiving to Thanksgiving was in 2010, when it increased by $1,785,995,360,978.10.

    It also equals approximately $10,137.48 per household in the United States.


    At the close of business on November 21, 2018—the day before last Thanksgiving—the federal debt stood at $21,769,263,916,844.09. At the close of business yesterday, it stood at $23,072,730,495,315.54.

    That equaled an increase of $1,303,466,578.471.45.

    That Thanksgiving-to-Thanksgiving increase in the debt worked out to approximately $10,137.48 for each of the 128,579,000 households the Census Bureau estimates there are in the United States in 2019.

    The full federal debt of $23,072,730,495,315.54 now equals $179,444 per household.

    I didn't start out thinking that anti-vax people were fools or impervious to reason, it's from my experience here that I now think that.

    Anti-vaxxers, responsible for a 30 percent uptick in totally preventable diseases in the world, have blood on their hands. They shouldn't be considered civilized members of society. If they refuse to listen to a century of scientific studies confirming time and time again that vaccination is an unquestionable good for humanity, then it's time for us to start treating anti-vaxxers as what they are: dangerous and worthy of shame and condemnation. If we can't convince anti-vaxxers to change their minds, we must attach enough social stigma to the delusion that agnostics cease to join them.

    But on average it gets less bigger under Republicans, if you exclude the years where it got bigger under a Republican
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    No, no, no. You're just not getting it again. Republicans are always better. Besides, there are more important things than money. You know, all those terrible oppressive things those in government always find to spend all that extra money on.

    The conspiracy to subsidize taco trucks with federal tax dollars, for instance?

    Of course, an alternative explanation is that tacos taste good.
