Why A Trillion Dollar Debt is Horrible

So this morning I decided to listen to my husband give a radio interview via the phone. Needless to say, I was so impressed with him. And more than a little frightened.

He explained why we should be worried about our trillions in debt with this - "the difference between a billion and a trillion is huge and we should be very worried when our government starts talking about needing trillions of dollars. Let's put it this way; a billion seconds is 32 years, a trillion seconds is 32,000 years."

Frickin' frackin' YIKES.
