WorldNetDaily.com is reporting that if the federal budget is not cut now, the national debt within about two generations will be 600 percent of the gross domestic product.
The article goes on to state, “With the recession and the huge stimulus package added to the beginning of the baby boomers retiring, United States debt is already at 50% of gross domestic product, and is expected to grow to 80% of GDP by 2019, according to Congressional Budget Office estimates of the Obama administration budget plans as they currently stand.”
The administration is being presented with overwhelming evidence that the expansion of government programs is forcing the country to ruin, yet they show no signs of stopping. Why do they refuse to acknowledge this impending financial doom? I don’t know and I cannot in good faith believe that it is the administration’s goal to destroy the economy, but the evidence is pretty damming.
The Mandarin, whose real name is 吏恆, joined the order in 1309, and introduced the Gormogons into England during the 18th Century.
The Mandarin enjoys spending time with his pet manticore, Βάρἰκος, or Barry (who can be found in the Bestiary). When not in the Castle…well, frankly, nobody is quite sure where he goes.
The Mandarin popularized the fine art of “gut booting,” by which he delivers a powerful kick to the stomach of anyone that annoys him. Although nearly universal today, the act of gut booting or threatening someone or something with a gut boot is solely due to him.
