ran 1.4 miles

Now that’s a mile marker worth mentioning. Today our national debt raised the bar on disappointment. If that’s not enough to cast a black cloud over our collective American future, here is something else---the Fed was recently audited for the first time in its nearly one hundred year history. Turns out that between December of 2007 and June of 2010, $16 trillion (yes, $16,000,000,000,000.00) was spent bailing out world banks, corporations, and governments. The deeper this rabbit hole goes the more daunting the task becomes of making sense of anything. $16 trillion is $1 trillion more than our national debt! And this money was spent all over the world while America has plenty of its own problems. Check out this article. There are tables of where this money in the hundreds of billions by hundreds of billions went. This audit was led by Ron Paul, Alan Grayson, Jim DeMint, and Bernie Sanders. This is Bernie Sanders’ Senate webpage and it has more information on this abuse of common sense.

738.9 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day79.
