I'm very sorry, but if you think the posts there are more original than the ones here, I truly think there's something wrong with you.

As someone who's taken first-year economics, I feel as if I have the authority to say some things on this topic:
1. Inflation - $75 million then is worth less now than then. About 4 times less, which is not much, but it's important.
2. Economic growth - It's important to consider the debt as a percent of the size of the national economy, as this tells us how serious of a problem it is in terms of how heavily the government would have to tax to make it back. The economy has grown over 1000x inflation-adjusted since 1800. This means that if the 1795 debt was adjusted for inflation and economy size, it would be worth about $300 Billion.
3. Deficit spending - Running a deficit during hard economic times avoids worse economic times. This takes the form of both tax cuts and government spending, both of which help the economy. These tactics are why there hasn't been another great depression. Whether you agree with the form of the Obama stimulus, the current recession would have been much worse without it.
In conclusion, it is true that the current debt is much worse than ever before, but the time for austerity is not now.

If the baby is human, then abortion is murder. Should we be worried about protecting murderer's?

really, what this whole argument comes down to is your definition of "human." Is my finger a human? It has the same number of cells and the same ability to think as an embryo in its early stages. If I cut off my finger, am I murdering a human life?

I have lots of fun while sober, then even more fun while not sober. Just because you drink/smoke weed doesn't automatically make you incapable of having fun while sober.

This is the scariest dream i've ever had:
My family and I are watching TV at home when suddenly the show cuts to a news program. A horrified-looking reporter blurts out that in one day, a massive storm will tear across the entire world, causing a flood so massive that everyone on earth will die, either from drowning or due to the intense wind. The US government is giving out tickets to a spaceship that will transport people to safety, leaving from a city near my house.

The next day, my family drives to the ship, but the attendant tells us there are only enough spots left to offer us four tickets. My family has 5 people, so one of us will be left behind. My little brother, the attendant tells us, is too small for the seats on the ship, so he will have to be the one. Refusing to let my brother die alone, we draw straws, and I am chosen to stay behind with him.

The two of us walk home as the storm gathers, and from my room, we look out the window until the rain becomes too intense to see. My brother, too young to fully understand the situation, asks with tears in his eyes, "are we going to die?"

"Yes," I reply.

This might sound a bit weird, but I want to kill someone. Not a specific person, I just want to feel the felling of killing someone. Of course I will never do it, but I want to.

Ex-slaves gave themselves the name "Freeman" after being freed when slavery was abolished. Hence the name Freeman.

maybe what you think right now were the wrong turns actually led you to a better life than those supposed "right" turns.

That post is so insensitive. You wouldn't even be able to survive one week in a country where extreme poverty (less than one dollar a day) affects over 99% of the population and you just laugh about it on this site. Pat yourself on the back big boy! It may be a joke but we should not laugh about this if we want things to change in our world !
