  1. I have a friend who still seems to think that our economy is “just fine”. I told him the next time I saw him, I was gonna bring him the “math” to show him how bad things really are. He actually believes the debt is around 20% of our GDP. I think he’s been getting his information off Wikipedia or MSNBC, because I can’t figure out where he got that number.
