I actually think it's kind of cool that the US government is in debt. I'm in debt, why shouldn't the country be? What would be sweet would be if I could sell my debt to other countries, like China or Japan. Then when I was having dinner with the people who run the US budget I could be like, "You owe money to China? No way! I owe money to China! That's crazy! We're so similar in that way."
Now they're talking about the trade defecit. I think I have the US beat on trade defecit, because I buy lots of stuff and I don't make anything.
