U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time

Apparently the national debt goes up 1,700,000,000.00 every 24 Hrs. I am pretty sure it is much more than that because I am a firm contributor. My student loans, unpaid doctor bills, hell even some unpaid utilities. When I signed a 2yr contract with sprint and got my iPhone for $45.00 instead of the $750.00 they should be charging.  I am only one person! Can you imagine what four or five of me could do? How about a nation! Well according to the U.S Department of Treasury  its 16 trillion and growing. U.S. National Debt Clock : Real Time.

What is the National Debt?

The term national debt refers to direct liabilities of the United States Government. There are several different concepts of debt that are at various times used to refer to the national debt:

•Public debt is defined as public debt securities issued by the U.S. Treasury.  U. S. Treasury securities primarily consist of marketable Treasury securities (i.e., bills, notes and bonds), savings bonds and special securities issued to state and local governments.  A portion is debt held by the public and a portion is debt held by government accounts.

•Debt held by the public excludes the portion of the debt that is held by government accounts.

•Gross federal debt is made up of public debt securities and a small amount of securities issued by government agencies.

Debt held by the public is the most meaningful of these concepts and measures the cumulative amount outstanding that the government has borrowed to finance deficits.

Its 2013, and we all know it but me, well that’s what it seems like, because I’m a bit behind. I only mean behind in the technology world, this is my first official blog, and I’m wondering what do I blog about?  Eh, I know you’re wondering why is she blogging now? Why not before. I’m wondering the same thing. Well it’s mainly because this was the easy way out.

Easy way out from what?!

The easy way out from my marketing teacher, the assignment is to create a blog or die in misery with a load more work, so like any smart college student I took the easy route.

But how easy is this?

What am I supposed to blog about? Just anything? But what’s anything in today’s world, I feel like everything has already been taken, talked about, and blogged about. Hot topics like Miley Cyrus and Syria are defiantly over discussed. For some reason those are the only things I can think about, main media headlines.

Can someone please help me figure out this blog thing, someone besid2234703822_fa7426e59f_mes David Meerman Scott.
