Lets see now...under Obama stewardship, the United States of America's total national debt, including all unfunded liabilities, amounts to around a nice round figure like $105 TRILLION smackaroos. Not only is this figure almost beyond comprehension, it is also beyond the total ability of the entire human race currently occupying this planet, especially since the entire planetary Gross Planetary Product of the human race is estimated to be around $100 TRILLION.

The $11 trillion difference -- this year’s true federal deficit -- is 10 times larger than the official deficit and roughly as large as the entire stock of official debt in public hands."

On top of saying shotguns are better to use if you want to hit someone, Biden also said the administration's new push isn't gun control but "gun safety." Biden also argued that because assault weapons aren't used often to kill people, they should be banned.

"It is true that the vast majority of gun deaths in America are not a consequence of the use of an assault...
