Great article. I agree with all of it. Not to nitpick, but $100 trillion over what period of time? The number can be made larger or smaller by merely changing that one variable. All I am saying is that if you want the amount to have an impact, you have to be more specific.

No .. I’m not talking about the fiscal cliff, nor am I talking about the almost $100 trillion in unfunded liabilities we face as a nation. Iran and a nuke? Yeah .. that’s serious all right, but I’m told that we are messin’ with Iran right now in ways that you couldn’t even imagine – ways that could derail their nuclear plans for some time to come. Is the real problem our sagging economy? An oncoming second recession? The growth of government dependency? Sure … all of those are problems and all are difficult to deal with … but they pale...
