Even The Chinese Can Predict The Future

This was my fortune when I last had Chinese Food.

I wonder how you say National Debt in Chinese?

國債: National Debt.

Don't worry we're not going to demand it all right away. We'll set up a payment plan. And say keep the interest rate at 4.25%? That's more than fair. Of course late payments will incur penalties.

If you cannot make the payments we can work together to find other means of payment. Like the sale of national infrastructure? Maybe Amtrak? That will pay down a significant amount of debt.

Well anyway just a few thoughts.

Great post and comments!

It's quite simple really. Foolhardy foreign policy equals record debt and deficit.

Instead you opted for "Mission Accomplished."

And that's why you get the kind of fortune cookies you get.
