Eyes, over, pulled, wool, your... more fear factor

A French blogger has a page comparing the French and American debt... in real time!
See http://beaugency.over-blog.com/article-les-dettes-fran-aises-et-americaines-comparees--43250165.html

The counters and graphs on the page are scary but only if you are sucked into believing this money is real. I laughed when I saw it because it's another display of "blinding us with science" - the debt is created artificially and could be destroyed artificially by resetting all those counters back to zero and stopping them. But no, people will enjoy being impressed by the obscene amounts being projected, be suckered into the drama of last minute, tenter hook deals to save us from financial meltdown. As the beautiful Bill Hicks said, it's just a ride. And, furthermore to paraphrase the words of Woody Allen in the Front
Fellas, I don't recognise the right of these authorities to impose these sort of burdens on us, and furthermore, you can all go £'$k yourselves
