No Matter How You Slice It...

...we're still in trouble.

The image above is an "old school" pie chart of the 2010 Federal Budget.  Two days ago, the New York Times came up with a cool, interactive graphic for the proposed 2013 Federal Budget.

Computer graphic coolness notwithstanding, our defecit issue is a looming danger.  Unfortunately, the $16 trillion+ is so large it's almost beyond comprehension.

Someone at got smart and boiled down our defecit issue, in a way that even a liberal can understand.

At a glance, you can see that a household operating on this kind of budget is racing towards bankruptcy and foreclosure. 

And speaking of liberals, at least one someone at the WaPo isn't happy with the on-going shell-game.  We may be working for the Chinese long before 2030.
