35. The American people are owners of most of the US Debt.

Yep, you and me. China is way down the list. I believe we might owe them around 1 Trillion, but our government owes the american taxpayers, the 99% around 13 trillion.

I just say the pie chart a few weeks ago, but can't remember where. I was shocked. I had bought into how much we owed China; so, of course, we have to give up so much to repay China, Bullshit!

I am 71 and not the most adept at researching something I just read. Perhaps one of you can help this elderly widow and find this pie chart. IMO, it should be first page always. I am tired of this meme. We spent more on the Iraq war than we owe China. Stop buying "stuff" made in China. I try my best to follow that advice, so only get fooled when something slips by.

For instance, Cold Water Creek clothing is all made in China. I have stopped buying from them. If you read "imported" and they don't say from where, it's a pretty good bet that it is made in China. I know we all need to save money, but we can do this. Most of it is cheaply made and will wear out much faster or break a few months after. So we are not really saving money.

In addition to ruining our economy, the Chinese are horrible to their people and factories are dangerously run with child labor. No wonder all our greedy old men want the Chinese and some other countries to make our goods. No f**king rules!
