GOOD NEWS FOR U.S., WE HAVE TIME TO PAY
For those worried about the U.S. debt load following two years of massive bailouts and never-ending backstops, good news: looks like we might just qualify for a pretty, pretty damn good payment plan. After all, just look at France. France is still paying off a debt it contracted in 1738, according to a piece on The Daily Crux. "And think of all the changes in French governments since then: monarchies of various "houses", revolutions, Empires, five republics, German occupation...and I'm leaving out other forms."
