A group or individual named IowaHawk came up with a very clever way to depict the avalanche of US debt that, thankfully, Washington DC is starting to think about.
Of course, you remember the old Tennessee Ernie Ford tune “16 Tons,” with the refrain
You load sixteen tons, what do you get?
Another day older and deeper in debt.
When you hear
Saint Peter, don’t you call me, ’cause I can’t go;
I owe my soul to the company store.
It gives all new meaning to death taxes…
