The Stark Reality Of National Debt
Rep. Pete Stark (D-CA) explains to an interviewer that the size of the national debt is a good measure of the wealth of our country. The more debt we have, the wealthier nation we will be Stark explains. Stark then goes on to denigrate the interviewer for attending a no-nothing college and not having any basic understanding of economics because he questioned his premise. That's what he said before telling the interviewer repeatedly to shut up and then ending the interview by telling him to get the fuck out of his office before he threw him out the window. I'm telling you, folks, we're screwed as a nation. The only people who get elected to government any more are pompous assholes like Stark with distorted views of economic realities. Stark has been a member of Congress for 36 years. Shockingly, the guy holds a degree from MIT!
