The only way to pay this debt off is to make the dollar worth a billion dollars and pay it off before the Market opens. Then, we would all be holding money that $100 bills would't buy penny candy, if there were such a thing. Weimar Republic all over again.

Hang in there, folks, there's a new sheriff coming January 20th. I have good feelings about the next 8 years.
