Written By: Bill Finnigan  |  Posted: Wednesday, August 29th, 2012

            The word "debt" is being constantly bantered about in every facet of the media. We seemed obsessed with the "national debt" and how the next president will solve it. Frankly, the whole debate is getting tiresome, especially when used as a political "football" by less than honorable leaders. When speaking of trillions of dollars owed, it's mind-boggling to the average citizen. Whatever the outcome, the debt issue is something to take personally.
