You are both wrong. Debt is now measured in the Trillions........

Because calculators have run out of room to calculate into the trillions of anything use this handy site to help you calculate trillions of anything.

There is a Game there that Banksters play.

Spain has a lot of Gold reserves, historic coins etc.. I am sure they will push Spain to the corner and will try to steal their gold.

Nah - if you wore that they'd see some worth in it and find a way to seize it to bailout some bank somewhere ;-)  And say it was a 'transitory ausetirity confidence measure' or some other made up senstence for thievery ;-)

Some more t-shirt ideas:

"TBTF banks got trillion$ and all I got is this lousy t-shirt."

"I am raising my debt ceiling"

"We are in a transitory soft patch of green shoots"

"My green shoots need some Miracle Grow"

"Got Gold?"

"The Leprechauns stole the Pot of Gold"

I am surprised some gold dealer hasn't signed Mr. T up to hawk some bullion.  Even an online outfit could get some attention with the "I Pity the Fool..." tag line.
