When you consider the 16 trillion debt, arguably it is now (bankrupt).

The real number is $222 trillion!

Not possible.

bank·rupt/ˈbaNGkˌrəpt/
Adjective: (of a person or organization) Declared in law unable to pay outstanding debts: "the company was declared bankrupt". Noun: A person judged by a court to be insolvent, whose property is taken and disposed of for the benefit of creditors.

So the US cannot ever, under any circumstances be found incapable of paying it's obligations to foreign creditors in a manner they deem acceptable?  Or is your point that since we can print dollars we will always be able to pay?

I heard he was murdered because he wanted to shut down the Federal Reserve. I guess a similar reason...he wanted to strengthen the dollar.
I thought this was interesting:


One of my Rock Idols...the Late Great Frank Zappa once wrote a song...here are the lyrics.

I am gross and perverted, I am obsessed and deranged, I have existed for years but, very little has changed
I'm a tool of the government and industry too...for I am destined to rule and regulate you
I may be vile and pernicious, but you can't walk away, I'll make you think I'm delicious with the stuff that I say
I'm the best you can get...have you guessed me yet?
I'm the slime oozing out from your TV set
You will obey me while I lead you and eat the garbage that I feed you
Until the day that I don't need you
Don't cry for help, no one will heed you
Your mind is totally controlled, it has been stuffed into my mold
And you shall do as you are told, unitl the rights to you are sold!
