U.S. National Debt Now Stands at $1.1 Million per Taxpayer 

New figures released by the U.S. Department of the Treasury reveal that the total national debt has surpassed $17 trillion, up from the $10.6 trillion it was back in 2009.  “These new figures are staggering,” Supervisor Buster Johnson stated.  “The number one job of any government is to create a balanced budget.  The federal government needs to come together to stop this out of control spending.  They claim to have lowered the 2014 deficit, but they are still spending $492 billion more than they had in revenue,” Johnson continued. According to financial magazine Forbes, $17 trillion is just the tip of the ice berg.  “The United States has nearly a hundred times that in long-term unfunded liability,” Johnson stated.  According to Forbes, the total amount of unfunded liabilities is $126 trillion, or $1.1 million per U.S. taxpayer.  “While the US National Debt Clock may calculate that every man, woman and child owes $55,346 in funded liabilities, it is the actual tax payers that will end up paying over $1 million in both funded and unfunded liabilities to pay this debt back,” Johnson explained. According to the Senate Budget Committee, $3.7 trillion has been spent on welfare which according to Forbes has contributed the most to the rising debt.  “Social Security is not an entitlement,” Johnson stated.  “Taxpayers pay into this fund and expect the money they put in to...

River Regatta Safety

The 8th Annual Bullhead City River Regatta is just around the bend! On Saturday, August 9th, tens of thousands of floaters will drift down the Colorado River for the “Aloha” River Regatta event!   The Bullhead City Police Department hopes participants will Regatta responsibly. Here are a few tips to help make this year’s river float an enjoyable and safe experience: All participants must wear a Coast Guard approved life vest while on the water. We also suggest you wear a wide brimmed hat, sunglasses, sunscreen (reapply every two hours) and water shoes or sneakers. Flip flops can easily slip off and float away, and you don’t want to come to shore in bare feet! Bring and drink lots of water. Bring a paddle or two so you can maneuver away from obstacles and toward the landing site. While floating, stay in the middle of the river and you’ll avoid most of the hazards. Stay away from boat docks and whirlpools. Boat docks line the river on both sides, which are hazardous for tubers. If you end up in the water without your tube, do NOT swim against the current. You will have your life vest on, so just float until you can get back on a tube. Do not tie more than 10 tubes together, unless you are competing in the decorated float contest. Use C-clamps for quick release. No...
