Woody Guthrie’s first Daily Worker column

The national debit is one thing I caint figger out. I heard a senator on a radio a saying that we owed somebody 16 jillion dollers. I don’t know their name, but I remember the price. Called it the national debit. If the nation is the government and the government is the people, then I guess the people owes the people, that means I owe me and you owe you, and I forget the regular fee, but if I owe myself something, I would be a willing just to call it off rather than have the senaters aruge about it, and I know you would do the same and then we wouldn’t have no national debit.
