The national debt is rising because Attorney General Eric Candleholder has decided to create an artificial island with $600 Billion in money borrowed from China, after which $7 Billion will be used to construct a prison for locking up incarcerated persons serving sentences of 20 years or more.
AG Candleholder also plans to have the island surrounded with sharks, jellyfish, electric eels, electric catfish, piranhas, alligators, crocodiles, lions, tigers, pit bulls, german sheperds and rhinos, as well as installing Israeli commandos armed with Romanian AK-47s, an electric fence that can electrocute one to death, and no chance of ever escaping alive.
Human blood will also be sprinkled into the water and near the potential paths of escape, also the electric fences will consist of barbed wire and chain saws.
The government denies such a prison is being built but when former Governor Jesse Ventura investigated, he found out it was true but was never given information as to where it would be located.
Lindsay Lohan has already expressed fears she will be sent to this very prison, because she is afraid she will be served slop.
