I put this widget up because I believe the US aggregate debts are astronomically high. I DO UNDERSTAND that the debt as calculated in the widget is perhaps 3% or 4% different than other USA debt calculations I have seen elsewhere.
The widget, of course, does not include future liabilities (Medicare and Social Security for example). Those future liabilities may increase the actual total debt up to some $70 trillion by some estimates.
If the above widget is BAD (more than, say, 5% off), please let me know.
Otherwise, I would like to keep it... As the old saying from England goes:
"Our debts and our sins are greater than what we imagine."
