The US Debt Clock Widget Above

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."

Or close!

  1. Thanks for making the widgets available. FYI, the code for the US Debt Clock widget is incomplete.

    I just did a view source and copied the code from the area of the displayed clock.
