Well, since it has absolutely no documentation as to its sources and is completely anonymous, I'd say its almost positively a fake at best.
At worst, its more intentional fear mongering.
It would be interesting to find out who's behind it.

Honestly you spout so much non-sense that I can't tell where you're coming from or what you're talking about.

If you are stating that Beck or Fox is somehow related to this site I would like for you to state in clear terms what that accusation is based on.
Show me a link, a quote with its source etc, otherwise knock off the BS.
So far everything I've seen from you is wild accusations with nothing linked to verifiable facts and rambling references to inside topics that only you understand.

Try one clear link connecting Beck or Fox with this Clock of yours.

Easy on this one HOC.  I don't think this calculator is accurate, and I don't think it is a fabrication.  They typically take the number of units used in a year and divide that by a time frame to show the increase over time.  It doesn't mean that the congress is spending 32K dollars a minute, it just means to spend 11 billion dollars in one year you, you would have to spend x amount of dollars per second.

I think Kite is just saying she heard about the page form Beck - not that he is affiliated with it directly.

Yesterday on the Glenn Beck show on FOX he had this "clock" on a large screen. He and someone from FOX Business Channel were discussing debt, interest, etc. I did not watch that part of the show, therefore I can't offer any further info.

I don't need your advice much less your instruction.

So that returns us to my original post.

 Well it's sure is not the first time that political badgering has been used with numbers.In fact people have gotten more disgusting on betraying political foes as the debt has grown astronomically! While the left and right fights over the numbers the country will wane in power and influence around the world economically. Anybody who thinks the total debt is not getting worst by the day and out of control is living in a fantasy world. You are being manipulated even if you don't realize it. Change is coming and here's one big Idea among many but something has got to give and change is coming.  The Zeitgeist Movement: Orientation Presentation  But remember out of chaos comes order!

Is the debt clock at http://www.usdebtclock.org/ “accurate”?

When I checked it a few minutes ago, it read:

$11,733,864,556,???.??

Just short of 12 trillion, I couldn’t read the last figures, they were spinning too fast.

I then went to the federal government treasury website:

http://www.treasurydirect.gov/NP/BPDLogin?application=np

The stationary, end of the day debt listed there was:

$11,719,060,925,865.86

Sounds pretty accurate to me….

Thanks fred
I would still have to wonder why its anonymous.
You would think they would be happy to show their source and state their purpose.
