    I hadn't seen this presentation before and thought others might get something from this that makes everybody wish this video to go more viral than it is already.

    This video shows a definitely shocking (but funny) comparison of our national debt progression over the last century or so (since 1900), with the under 3 minute presentation taking the form of a road trip to represent dollars as distance, and speed as the rate of debt increase.

    The worst previous speed shown was 64 MPH during George the 3rd., but projected at 174 MPH with present admin projections. Even if the numbers are not quite right, the magnitude of error can't be so great as the magnitude of change (271%).

    Maybe somebody will embed the video in a posting box. That's not my forte', for now.
