If the government really wanted to reduce its debt, I would suggest money-saving methods such as using free conference call services such as Rondee.

I know there's a lot of conference calling done in government, and it just seems to me that all those conference calls could really be done for free.

NO Sites currently using this applet:

This is a Java Applet which calculates the approximate national debt every half second. If you would like to add it to your web pages, add the following HTML code:

<APPLET CODEBASE="http://rescomp.stanford.edu/~raistlin/java" CODE="Debt.class" WIDTH=240 HEIGHT=100"> </APPLET>

If you would like to have a different-colored background for the applet, use the following code between the <APPLET> and </APPLET> tags. The Red, Green and Blue values must be between 0 and 255. You can experiment with the values to get the background color you desire. The default is 255-255-255, which is white.

<PARAM NAME="BGreen" VALUE="12">

I have revised this applet on 3-28-96 to allow for different-colored backgrounds. If you have any suggestions/comments, or you plan to put it on your web page, please e-mail me.
