R3publicans:  US Debt Clock and What It Tells Us

The US Debt Clock is a “real time” dynamic website that shows the state of the US debt and with a little logic some of what that means to the citizens of this country. What I am displaying is a snapshot of the clock at approximately 9:30 AM Central time on Friday the 18th of January.

It is said to be China’s biggest church and on Easter Sunday thousands of worshippers will flock to this Asian mega-temple to pledge their allegiance – not to the Communist Party, but to the Cross.

The 5,000-capacity Liushi church, which boasts more than twice as many seats as Westminster Abbey and a 206ft crucifix that can be seen for miles around, opened last year with one theologian declaring it a “miracle that such a small town was able to build such a grand church”.
