This is too true to be very funny!
The next time you hear a politician use the word "billion" in a casual manner,
think about whether you want the "politicians" spending YOUR tax Money.
A billion is a difficult number to comprehend,
but one advertising Agency did a good job
of putting that figure into some perspective in one of its releases.
A. A billion seconds ago it was 1959.
B. A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.
C. A billion hours ago our ancestors were
living in the Stone Age.
D. A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.
E. A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and
20 minutes, at the rate our government is spending it.
While this thought is still fresh in our brain, let's take a look at New
Orleans It's amazing what you can learn with some simple division.
Louisiana Senator, Mary Landrieu (D), is presently asking the Congress for $250 BILLION
to rebuild New Orleans . Interesting number, what does It mean?
A. Well, if you are one of 484,674 residents of New Orleans
(every man, woman, child), you each get $516,528.
B. Or, if you have one of the 188,251 homes in
New Orleans , your home gets $1,329,787.
C. Or, if you are a family of four, your family gets $2,066,012.
Washington , D.C .. HELLO!!! ... Are all your calculators broken??
STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY?
Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago,
And our nation was the most prosperous in the world.
We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the
World, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.
What happened? Can you spell ‘politicians?'
I hope this goes around THE
USA at least 100 times
What the heck happened?????
