what is a billion?
5/15/2008 12:18:01 PM    [ Flag as Inappropriate ]

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.

This is an email recently received:


What is a Billion?

This is too true to be 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 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 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 $516,528.00

B. Or, if you have one of the 188,251 homes in
New Orleans, your home gets $1,329,787.00

C. Or, if you are a family of four, your family
gets $2,066,012.00

Washington, D.C .. HELLO!!! ... Are all your calculators broken??

STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY?

Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago,
and the U.S. nation was the most prosperous in the
world.

The U.S. 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!

White Elephants by Chynna Laird

Elephant in the middle of the living room. That is one way of explaining how a family walks around the invisible presence of huge problems. Hindsight is what brings the elephant in..
