A Billion.......

Recommended Posts

I saw this today, makes you think.....bring on November.....


Interesting way of looking at what a billion means in terms we are all familiar with.


just amazing


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 days ago no one on the earth walked on two feet.


E. A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes,

at the rate our governments are 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 Congress for


to rebuild New Orleans ... Interesting number ...

what does it mean?


A. Well... if you are one of the 484,674 residents of New Orleans

(every man, woman, and 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.


Imagine, now $700 billion bailing out banks in the US . That's enough to fund complete medical care for every man, woman and child currently alive in the US for 11 years!!

50 billion to bail out the auto industry???

Washington , D.C. & Ottawa Are all your calculators broken??

If they would have divided up all of the stimulus' amongst the tax-paying citizens, I do believe the economy would be better off than it is now. Only the fat cats got to pocket some of that $$$$.

Don't forget to vote. :Beer-Chug[1]:

In a world where corporations are the only first class citizens of worth,


Money is the political vernacular & only language ~ really what do you expect?


Honest ballot boxes & vote counts?



Political posts are banned ~ this is one of themm!

At Costco last week will waiting for the little woman to get out of the head i looked at the bulletin board near the entrance and they had posted

on display 52 different permits issued by state federal county and local

entities I'm sure besides costing a shit-load for the permits the regulations that they bring with it is enough to drive all but the largest corporations into the ground and bankruptcy
