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 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)
was asking Congress for
250
BILLION DOLLARS
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.

Washington , D.C

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...
We had the largest middle class in the world...
And Mom stayed home to raise the kids.


What happened?
Can you spell

'politicians'!

And I still have toPress '1'
For English.

I hope this goes around
the
U
SA
At least 100 times

What the hell has happened to our country?????

Actually, it's almost 100 years ago since we had the stock market crash and the great recession. Good points otherwise.
Here is a fun fact of the day: You can replace the word, "Actually" with the phrase, "You big dumb bastard" in any sentence and it will be grammatically correct!

Try it, its FUN...
