How much is a billion?

        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 Old (middle paleolithic) Stone Age.

D. A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet. (That’s 2,740,000 years approx – I think the writer is wrong but it’s a moot point still – David Davis)

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??

Tax his land,
Tax his wage,
Tax his bed in which he lays.
Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule,

Teach him taxes are the rule.


Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.
Tax his ties,
Tax his shirts,
Tax his work,
Tax his dirt.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he tries to think.

Tax his booze,
Tax his beers,
If he cries,
Tax his tears.

Tax his bills,
Tax his gas,
Tax his notes,
Tax his cash.

Tax him good and let him know
That after taxes, he has no dough.

If he hollers,
Tax him more,
Tax him until he’s good and sore.

Tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in which he lays.
Put these words upon his tomb,
‘Taxes drove me to my doom!’

And when he’s gone,
We won’t relax,

We’ll still be after the inheritance TAX!

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!’
And I still have to ‘press
1′ for English. I hope this goes around THE
USA at least 100 times
What the heck happened ?????

Ron Paul is the only one holding a political office

that really cares.

  1. Ron Paul is my hero.

  2. A pity he didn’t do better than he did. The US will get the president it deserves this time round, as the prevailing mood seems to be “anybody except George Bush”.
