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

Powerful point in thread

Really puts things into an alarming perspective. Damn politicians are way to passe about other people's money.

It's disgusting and disgraceful all at the same time.

I can always remember the word "politician" taking on a negative conotation in my household growing up, but we are far beyond the level of effect they had on society then and now.

We broke free from England because of taxes and religious oppression only to have a formed government burden us with a similar fate in a not too distant future.

I wanna puke thinking about what will be left for the next generations.

They will undoubtedly bit hit with massive debt and hyper taxes to pay for it. Thats even if we fix the problems we have created up to today.
