How many zeros in 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 it's releases.

A billion seconds ago it was 1959.

A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.

A billion hours ago our ancestors were
living in the Stone Age.

A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.

A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and20 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 askingCongressfor 250 BILLION DOLLARS to rebuild New Orleans . Interesting number... what does it mean?

Well... if you are one of the 484,674 residents of New Orleans (every man, woman, and child) youeach get $516,528.

Or... if you have one of the 188,251 homes in
New Orleans , your home gets

Or... if you are a family of four... your familygets $2,066,012.

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 to
press '1' for English.

I hope this goes around
theUSA at least 100 times

What the heck happened????
