What is a Billion Dollars

 

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.


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

HELLO!
Are all
your calculators broken?
