What Really is a Billion?
 

Hi everyone. I trust you are praying about the election and will seriously consider that it is a privilege to have the right to vote. The material below was sent to me and I do not  who is the author. It will provoke you to think about the way we look at numbers and the state of the nation. God bless you all and thank you for visiting our site.

What Really Is A Billion?

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)

is presently 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.

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 to

press '1'

for English.

I hope this is read around
the

USA

many, many times!

What in the world has happened?

In God We Trust and God Bless The U.S.A.

In Christ, 

Bro. Donny
