Some more to think about.

I have read this and it is amazing how some people have no concept of of Billion dollars, they speak of it as if it is no great amount. Maybe we should start paying attention to what is said, and by who!!

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 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 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 is 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 hi 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!!
Accounts Receivable Tax
Building Permit Tax
CDL License Tax
Cigarette Tax
Corporate Income Tax
Dog License Tax
Federal Income Tax
Federal Unemployment Tax (FUTA)
Fishing License Tax
Food License Tax
Fuel Permit Tax

Telephone Federal Excise Tax,
Telephone Federal Universal Service Fee Tax,
Telephone Federal, State and Local Surcharge Tax,
Telephone Minimum Usage Surcharge Tax,

Telephone State and Local Tax,
Telephone Usage Charge Tax,
Utility Tax,
Vehicle License Registration Tax,

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, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What happen ed? Can you spell 'politicians!' :roll:


I hope this goes around THE
USA at least 100 times

What the heck happened?????

I'll agree with ya!

But now the resuloution is on you! How do we solve the problem!

The deal here is not enough people get involved!

I use to spend 60 hours a week on the Ethanol deal.. I got tired of fighting..Ethanol is not good! Anyone reading this.. trust me! It all about the market and $$.. Who has the lions share!

People for the most part go to work, school, take care of their family and don't clue in to what Congress or their State assyman/woman is doing.. So when the Sh*t hits the fan they go WTF!

That reaction is a lil too late.. But who has over 60 hours a week to keep up with what's going on???

Well my 2 c..

If they can get you asking the wrong questions, they don't have to worry about answers.
