Washington D C is Corrupt and Broken

Washington D C is Corrupt and Broken

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. 

         From  Washington , D.C
