    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 m 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

    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 happened? Can you spell 'politicians!'

    And I still have to 'press

    1' for English.

    I hope this goes around THE
    USA at least 100 times

    What the heck happened?????

    This one pizzes me to no end also. Hap

    "Our Social Security

    Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social Security (F ICA) Program. He promised:

    1.) That participation in the Program would be Completely voluntary,

    2.) That the participants would only have to pay 1% of the first $1,400 of their annual incomes into the Program,

    3.) That the money the participants elected to put Into the Program would be deductible from Their income for tax purposes each year,

    4.) That the money the participants put into the independent "Trust Fund" rather than into the General Operating Fund, and therefore, would only be used to fund the Social Security Retirement Program, and no other government prog ram, and,

    5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees would never be taxed as income.

    Since many of us have paid into FICA for years and are now receiving a Social Security check every month -- and the n finding that we are getting taxed on 85% of the money we paid to the Federal Government to "put away" -- you may be interested in the following:


    Q : Which Political Party took Social Security from the independent "Trust Fund" and put it into the General Fund so that Congress could spend it?

    A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the democratically Controlled House and Senate.

    --------------------- -----------------------------------------------

    Q: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax deduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding?

    A: The Democratic Party.


    Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social Security annuities?

    A: The Democratic Party, with Al Gore casting the "tie-breaking" deciding vote as President of the Senate, while he was Vice President of the US

    ------------------------------------------------------ -------------

    Q: Which Political Party decided to start giving annuity payments to immigrants?


    A: That's right! Jimmy Carter and the Democratic Party. Immigrants moved into this country, and at age 65, began to receive Social Security payments! The Democratic Party gave these payments to them, even though they never paid a dime into it!


    Then, after violating the original contract (FICA), the Democrats turn around and tell you that the Republicans want to take your Social Security away!

    And the worst part about it is, uninformed citizens believe it!

    If enough people receive this, maybe a seed of awareness will be planted and maybe changes will evolve. Maybe not, some Democrats are awfully sure of what isn't so."

    Old One Eye is an ass for trying to take credit for something he didn't write. While it was good, one eye certainly plagiarized it.

    Dr Bob, maybe you should read the original post again.
    Old one eye did't seem to me to take credit.

    I think it is the six sentence.

    One advertising agency did a good job of putting that figure into perspective
    in one of its releases.
    I can't see where this guy tried to take credit for anything.

    Last you call him an #ss.

    What do you want attention?

    We do not need #ssholes like you on here.

    The man had a very good thread and you tried to (TRASH IT).

    Oh, by the way if you like this site, send some money to

    address removed

    Like the rest of us do.

    Merry Christmas

    Dr Bob,

    Here we go again with accusations of plagiary. I copied and posted his words (not plagiary because I'm not representing them as mine) that clearly indicate that he is not claiming these as his words. Give it a rest will you?

    "but one advertising agency did a good job of putting that figure into some perspective in one of its releases." (then posted their release)

    the unauthorized use or close imitation of the language and thoughts of another author AND THE REPRESENTATION OF THEM AS ONE’S OWN ORIGINAL WORK.

    Dr Bob, It’s in no way Plagiary to post the words of anyone as long as you make it clear (as he did) that these are not his own words or ideas. As for copyright infringements that are also questioned on this site. One must GAIN (profit) from the reproduction of copyrighted material before the owner has a case.

    Just in case your not clear copyright infringement are a civil tort. To support any action in a tort all four elements must be present. 1. Legal right or duty – the victim has a legal right not to be harmed. 2. Breach of duty- your right to be free from harm must be violated. (after number two is where a lot of people get lost on this issue) 3. Harm-The victim MUST INCUR HARM (damage or injury) that causes FINANCIAL LOSS. 4. Proximate cause- there must be a direct connection between your actions and the victims loss. Failure to meat all four elements of a tort gives you nothing, two won’t do it three won’t do it, you need to meet all four elements or you have sheeeet!
