    Monstrously OUT OF CONTROL....!!!!

    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.
