    Cleaning my Thompson in The Foothills of the Ozark
    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.

    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??

    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???? ?

    Thanks Al !!!

    Politicians feel about taxes the way cats do about rainy days.....They're absolutely convinced that the next tax will lead them to the promised land.....Just as cats are convinced that the next door opened will lead to sunny weather..... >MW

    Amen to that, Pistol. Unfortunately, we'll never be able to go back to the way things ought to be; too many people now believe that they have the inalienable rights to life, liberty, and happiness, with no pursuit necessary.
