Do a good deed today, buy a politician a calculator that works

This has been around for a few years now but with every politician talking about the trillions of dollars in debt that Barack Hussein Obama has piled on Americans in the last three years, I think it is worth repeating. And remember, when this was written a billion dollars was a lot of money. Remember this, a trillion is one thousand times a billion.

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
Here are a few comparisons to put that figure 
into some perspective

A billion seconds ago it was 1959.

A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.

A billion hours ago 
our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.

A billion days ago 
no-one walked on the earth on two feet.

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

rebuild New Orleans . Interesting number...
What does it mean?


Well .. If you are one of the 484,674 residents of New Orleans
(every man, woman and child)
You each get


Or... If you have one of the 188,251 homes in
New Orleans , your home gets


Or... If you are a family of four...
Your family gets

Washington , D.C
Are all your calculators broken??

Now, on the subject of TAXES, ponder this.

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...
We had the largest middle class in the world...
And Mom stayed home to raise the kids.
