Subject: What is a 'billion'?

This one is too true to be funny , but definitely worth sending on.

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 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 n umber, 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 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 him 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!!

STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY?
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.
< BR>
I hope this goes around THE
USA at least 100 times

What the heck happened?????
