Subject: VERY INTERESTING: HOW MANY 0'S IN A BILLION?
*How many zeros in a billion???*
*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 it's 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 Congress for*
*250 **BILLION DOLLARS*
*to rebuild New Orleans . Interesting number...*
*what does it mean?*

*(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,*

*/We had the largest middle class in the world... and Mom stayed
* home to raise the kids /**/../*
*What happened?*

I've been saying this for years and this is the reason why I vote Libertarian. Reduce the government = government spending less = more money in our pockets.
