what happened?


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


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 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 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


to rebuild New Orleans . Interesting number,

what does it mean?


Well, if you are one of

484,674 residents of
New Orleans

(every man, woman, child),

you each get $516,528.


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.
