A Billion

The next time you hear a politician casually use the word
"billion," think about whether you want the politician spending your tax
money.

A billion is a difficult number for most of us to comprehend, but one
advertising agency did a good job of putting that figure into
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 days ago no-one walked on two feet on earth.
* A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes, at the
rate the government spends it. with compassion,of course!!!!!!
He that would live in peace and ease
Must not speak all he knows,
nor judge all he sees.
