    The following information is TOO sobering. Thanks goes to a retired minister, Bill, in Arkansas.
    Please read and be sure to vote in every election accordingly.
                        [size=48]A Billion[/size]         
    [size=48]This is too true to be funny.[/size]
    [size=48]The next time you hear a politician use the [/size][size=48]
    Word 'billion' in a casual manner, think about whether you want the 'politicians' spending YOUR tax money.[/size]
    [size=48]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.[/size]
    [size=48]A.[/size]   [size=48]A billion seconds ago it was 1959.[/size]
    [size=48]B.[/size]   [size=48]A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.[/size]
    [size=48]C.[/size]   [size=48]A billion hours ago our ancestors were [/size][size=48]
    living in the Stone Age.[/size]
    [size=48]D.[/size]   [size=48]A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.[/size]
    [size=48]E. A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes, at the rate our government [/size][size=48]
    is spending it.[/size]

    [size=48]While this thought is still fresh in our brain... [/size][size=48]
    let's take a look at New Orleans ... 
    It's amazing what you can learn with some simple division.[/size]

    [size=48]Louisiana Senator, [/size][size=48]
    Mary Landrieu was asking Congress for[/size]
    250 [/size]
    [size=48]BILLION DOLLARS [/size][size=48]
    To [/size]
    [size=48]rebuild New Orleans . Interesting number... [/size][size=48]
    What does it mean?[/size]
