As you read this data on how much a billion is, think of what Congress is talking about these days as they approve trillions.
This has been around before, a few years ago. I thought it would be useful see how big ONE BILLION is.
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 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 the earth on two feet.
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.
Mary Landrieu (D)
was asking Congress for
250 BILLION DOLLARS
To rebuild New Orleans . Interesting number…
What does it mean?
Well .. If you are one of the 484,674 residents of New Orleans
(every man, woman and child)
You each get $516,528
Or… If you have one of the 188,251 homes in
New Orleans , your home gets $1,329,787.
Or… If you are a family of four…
Your family gets $2,066,012.

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…
We had the largest middle class in the world…
And Mom stayed home to raise the kids.
Can you spell
And I still have to
I hope this goes around the
At least 100 times
What the hell has happened to our country?????
“By the way, it takes 1,000 of these Billions that you just read about…to equal ONE TRILLION that congress pisses away like last nights’ beer!”
Meet Walter Barnes.
All golfers should live so long as to become this kind, old man !
Toward the end of the Sunday service, the Minister asked,
“How many of you have forgiven your enemies?”
80% held up their hands. The Minister then repeated his question.
All responded this time, except one man, Walter Barnes.
“Mr. Barnes, are you not willing to forgive your enemies?”
“I don’t have any,” he replied gruffly.
“Mr. Barnes, that is very unusual. How old are you?”
“Ninety-eight,” he replied.
The congregation stood up and clapped their hands.
“Oh, Mr. Barnes, would you please come down in front and tell us all how a person can live ninety-eight years and not have an enemy in the world?”
The old golfer tottered down the aisle, stopped in front of the pulpit, turned around, faced the congregation, and said simply,
“I outlived all them assholes.”
Then he calmly returned to his seat.

This is no surprise.
Tesla car drivers also hit blind people who can’t hear them.
I have worked many jobs in my life which meant a lot of overtime hours in some cases. They were pretty straight-forward, easily solved little crises. The company gets a larger than usual order, so they would go on overtime for a couple weeks. Problem solved.
BUT….Mercy me, & Katy Bar The Door! I simply cannot stay up with the demand on my Nancy Pelosi Voodoo dolls. I have completely exhausted the supply of Kente cloth from Ghana for the scarves. I have purchased all the little high heels that were reserved for Barbie from Mattel. Amazon’s supply of little BLM face masks is already in back-order status.
My apologies to my many customers, but I simply must place Old Nancy on the back-burner until my supplies are more accessible.
I do have some good news! The demand for my VOO-obama-Doo Doll has sky-rocketed. The Pre-production samples are looking “just as the customers have requested.”
Yes, he will be delivered with the authentic tag reading “I WAS MADE IN KENYA.” Parker Brothers has agreed to stack millions of Monopoly dollars on little pallets for me. So, when you open your VOO-obama-DOO Doll, he will be reclining on his pallets of money, with the shipping label which reads: “Destination: Iran…in the middle of the night…in unmarked planes.”
If you order in the next 30 minutes, you will receive an advance notice of the availability of the Phase ll Voo-obama-doo doll. He will be sporting a little T-shirt that reads “George Soros is my Hero.” For an additional shipping and handling charge, you will receive real miniature replicas of the Fast & Furious guns that Harry Reid and obama gave to the Mexican cartel.
But hold on…the best is yet to come…. he will have a little Joe Biden Dummy Puppet on his lap. Can you believe what I went through to make this happen? All the little Dummy says when you pull the string is…”C’mon Man”… but, I have to start somewhere.
China was VERY adamant that they would not release their “Joe Biden Puppet Rights” to anyone in America until they see just how much faith they can safely put in their Business Associate, Hunter Biden.
Meanwhile…get your mind off politics and worry about something important like:
Poor Barbie is forced to wear mismatched flip flops with her mini skirts and formal gowns because I have bought all the little high heels for my Old Nancy Voodoo dolls.
The Medulla Nebula Supernova Remnant
Image Credit & Copyright: Russell Croman
Explanation: What powers this unusual nebula? CTB-1 is the expanding gas shell that was left when a massive star toward the constellation of Cassiopeia exploded about 10,000 years ago. The star likely detonated when it ran out of elements, near its core, that could create stabilizing pressure with nuclear fusion. The resulting supernova remnant, nicknamed the Medulla Nebula for its brain-like shape, still glows in visible light by the heat generated by its collision with confining interstellar gas. Why the nebula also glows in X-ray light, though, remains a mystery. One hypothesis holds that an energetic pulsar was co-created that powers the nebula with a fast outwardly moving wind. Following this lead, a pulsar has recently been found in radio waves that appears to have been expelled by the supernova explosion at over 1000 kilometers per second. Although the Medulla Nebula appears as large as a full moon, it is so faint that it took 130-hours of exposure with two small telescopes in New Mexico, USA, to create the featured image.
