How many zeros in a billion?

Sourced in U.S.A. but applies here as well !!!!

Ever wonder WHY the financial collapse was 'Engineered'? Possibly it's later than many people think!

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 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.
Louisiana Senator, Mary Landrieu is presently 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.
Imagine, now $700 billion bailing out banks in the U.S. That's enough to fund complete medical care for every man, woman and child currently alive in the US, for 11 years!!
50 billion to bail out the auto industry??? Washington, D.C. & Ottawa ONT ..
Are all your calculators broken??

We had the largest middle class in the world.
And Mum stayed home to raise the kids.

Politicians happened
And I still have to press '1' for English.
I hope this goes around the US  & CANADA and AUSTRALIA at  least 1 billion times
