The next time you hear a politician use the word "billion" in a casual
manner, think about whether this is who you want spending your tax money.
A billion is a difficult number to comprehend, but one advertising agency
a good job of putting that figure into some perspective in one of its
a. A billion seconds ago it was 1959.
b. A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.
c. A billion hours ago our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.
d. A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.
e. 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 what is happening with the 85 billion that we gave to AIG.
The first week after receiving the bailout money, they spent $440,000 on a retreat at a luxurious California resort on your tax money. When is the last time you vacationed at a plus resort anywhere?
And though reports show that Congress is upset and looking for answers, today's news story tells of A.I.G. getting an additional $37.8 Billion to help it deal with a rapidly dwindling supply of cash.
Is this amazing or what?
Washington, D.C. HELLO!!!... Obviously you are not looking out for my best interest.
STOP GIVING AWAY MY MONEY!!!!
This is too true to be very funny...
Tax his land,
Tax his wage,
Tax his bed in which he lays.
Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule,
Teach him taxes are the rule.
Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.
Tax his ties,
Tax his shirts,
Tax his work,
Tax his dirt.
Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he tries to think.
Tax his booze,
Tax his beers,
If he cries,
Tax his tears.
Tax his bills,
Tax his gas,
Tax his notes,
Tax his cash.
Tax him good
and let him know
That after taxes, he has no dough.
If he hollers,
Tax him more,
Tax him until he's good and sore.
Tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in which he lays.
Put these words upon his tomb,
"Taxes drove me to my doom!"
And when he's gone,
We won't relax,
We'll still be after the inheritance TAX!!
