Blog Post Boomer54 Mark

This is a Power 3s List.

I received an email the other day and wanted to share a these 3 items about…

1 Billion


Also, I have included a video at the bottom of this post, to give you another perspective on what 1 billion is!

The email was too true to be funny.

What prompted me to share this info is the budget approval process in Washington and the way the politicians throw around “billions of dollars.”

Think about the following and let it sink in:

1. A billion seconds ago it was 1959.

2. A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.

3. A billion hours ago our ancestors were Living in the Stone Age.

Bonus 4. A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.

Bonus 5. A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes…At the rate our government Is spending it.

Also, these 11 taxes and another 30 like it did not exist 100 years ago!

Building Permit Tax
CDL License Tax
Cigarette Tax
Corporate Income Tax
Dog License Tax
Federal Income Tax (Fed)
Federal Unemployment Tax (FU TA)
Fishing License Tax
Food License Tax
Fuel Permit Tax
Gasoline Tax

I don’t have the answers, except to vote “no” in elections to any new taxes at the local level and to vote for politicians that are fiscally conservative.

What do you think?

This video helps put into perspective…

a million billion trillion.
