Billions in Taxes

This is too true to be funny. In A country like ours we are the highest taxed per head of population!

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 press releases.

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.

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

5. A billion dollars ago was only
13 hours and 12 minutes,
At the rate our government
is spending it.

Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago…
And our nation was one of the most prosperous in the world.

We had absolutely no national debt…
We had the largest middle class in the world…
And Mum stayed home to raise the kids.

What the hell happened?????

the mikiverse loves free speech and wholeheartedley accepts, that someone who is diametrically opposed to my views is free to promulgate those thoughts...However, misogyny, racism, intolerance etc will see that comment deleted.
These abstract considerations will be solely, and exclusively determined by the mikiverse, so play hard, but, nice.
