    Default What is a billion?

    This really brings into perspective the actual figure of one 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. 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 Pounds ago was only 13 hours and 12 minutes, at the rate our government is spending it.

    Stamp Duty
    Tobacco Tax
    Corporate Income Tax
    Income Tax

    Council Tax
    Unemployment Tax
    Fishing License Tax
    Petrol/Diesel Tax
    Inheritance Tax
    (tax on top of tax)
    Alcohol Tax
    V.A.T.
    Marriage License Tax
    Property Tax
    Service charge taxes
    Social Security Tax
    Vehicle License Registration Tax
    Vehicle Sales Tax
    Workers Compensation Tax

    STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY?

    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 happened?

    Somebody created the POLITICAL class.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    I thought income tax was introduced to fight the French? That would have been over 100 years ago, and worth every penny!
