These guys probably worked hard all day, digging holes for the studs to stop traffic from parking on the side walk. Good idea, good plan, but they really didn't look at the future of how they were doing the job.

  The government has the same problem. Short term solutions (Having a larger deficit) for a long term problem (Make work programs, welfare, no control over money,pork programs, tax initiatives, etc )

  So what's a million dollars?  A billion dollars? A trillion dollars?

  I have a hard time wrapping my mind around that, do you too?

  Maybe these examples might help:

  1)                                     A million seconds is 13 days.
                                          A billion seconds is 31 years.
                                          A trillion seconds is 31,688 years.

   Quite the difference!

  2)                                    A million hours ago was in 1885.
                                         A billion hours ago man had not yet walked on earth.
                                         Trillion = 1,000,000,000,000.
                                         The country has not existed for a trillion seconds.
                                         Western civilization has not been around a trillion seconds.
                                         One trillion seconds ago – 31,688 years – Neanderthals stalked the plains of Europe.
   Now notice in the trillion example, that is seconds and not hours!                                        

  3)                                  The 750 billion bailout package, if it was given to individual taxpayers,
                                       would equal $5,434.78 per taxpayer. Now that's a stimulus package!!
                                       But, instead we go $5,434.78 into debt for each taxpayer. Smart guys in
                                       government, right?

  4)                                  Everyone's sympathetic to New Orleans. Still trying to recover from that
                                       hurricane. But is this smart?
                                       Louisiana Senator, Mary Landrieu (D) is presently asking Congress for
                                       250 BILLION DOLLARS to rebuild New Orleans.
                                       Interesting number... what does it mean?
                                       A. Well... if you are one of the 484,674 residents of New Orleans
                                       (every man, woman, and child) you each get $515,810.
                                       B. Or... if you have one of the 188,251 homes in New Orleans, your
                                       home gets $1,328,014.
                                       C. Or... if you are a family of four... your family gets $2,063,240.
