RE: This is to true to be very funny

Thanks to Jim for this "t0 [sic] true" tale and a handy right-wind dad fact check:
"fact check: the proposed $250 billion 'to rebuild New Orleans' proposed by 'Louisiana Senator, Mary Landrieu (D)' was originally proposed by Landrieu AND David Vitter (R), who you may remember from the 'DC Madam' hooker scandal. seems like someone's right-wing Dad conveniently forgot that Louisiana has two Senators, that they both proposed this legislation, that it was for all of Louisiana, not New Orleans, and that it was to be spent over 10 years (yielding $5,594.12 per person, per year, not $516,528 per person as claimed). makes me wonder if he really remembers what it was like 100 years ago, 'to'."


This is to true to be very 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
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 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, lets take a look at New
Orleans Its amazing what you can learn with some simple division . .

Louisiana Senator, Mary Landrieu (D), is presently asking the Congress
for $250 BILLION to rebuild New Orleans . Interesting number, what does
it mean?

A. Well, if you are one of 484,674 residents of
New Orleans (every man, woman, child), you
each get $516,528.

B. Or, if you have one of the 188,251 homes in
New Orleans , your home gets $1,329,787.

C. Or, if you are a family of four, your family
gets $2,066,012.

Washington , D.C .. HELLO!!! ... Are all your calculators broken??

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 hes 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 hes gone,
We wont relax,
Well still be after the inheritance TAX!!

Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago,
and our nation was the most prosperous in the world.
We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the
world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What happened? Can you spell politicians!
