How much is a billion Mr Politician?
If I give you $1 billion and you stand on a street corner handing out $1 per second, twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, you would still not have handed out $1 billion after 31 years!!
Now read on.
A VERY BIG NUMBER
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
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 13 hours and 12 minutes, at the rate
our government is spending it.

Not one of these taxes existed 60 years ago and Australia was one of the most prosperous countries in the world.
That is until federal and state governments corporatised every government department and Whitlam removed the Crown at the request of the Deep State Cabal.
Notably later on when PMG/Telecom was sold off by the Liberal Party, politicians profited immensely by getting kickbacks from the Deep State. Cairns News has been told of this corruption by MP’s of the day who were offered but refused huge cash or in kind payments to support the sale of Telecom in Parliament.
Not so long ago we had absolutely no national debt after the world’s greatest treasurer, Liberal Peter Costello emptied the vaults of 137 tonnes of gold.
We had the largest middle class in the world.
Mum stayed home to raise the kids.
Dad and teachers were allowed to discipline kids.
A criminal’s life was uncomfortable.
‘Political Correctness’, ‘Corrupt Politicians or both?’
