WHAT IS A BILLION? – AMAZING

 I find this quite staggering and 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? 

 Can you spell ‘politicians?’ 

 I hope this goes around the UK 
at least 100 times. 

 What the hell happened?????
