TRUE PERSPECTIVE OF A TRILLION DOLLARS

Having trouble visualizing a trillion dollars? OK, take a wild guess at how big a pile one trillion dollars (in $100 bills) would make.

Now look at this.

You weren't even close, were you?

Combine the recently-passed Stimulus with the new omnibus spending bill for 2009-2010, and you have this much, plus 20%. Six times larger than the previous highest annual budget deficit.

The Democrats couldn't do more damage to the country if Obama and each and every one of the Democrat Senators and representatives flew fully loaded 757s into individual crowded skyscrapers.

The damage will be horrible but short-lived. 2010 will come, and most of this insanity will get reversed. But only after they've flattened our economy for a decade. The only bright spot is that this debacle will finally cure the country of its love affair with liberalism.

Just like I predicted.

You may now vomit.

1 I have been surfing on-line more than three hours lately, but I by no means discovered any fascinating article like yours. It's beautiful worth enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the internet will be a lot more helpful than ever before.
