here are some of the realities that Flake; Gutierrez,
would airbrush out of the picture

Figures can trick your eyes. Take particular note that items 2,3,5, and 7
reflect BILLION not millions of Dollars -- and that item 3 exceeds one-third
of a TRILLION dollars.
Can you imagine how much it will cost taxpayers if we triple the number of
Illegals entering this country!!
What's in a Billion?
Granted................. This is from the US! 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 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, let's take a look at New Orleans . It's 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??
This is too true to be very funny!

When you read about the "Government" spending money, there are some out there who do not realize the money they are spending so freely is not the "Governments Money." It is OUR money they spend so freely. When they; the men and women we sometimes so foolishly elect to Congress, run out of money they raise our taxes so they can go on spending. Let us tell them we are NOT happy with what they are doing about the spending and that STUPID immigration law they want to pass.
Whether you agree with me or not;
Thanks for reading this.
