Just how much is One Trillion Dollars?

one trillion one-dollar bills stacked high would reach nearly 68,000 miles into space, one third of the way to the moon.

If you started spending the day that Jesus was born, and you spent a million dollars every single day, you still wouldn't have spent a trillion dollars.

A million seconds is about 11 and a half days. A billion seconds is about 32 years. And a trillion seconds is 32, 000 years.

There you have it thought GW's plan was bad.

This is why I would gladly settle for just a billion dollars. ;-)

Runaway spending has been a hallmark of the U.S. Government since the days of Ronald Reagan. Tossing around such sums of money like chump change is something Democratic and Republican administrations have done and will do without a second thought.

Wait....GWbush had a "plan"? I hate the fact that this country is in this situation and hopefully, things will turn around soon....It ain't looking good though.
