a Million, a Billion, a Trillion

Thursday, December 20th, 2007

 1,000,000,000,000 Trillion
1,000,000,000 Billion
1,000,000 Million

Just because they sound the same, doesn’t
mean they’re even close. Think of it this way:
imagine a stack of new $100 bills. A million
dollars would be a stack of hundreds just over
3 feet high. A billion dollars would be a stack
about the height of the Empire State Building.
A trillion dollars in hundreds? That stack would
be over 270-miles tall.

Our Federal Government is over 9-TRILLION
dollars in debt. That’s about $30,000 for every
man, woman, and child in the country!

So go ahead and cheat on your taxes – who cares?
