What is this? Now we want to send some money to Egypt to prop up their economy after the Coup?
(This is $10,000 in $100’s) Keep that in mind
There are estimates of Mubarak’s wealth that reach 70 BILLION dollars. Keep in mind he was raised in poverty, no family money. So whose money is that? Mostly Egypt’s I would suppose. So take from the guy 69 Billion and leave him a paltry ONE BILLION to live out his days and take care of his family. It would probably be enough.
(This is just a Million dollars in $100 bills. not very impressive)
WOW! To be honest, if what I hear is true, our Foreign Aid is like a drop in the bucket (less than 1%) to the other expenses we have. Now I understand the comparisons, but I cannot help but think on a small man’s level. I wonder how much it costs to move the president and congressmen a round. Like cranking up Air Force ONE or any of the many Helicopters that are furnished to our politicians, it takes MY PERSONAL TAXES in less than five minutes, if that long. So to keep these things going takes all the taxes paid by a small town every day, and that is just for the fuel.
(Now we are getting somewhere, this is a hundred million)
Now I love NASA. I like space exploration. But it costs 450 million dollars for one mission. I don’t know how many folks pay a million dollars tax a year (I don’t think any of us on this Blogging network do, well with the EXCEPTION of maybe Bucko, Jimmy and Garnett), but one mission takes the taxes of 450 of them. . (Oh, I had that mixed up with the bar bill, Jimmy and Garnett’s bar bill at AREA 51 is that much, but you know how things appear and disappear in AREA 51).
(One Billion dollars in $100 bills. That is ten pallets of money. Mubarak has 70 times that, pretty good huh?)
Strange but when I start figuring the amount of taxes paid on a personal level, one working person pays just enough to pay for your congressman’s postage bill. I wonder how many taxpayers it takes to support one congressman. I just tried to find out and could not find the figures.
I did find where During the Reid-Kennedy Immigration hearings that illegals cost the taxpayers ½ Trillion dollars a year and that was in 2006. (The gov’t’s own estimations). But they don’t have time to fix it, they are too busy campaigning, sexting and texting!
(Okay this is a trillion dollars in $100 bills, look how little our man is in the corner. Folks as of tonight we owe fourteen times that as a nation, The figure below as of about 9PM)
Sorry ‘bout this, but thanks for coming by. I just ask you to look at your hard money going for taxes. Check the amount, and see what YOU are paying for. Your taxes may cover the toilet paper in the Capitol building for a month.
Again to emphasize:
I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was blaming you.
That guy in the 1950 Chevy truck is gonna smell that great smoke smell. That looks like the Tetons in the back ground.
