Political Correctness, Politicians or both ?

1An interesting fact sheet.

This is too true to be funny.
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 billion seconds ago it was 1959.

A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.

A billion hours ago our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.

A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.

A billion Dollars ago was only 13 hours and 12 minutes, at the rate our government is spending it.

  1. Not one of these taxes existed 60 years ago and our nation was one of the most prosperous in the world.We had absolutely no national debt.
  2. We had the largest middle class in the world. Mum stayed home to raise the kids, Dad and teachers were allowed to discipline kids.
  3. A criminals life was uncomfortable.
  4. Boat people were kids sailing on the harbour.

What the hell happened?
‘Political Correctness’, ‘Politicians or both?’ I hope this goes around Australia and beyond
at least 100 times.
