1 billion dollars

It's A VERY BIG Number

If I give you $1 billion and you stand on a street corner handing out $1 per second, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, you would still not have handed out
$1 billion after 31 years!

Now read on. 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 put that figure into some perspective in one of its releases.

1. A billion seconds ago, it was 1959.

2. A billion minutes ago, Jesus was alive.

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

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

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

We are charged:

Stamp Duty

Tobacco Tax

Corporate Income Tax

Income Tax

Council Tax

Unemployment Tax

Fishing License Tax

Petrol/Diesel Tax

Inheritance Tax (tax on top of tax)

Alcohol Tax

GST

Property Tax

Purchase Property Tax

Tax on Title Searches

Tax on Building Inspections

Tax on supplements

Taxes on various food items

Taxes on Dining out

Tax on all utilities – Phone, hydro, water, waste disposal

Service charge taxes

Social Security Tax

Vehicle License / Registration Tax

Vehicle Sales Tax

Workers Compensation Tax

And now Carbon Tax

STILL THINK THIS IS FUNNY?

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.

We had the largest hard working class in the world. A criminal’s life was uncomfortable. What on earth happened?

I hope this goes around Canada beyond 1 billion times!

No we don’t, but if you die with a million dollars in rrsp’s you effectively made a million dollars that year and the government will take its share , somewhere around 50%.

Not entirely true. Try getting what is left of an RRSP out of an estate without giving the government 30% Even funeral expenses are taxed and most cities have certain requirements for burial, all of which are taxable.
