Every man and woman in this country needs to hear this little exchange. It speaks for itself.
Oh, and when Alan Grayson refers to "what is now a two trillion dollar portfolio" - how much is that?
Two billion General Grants ($1,000 apiece); or twenty billion Ben Franklins ($100 apiece).
What could you do with it?
Well - you could spend $1,000 every second for 64 years.
Or, you could make a stack of one-thousand-dollar bills 142 miles high - enough to threaten the International Space Station.
You could lay those Grants end to end around the earth's equator - eight times. If you used Franklins you could do it eighty times.
If you actually used dollar bills you could make a continuous ribbon 189,393,939.4 miles long. A fighter jet flying at the speed of sound would take over twenty-nine years to unroll it.
This didn't come from a chain email, friends. I did the math myself and if anyone doesn't believe it I'll post all the calculations.
When did America go insane?
