A Trillion Here, A Trillion There ...

With bailouts, stimulus packages, unemployment extensions and a myriad of government payouts added to the national debt, we have entered the era of the trillion-dollar expenditure.

A trillion here, a trillion there, and after several times of hearing the trillion-dollar figure, it actually sounds affordable.

But is it? Most people have no concept of what a trillion-dollars is. Get ready for a shocker.

A dollar bill is 6.14 inches in length. Imagine stacking dollar-bills one on top of another, end to end. By the time you stacked your trillionth dollar, you would have a length of dollar-bills that would extend from earth to over 96,906,643 miles into space.

The average distance from Earth to the Sun, which is referred to in the scientific community as one astronomical unit, is only 92,955,887.6 miles.

One of two things - either our government is spending our country into insolvency, and with insolvency comes bankruptcy, and with bankruptcy comes a complete restructuring of society, which just happens to be the goal of the Cloward-Piven strategy.

Or, perhaps the Sun is not as far away as it seems.
