In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue...

Well this is an interesting little fact.

The Obama spending bill (and it's OK now to call this disastrous stimulus package a spending bill because Obama is now referring to it as a spending bill) is about $800,000,000,000 ($800 Billion or just under $ 1 trillion... what's a few hundred billion anymore?). Hey what happened to the stimulus?

Now we all remember the old saying... "In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue." Columbus discovered the Americas in 1492 (sorry... Mr. Erickson) and this is 2009... so 2009 - 1492 is 517 years ago! (Wow 517 years ago... was that like before Madonna was born?) So that equates to 188,705 days ago... just to be sure... 517 years x 365 days per year... yes... 188,705 days ago.

So this one spending package is equal to the U.S. government spending tax payers money at a rate of approximately $4,000,000 (4 million dollars) per DAY, EVERY DAY... since Columbus discovered America.

I know! I know what you're saying... "That can't be accurate!" Please... run the numbers... it's true! Spending $4 million a DAY, EVERY DAY since Columbus discovered America.

Insanity! Can you say inflation? I fear for the Republic! I think I'll take my shoe off and throw it at the Capitol building!
