Wrap Your Mind Around This, and then double it.

Today's visual aid for economics professors, pundits, politicians, and folks who are tired of having their pockets picked. Staggering

Be sure to scroll all de way down, mon.

Yeah, this one goes into my favorite category: no telling where the money went.

It Obama-san gets his way it might take that much to buy a car.

Also, we may soon be using the term "league" again for distances -- that is, the distance a man can walk in an hour -- or can go in one of Iowahawk's Congressional Motors carbon-neutral electric-pedal hybrids.

wv: defre -- are we still the land of de free?

Sure...it looks staggeringly big next to a Normal Man.
But how big will it look when Obama stands next to it?

Apparently, we'll have to double it again when Obama is on watch.

I'm hoping one of the benefits of public sector jobs collapsing will be fewer cops in my little town. Ever since Clinton doled out money for more fuzz, my little town has become a speed trap of amazing constancy.

See, they hired them with Clinton money, but don't have enough ongoing infrastructure and taxes to pay for them, so they must blare their sirens ALL DAY LONG in front of my dwelling.

Feck 'em for being the most annoying Welfare assistance program evah!

Reading Orson Bean this morning, of course I had to link on your fart video. What a way to die!

Do you mean to suggest that Obama will print out 1 trillion dollars using only 1-dollar bills? If that is the case, we are talking major deforestation. Must alert Al Gore to this immediately.

I know of a solution though. He should start printing out 1 million dollar bills. Considering expected inflation, they should be worth about 1$ in today's money. See, it is not that bad.....
