  • 700 Billion Dollars

    And there is 300 Million of us or there bouts. That's around 23 Million dollars from each person. Give me the 23 million, and I'll worry about getting my own milk and butter from then on.....

    Actually $2,300 per person.
    Still a huge number considering it is every man woman and child.
    One billion is 1000 million

        What will it be like in 2-3 years?


        The ridgid roundup will have to be an online game because the cost of fuel, no plane rides due to cost,

        and internet game of clogged drains will have to suffice. Just call me Nostradumbass!

          In another place, at another time, I could easily see this sliding into a political rumble.

            I like my math better........

            My calculator doesn't go to 700 billion....

            Funny thing was, we received a check last spring for $2100.00 from our Govt., now I knew somehow or someway, I'd be paying taxes on that or giving it back, now I owe $200.00 more....

                Will somebody please tell me what 700 billion dollars looks like because my eyes are starting to glaze over and my mind is shutting down when they start talking in trillions.

                        markets go UO and markets go DOWN and markets go UP ....

                        bailing out the companies that ran this situation into the ground is NOT (INHO) the way to go. start with the small guys that need some help (not the ones that got suckered into sub prime they could never pay back or the chronic defaulters). i'm no economist but i can tell you that trickle down DOES NOT WORK. trickle up might. but then again life is a crap shoot. this problem DID NOT occur over night and CAN'T be solved with a hurry up bailout. haste makes waste

                        it's interesting that the market took a bit fall. 775 or so points (about 2%) and rebounded almost 2/3s of it today. the only rush is to make politicians look good and help out the PACS, lobbyists, & wealthy.

                        i say that we look for a long term approach and not give the fat cats anything for screwing things up as they have. the economy will come back and the dead wood will fall by the side. just kick the rotting corpses of the CEOs out of your way as you go to the bank.
