The next time you hear a politician use the word ‘billion’ in a casual manner, think about whether you want the ‘politicians’ spending YOUR tax money.
A billion is a difficult number to comprehend, but one advertising agency did a good job of putting that figure into some perspective in one of its press releases.
A. A billion seconds ago it was 1959.
B. A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.
C. A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.
D. A billion Rand ago was only 27 hours and 12 minutes, at the rate our government is spending it.
- Building Permit Tax
- Cigarette Tax
- Corporation Tax
- Income Tax
- Fishing Licence Tax
- Food Licence Tax
- Fuel LicenceTax

- Hunting Licence Tax
- Luxury Tax
- Property Tax
- Service charge taxes
- Capital gains Tax

Not one of these taxes existed 20 years ago… and definitely not a billion seconds ago
Our nation was one of the most prosperous in Africa. Remember when the Rand was stronger than the UK Pound
We had absolutely no national debt…
We had the largest middle class in Africa
And Mum stayed home to raise the kids
I hope this goes around At least a billion times.
What the HELL happened?????
