Only a Billion

  • by

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
  • VAT
  • GST
  • Fishing Licence Tax
  • Food Licence Tax
  • Fuel LicenceTax
  • Petrol/Diesel Tax
  • Hunting Licence Tax
  • Luxury Tax
  • Property Tax
  • Service charge taxes
  • Capital gains Tax
  • Social Security Tax
  • Road Usage Tax
  • Local Tax
  • Vehicle Licence Registration Tax
  • Vehicle Sales Tax
  • Workers Compensation 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

What  happened?

I  hope this goes around At least a billion times.

What the HELL happened?????
