Trillion Dollars Defined

Somewhat lost in the posturing with the budget issue in Washington, is the fact that the Fiscal Cliff was put in place to force Washington to address the exploding government debt problem. That problem is greatly exacerbated by the rapidly changing demographics in this country. If you fast forward 20 years until all the boomers are retired government debt (taking into account unfunded liabilities) soars to $202 trillion.

When fraud is the status quo, possession is the law..

Along those lines...does anyone know (or care) what a trillion bucks is?

A trillion inches = about 16 million miles.

A trillion seconds = nearly 32,000 years.

A trillion "stacked" one dollar bills would be nearly 68,000 miles high.

If you earn $50,000 per year, It would take you 20 million years to earn a trillion dollars.

One million seconds will pass in the next 12 days.One billion seconds will take 32 years.One trillion seconds will pass in 31,688 years.

If you make one dollar every second, you will have a million dollars in twelve days. You will be a billionaire in 32 years, but it will take you more than 31,000 years to make a trillion dollars.

It would take more than 10,000 18-wheelers to transport one trillion $1 bills.
