McCain & Obama Support This Bailout Plan......We're Doomed

Like most Americans, I'm sure you were glued to the news about the "financial crisis" and the government's "fix" for the problem. You probably heard that the government was going to come in and save the mortgage industry by bailing out failing corporations. And, you probably heard both Barack Obama and John McCain say that this bailout was necessary, and good for the economy. What you probably didn't hear was that it was going to cost up to $1 trillion dollars, and you were responsible for this money. "American taxpayers will come up with the money," says the New York Times. Such a number is hard to conceptualize if you're not the government. So, in order to show you just how much $1 trillion dollars really is, we've put together these figures:One trillion dollars ($1,000,000,000,000) is enough money:
~To buy everybody living in Los Angeles at least one Lamborghini Gallardo.
~To buy 88,052, 394' custom mega yachts; enough to stretch around ¼ of the world.
~To buy everyone living in Belize and Malta a Manhattan apartment.
~To get half of the Democratic Party into a fundraiser for Barack Obama at the $28,500 admission price.
~To give one out of every two men in the United States a Men's Presidential Rolex watch.
~To buy every woman in the United States a Tiffany Diamond Starfish Pendant.
~To get two Mitsubishi 73" HDTVs for every household in America.
~To buy four copies of The Office: Season Four on DVD, to every person on earth.
~To send everybody in America on an all-inclusive vacation to Tahiti (and some people can stay a few extra days). AND…$1 trillion is enough money for everyone in Buffalo, NY to buy their own 65-acre island in Panama. This is how much the government is going to cost you (roughly $3,278 for every man, woman and child in the United States). Barack Obama is for it. John McCain is for it.
