Yesterday morning I ran across this and thought it helped put our government’s insane level of spending into perspective…
The most recent Powerball jackpot was $570 million. Just for fun, let’s assume the Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner went into Turbo-Mart and bought a ticket on behalf of the U.S. government. Then let’s assume that the government was the lone winner of the jackpot (and just for kicks let’s stretch reality even further and assume the prize isn’t taxed).
Of course, that was yesterday. The length of time is probably down to about one hour and 24 minutes by now.
