What's a trillion dollars?
'Binary' meaning the first part is sitting undetectable in computers now, and the second part arrives April 1rst, or later, crashing PC's.
Macs should be o.k. Keep your antivirus program updated!
Thanks to Larry Taylor, From the Edge Alerts, for this:
Several have mentioned trouble getting Yahoo, blogs, etc. and not working right. Maybe more people are on the 'net? Or, is there some electromagnetic influence happening that we should know about? Asteroid coming close? Are we all being spied upon?
Discern! People will say anything to sell something, whether it's a budget or a book. hmm... Could be some truth in this, could be just a sales pitch. Does any of it strike a bell? What do you think?

Do you know what a Trillion dollars looks like?
Take a look:
How about Three trillion plus dollars? Can the average taxpayer fathom that? Does the average taxpayer know what it will cost their children and grandchildren? Where did we get trillions of dollars? Where is it going to come from? China? We already owe the Red Dragon billions of dollars - they are worried about us paying them back. So... they have been given 'eminent domain' over our properties as collateral.
Isn't that wonderful?
What's a trillion dollars?
A trillion dollars = $1,000,000,000,000.
That's 12 zeroes to the left of the decimal point. A trillion is a million million dollars.
The U.S. government spends more than the entire Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of Australia, China and Spain combined. If you laid one dollar bills end to end, you could make a chain that stretches from earth to the moon and back again 200 times before you ran out of dollar bills! One trillion dollars would stretch nearly from the earth to the sun. It would take a military jet flying at the speed of sound, reeling out a roll of dollar bills behind it, 14 years before it reeled out one trillion dollar bills.
What is frightening is that government will continue to grow in America unless citizens prevent it. If government stays on the course it's been on for the past forty years without a radical change, the federal government will have a $10 TRILLION BUDGET by the year 2010.
Foolish politicians make pronouncements about the strength of the economy. The total debt obligation of the United States now exceeds 46 TRILLION DOLLARS.
American workers now net almost 30 percent less in real wages than they did in 1973. After taxes, two paychecks in a family barely equal the purchasing power one had thirty years ago.
