I heard on the radio the other day, if you were given 5000 dollars every day since Columbus stepped on this land, you still wouldn't have a billion. It would take another 20 years of 5000 a day. Those numbers are hard to fathom. Google says there are 607 billionaires in the USA alone. Why would someone need that much money?

Nobody "needs" that kind of money. A lot of things we dont need but we want. Just look at any new gun thread on here.

A Billion is 1,000 Million. I could live on that if I make a budget, and stick to it! LOL

Combine the admission money from last year and this years super bowl-about a billion. It holds about 65,000 and the average price stated for this year is $8500, so that is about 552 million for this year alone unless my math is bad.

LOW this is your history, civics and economics lesson. In the 1960's children were taught to name the millionaires in the United States, because there were less than 10. It is not about needing money, but it is about how the Dollar once was based in gold and worth a dollar. When the conglomerates led by the Rockefellers and Rothschilds decided to pin the Dollar to Crude Oil, the dollar was deflated and inflation began. In 1970, you could purchase a Ford LTD for 1200 dollars. People lived well on 200 dollars a month in wages. Houses were 5000 dollars, land for farming was 200 dollars an acre.

Inflation which was debt spending and an increased money supply which made rich people richer, and the middle class poor by design as millions of people in the middle class was more powerful than the swindler few, was initiated by design for control. America is now a socialist state, as that means the government collects money, appropriates it to conglomerates, and rations life to the many. The majoriy can not afford anything. 10 years ago our small towns still had house for 15,000 dollars. Over night when the realtors got together, those houses were 85,000 dollars and people from California and Colorado were paying it to escape liberal states. Those houses are now sitting empty, because the local people can not afford them. Farmers were told their land was assessed at production values, and started as in the 1970's going into debt on those fake numbers. Grain prices fell, they have the debt, and in their welfare they drive new things the bank owns and still have the same massive debt.

The financiers had to in order to gain control of the American system, and to weaponize money, created inflation. The things Ronald Reagan tried to bring back to America was subverted by the Bush's Clintons and Obama. The Bush's cheapened money to loan it, so the rich got free money without interest. The Clintons sent union jobs overseas. Obama converted America to the conglomerate few to manage money as the Treasury was tapped to pump money into Wall Street for the rich. As a warning in this, the reason China has not been quarantined is because Chinese mules are laundering money into the United States illegally in franchise businesses and this flows to Wall Street.

The United States like most of the world is managed looting and is enforced by a police state which makes criminals out of the masses.

The reason you can not fathom what a billion is, is one reason they did it. It is like Hitler saying little people told little lies, and could not tell big lies. You could understand if Warren Buffett was stealing a thousand dollars from every American every day. You can not understand Warren Buffett looting investors, buying up American railroads which owned North Dakota lands, which had oil under them, and Buffett had all of these new rail cars to transport that oil, as Obama shut down Canadian oil, shut down the Gulf and refused to build a pipeline. Yes Green Obama, was part of an oil soaked scheme. It is the way this all works in environmentalists complain about fur or carbon and their scammers are the ones wiping out the wildlife and pumping the oil for profit.
The Dollar is worthless and deflated, that is why there are trillions of dollars missing from the US Treasury.
