How big is a trillion?

Sorry if this has been posted before, the search feature isn't working for me.

I e-mailed the United States Bureau of Engraving and Printing and asked this question:
'How long would it take the US Government to print one trillion dollars in one dollar bills?'

Today I got my answer, and its scary:

From the BEP,

"If we average 120,000 sheets a day of ONE HUNDRED dollar bills and ran eight press lines, 1.4 years"

To have the entire capacity of the US Mint requiring 1.4 years to print one trillion dollars is incomprehensible to me BUT if they had answered the question as I asked, how long would it take to print one trillion in one dollar bills the answers gets real scary, which is why they probably chose the 100 dollar bill answer,

In one dollar bills it would take the United States Government one hundred and fourty years to print one trillion dollars..

Need another way to understand the trillion thing?

one trillion seconds is over 30,000 years.

And HE wants to spend three trillion in the next few years

Boys, this has to be stopped-the 'tea parties' are a hell of an idea-but its time we all start thinking about smoking down/up or over to DC, in a peaceful way, and let those traitors know its time for them to be moving on, quick like.

We have been talking about doing something like that in Washington. But seceding from the nation sounds like an easier task than getting those thieving b@stards to listen to the people that put them in the drivers seat of this great country

Agreed. Secede and let the sheeple stay with them, or leave our republic. Much easier .

PSD- yea, I finally got one.

Isn't secession prohibited by the Constitution?

By the US consitution...

But with that said...isnt the thought by all the liberals that the Consutution a "living document" which can be changed? My own personal opinion is that it is not, but heck, if you can spin it a way that would benefit us...ie, reversing the whole "secession" thing, then might as well do it...

Someone said "yes" ... show me where, because I can't find it. The way I am reading it, each State is sovereign and It's participation in the United States is voluntary.

No such provision against secession is found in either the US Constitution or the Declaration of Independence, the two documents articulating the laws and principles which comprise the foundation of the American republic.

Abraham Lincoln seriously overstepped his authority in the War of Northern Aggression and we lost many thousands of American lives for his arrogance. And Obama likes to pretend he is the "new" Lincoln.

FORGOT THIS:

Bill of Rights-

Amendment X

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.


...if the power to secede is not PROHIBITED by the Constitution, it is reserved by the States and the People!
