That something being a visual aid on how much money we are bleeding in Iraq.
Nine Million dollars … The pile is 5 feet tall, 10 feet long, and 6¼ feet wide. A single stack of dollar bills in this amount would be 3,000 feet high.
This horde is comparable in size to a single compact car. You could buy 489 of them for the amount, though, with enough cash left over to fill up the gas tanks of 162 of them.
But this amount of money is more than four times what you can expect to earn in your entire life, if you are an American with a college degree.
That is the visual to how much 9 million dollars would look if you got to stand next to it. I do this for you little people who don’t have that kind of petty cash around. Like me, I have a little more than that lying next to my bed right now. People ask how do I sleep at night?
I reply, ‘On top of a pile of money, with lots of beautiful women.’by
