Important Info on the Stimulus Payment

Important info on the Stimulus Payment

This year, taxpayers will receive an Economic Stimulus Payment. This is a very exciting new program that I will explain using the Q and A format.

Q. What is an Economic Stimulus Payment?

A. It is money that the federal government will send to taxpayers.

Q. So the government is giving me back my own money?

A. Only a smidgen. Approximately $13 a week or $676 the first year. Second year will reduce to about $8 a week or $416 a year.

Q. What is the purpose of this payment?

A. The plan is that you will use the money to purchase a high-definition TV set, thus stimulating the economy. Our First Lady, Michelle Obama had this to say about President Bush's tax refunds during the campaign:

"What can you do with only $600 in tax refunds? Buy a piece of jewelry?

Q. But isn't that stimulating the economy of China?

A. Shut up.

Some helpful advice on how to best help the US economy by spending your stimulus check wisely.

If you spend that money at Wal-Mart, the money will go to China.

If you spend it on gasoline it will go to the Arabs.

If you purchase a computer it will go to India.

If you purchase fruit and vegetables it will go to Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala (unless you buy organic).

If you buy a car it will go to Japan.

If you purchase useless crap it will go to Taiwan.

And none of it will help the American economy. We need to keep that money in America. You can keep the money in America by spending it at yard sales, going to a baseball game, or spend it on domestic beer , hookers or tattoos, since those are the only businesses still in the US. Must add here that you could also spend it for handmade in America at places like Artfire and Etsy, 1000 Markets, etc.

Please contact your Congresspersons and Senators to stop the foolishness and the Stimulus bill, which is mostly pork for special pet projects. Let us keep our hard earned money and not be put in debt to China, Russia, India who will be ones loaning us that Trillon dollars, which will be paid by our grandkids and great grandkids!
