Spend wisely...........
How to use the IRS rebate

As you may have heard the Bush Administration is sending each and every one of us a nice rebate to grow our economy!

If we spend that money at Wal-Mart, all the money will go to China. If we spend it on gasoline it will all go to the Arabs, if we purchase a computer it will all go to India, if we purchase fruit and vegetables it will all go to Mexico, Honduras, and Guatamala, if we purchase a good tv or car it will all go to Japan, if we purchase useless crap it will all go to Taiwan and none of it will help the American economy.

We need to keep that money here in America, so the only way to keep that money here at home is to buy prostitutes, beer and visit Indian casinos, since those are the only businesses still in the US!

Not sure, but the beer and prostitutes may have some foreign influence as well. Indian Gaming - here I come.

Yep, for example good old American beer brewer Miller Brewing Company is owned by SABMiller. What does SAB stand for? South African Breweries. Hmmmmm.

you can always send the money to me - I'll squander it in short order and relieve you of the burden.

I may spend my rebate on the car's transmission. The labor will stay local, anyway. Don't think it's exactly what the gov't had in mind but it's what I NEED to spend it on. That or the upcoming medical bills.

I just don't seem to have much luck with frivolous spending. . .

Hmm... I was thinking about spending the money on a second web-cam so I could keep my eye on the local economy. Maybe I should buy one of the planters too and watch my flowers from afar .
