Sometime this year, we taxpayers will again receive another ‘Economic Stimulus’ payment.
This is indeed a very exciting program, and I’ll explain it by using a Q & A format:
Q. What is an ‘Economic Stimulus’ payment ?
A. It is money that the federal government will send to taxpayers.
Q. Where will the government get this money ?
A. From taxpayers.
Q. So the government is giving me back my own money ?
A. Only a smidgen of it.
Q. What is the purpose of this payment ?
A. The plan is for you to use the money to purchase a high-definition TV set, thus stimulating the economy.
Q. But isn’t that stimulating the economy of China ?
A. Shut up.
Below is some helpful advice on how to best help the U.S. economy by spending your stimulus check wisely:
- If you spend the stimulus money at Wal-Mart, the money will go to China or Sri Lanka .
- If you spend it on gasoline, your money will go to the Arabs.
- If you purchase a computer, it will go to India , Taiwan or China .
- If you purchase fruit and vegetables, it will go to Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala ..
- If you buy an efficient car, it will go to Japan or Korea .
- If you purchase useless stuff, it will go to Taiwan .
- If you pay your credit cards off, or buy stock, it will go to management bonuses and they will hide it offshore.
Instead, keep the money in America by:
- Spending it at yard sales, or
- Going to ball games, or
- Beer or
(These are the only American businesses still operating in the U.S.)
This weekend go to a ball game or a yard sale, get a tattoo and drink beer all day !
No need to thank me, I’m just glad I could be of help.
More than $70 billion in wealth left New Jersey between 2004 and 2008 as affluent residents moved elsewhere, according to a report released Wednesday that marks a swift reversal of fortune for a state once considered the nation’s wealthiest.
“The wealth is not being replaced,” said John Havens, who directed the study. “It’s above and beyond the general trend that is affecting the rest of the northeast.”
“We need true tax reform that will at least make a start toward restoring for our children the American Dream that wealth is denied to no one, that each individual has the right to fly as high as his strength and ability will take him… But we cannot have such reform while our tax policy is engineered by people who view the tax as a means of achieving changes in our social structure.”
“Our federal tax system is, in short, utterly impossible, utterly unjust and completely counterproductive, it reeks with injustice and is fundamentally un-American… it has earned a rebellion and it’s time we rebelled…”
