A Hermit's View Of The Stimulus....!
You may have heard me say this before...my sisters are very talented ladies!
My baby sis is pretty smart about financial stuff as well. Smarter than me, anyway! Of course, that ain't saying a lot...but she is pretty savvy in this stuff!
Anyway, she sent me this little bit o information and it made so much sense to me, I wanted to share it with all my friends. Hope it helps you like it did me...!
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.
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.
Q. But isn't that stimulating the economy of China ?
A. Shut up.
Below is some helpful advice on how to best help the US economy by spending your stimulus check wisely:
. If you spend the stimulus money at Wal-Mart, the money will go to China .
. If you spend it on gasoline, your money will go to the Arabs.
. If you purchase a computer, it will go to India .
. If you purchase fruit or vegetables, it will go to Mexico , Honduras and Guatemala .
. If you buy a car, it will go to Japan .
. If you purchase useless stuff, it will go to Taiwan.
. If you pay off your credit cards, or buy stock, it will go to management bonuses, and they will hide it offshore.
Instead, keep the money in America by:
1. Spending it at yard sales, or
2. Going to ball games, or
3. Spending it on prostitutes, or
4. Beer, or
(These seem to be the only American businesses still operating in the US .)
It would be best if you went to a ball game with a tattooed prostitute that you met at a yard sale and then drank American beer all day.
See what I mean? When explained this manor, it all makes perfect sense...in a twisted sort of way!
Now, my friends, let's get some fresh coffee and sit outside for a bit! That's another thing that makes a lot of sense!
