How will you spend your rebate?

"Rebate" ... that's what they're calling the new "stimulus" money we are going to be forced to borrow from ourselves... Anyway looks like most of it's going to go to families with children, the more the merrier..

I think I'll use my money to get an ARM mortgage and buy one of those cheap houses out there. Then I'll deliberately fall behind on the mortgage, just enough to qualify for a government-sponsored workout. Then I'll sue some people at random (like my mortgage company), with the hope of getting the house for free in the end. Could work!

In a sick humorous way, those families with the most children are actually "gifting" their little snowflakes with the bill as this, like the rest of the Reagan/Bush/bush stimulus packages of the past 28 years are all on the Country's Charge Card, TreasEx.

Since it's going to be borrowed from me, I'll put it in the savings. That way, I'll have it when they ask me to pay it back.

Sounds like we'd get $1,500 from what I heard of the press conference Pelosi was giving over lunch. While that's cool & everything, I wish it corresponded with a cut in spending.

I'm going to use mine as seed money. I'm going to buy a list of social security #'s of newborn children, and start an identity theft ring. It's the new capitalism.
