Rebate checks

President Bush said each one of us would get a $1200.00 tax
rebate.

It was previously slated to be $1400.00, but they dropped it to
a $1200.00 tax rebate because of various budget problems.
Now, if we spend that money at Wal-Mart, all the money will go to
China, if we spend it on computers, most of the money will go to Korea
or India.
If we spend it on gasoline it will all go to the Arabs.....and none
of these scenarios 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 drink beer, gamble, or spend it on
prostitution.

Currently it seems that these are the only businesses
still left in the U.S

Funny you should say that. I had a meeting today with a Friend that owns a Golf Course about holding a Home brew clinic. I don't want to start a side business but felt that since he owns the second best course in Kentucky it might be a nice adjunct to his clubhouse.

If your brew takes off you may not have a choice.

Wow, I noticed a flayer in the poor neighborhoods offering instant loans based on the rebates. Now I understand why the poor stay poor

Yes, that was the plan all along. Bush wants to borrow money from the Chinese so that consumers can spend it on Chinese goods. And congress went along with it. I'm not sure which side Bush is on, Bin Laden's or the Chinese...

And unless something new came up that I didn't hear about, the figure is $600.
