STIMULUS CHECK

As you may have heard, each of us will be getting a tax rebate check to stimulate the economy.

If we spend that money at most stores, all the money will go to China. If we spend it on gasoline it will go to the Arabs. If we purchase a computer it will go to India. If we purchase fruits and vegetables it will go to Honduras, and Guatemala. If we purchase a good car it will go to Japan. If we purchase useless stuff it will go to Taiwan and none of it will help the American economy.

We need to keep that money here in America. The only way to keep that money here at home is to spend it at
yard sales, since those are the only businesses left owned by Americans !!

 
PASS IT ON !!!!

Mine is taking me on vacation and I am going to have a blast!  Where it goes after that is out of my control and I will be satisfied because the ocean calls to me. Hey...you live by the sea don't you???? :) Barb

Wow, great idea but mine is gone.  Half went on my credit card debt and the rest went to my checking to make up for the lack of money in it :(  HUGS Chris
