How to Use the Government Rebate
As you may have heard, the Bush Administration announced recently that almost every one of us taxpayers will get a nice rebate check soon from the U.S. Government: $300 to $600 for individuals, and another $200 for each dependent child. The declared purpose of this rebate is to stimulate the American economy when we all go out and spend it. However, if we spend that money at Wal-Mart, all the money will go to China . If we spend it on gasoline, it will all go to the Arabs. If we purchase a computer it will all go to India, and if we purchase HD TV's, stereos, or other electronic crap, the money will all go to Taiwan. If we purchase a good car, it will all go to Japan or Korea or Germany. Shoe and clothing purchases will go to China, Indonesia, or Viet Nam. Even if we buy food, the fruit and vegetables proceeds will all go to Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala, and beef proceeds will go to Argentina -- and of course, none of it 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 spend it on prostitutes and liquor, since these are, apparently, the only businesses still left in the US.
