How to use your government rebate

As you may have heard the Bush Administration said each and every one of us would now get a nice rebate. 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, if we purchase fruit and vegetables it will all go to Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala, if we purchase a good car it will all go to Japan, if we purchase useless crap it will all go to Taiwan and 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 buy prostitutes and beer, since those are the only businesses still in the US.

Around here ... it seems many folks will be paying off their DUI fines. That's cash in local pockets.

I just spent $$$ on some new MTB wheels, so reimbursement for those will be most welcome.

:D

No Miller products for you then :lol:
In 2002, South African Breweries, which had expanded outside South Africa in emerging markets, bought Miller Brewing Co. in a deal worth US$5.6bn. The enlarged brewer becomes SABMiller plc, listed in London and Johannesburg.

I plan to quickly put it towards a loan payment before I spend it on something. This doesn't directly stimulate the economy either. Although I guess it helps out the lending crisis or whatever the deal is . . .
