Stimulus Check

September 26, 2012

Sometime this year, we taxpayers will again receive another ‘Economic Stimulus’ payment.

This is indeed a very exciting program, and I’ll explain it by using a Q & A format:

Q. What is an ‘Economic Stimulus’ payment ?

A. It is money that the federal government will send to taxpayers.

Q.. Where will the government get this money?

A.. From taxpayers.

Q. So the government is giving me back my own money ?

A. Only a smidgen of it..

Q. What is the purpose of this payment ?

A. The plan is for you to use the money to purchase a high-definition TV set, thus stimulating the economy.

Q. But isn’t that stimulating the economy of China ?

A. Shut up.

Below is some helpful advice on how to best help the U.S. economy by spending your stimulus check wisely:

* If you spend the stimulus money at Wal-Mart, the money will go to China or Sri Lanka ….

* If you spend it on gasoline, your money will go to the Arabs..

* If you purchase a computer, it will go to India ,Taiwan or China .

* If you purchase fruit and vegetables, it will go to Mexico ,Honduras and Guatemala …

* If you buy an efficient car, it will go to Japan or Korea …

* If you purchase useless stuff, it will go to Taiwan .

* If you pay your credit cards off, or buy stock, it will go to management bonuses and they will hide it offshore.

Instead, keep the money in America by:

1) Spending it at yard sales, or

2) Going to ball games, or

3) Spending it on prostitutes, or

4) Beer or

5) Tattoos.

(These are the only American businesses still operating in the U.S. )

Conclusion: Go to a ball game with a tattooed prostitute that you met at a yard sale and drink beer all day !

No need to thank me, I’m just glad I could

From Hot Air:

Gov’t handouts exceed taxes as percentage of average household income for first time since 1936

Think that BIG CUT in government spending that congress just announced will help?  Think again…

In February, households received more than $2.3 trillion in income support from unemployment benefits, Social Security, disability insurance, Medicare, Medicaid, veterans’ benefits, education assistance and other cash transfers of government funds to individuals. In the same month, households paid $2.2 trillion in income, payroll, and other taxes. The difference was about $150 billion, equivalent to more than 1 percentage point of overall personal income and about four times the amount Republicans and Democrats agreed to cut from government spending through Sept. 30.

Well and Truly…

Honestly…

CHICAGO—The Illinois Supreme Court has put Rahm Emanuel back on the ballot for Chicago mayor

And it has to tell you something about the amount of money that can be made stolen and power that can be had abused in Chicago, that the right-hand man to the most powerful office on earth would leave that position to run for the position of a city MAYOR…

Shit, just swear him in now and save the time, money and effort of the election.

Nothing to see here – move along…

From Fox News:

Nevada Voters Say Reid’s Name Checked for Them on Touch-Screen Ballots

Voters in one Nevada city are complaining that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s name was already checked when they went to cast their ballots in early voting Monday, according to Fox5Vegas.com.

Voters in Boulder City said they were trying to vote for Republican nominee Sharron Angle, but that Reid’s name was checked when they got to the electronic voting machines.

"Something’s not right," voter Joyce Ferrara told the network, saying several people reported the same problem. "One person that’s a fluke. Two, that’s strange. But several within a five-minute period of time — that’s wrong."

A Clark County voting official said highly sensitive touch-screens may be to blame and that fraud is not the issue.

Oh, well if you say so…

Martha Alligood helps a voter with curbside voting

 

A Craven County voter says he had a near miss at the polls on Thursday when an electronic voting machine completed his straight-party ticket for the opposite of what he intended.

Sam Laughinghouse of New Bern said he pushed the button to vote Republican in all races, but the voting machine screen displayed a ballot with all Democrats checked. He cleared the screen and tried again with the same result, he said. Then he asked for and received help from election staff.

“They pushed it twice and the same thing happened,” Laughinghouse said. “That was four times in a row. The fifth time they pushed it…
