How to use Your IRS Rebate check

As you may have heard, the Bush
Administration said each of us would get a
rebate check to stimulate the economy.

If we spend that money at Wal-Mart, 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 fruit and vegetables, it will go to Mexico, 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 still in the U.S.

    Don’t forget used cd and bookstores. They are run by small ma and pa businesses.

    Can’t help but laugh. As I get a VA Pension non-service connected) I am not entitled to a rebate. If I was on Social Security, I would get $300. But I am not. I guess the government doesn’t want me to have more than what they are already paying me.

    And yard sales are about the only true American businesses anymore. πŸ™‚

    Hire someone for yard work, home repairs, auto repairs – anything you can’t do yourself.

    I say everyone should purchase a gun with there tax refund, what better use for the money to be used to protect yourself from the ones who took it in the first place,

    unfortunately, mine will go to Sonlight and Rainbow Resource Center for homeschooling books for my children next year. But I do hire local private people to fix things in my home versus big corporate type companies.

    Great ideas! Don’t forget Ebay as a way to help Americans who are trying to get by.

    You can also consider spending the money making yard signs and creating flyers to support your local peace candidate running for US Congress.

    Hey Perhaps the more Flush you are with the stuff we all will need the more of this stuff you could DONATE to a yard sale Gift like Eh. Perhaps if more thought less MONEY and more HELP the karma might flow for you better. Have? Share. Want? Seek.

    I say “keep useful stuff useful and in service.. it took a lot more to create than most values will admit.”

    And do a heroic job trying to keep the money OUT of it and you will not fail ever.

    Fine, spend the check on small Mom & Pop business, maybe in a flee market. The seller in turn deposits the check in the bank and pays his distributor for items purchased from China. We are back where we started. As long as the big businesses do business in China at the expens e of our labor force, there are no “band-aid” solutions. We must do what the Chinese, Japanese and Koreans did in the beginning: To sell here, you must make it here!

    First pay for your pharmaceuticals. USA drug manufacturers are taking most of senior citizens’ money. Younger people should start saving for when this hits them unless the next President can change it.
