REBATE CHECK....THE CHECK WILL BE IN THE MAIL ?

This other day Congress said each one of us would get
$600.00, it was $800.00, then they dropped it to $300.00
for retired people, some tax 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,
and neither will help the American economy.

The way I see it, we need to keep that money here
in America, so the only way to keep that money here at home
is drink beer or spend it on prostitution.

These are the only domestic businesses still in the U.S.!

:D :D :D

UNless your in the head of household qualification catagory, ie already get money for nothing from the government, whatever economic stimulus check you get isn't free money, its an advance on 2009 tax return. Uncle is going to take it back.... next year.

thats what they say now, according to the proposals that went through the house, it was simply an advance on next year, and as such would have reduced next years return for those of us that pay taxes.

The last time this happend, it didn't reduce your refund either... you just got it a year early.. ie, if you normally got a grand, you got 700, because uncle gave ya 3 up front. Is your return reduced. No, you got full value... just not in Feb or April as you had years before.

The money they are "rebating" us is borrowed from countries like China. Yes, thats right, the money you think they are "giving" you is being borrowed from China and most of it will buy Chinese made crap and will go back to them. It is the stupidest thing I've heard of in a while!

Oh yeah, here is how I know we are really in trouble. The IRS is spending 42 million dollars just to let everyone know that we are getting the rebates! :roll:

This tax stimulus pisses me off. My wife and I both worked our *** off to pay our way through school. We have no kids. Being an engineering supervisor and a senior account we are getting paid pretty good. We live below our means (read - no deduction for home interest and taxes). Every year we get REAMED by the IRS for being successful middle class citizens who practice personal responsibility with our finances etc.

If I want to give money away it should be MY choice on the charity. I'd rather give it to the local vendors for my car and gun stuff. At least those people are small businesses who generally have their head screwed on straight i.e. some sibilance of personal responsibility. They also usually pass this on the the next generation of kids they are raising (as their own child or an employee/apprentice). Also they are more than likely to spend the money in the US to pay their local vendors as well.

Wow I am cranky before my first cup of coffee

That is true for a good many people but the part that pisses me off is over half the people that will get it don't even PAY taxes, so how the heck can it be a rebate or even a advance on your taxes if you don't pay any in the first place. One example of this is my grandmother, she hasn't paid taxes in years, in fact I and my sisters and cousins pay her taxes (she took all her investments put them into "joint" accounts used our SSN on them so that the profits that she lives on she gets tax free while the kids all of which are making enough now to be in higher tax brackets, and with me even put me up one bracket on several different years has to file it on our taxes, I have paid MORE in taxes over the past 20 yrs then the value of everything I will ever inherit from her and only recourse would be to turn her in for tax fraud) but SHE will get a rebate on her taxes.
So personally I say IF you paid enough taxes to actually deserve a rebate then ok give me a reduction in my taxes, but this is where the old but it only benifits the rich comes in cause you know most of the guys on this board are classed as RICH. So now all of you stop whinning you rich SOBs (those that make the only the rich getting tax breaks are talking about anyone making over $50k per year btw)
