My 300 dollar rebate

I can't see the government rebating it on time. Millions of forms to review and calculate, along with the 2007 tax forms---all by May?
You can't believe that!

But I have been studying what to do with the $300 to best solve the economic situation.

I can't speak for the millions who owe enormous debts, nor those who don't work, nor those who live on social security, but I can guess at what I might do to help.

I will either: put it in the bank and continue spending pretty much as I have, or, buy some government bonds to help the government borrow even more and pay me more interest.
I just don't see where taking it and blowing it all at once on something I don't need or want will help!

Is it possible to buy some of the oil that Iraq is producing and re-sale it here?
My understanding is that we still pay all the bills for Iraq and they have been sending the oil revenue money to Switzerland and other banks!

When you and the rest of the personalities that share your body get your checks, that will get you 1800.00 at 300.00 a personality, then you invest that in one of those used gas places you were talking about earlier and the next thing you know ya'll will have enough money for that therapy.

Please explain to me why you are for the Trillions of our tax dollars spent on re-building Iraq is Ok with you, but you don't want one dollar spent on social problems here?

Do you simply like war?
Do you like Iraqis?
Do you think we should stay there forever and just need to build it up for us?
Are you afraid they will kill us all sometime?
Not if we build the fence!

Show me where I ever said I was for any war. What did this have to do with any social problem. Have you caught another social disease? We educate you and educate you and still you go out and catch things that penicillin won't touch. Well good luck with that and try not to infect anyone else till you get that cleared up.

It ticks me off that I can't get some of my tax dollars back. I'm calling Jesse.... I thinks me is getting discriminated against.

I'd use our family's rebates to help fund our HSA account for this year. Why? Because it's the only tax deferred savings plan my so-called non-discriminatory gumamet will allow me to contribute to. Because I'm supposedly rich.... (eyes rolling again)

Now how stupid is this... Bush in his Saturday radio broadcast supposedly is begging everyone to spend their rebate checks. How about encouraging them to pay off a debt or apply it as an extra payment on their mortgage like Cy probably would? Bush must be a Democrat, because the Lord knows I wouldn't say anything bad about a Republican. Just ask Hack.
