Exclamation Hope I don't get banned or in trouble for this

"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. No, they are borrowing it from China. Your children are expected to repay the Chinese.

"Q. What is the purpose of this payment?
"A.. The plan is that you will 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 US economy by spending your stimulus check wisely:

If you spend that money at Wal-Mart, all the money will go to China.
If you spend it on gasoline it will go to Hugo Chavez, the Arabs and Al Qaeda
If you purchase a computer it will go to Taiwan.
If you purchase fruit and vegetables it will go to Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala (unless you buy organic).
If you buy a car it will go to Japan and Korea.
If you purchase prescription drugs it will go to India
If you purchase heroin it will go to the Taliban in Afghanistan
If you give it to a charitable cause, it will go to Nigeria.

And none of it will help the American economy. We need to keep that money here in America.
You can keep the money in America by spending it at yard sales, going to a baseball game, or spend it on prostitutes, beer (domestic ONLY, preferably microbrews), or tattoos, since those are the only businesses still in the US.

We depend so much on overseas materials it is not even funny I am afraid I will never see the day when we say enough is enough and start making our own materials. But that day will never happen cause are government doesn't want to hurt the feelings of other countries it's time we get back to basics.....It's time to see labels and etc. that say MADE IN AMERICA.............................

I remember back in the 80's. There was a big push by Unions wether it was the UAW, National Commercial and Food Workers, National Brotherhood of Electricians, The United Miners Association, pretty much all unions. Heck there was commercials supported by these unions to by American. Country Music Singers were writing and singing songs about it supporting America with buying American made products.

But now we are so dang greedy that we want the best deal, will pay the cheapest price. There for we forced our companies to look outside the US to get supplies to make there products. Or they would completely relocate outside the US to get cheaper labor.

The UAW back in the 80's and 90's pushed the Big Three to pay high labor costs. But yes back then the automotive induistry was booming. The economy was booming. But now that is all changed.

So we brought this all upon ourselves.

If you want to stimulate the economy get rid of all the illegal immigants and all the lazy SOB's that live off the gov't.

But some idiots (libs) want to give these people free health care, more welfare, etc. What motivates them to get off their azzes and go to work? Nothing.
