I just got $1,319 from Uncle Sam direct deposited into my bank account!

Is spending it all on Guinness, coke and strippers what they intended?

George Bush is handing out money mang!

Updated March 10, 2008

Starting in May, the Treasury will begin sending economic stimulus payments to more than 130 million households. To receive a payment, taxpayers must have a valid Social Security number, $3,000 of income and file a 2007 federal tax return. IRS will take care of the rest. Eligible people will receive up to $600 ($1,200 for married couples), and parents will receive an additional $300 for each eligible child younger than 17.


Kind of a dumbfuck move, we're in debt, what, $3 trillion for this Iraq bullshit, our economy is circling the drain, gas is practically $4 a gallon.

It's a desperate bid to stimulate the economy, it's like they finally learned that when they fuck us over too bad, we can't afford to subsidize the upper 1%'s lavish lifestyle.

What the fuck though, I'm not turning $1300 down.

I can't give them the goo if I'm high on coke and drunk, that's why whores aren't necessary.

Basically, our economy is relatively in the shitter right now, so the eggheads at the Financial helm say that if they give us some money back from our taxes, we'll spend it like a kid in a candy store and give the economy a shot in the arm. If you're single, you get about 600-800 USD, married about 1200 USD, and for each kid you get about 300 USD extra.

Matter of opinion, but I'm not one to argue politics.

I will say this though - I don't see what a lot of the big deal is - we pay too damn much in taxes anyway, and so we're supposed to nut because we're so happy that they gave us some of our hard-earned money back? WTF? Work Harder: Millions on Welfare Depend on You! Eff that.

Actually, that was just the easy to explain part.

You had naval impressment, admiralty courts, a lot of business interests that stood to acquire better standings, and many other things.


I really hate how a simple story for 5 year olds is also used as cultural signaling by/for adults.


edit: but you did say helped. So I'm not attacking you.

I'm just sayin'

It's kind of like the whole "Civil War was for slavery!" thing, even though it was mostly about the power of the Federal Government over the State's Government's.

Quite a few American microbrews are pretty good. Sure, they don't measure up to some of the German stuff I've had before, but Germans have been brewing good stuff centuries before the United States even existed. I mean the only thing they're better at than brewing is baking.

I don't know, I was pretty impressed with that Queen of Head chick. Whatever happened to Aonaran anyway? Ever since he hooked back up with her, haven't seen much of him.
