A Rebate to Cure My Ills

I recently received a notice from the IRS descibing that I have qualified for a rebate check from the Goverment (which means all of us for all of you who don’t habla). Many people I speak with think this is a great idea and wonder what they are going to spend all the money on. This shows that most people don’t really think very hard.

We are taking money from the producers and giving it to those that the Government deems worthy of the money. These ideas sound great when we are reading the exploits of Robin Hood stealing from the rich to give to the poor, but it’s not such a great story in the real world.

This is not going to stimulate the economy Mr. Bush!

This is not going to stimulate the economy Mr. Bush!
This is not going to stimulate the economy Mr. Bush!
This is not going to stimulate the economy Mr. Bush!

There, maybe if I say it several times it will sink in.

When are we going to face facts with the economy? Maybe some banks need to fail to get the point. Maybe some of these idiots taking bad loans need to go bankrupt to learn a lesson. What happened to personal responsibility? We’ve become the nanny state looking to Big Brother to take care of us and it just seems to be getting worse. Who really has the cahones to stand up and say, we’re not going to take it. Twisted Sister had it right back in the 80’s.

Of Course, that’s just my opinion.
