Bills and more bills.

I'm not so sure that I've spent my original Stimulus yet...

Original stimulus was used to pay SWMBO's quarterly taxes. If we get another, bills or more of the same.

The last stimulus was all about the brewing....This one will probably be all about the gas tank....Remember the good ole days 8 months ago when the world was young a green, gas hadn't gone over 4 bucks, and we all had retirement money?

*sigh*

Forget "were you better of 4 years ago, then you are now." the bigger question is "were you better off 8 10 months ago..)

Actually if I don't buy it for myself for Christmas...then I'll at least buy a wort chiller.....I've been holding off hoping I'd stumble upon a rolled up coil of copper on trash day somewhere....so I'll prolly just bite the bullet and buy one.

Another "stimulous" rebate is about the dumbest idea I've heard from Washington (and that's saying a lot).

People aren't going to spend it (nor should they!), not when they're as scared of the economy as they are today. It's not going to stimulate anything! For any Republicans who might support it, can you think of a tax cut/rebate that's LESS supply-side?

Save it for when the treasury goes bankrupt? OH wait, the dollar would be worthless anyway. Maybe I'll spend it all at Spec's. Wonder how many cart fulls of bombers I could buy....

I'm going to buy stock with it, surely it can't keep going down right?

Oh, so this is what a failing, flailing monster looks like as it goes down in flames? Holy crap, are they actually talking about another stimulus check?
