    Go-go gadget $600!

    According to the news, Bush is going to send you a thank you for being a citizen check in May for $600 (or $300, $1200+). (maybe it's an apology check, hehe) Anyways! Bonus!!

    What's on your shopping list?
    I think I'm gonna put one together tonight.

    Really not a big fan of the idea. Sure, "free" cash is always nice- until you start to wonder where it's coming from and if it's even going to make a difference.

    Call me a negative nancy, but I somehow don't see some amazing economic turnaround coming about from this proposal...

    Of course not! But if it makes you feel any better you can send me your check so you won't be burdened by it. 8)

    do you have to be over 18 to be a citizen? Do 15 year olds get checks too? MONEY MONEY MONEY!!!!!!!!! I despise the Bush administration, but I don't mind if they give me money. Hey, maybe I like the Bush administration. Maybe I'll support the war and the thousands of iraqis dying every day. It's a good idea! Yeah! And next we need to go into Iran! We are the strongest nation in the world and we have the right to dominate the entire middle east! We should take some oil from the natural reserve in Alaska, why not? Who cares about the environment? You get more money if you don't.

    The rebate is for individuals and families that pay taxes. So... If you don't pay your own taxes your parents might be getting and additional $300 (this is what I last heard was the amount - not even sure if it stayed or changed) for you if you are claimed as a dependent.

    I suggested to my wife that I was going to buy a good GPS receiver (iGPS anyone?) but I was told we are going on a vacation instead. To be a "true patriot" you should spend every dime of the refund domestically. So no imports of Nepenthes.

    in otherwords they are giving YOUR money back to YOU..............the government never "gives" you money in these sort of things....you already gave them the money, they are just giving you a lil bit of your money back.
