    Does anyone feel like this has the tone of dad giving you a couple of dollars as a kid to go buy an treat from the neighborhood ice cream truck?

    Eat this...now, doesn't that make you feel better?

    Truthfully, does the government really think this is going to sustain the economy for months?

    Most of the people I have spoken with have said that they're going to use the rebate to pay bills and put whatever remains in the bank.

    This, coupled with the two grand Uncle Sugar sent me out of the blue (he forgot he owed me some travel money), will work nicely in the t_b_f budget.

    The economy is lucky that my sister is getting married this summer and I need to buy a present. The rest is going to help finish off the few hundred bucks I have on my credit card. This is a cheap move along the lines of suspension of the gas tax for a summer. This is what our politicians think of us.

    This fella's just tickled that America has at last embraced the formal redistribution of wealth.

    Then vote every son of a bitch out. No matter the party affiliation.

    Have we given politicians a reason to think anything else?

    Alas . . . the current conglomaration wasn't instrumental in bringing on the
    prevailing mess.

    I look forward to getting some cash.
    With that and income tax returns, it will be pushing a couple grand and that's a fan-fucking-tastic.

    Cheap move or not, I'll take that $600. And even if it goes to bills, that frees up the money in some form down the line.

    They SHOULD lower the federal gasoline tax. It's an outrage.
