Sometime this year,  we taxpayers will again receive another ‘Economic   Stimulus’ payment. This is indeed a very exciting program,  and I’ll explain it by   using a Q and A format:   
Q.  What is an ‘Economic Stimulus’ payment ?

A.  It is money that the federal government will send to taxpayers.

Q.  Where will the government get this money ?

A.  From taxpayers.

Q.  So the government is giving me back my own money ?

A.  Only a smidgen of it.

Q.  What is the purpose of this payment ?

A.  The plan is for you to use the money to purchase a  high-definition TV set,  thus stimulating the economy.

Q.  But isn’t that stimulating the economy of China ?

A.  Shut up.

Below is some helpful advice on how to best help the U.S. economy by  spending your stimulus check wisely:      
*  If you spend the stimulus money at Wal-Mart,the money will  go to China or Sri         Lanka .   
*  If you spend it on gasoline,  your money will go to the  Arabs.
*  If you purchase a computer,  it will go to India , Taiwan or  China .

*  If you purchase fruit and vegetables, it will go to Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala

*  If you buy an efficient  car,  it will go to Japan or Korea .

*  If  you purchase useless stuff,  it will go to Taiwan .

*  If you pay your credit cards off, or buy stock, it will go to management bonuses and they will hide it offshore.

Instead,  keep the money in America by:

1)  Spending it at yard sales,  or    

2)  Going to ball games,  or  

3)  Spending it on prostitutes,  or   
4)  Beer or    

5) Tattoos.
(These are the only American businesses still operating in the U.S. )
Conclusion:   No need to thank me,  I’m just glad I could be of help.

  1. St. Paul in refuting the Gnostics, who taught paganism in the place of true Christian faith and did so for filthy money's sake - the Billy Grahams and Popes of that day; St. Paul said that the love of money is the root of all evil. Absolutely true.
