I think this idea is dumb, but if the government wants to go further into debt by sending me a check, I guess I'll take it.

If I don't blow my rebate on a plasma screen TV, does that mean I hate America?

Yes.

This is my view on this idiotic idea.

It couldn't come at a better time though; right before our move to Memphis!

Is a "tax liability" the amount of taxes you paid? I am trying to determine if we are getting the whole enchilada.

I think it is your general hate of America which means that you hate America. But, not spending your money on a plasma screen means that you also hate the troops.

Every time you think about buying a plasma screen and don't do it, a soldier's kitten dies.

what if i were to just buy a play station, is that enough to save a kitten?

It's all going to be based on income. Funny thing is, they consider "middle class" any family making up to $150,000 a year.

Shows how detached they are from reality.

can't they make it into a game show?

here you go:

US REBATE GAME SHOW! SPEND YOUR CASH!

dude gets check, then gets to perform increasingly harder tasks until he either gets more money or no money. all prizes donated. shots of near-homeless family hoping against hope that dad doesn't blow it one more time.

additional interest generated by special contestants:
members of military
ex-celebrity rehab "celebrities"
mentally unstable
ex-that annoying ty home improvement dude show families who're now back on the street
rich people
illegal immigrants

ALL ADVERTISING MONEY GOES TO US GOV!

We're rich!

Hey, $300 extra per kid! I'm gonna be rich! Woohoo!

The gameshow tasks should consist of committing gross acts of consumerism! Also, maybe each contestant could sponsor a U.S. soldier, who would be rewarded or punished, depending on what the contestant does.

Example: Contestant A blows all their money on a giant new SUV, and their soldier is given a Twinkie!

Contestant B uses their money to responsibly pay off their debts, so unfortunately their soldier gets shipped to Afghanistan to get butt raped by Bin Laden!

What sucks now is all the people who recieved Road Home money are going to be up'd a tax bracket if they recieve more then $70,000 and now on top of having to pay taxes on that, they won't be recieving as much if ANY money with these checks.

Heads up Martel!

The people of New Orleans and Iraq have gotten enough of our tax dollars.

here in Los Angeles you need to be making about $90K a year to afford a mortgage...so I don't think that $150K is that far off.

its not even a rebate, its being paid to people on social security and illegal immigrants and kids who never paid in, thats not a rebate thats WELFARE.

enjoy your welfare checks, godless sodomites. all the debt our nation is accruing will be paid with the slave labor of our children for generations to come.

Put KBD in the title of your auctions to automatically double the final bid.

By the way, who figures out how much we get? Is it gonna be like doing my taxes all over again? Because that would be gay.
Posted: Feb 14, 2008 2:54 pm
 
Nah it's gonna be just like the last one 8 years ago or whatever...you'll just get a check in the mail. Fug yeah!

This year rules...because I'm back in school I'm getting a total of 3 grand back from the gub'ment, not including the stimulus check.

Damn, I guess I haven't been on this board much... What was wrong with Florida?

By the time we get the checks, the dollar won't be worth anything anyway. Pay us in Euros.

sure, it don't work though
Posted: Feb 14, 2008 3:11 pm
 
might as well just give us the Renminbi and not bother converting it

Bruce. I think you could become the next Fed chairman.

i am going to buy, by DIRECT mail order:
- buckets of lead paint from china
- one barrel of venezuelan oil
- a few cartons of american spirits from the russian mafia
- a wife from the philippines
Posted: Feb 14, 2008 4:23 pm
 
so if we borrow money from china to pay every taxpayer $600 and they turn around and buy a plasma screen made in china, are the terrorists winning or losing?
Posted: Feb 14, 2008 4:26 pm
 
depends on how the tv was shipped. if dhl shipped it, then, yes, the terrorists win.
Posted: Feb 14, 2008 4:26 pm
 
it's the kittens that lose.
Posted: Feb 14, 2008 5:25 pm
 
illegal immigrants

They pay into Social Security and get nothing from it.
Posted: Feb 14, 2008 5:31 pm
 
neither will most of us.
Posted: Feb 14, 2008 5:33 pm
 
fuck claude gene grinder.
Posted: Feb 14, 2008 6:09 pm
 
I thought it wasn't a rebate, but an advance on next year's refund. So, we'll be getting back that much less next go-round. In other words, they need us to spend the money now. Was I misinformed and it's a true rebate?
Posted: Feb 14, 2008 6:13 pm
 
it cant be a true rebate when theyre giving it to people who didnt even pay taxes. its WELFARE.
Posted: Feb 14, 2008 6:23 pm
 
still, i'm down
Posted: Feb 14, 2008 6:53 pm
 
this is stupid...it's our damned money anyways! most people will just give it back to china via walmart, target etc...or the oil industry terr'ists via gasoline. the plan is to make it seem like it's a "relief" this year but i bet we'll be paying more taxes next year so if effect, we're going to be paying it back in spades...speaking of spades, i'm going to give mine to the indians here in cali. gamblin' at the casinos!!! at least i might have a chance to double it!!
Posted: Feb 14, 2008 7:04 pm
 
spend it at shitgo and support hugo chavez bolivarian revolution in venezuela! fuck the pigs! gas in caracas is 12 cents a gallon!
