Thanks to Valerie for a great e-mail forward.
If only my tax stimulus check didn't have to be used for all of the necessary things listed.
As you may have heard, the Administration said each of us would
get a rebate check to stimulate the economy.
If we spend that money at Wal-Mart, all the money will go to China.
If we spend it on gasoline it will go to the Arabs.
If we purchase a computer it will go to India.
If we purchase fruit and vegetables it will go to Mexico, Honduras, and Guatemala.
If we purchase a good car it will go to Japan.
If we purchase useless junk it will go to Taiwan... ...and none of it will help the American economy.
We need to keep that money here in America.
The only way to keep that money here at home is to spend it at garage sales;
since those are the only businesses still in the U.S
