is this stupid to anyone else?

i just checked our bank account and noticed that we were given $1,800.00 from uncle sam for no reason.
thanks, but honestly, for a country that is $9,366,329,908,302.79 in the hole, why the h are we just giving money away?

*to see what our current amount of debt is go here.

you must not have been scraping by this month, because stupid or not, all we could say was HALLELUJAH!

(and if we all spend it, more people make money, pay more taxes, and the gov. will get more money back. it's a better situation than our whole country heading into a depression and all of us needing welfare. so go spend it!)

I agree that it does seem crazy, but let's just say that not all the relief Moolah went into savings like it should have. I'm doing my part!

i am not complaining, i am just old fashion- if i was in debt i would not give money away i didn't have.
that being said, there is a cute little macbook that i have my eye on...

I can totally see what you are saying Ash! Common sense right? I'm totally conservative when it comes to my moola. I can see what everyone else is saying by pumping back into the economy as well. Who knows what's better? I don't, I'm not a financial guru by any means.
Hmmm... This is what I think: I totally think Bush is trying to go out with a bang! Bush's thought process as he lays down to bed at night: "I'm almost done! YES! Hmmm... how can I get the people to ABSOLUTELY love me before retire from office? Oh, I know! I'll give away MILLIONS of dollars, and then the next poor soul that gets voted in in November will have to deal with it! And then I'll look pretty awesome. Yup, that's it."
Okay, so that's a TOTAL exaggeration, but funny to think about. :)
