"Sometime this year, taxpayers will receive an Economic
Stimulus Payment. This is a very exciting new program that I will
explain using the 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. No, they are borrowing it from China. Your children are
expected to repay the Chinese.
"Q. What is the purpose of this payment?
"A. The plan is that you will 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 US
economy by spending your stimulus check wisely:
If you spend that money at Wal-Mart, all the money will go
to China.
If you spend it on gasoline it will go to Hugo Chavez, the
Arabs and Al Queda
If you purchase a computer it will go to Taiwan.
If you purchase fruit and vegetables it will go to Mexico,
Honduras, Chile, and Guatemala.
If you buy a car it will go to Japan and Korea.
If you purchase prescription drugs it will go to India
If you purchase heroin it will go to the Taliban in
Afghanistan

If you give it to a charitable cause, it will go to Nigeria.
And none of it will help the American economy.
We need to keep that money here in America. You can keep the
money in America by spending it at yard sales, going to a baseball game,
or spend it on tattoos, since that is the only businesses still in the US.

such a sad and ignorant email.

clearly the person who created this has no concept of how an economy functions.


Even if you are against the economic stimulus like this one, as I am, there is a proper way to argue against this.

sure. I'll go through some examples on this email.

If you spend that money at Wal-Mart, all the money will go
to China.


No. When you shop at any US store, the money you spend will be used to keep that store open...which in turn will keep those Americans employed.

If you spend it on gasoline it will go to Hugo Chavez, the
Arabs and Al Queda.


Lol. wat? 35% of the oil we use is produced in this country. Many of the oil companies are either American or British owned. (not Al Qaeda) And all oil companies in the US employ American workers...thus your money is keeping them employed.

The top computer companies (Dell, Compaq, HP) are all American owned and operated.

The western US (mainly California) produce a large majority of the fruits and vegetables that we consume.

All the major automobile manufacturers produce many of their cars inside the United States. (yes even the Asian car companies)

As for prescription & illegal drugs, they both keep many Americans employed. From the pharmaceutical company workers all the way down to the drug dealers selling meth, crack, and heroin.


I agree that we consume more than we produce in this country, and many companies outsource jobs and import raw materials from other countries, but there are endless reasons for that.

The only way we can ever fix our economy, is to fix the federal government.

We have to stop these trillion dollar wars. We have to stop these silly bailouts and stimulus packages. And stop the insane amount of taxes we pay.

Imagine how much money you'd have right now if the government didn't tax the fuck out of you.

Tech, this at least gets people thinking though. It does its job as to shedding some light on americans. Most americans think that they are too good for a lot of jobs. I have guys coming into my data center asking for $100k plus for a linux admin and they can't even fix a test box we have and our $35K can fix it. Americans need to be brought back to the ground and so does the government. Start from there.

Not sure I understand what you're trying to say dude... I agree that most people think they're good for too much... but, how does this help bring people back to the ground?

If an email like this gets you thinking, odds are it's the first time you've used your brain in a very long time.

this type of junk email is made by Republicans who are bitter that a Democrat is president. like most political propaganda it lacks any real substance.

That goes both ways. There where plenty of substance lacking emails floating around such as this the past 8 years from bitter democrats.

no doubt. Thats why I never like to read political emails. They will inevitably be biased and very factually incorrect.

Republicans and Democrats are both equally responsible for this mess we're in.
