Keep The Dream Alive!

I had previously pondered whether or not the real intention behind the tax rebates was to enable folks to pay off debt... increasing the liquidity of our financial institutions in the process and improving our overall debt ratio.

Hah!! Stupid me.
Congress passed and Bush signed a stimulus package that will send tax rebates to many families and businesses. But some fear it will come too late — or that people will use the money to save or pay off debt, rather than go on a spending spree that would boost the economy.

Bush gently urged people to do the latter. "When the money reaches the American people, we expect they will use it to boost consumer spending," he said.

So get to it... it's your duty as mindlessly materialistic robo-patriots to buy some cheap Chinese imports. Spend for your country, people! It's part of the Bush doctrine, see? If we all just keep pretending it's a sound economy, it will BE a sound economy.
