This tax rebate pisses me off!
The recession in America has begun, the housing market is crashing and burning (which i have been highly affected by) and the solution....tax rebate checks. A 170 billion dollar economic stimulus bill, highlighted by Tax Rebate Checks has been issued for Americans. Read more about the US Tax Rebate Checks here.
An average rebate of $600 dollars per person will be issued in an attempt to reverse or at least slow down the economic recession and give us all a little more spending money. It is truly pathetic.
Why the rebates are lame
America is already billions of dollars in debt, we are cutting important programs in the schools, we are not paying veterans for their medical bills (directly caused by conditions while serving their country), a huge percentage of Americans cannot afford healthcare, and we are letting corporations unethically rape the world for profit.
This money should be going to fix the problems with America, the money should not go to pump money back into the zombie inducing system of debt and self indulgence. This is a lame excuse to attempt to mend the gigantic hole that George Bush's government has ripped in the fabric of our culture.
If you don't like it, don't accept it
I am going to find a proper charity, and when my check comes in the mail I'm going to send it off to the chosen charity. I do not want the US Governments blood money. The money that the government is no doubt sucking from the unjust war in Iraq.
I hope more Americans like myself will realize what a ridiculous cop out this rebate check is and funnel it into a correct location. A charity or donation to help rebuild the fabric of America's crumbling culture. Which is where the money should be going in the first place.
In the past I have written some blogs about Every Living Creature and posting about my desires to live forever.
Then I ask the simple question....Is Anyone else worried?
