Oh yeah, are we getting another stimulus check? Really?

Can we refuse it?

Because last week my husband bought me a Garmin for my birthday, I bought a handgun, I dropped some money buying clothes for my new job, and I had to pay for a fertility treatment.

We're doing a plenty good job of spending our own money right now. I don't need to spend someone else's.

Stop taking money from a taxpayer and handing it to me to spend. Cuz I'd just buy a Glock.

Oh wait, on second thought...free Glock. Hand it over.

Some rich guy is out his hard-earned money and I get a free gun. Sounds totally fair to me, right? Sigh.

1 What I heard is that Bush was going to ignore the stimulus check idea, and that if it's going to go through, it's going to have to wait until after the election (from some radio show I was listening to; I don't remember which one). Has there been news to the contrary?

2 1) Yes. You can refuse it. 2) Doesn't ALL your income come from taxpayers?

3 FredO -- My own income doesn't come from taxpayers, and my husband pays federal taxes too. Don't get smart with me.

4 FredO: Sarah's husband is paid for doing a job, he doesn't just lay around the house and have a check come every month. There is a difference between being given a check and being PAID!

5 Well crap. It looks like FredO is one of those, "My taxes pay your salary!" hysterical people. Well, my taxes pay Barack Obama's salary. And he doesn't even go to work when our financial system is melting down.

6 You could buy a Glock for one of those 'rich people', say ... me. That would even it up ;-) And if I had a better say in how the dollars I pay in taxes were to be spent, I would take away Obama's paycheck and give it that money instead to soldiers like your husband, Sarah. His job is far more valuable to me!
