What are you going to do with your rebate check? I know that I will have the opportunity to look directly at it for a moment before my Lady Love snatches and does something responsible with it like pay down a bill or some such nonsense. I imagine that many of you out there in radio land are in the same situation as I am in that regard.
An interesting point of discussion that I would like to hear your opinions on. The government has determined that giving us a "rebate check" will stimulate the economy. If this is true does it not go to reason that taxing us in the first place interferes with the economy? Perhaps we could have a grand experiment in this country and suspend on personal taxes for the a period of one year. I wonder what that would do for the country's economy? Of course I am one of those nuts that doesn't believe that it would amount to much as we are working with a fiat currency. I would like to see a return to a true objective value (gold standard - gold coins - real money) that is not tied to a government but to the market itself.
