OPEN FORUM: So Whaddya gonna do with your $13?

Marc Comtois

Hey, looks like the average Joes and Jills are going to get a whole $13 extra a week thanks to the "stimulus" bill. So, what are YOU gonna do with all that extra coin?

Pay my increased property tax because the town needs more money, yet my employer isn't giving me any more money. We're in a recession. There's deflation, no inflation. Why do towns need more money? They should be giving it back. They must have budgeted petroleum energy at a much higher rate last year than they're paying now. That must be a surplus in the budget, no?

I think I'll go buy an ounce of Silver, and hold onto it for a while, so when hyperinflation finally kicks in, and the dollar becomes as valuable as a Wiemar-era deutschmark, I can buy some food and water for use in my post economic apocalypse bunker. :)

I'm going to buy $13 worth of 'Don't Blame Me For This Obamanation' bumper stickers.

The brain damaged "progressives" will be back for another trillion in July. Count on it.

Banking it to go back into my 401(k) once the market turns around.

Well, the $13 will make it easier for people to buy a bakers dozen of donuts.

Of course, without real jobs, they'll have plenty of time to eat those donuts but those who voted for the ObamaMama will get 'crow' as a topping.
