What to with your stimulous pork check (if you get one)
n/a | 2/16/09 | Me

Posted on 02/16/2009 12:36:50 PM PST by chemicalman

Like most of you folks here, I didn't want this pork stimulous bill to go through.

But since it passed and Obama is going to sign off on it, may as well take advantage of the micro freebie that we get. Which is probably a $400.00 single / $800.00 married check.

I did not expect any type of handout from the Pelosi bunch, it was unexpected, so I don't want my $400.00.

I will donate a portion of my check when recieved to the FreeRepublic site, and the remainder to the next conservative Presidential candidate. Be it Palin, Jindal, Hunter. I will not give it to the GOP in general as the RINOs may get their hands on it.

Kind of my way of "gettin back at da man".

What are your plans to stimulate?

I will apply mine to debt. I only hope I can deleverage quickly enough to save even a bit of a decent life. I work in the commercial construction industry which by June of this year will be eviscerated beyond all comprehension by then.

I didn’t the last one. Why would I expect another?
I’m either too poor or too rich, I can’t recall what the reason was.

Just picked up a nice little 30-30 Marlin lever action, just always wanted to play cowboy I guess. What I really need now is a good distance shooter like the old K-98. Any idea if those re-machined Yugoslav guns shoot well? Depending on how things go I may need to take some farmers up on their nuisance permits to keep food on the table this coming year.

Actually $13 a week will help me,the problem is that any help that I will personally receive from it comes at a far greater price to the country at whole.

You don’t get a check.

IF YOU HAVE A JOB, you get an extra $13 a week and after Jan, $8.

Are you feeling stimulated yet?

It’s not really a freebie.

I think the $13 IS less in taxes. It’s not like they are sending your job $13 for you. They just have to deduct $13 less out of your paycheck.

10% off the top goes to my church. 50% of the remainder goes toward debt and the final amount goes toward something fun for the family.

Shovel jobs don’t start until the end of 2010.

The San Fransisco endangered Marsh Mouse gets their $30 million next week. And yes, I mean a real mouse, like in squeaky and grey.

So your church will get $1.30 more a week. I hope you have a lot of people in your church.

At the rate we are going ammo will be worth more than USA currency.

“They just have to deduct $13 less out of your paycheck.”

I didn’t plow through the bill. Does that begin soon? Instead of all the extra pork, if they had increased that tax deduction even more, it definitely would help people out.

Would have helped also on the state tax too, but according to some FR threads today, several states are in big trouble. Might have been the final straw for them.

That’s not too difficult for replacement cost calculations, which is what 95% of my clients have. But inflation does come into the calculation when there aren’t as many contractors around to rebuild a damaged building and you can’t replace it for what it’s insured at.

This a shaky market to say the least.
