Too Little Too Late

“I gave mine to my mother, who used it to buy food. How else is someone supposed to survive these days on a $1,200 a month social security widow’s benefit check? I would have rather the government use the combined payout to ease the cost of fuel for all of us so that we wouldn’t need a token “stimulus” payment to ease their pain.”

Mommy time

“I bought plane tickets for my son to come out for the summer. I live in San Diego and he lives in St Louis so I dont get to see him very often. The check came at just the right time! Thanks GW!!!”

Vacationing, Communist Style

“Thank You Mr Bush, I spent my stimulus on vacation in a communist country where it seems like we have more freedom than America… Thanks again I really like the war and the patriot act.

Oh and seeing what we accomplished in Vietnam, it really was amazing!

Maybe we can do the same thing to the Iraqi’s. Im sure you can arrange,it. Oh sorry, Habeus Corpus got upheld today,guess im out of luck.”

Paid it back to the IRS

“Last year I increased my withholding allowances so that I wouldn’t have so much withheld from my paychecks, in an attempt to “do the right thing” and break even at tax time. I filled out the W-4 and did the worksheet to figure out how many allowances I should have. I ended up owing $1100 in federal tax. My stimulus payment went towards paying what I owed. Thanks a lot, IRS.”

City of Angels

“I took myself to the City of Angels… Los Angeles. Went to most every tourist site (Hollywood Blvd., West Hollywood, Venice Beach, Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, etc.) but the coolest thing I did was go to the famous Griffith Observatory. Great views from up there. The new Wolfgang Puck restaurant is down below and the food is terrific as are the prices. “
