I filled out my taxes today, I ended up owing a little, but then I found out I was eligible for the $600 stimulus tax rebate. $600 is good news, who wouldn’t want $600? However, this good feeling is tarnished somewhat when I think about the mind numbing deficit that our Republican government is once again pushing us through. I seem to remember something about fiscal responsibility being associated with Republicans, but this is apparently no longer the case. Unfortunately the country appears to be run by short sighted idiots who only care what happens for the four years they are around. They in turn are surrounded by savvy bankers who are more then willing to up the limit on their credit card. I honestly think that the country is being run by the Bluths. When you think about it Gob’s management style actually bears a striking resemblance to the policies of George Dubya.
To protest this lack or foresight and out of pure spite I will be spending my $600 economic stimulus package in another country, the Czech Republic to be exact. At this point I figure the only party that takes fiscal responsibility seriously is the Libertarians. As there is virtually no chance of them being elected I have decided to be petty. I am taking my stimulus package and I am leaving the country.
