… and Oregon, Georgia, The Dakotas, well… thanks everyone.
Apparently, I am
due getting somewhere in the neighborhood of 3,000 bucks from the Federal Government (not that the government actually has its own money, they took ours). If you make under gobs and gobs of money a year, you too are going to get a check. Praise be the Federal Reserve. Here is what Congressman Boehner, A REPUBLICAN!!!, had to say about this deal:
“You know, many Americans believe that Washington is broken,” the Ohio Republican said. “But I think this agreement and I hope that this agreement will show the American people that we can fix it and will serve to move along other bipartisan agreements that we can have in the future.”
Three questions to ask yourself as you cash this check…
How does giving folks a bunch of new money help our economy, where debt is one of the contributing factors to its floundering? By new I mean, printed up just for the occasion.
Is this kind of bipartisanship a good thing? I liked it better when they were so deadlocked they could not pass a spending bill.
If we did not earn this money coming to us then how does it square with the 8th Commandment? (for further study see Doug Wilson’s sermon, titled The Forgotten Duty, on this topic) If Uncle Sam plays middle man is it not just as egregious a theft?
I am really struggling with that last part by the way… We have a rental house that has been without a tenant for 6 months. Two mortgages can put a hurtin’ on budget. Perhaps this is like the Egyptians giving out going away presents to the Hebrew children as they headed out toward the Promised Land.
Nuts, that does not work… If I cash that check then my wagon would be full of gold from my Hebrew neighbors too. That reminds me…
Thanks New York.
