Wink How to help the US economy?

...................Investment analyst and entrepreneur Dr. Marc Faber concluded his monthly bulletin (June 2008) with the Following:

'The federal government is sending each of us a $600 rebate. How does one spend this small sum to help the economy to get on its feet again.

Mixed feelings are normal and it goes like this:

If we spend that money at Wall-Mart, the money goes to China.
If we spend it on gasoline it goes to the Arabs.
If we buy a computer it will go to India.
If we purchase fruit and vegetables it will go to Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala.
If we purchase a good car it will go to Germany.
If we purchase useless crap it will go to Taiwan and none of it will help the American economy.

BUT......but.....The only way to keep that money here at home is to spend it on prostitutes and beer, since these are the only products still produced in US. I've been doing my part.'

what say you guys? join them when you cannot win them...


Life is a journey, enjoy the ride..
