Below is some helpful advice on how to best help the US economy by
spending your stimulus check wisely:
If you spend the stimulus money at Wal-Mart, the money will go to China.
If you spend it on gasoline, your money will go to the Arabs.
If you buy a computer, it will go to India.
If you buy fruit and vegetables, it will go to Mexico, Honduras and
If you buy a car, it will go to Japan or Korea.
If you purchase useless stuff, it will go to Taiwan.
If you pay your credit cards off, or buy stock, it will go to management
bonuses and they will hide it offshore.
Instead, keep the money in America by:
1 Spending it at yard sales, or
2 Going to ball games, or
3 Spending it on prostitutes, or
4 Beer or
These are the only American businesses still operating in the US.
So, I’m going to go to a ball game and drink beer with a tattooed prostitute that I met at a yard sale.
It’s January 21st today.
Yes I know that you know that.
Still it’s a significant date.
Well, We’ve got the ‘holiday’ season out of the way. (On a personal note, I’ve got my birthday out of the way as well). We’ve long since taken down all the decorations. We’ve got back to work, and done at least one full five day week.
So, now, all that remains, is the rest of the year, and to revive the economy we all need to quit partying and get back to work!
Of course, not everyone wanted to see him elected, but elected he was, and with none of the Floridian-style fixin’ and fiddlin’ that went on eight years ago. A clear mandate in other words, that folks want change.
Many people aren’t sure what changes they want. Lots of folks can’t agree on which changes would be best even if they know what they’d like to see. Most people, however, Obama supporters or not, seem to agree that a change of direction was needed. Many felt that the previous captain of the ship was enjoying the view, but not issuing many useful orders from the bridge anymore (if he ever did).
I personally don’t give a damn what party he’s in; I don’t care what color he is (although I understand the significance of that to many people). I always find it ironic (and this isn’t just a US thing) that some of those big political noises (politicians and media) that bang on the most about patriotism, always seem to put their party before country.
To those that want to trash him before he’s even started, simply because he’s not in your party (and partisan politics does way more harm than good in any case), at least give the guy a chance to succeed or fail.
Politics aside, though, I’d like to be able to be sitting here in four years time, and say that even though he’s screwed up a few things, he’s helped to turn the nation around somewhat, and that he did what he thought was best for the majority of Americans as a whole, and that above all else, he’s proven himself to be a person with decency and integrity, not just at home, but on the world stage too.

A 300 acre complex housing retailers, restaurants, hotels, offices, a supermarket, and a movie theater. If it is all built as planned it will be about three times the size of Centre Pointe outlet center near the North Charleston Coliseum.
It could be a gamble, given the current state of the economy, but of course, that won’t last for ever. What is in question is, even when the economy is racing ahead once more, does Charleston really need any more stores?
What would perhaps be more useful are more stores that are easily accessible to those without a car, and who don’t live on a bus route.
