What refund? I'm sending checks to the state and federal, as usual. Frankly, I prefer it this way, rather than letting them hold my money all year interest free.

Stashing it so that Obama can't get his hands on it.

Are you expecting him to show up at your door and take it?

So you make over $250,000 a year? I thought you were supposed to be expanding your business and hiring people, that's what GW said. :)

Where did that 13k go? Oh, I remember Paid off bills.

The government must really love you! This year, just send the 1000 bucks a month to me, and next February, I'll give it back to you plus a little extra. I'll even sign a contract!

As oppose to having no bailout, and letting AIG take our money. Because so far, they have been the only ones who actually HAVE taken our money.

The New Deal was what got us out of the Great Depression. Read up on it, it was ABSOLUTELY NOT a tax cut program. It was a federal spending act, and was hugely successful. Its the only proven way to get out of a huge recession.

As for my tax refund...my federal refund paid for my state underpayment

I am still holding on to mine waiting for the next round of canon rebates. So far between Jan 17 to present the 100-400L has seen a 17% increase in price. By the time the rebates come, I think I'll just be break even if not worse off had I bought the lens back in january :oops: Oh well but I still have my eye on that lens. The rebates will decide for me if I will pull the trigger or not. I need more stimulus to buy the "last lens" to complete what I need :D
