Whose Economy Shall We Stimulate?

Thanks to The Column Reloaded (Ericsomething's Blog)we now know exactly what we can do with the tax rebate checks we await. Eric, a fellow Charleston blogger, got the following e-mail from his brother:

Our Note - they forgot guns :)

Your Tax Rebate:

The federal government is sending each and everyone of us a $600 rebate.

If we spend that money at Wal-Mart, the money will go to China.

If we spend it on gasoline it will go to the Arabs.

If we purchase 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 Japan.

If we purchase useless crap it will go to Taiwan ...

...and none of it will help the American economy.

The only way to keep that money here at home is to buy prostitutes, weed, beer, and tattoos, since these are the only products still produced in the USA.

Thank you for your help & please support the US.

We are two SCU graduate students who do not believe the so called economic stimulus (tax rebate) is going to stimulate the economy but rather we think it's just another way to put our country in even further debt.
Help us prove or disprove our theory by taking our survey and TELL YOUR FRIENDS...we need data:
