    Someone sent me this and I LOVE it! Looks good on paper...

    I’m against the $85,000,000,000.00 bailout of AIG et al. Instead, I’m in favor
    of giving $85,000,000,000 to America in a /We Deserve It Dividend/.


    To make the math simple, let’s assume there are 200,000,000
    bona fide U.S. Citizens 18+. Our population is about 301,000,000 +/-
    counting every man, woman and child. So 200,000,000 might be a fair stab
    at adults 18 and up. So divide 200 million adults 18+ into $85 billion
    that equals $425,000.00. My plan is to give $425,000 to every person 18+
    as a /We Deserve It Dividend/. Of course, it would NOT be tax free.


    So let’s assume a tax rate of 30%. Every individual 18+ has to pay
    $127,500.00 in taxes. That sends $25,500,000,000 right back to Uncle Sam.
    But it means that every adult 18+ has $297,500.00 in their pocket.


    A husband and wife has $595,000.00. What would you do with $297,500.00
    to $595,000.00 in your family?


    Pay off your mortgage: _housing crisis solved_.

    Repay college loans: _what a great boost to new grads_

    Put away money for college: _it’ll be there_

    Save in a bank: _create money to loan to entrepreneurs_.

    Buy a new car: _create jobs_

    Invest in the market: _capital drives growth_

    Pay for your parent’s medical insurance: _health care improves_

    Enable Deadbeat Dads to come clean: _or else_

    Remember this is for every adult U S Citizen 18_+ _including the folks_
    who lost their jobs at Lehman Brothers and every other company that is
    cutting back. And of course, for those serving in our Armed Forces.
    If we’re going to re-distribute wealth let’s really do it...instead of
    trickling out a puny $1000.00 (vote buy) economic incentive that is being
    proposed by one of our candidates for President.


    If we’re going to do an $85 billion bailout, /let’s bail out every adult
    U.S. Citizen 18+!/ As for AIG, liquidate it. Sell off its parts. Let
    American General go back to being American General. Sell off the real
    estate. Let the private sector bargain hunters cut it up and clean it up.
    Here’s my rationale. /We deserve it and AIG doesn’t./ Can you imagine the
    /Coast-To-Coast Block Party/! How do you spell Economic Boom?


    I trust my fellow adult Americans to know how to use the $85 Billion /We
    Deserve It Dividend/ more than I do the geniuses at AIG or in Washington DC.
    And remember, The Birk plan only /really /costs $59.5 Billion because
    $25.5 Billion is returned instantly in taxes to Uncle Sam.


    OK, OK... I know. It's as full of holes as Swiss cheese but wouldn't it be great?

    Yeah, that would be nice. I imagine if everyone had that much money at once, the labor market would evaporate overnight!

    Instead of going out and paying off their bills, people receiving the money would simply go out and waste it on luxuries.

    Sad but true.

    2) Since we are a site dedicated to open carry,firearms and gun rights, all posts should relate substantially to one of these topics, even if your comments pertain mainly to freedom andliberty.

    Who cares what the money is spent on? If you decide to buy a luxury yacht consider the following:

    * the materials come from somewhere...mining, processing, transportation, etc.
    * craftsmen must design and build your new yacht
    * once your yacht is delivered (transport again) your dealer will profit as will his employees
    * the yacht club will cost you money and this will be ised to pay employees and subcontractors
    * maintenance, fuel, trips to faraway places...etc.

    What I am getting at is when your dollar is spent it will begin a journey. For every hand it touches it will be used to purchase something and part of that dollar will be recognized as profit.

    Our country grows, we all make more money, when money flows from hand to hand, from business to business.

    When our money is trapped in government coffers...it stales, it produces occasional profit, etc.

    Skid:

    Check the math. $85,000,000,000.00 divided by 200,000,000 is only $425.00
