As I’m sure those American readers out there are well aware, our federal government will be sending out rebate checks to most taxpayers this May in an effort to stimulate our faltering economy. Given the ballooning federal deficit and many challenges facing our country currently, I feel this rebate is recklessly ill-advised. To boot, many economists predict it will have almost no effect on the economy whatsoever.
Thus, I intend to donate my rebate to organizations doing the work I wish my federal tax dollars were doing. I encourage you not only to do the same, but also to take that further scary step of urging those around you to do it too! Crazy, I know.
