    Yep, works that way up here also.

    People are easily bought, I'm afraid.

    I paid taxes and didn't get anything from W, or the gov. It was my money to begin with, it just ended up where it belongs.

    Thats exactly right. It was our money to begin with, and now we get a little back. Now, EVERYONE who paid taxes gets 300 back if they are single, 600 if they are married. If you didn't pay taxes at all last year...you don't get anything back.

    Pretty simple, eh?

    I know I can put my 300 to grand use right away.

    I know you're not a Bush-fan, Padme Bra, but next time you want to have a tinge of irony in your post, please make sure to include this ugly smilie ( ;) ) so that nerds like myself will not jump on you.

    That is all.

    I'm glad the Bush Jr tax cut plan passed even though he is a pansy moderate/liberal/country-club Republican.

    The more money the American people get back from the federal government to which they sent means the less money to be spent on Bush Jr's asinine immigration amnesty and Third World Bank handouts he will be announcing in Europe.

    At least Bush Jr is a step up from Bill "Joey Buttafuoco" Clinton's pardons and expensive foriegn trips.

    I'll be using my $300 to help pay for the inflated gas costs G Duh-bya and Dick brought us.

    [face_plain]

    Fuel prices were rising the last 2 years of the Clinton/Al "I invented the Internet" Gore Adminstrations.

    This was part due to the lack of Bill "Joey Buttafuoco" Clinton's Energy Policy.
    Like Bush Sr, and now Bush Jr, Clinton is a spineless moderate, meaning all talk no action.

    Doing nothing means nobody is pissed off.
    If you drill more oil you piss of the greens.
    If you raise fuel economy you piss off Truck/Suv drivers, which flourished under The Clintoids.

    If there is a upside to higher fuel costs it's pissing off those SUV drivers with their damn school bus's they drive.

    "I'll be using my $300 to help pay for the inflated gas costs G Duh-bya and Dick brought us."

    What are you talking about? The inflated fuel costs were caused by the environmentalist factions making the US live under oppressive police state laws that disable us from using our otherwise independent fuel sources and keep us under the subjugation of OPEC - dependent on the tyrannical fuel barons of the Middle East.

    To say Bush is the cause of high gas prices is quite possibly the lamest thing I've ever heard. Before I flame you, BobTheGoob, I guess I should make sure that you're not talking about some alternate universe, a sort of "Opposite World" in which blame for a problem that became most prominent before the election is laid on the current administration. Why don't you explain how Bush caused gas prices to go up, or what he can do to make them go down? I'd love to hear how you attribute "high gas prices" to the Bush Administration.

    FYI, gas prices are the cheapest here that they've been since early last fall.

    And I'm getting $300 of my own money back, and I'm fired up about it.

    anakin_girl mentioned earlier that she would defer judgement until she saw what was being cut in the budget. The budget is increasing more than 4%. This tax-cut came from a surplus. Don't worry, the feds still have plenty of money to throw away on your socialist, utopian nonsense. :p

    Good. :p

    Someone mentioned earlier Bush's immigration policy. I don't know that much about it, but the little I have heard says he wants to legalize illegal immigrants. What the h*** is wrong with that?

    You're fired up over 300 extra bucks?
    How is less than a dollar a day going to improve your life? Is the satisfaction of knowing someone else won't be using your 82c a day worth the joy you displayed?

    Who are you refering to Bill "Joey Buttafuoco" Clinton or Bush Jr?
    For it could apply to both.

    One must realize that the base-core groups of the democratic party are
    people in the ghettos and the "alternative lifestyle" crowd.
    Basically people like the ones that sat on the OJ jury.

    Is this thread about the moral/economic implications of the tax cut, or monkeys?

    Chimp was one of roughly 30 words in my post. Did you simply disregard the rest or have you nothing better to answer?
