Stimulate: To excite as if with a goad; to excite, rouse, or animate, to action or more vigorous exertion by some pungent motive or by persuasion.
Hot Topic this week seems to be the stimulus checks that tons of Americans will get. Here’s my nickel(formerly known as two cents, darn inflation)
You know I was gonna be a smart guy and pay down a little debt with my $600, but I think I’m gonna be a really smart guy and buy one of those PS3’s, that way I can get a gaming console(that I don’t have time to play) and a blu-ray disc player all at once. Two cool items for the price of 600, but wait.. I’ll be a true American, open up an account at Worst Buy Shortage Town, save 10%, pay it off later(I swear it will go on the to do list), and use the 600 on something more cool like rims for my car, or clothes to go partying in(daddy needs new pair of shoes, perferably with an attractive person attached.)
Heaven forbid I spend it on gas or bills account or something useful, I dunno, like feeding myself. Worst idea at all, would be to put it in a savings account. Yes I know, a savings account doesn’t stimulate anything, I get that. In rebuttal, though, don’t give me 600 bucks and tell me to buy Digital Camera, or Lawn Mower, or a Zune in orde to save the economy.
There you have it, my 10 cents…
