    Here is some helpful advice on how to best help the US economy by spending your money wisely:
    If you spend your money at Wal-Mart, the money will go to China or SriLanka
    If you purchase a computer it will go to India, Taiwan or China
    If you purchase fruit and vegetables, it will go to Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala.
    If you buy an efficient car, it will go to Japan or Korea.
    If you purchase useless stuff, it will go to Taiwan.
    If you pay your credit cards off, or buy stock, it will go to management bonuses and they will hide it offshore.

    Instead. Keep the money in America by:
    Spending it at yard sales, or
    Going to Ball games, or
    Spending it on prostitutes, or
    Beer, or
    Tattoos.
    (these are the only American businesses still operating in the U.S.)

    Conclusion:
    Go to a ball game with a tattooed prostitute that you met at a yard sale and drink beer all day!

    (No need to thank me. I’m just glad I could be of help.)

    I enjoy looking through Craigslist. Local cash deals are always a good way to help those around us.

    Sounds stupid to some but hey it works.

    + 1 on Craigslist. Great place to buy and sell, or give away stuff.

    Spend your money at a local restaurant or winery.:thumbup:

    Buy some American made bullets and shoot them up at an local range. Of course, you must use an American made gun, uh.....Ruger maybe.

    Deschutes Brewery. Local gunshops. If I smoked and it was the fourth of July, I'd have all four of the BATFE...
