Bush Stimulus Package, The Next Big Idea

Anyone who says the Bush stimulus package of a $600 tax rebate is not going to stimulate the US Economy hasn’t been watching The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch. I’ve seen more millionaires made from $600 or less on that show than I ever thought was possible. The moral of the story: Your wealth is what you make of it.

Every time I watch that show, I’m completely inspired. Regular people making it big because they had a dream that they pursued. My favorite episode was a few days ago. I can’t remember the guy’s name, but there was a venture capitalist on the show who said that the “side job” never becomes the next million dollar idea. Got me thinking about how many “side jobs” I’ve had over the years. None of them took off. Watching the show, I see nearly all of the stories have something in come: they quit their job went after the dream.

What dream is worth dreaming but not pursuing? Time to take the plunge. Grab that $600 tax rebate and do something with it!


One thought on “Bush Stimulus Package, The Next Big Idea

  1. It is not a tax rebate when people who haven’t paid taxes are getting a check.

    It is not a tax rebate when not all of the people who have paid tax are getting a check.

    It is not a stimulus for our economy when most of the funds will wind up, through Hillary’s friends at Walmart, in China.

    It is not a stimulus for our economy in that I thought we had gotten past the old Keynesian theory of deficits stimulating the economy. We already have a $200 billion deficit– how will more debt help?

    If we are going to insist on burdening our children and grandchildren with more debt, the least we could do is build or repair some roads, or bridges, or help end our dependency on foreign oil by building more refineries or by slapping solar panels on every flat roof in America– something that will help the next generation.

    Anyone receiving this check should know what it is– a welfare check drawn on our children’s checking account.

    This isn’t just sour grapes–and on other sites I’ve received a lashing that anyone earning over $75,000 “doesn’t need” a rebate. That’s not the point. If the government is doling out a check based on “need”–then guess what? That’s welfare. And they should have the guts to call it what it is.

    Shame on every politician that supports this wasteful giveaway, and shame on every person who cashes the check.
