I plan on putting it in a savings account so I have it when it comes time to pay it back next year during tax season. That is what happened last time, there is no such thing as free money!

Halliburton stock... Of course I'm not sure that $600 will buy me enough water to boil ALL of Halliburton!~)

Wow! A whole $600! Oh, wait a minute, how much is Gasoline? Oh. Heating gas, oil? Oh. How strong is the dollar on the international market? Oh, really it's so weak some major world landmarks aren't accepting it for admission anymore. How about oil prices? Oh, and you've heard there's a movement afoot to discard the dollar as the currency of trade in oil in favor of the Chinese Yuan. Mortgage market? Oh, you've how many "for sale" signs in your area? Yea, BushCo and the Dummies are gonna give us $600! Anybody notice what business gets!? I thought not. I'm so happy I could almost weep for my grandchildren's future

Show me the money, its mine anyway. The govt taxes the hell out of us and acts like they're doing us big favor by giving it back. the casino idea ain't bad or new flat screen HDTV. Walmart here I come!

It will pay bills for sure. Why isn't this kind of economy stimulant based on income vs. # of people in home? Income consideration first, then multiply by # of people in home.

Why doesn't the government create new industry instead of handing out corporate welfare the same damn multi million and multi billion dollar corporations who are shipping jobs abroad or are demanding that our military protect their special interests abroad.

New Industries would be real stimulus!

Merrill, so go to an investment adviser and invest in a start up that you believe in. Encourage your friends to do the same.

That's the beauty of having our money back. We get to decide where to spend it. IMO, it would be good if we could indicate on our tax filings every year where we would like the taxes we pay in to go. Now that would be voting with your dollars.

Jumpin- Please consider Sears as they have some kickass deals on HDTV's. Please, please don't spend it at Walmart though. We really don't need that money going straight to China.

I think our money will go toward buying a house. Now is about the best time ever to buy since the market sucks and intrest rates are low.

Go to Buffalo Bob's and have a full slab of St. Louis style ribs, taters piled high to the sky, and 3 or 4 fritters. Then put the rest in the bank. Damn those ribs are good !!!! Thank you, Lynn
