thoughts: Where did this magic money come from?


I got this in the mail this week.

stimulus check white out

And that's cool.

$600 is a lot of money and I can definitely use it.

But where did this magic money come from?

Did a stork bring it?
Did George Bush borrow it from his father?
Did all Guantanamo Bay prisoners start paying rent?

How can the IRS afford to give every tax paying citizen $600? That's billions of dollars. During a recession?

I didn't even have my own text book in my high school Chemistry class. I had to share with another kid. And those were the halcyon days of the US Economy.

Wait, wait...did CHINA loan us the money? (I don't know, I'm just guessing.)

Does anyone know?
