Why, why why??

Why does everyone think that we are going to get checks in the mail? Do people not watch the news?

  • I think people just listen to sound bites.. I am a political pundit, and I have few friends I can actually chat with about politics with on any informed level.

  • I don't personally know anyone who is expecting a check in the mail. I suspect that those who asked in here when or if we were getting them we just trolling to make Dems look bad.


    Why would it be bad for Obama to return some of our tax money to us but it was totally awesome that Bush did? I don't get it.

    I've run into a few, and the common element is they're apolitical, which runs about right with most of the questions that popped up here. I don't think it was trolling, I think it was people who don't pay attention. The ones who only get their news from Jon Stewart and Jay Leno.
