    Two kids in University.......what do you think???
    Bandit, I am assigning you as an official HERO OF THE DAY from here in Oakland, CA. Me mom and da helped put me through university, too, and I am grateful.

    May your kids reward you someday with a new set of custom stainless exhaust headers upon their graduating into gainful employment!

    Me? I owed on my taxes this year, so that takes a dent out of my restoration project, which still proceeds apace:

    Lee,

    I heard you stopped in Revzilla to buy a helmet. Whattya think of the Rev'it! Silica Ladies Leather Jacket (Black-White) they have on display? I know, I know.....it's a shameless plug disguised in a harmless question.

    Funny that we have started to travel in the same circles.

    Cheers,

    Tex

    I was going to put mine in my IRA, but they purposely timed it so you wouldn't have it in time for your '07 contribution. Here's something I very recently learned; If you forget to fund your IRA by the cutoff date the only legal remedy is to file an ammended return and lose the deduction.

    The whole stimulus package thing has an Orwellian feel about it to me, a tiny monetary handjob to distract the public. I mean six hundred bucks, big deal, my health insurance has gone up more than that this year. My flood insurance has gone up more than that since the federal government got blindsided by Katrina. It's not even like it's a campaign to encourage things that might be beneficial long-term. Like say maybe "Here's some cash, pay down your credit cards", or "Why don't you start a college fund for your kids". It's more like "Go buy some shit you don't need so you can feel good about it for approximately 24 hours".

    I'm going to buy a new helmet and gloves with mine. I see a lot of brain damage in the world. In general it doesn't seem to be caused by motorcycle accidents, but a new lid can't hurt none the less. And since I mainly work with my hands and it looks like I may have to work harder in the near future, new gloves seem like a good investment.

    How's that for a buzz kill;p

    It didn't work the last time they did it I don't know why the government thinks it will work again...

    Last time it was called "reganomics" and it came in a different form (a massive tax break instead of free money) but the principle behind both is the same - give people money and hope they use it shortsightedly. It didn't work last time because americans carry too much debt (even in the 1980s) and it won't work this time...but I am not exactly going to turn down free money. Yes they timed it so you miss the cutoff of the IRA but they don't want people doing anything lasting with the money.

    That being said I suppose you could have filed early and take the money from your refund to put in your IRA and then used the government "bribe" to replace what you took from your return...that is if you got money back.

    the thread just got very depressing.
