Leftist elitist quote o' the day

Note to Michelle Obama, if you're like me you used that paltry return of tax dollars to pay another tax bill, my school district tax. It did feel good to be able to pay my school district tax bill, especially when you consider how wonderfully successful all of our schools are at graduating top rate students/end sarcasm, but not as good as not having that tax bill in the first place. Not to be ungrateful or anything.

Oh and btw, no earrings for me and even if I did purchase earrings they would be the $12 kind from WalMart. So, really I could have used $600 to purchase one pair of earrings, two weeks worth of gas and a month's worth of groceries. Or I could have placed it in an interest bearing account and maybe had a little extra money set aside to help pay for Christmas gifts and my heating bill this winter. So, yeah, that's what I could have done with that. But no, this "quick fix" went right back from wence it came...the government.

“You're getting $600 - what can you do with that?” Mrs. Obama said in Pontiac, Michigan last week. “Not to be ungrateful or anything, but maybe it pays down a bill, but it doesn't pay down every bill every month. The short-term quick fix kinda stuff sounds good, and it may even feel good that first month when you get that check, and then you go out and you buy a pair of earrings."
