    ok the government just passed out 1.4 trillion dollars over the past 6 months....

    if i gave you each $50,000 per person in your household....what would you spend it on.....

    me i would pay off my line of credit and invest the rest in gold real estate and the stock market.....

    you......

    Pay off the $4k I owe, put $30k into kitchen and floors. Move and live even less expensively. ;)

    We old only dream that the majority of people would spend or invest it wisely.

    My guess is foreign businesses would reap most of the rewards because that's where all the cool stuff comes from.

    Booze and cheap women, that's what I'd spend it on.
