Stimulus / Response 11:52 pm // Tuesday, May 13, 2008Posted by apm in amusing, business, ebay, merchandise, pisces iscariot, releases.
The month of May brings many things including flowers, but for many tax paying Americans this particular May also brings an Economic Stimulus Payment from the United States Government thanks to the Economic Stimulus Act of 2008. Eligible people will receive up to $600, married couples will get $1,200, and if you have kids, you’ll get $300 for each eligible child under 17.
So, what’s a Smashing Pumpkins fanatic with $600 in “free money” sitting in their bank account to do? A quick perusal of eBay this evening revealed two possibilities. First, an I Am One Limited Potential 7″ inch single and then a hand-numbered Pisces Iscariot vinyl with Not Worth Asking/Honeyspider II 7″ bonus disc. Just $511.94 and the Buy It Now feature and these rarities will be in your mailbox in no time. And you’ll make Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke very pleased indeed. Plus you’ll still have $88 to blow on a tank of gas.
