Just a simple Cherokee trial lawyer, Barkman has been forcing his opinions on others in print since, for reasons that passeth understanding, he was an unsuccessful candidate for state representative in 2002. His philosophy: "If people had wanted me to be nice, they should've voted for me."

Send Your Tax Dollars to Red China!

Spend them at Wal-Mart, the focus of evil in the modern world. Actually, as I think Bill Maher put it, the only way to help the American economy with your tax rebate check would be to spend it on hookers, meth, or Indian Casinos.

Definately not. Mama was very big on garage sales as well call 'em in Texas when I was a kid.

Do Texans even call them garage sales when they are not in the garage? There's always the term "rummage sale", which unfortunately sounds too much like "rubbish sale". But come to think of it, maybe that is a better name for some.

And as for going to Wal-Mart with the check? Good idea.

Yep, for some unknown reason, they are always garage sales. And I think it's that way pretty much throughout the South. Just another one of our folksy little quirks, like grits or George Dubya Bush.

And Waffle Houses. I've seen them. and they look like dirty yellow buildings filled with smoke. Never look too tempting.

How about travel--within the US, I mean.

The Frogette and I just spent a week pumping our rebate check into PA's economy. (Of course, we had a friend graduating from Pitt, but I digress...)

It depends on where you travel, given how much of the country is mortgaged to Red China or Dubai.
And my daddy graduated from Penn State.
