Regarding the $800 tax rebates comes another quote from CoyoteBlog:
Far be it for me to presume to tell people how to spend their own money (what do I look like, a Congressman?) but here is a bit of advice: Save it. Because this is not a grant, it is a loan.Bonus:* Also via CoyoteBlog, individual sovereignty: New York style.
[*I guess that's not really a bonus, but I just wanted to throw it out there in case you're feeling too happy]
