The 15 Top Ways for Oregonians to Spend their Stimulus Money

1. Buy rice, corn, or gasoline and hoard.
2. Donate to the PSU search committee so they can find at least one more candidate.
3. Buy annual passes for TriMet and save!
4. Play more video poker — the state needs the money.
5. Put a down payment on a new Monaco Motor Coach and help save jobs in Oregon.
6. Buy a new Made in the USA bike and ride, baby, ride. Then donate to the Save Sauvie Bridge for Bikes effort with the remaining cash.
7. Contribute to Hillary Clinton for President. Her own 109 million dollars is simply not enough.
8. Contribute to Obama’s campaign because change is always good.
9. Contribute to McCain’s campaign because mavericks can be fun.
10. Donate to help save the Central Oregon & Pacific Railroad.
11. Buy a sea lion trap and lend a hand to the salmon.
12. Donate to the effort to make Eastern Oregon our 51st state.
13. Donate to help unionize foster parents.
14. Donate to the effort to try and locate Ted Kulongoski.
15. Buy up all the Thomas Kemper soda you can to preserve the last of the brews with high fructose corn syrup.

  • Alan

    Being that many in government dont want us to have the money anyway I encourage all of us to spend it on other things the government doesnt want us to have.

    16. Buy a gun
    17. Rent an SUV for the weekend and drive somewhere
    18. really piss of the .gov and save it.
    19. Go to Walmart and buy ANYTHING.

    My stimulus payment is going to pay for a canopy (purchased locally, made somewhere back in the mid-eastern US) for my pickup truck.

    I’m caught up on my bills, so I might as well use it for something that hopefully will help the money stay in the USA.

    #20 Donate to a fund to relocate all obsessive eco-politicians to Texas – then save the rest to pay your share of extreme taxes for the high cost of the pet projects these officials have passing off as necessary.

    How about start a chain reaction of less Taxes in the future…

    1. Donate to Oregonians For Immigration Reform and/or get signatures for their initiative #112, to stop the Sanctuary policy.

    2. Just like in Prince William CO. in VA. hundreds(796 in 1st few months) of ESL Students will leave, saving millions. 796 X $12,276 ea. = $9.7 Mil.

    3. Just like in Maricopa CO. in AZ. we’ll save millions more with an expedited removal program for Criminal Illegals to be taken away by the Feds in 72 hr.s and deported. So far they have saved over $8 Mil. IF we eliminate the Sanctuary policy.

    4. Thousands more Illegals will not come to Oregon, but go to Sanctuary areas instead, saving us tens of millions in Health Care(OMIP), “Free” B-fast & lunches, W.I.C., S.S.I., Housing, Jails, Attorneys, Job competition, and on and on…

    • Crawdude

      I signed that initiative on-line, how many signatures do they have so far?

  • Lee

    My stimulus will be going to buy Lloyds of London special insurance for my family in case I am on the Sellwood Bridge when it goes down.

    Spend where. I would invest in Steve Novick. Big rewards and surprise on election night. Sure winner.
