    PREDICTION ALERT: Once again that will be the only sign the middle class is back, baby! I’ll probably squirrel it away as a 1/10th down payment towards a US manufactured base model MBP. Totally stoked!

    Just predicting it will be the usual Republican distraction to the middle class still getting crushed.

    Are you talking about Obama and his American Recovery and Reinvestment Act?

    So single parents will get $500 back but have to pay an additional 2400? Sounds like quite a deal!

    But that is made up with the 2500 every family saved with the ACA.

    If came from the same place the 500 and 2400 you are using came from... That place is a situation that may or may not happen with values that really haven't been decided or proven.

    Obamacare will be dismantled by the time you get the rebate. So no worries there.

    If you aren’t going to use it for something fun then maybe you can put it towards another month of supporting your 28-year-old college educated kid who can’t afford to move out. That should be a fun month!

    That damn 15" MBP. It's so beautiful but it's so expensive. $500 discount on top of the refurb discount whenever that will happen.

    My health care costs have gone way up in the last 5 years. No savings here.

    The ACA made a lot of premiums go up. Even if ACA is deleted costs will not go down.

    It's just like in 2005 when gas went as high as $5 a gallon. All the food prices went up because "it costs so much to ship all that food". Now that gas is back down to $2.10 a gallon food prices should have returned to the pre 2005 levels, nope. They stayed right where they are.

    There's probably some truth to that, but it ignores the possibility of any other significant price influences. My health insurance was also increasing prior to the ACA. Inflation is a bit ridiculous in that regard.

    I don't care for the bars, but there's no need to feel bad for the girls. They do that because it pays more than some other option. The money tends to be somewhat inflated due to the social stigma, although I would imagine the variance may be high there.

    I guess I don't view it that way. It looks like any other crappy job with minimal skill requirements. It just pays more.

    I disagree. There is dignity in all work, except selling yourself for money.

    Classic battle between primal instinct and higher brain functionality. We highly prize physical beauty but then chastise people for using it to their advantage.
