In the never-ending battle to stoop to the lowest possible level out there, we now have 'stimulus shaming.'

Let's start with the most concise definition of a stimulus check that I've found from "Investopedia":

Stimulus checks are intended to stimulate the economy by providing consumers with some spending money. When taxpayers spend this money, it boosts consumption and drives revenues at retailers and manufacturers and thus spurs the economy.

Do you get it now? There's no shame in someone buying themselves a TV or a new set of tires; that's exactly what they're supposed to do. They spend that money, and the business that takes that money spends it on employees, who spend their money, and so on.

For a nation that thinks politics is our new national sport, there's a ton of people out there that don't know the basics about the economy.

Sure, I understand that some people need to use the stimulus money for rent and bills, and I am 100 percent down with them taking care of their obligations. But if there's a little leftover, there's no shame in getting the super family pack of fireworks or throwing some bills at a local dancer because those people have to eat, too.

Remember, one of the main reasons the stimulus checks exist is to stimulate the economy. We need cash circulating. You figure out the best way to spend it.

And to everyone else, one more thing; mind your own damn business.
