Seriously? A 2+ Million Dollar Superbowl Ad Wasn't Enough?

Got this in the mail the other day...
I wonder how many households this was sent to, using our precious, non-existent (as in,  collected-but-already-spent) tax dollars?



I mean, did we REALLY need a letter informing us that the Census was going to be sent out?

I had the exact same reaction. Unfortunately, I'm afraid there are a lot of people who need the reminder.

It's very frustrating for me that people are so lazy about being informed.

I appreciate mail to let me know more mail is coming.

If you're going to send me an email, please send me an email first to let me know its coming.

Thank you.

It drives me crazy to see all the Wasted money by out government.....can't we re-think these things!!!

We received one of those too. It seemed a little odd that they send a letter out to prepare you for the letter they're ABOUT to send out. Why not just skip the first letter and save some money?

I'm laughing at JoeyRes.

Seriously, so stupid. They really think the public are so unitelligent that we need a heads up. Morons.

After you mail your census form back in, be sure to watch for the thank-you note the government will mail to you for participating!

Matt and Amanda said...

We got that one, then the census, and the following week we got another letter just making sure we knew they sent the census the week before.
