Wasting MY Money

We got a letter in the mail yesterday stating that we will be receiving our census form in the mail soon. Was this necessary? How many millions of taxpayer dollars (I'm a taxpayer) were spent mailing these notices to the millions of people in the USA? Hello, postage isn't cheap.

This ranks right up there with the road signs that state (paraphrase)"This project was paid for with stimulus money". Why not use the millions that it took to make the signs and do something useful (road repair, bridge replacement, fill potholes, etc.).

There must be a government agency that does noting but sit around all day thinking of new ways to waste taxpayer money.

I'll step off my soapbox now.

Sir! I said the same exact thing when we got our notice in the mail, too!!!! Good grief! Do they think we are eagerly waiting to get the census forms? That we are standing by our mailboxes in anticipation? hellur.
Government of the government, by the government and for the government.
