Census (81/365)


The reason the government sells the census as your ticket to getting goodies - rather than as your civic duty - is that distributing goodies is now all the government does.
~ Tom G. Palmer

TIME: 5:30 PM
PLACE: Podunk Illinois

This sign hangs above the main drag in Podunk. I guess they want to make sure we get all of our goodies!

Get your goodies!! You paid for them.

You touch on something that's been bugging me about the whole census PR effort, the notion that you need to complete the census in order to collect what you deserve from the government. There's been a post on the topic brewing in my head, I just haven't been able to find the words to express how that bugs me.

But nice picture! I don't comment much but I do look every day.

I just received a postcard AFTER receiving the census and the letter notifying me that the census will be arriving. I don't believe that the govt thinks much of the intellect of the population as a whole.
