Another Example of Why the Federal Deficit is so Bloated

In yesterdays mail I received a letter from the Department of the Commerce advising me that "About one week from now, you will receive a 2010 Census form in the mail." It went on to ask that I please fill out and return the form.

In a nutshell that sums up the reason we have a federal deficit. The clowns in government do not respect the money they spend as they would their personal money. Would any of them spend 44 cents of their own money to tell everyone they know that they will be spending more money in a week to mail them something else?

I acknowledge that my complaint can be dismissed by saying it is chump change and a tiny sliver of the federal budget. That would be wrong. Take care of your pennies and the dollars will take care of themselves.

Senate confirmation hearings for cabinet posts should focus more on fiscal sanity than on the nominees ideological leanings.

It probably works out to about 125 million spent for this extra letter.

I got the same letter. I was surprised at first. Then I remembered that the federal government are a bunch of morons.
