    It is no wonder why the US is in the financial difficulties it is in. To say nothing of frivolous stuff put in bills by our Congress here is the latest folly.

    The US is required to conduct a Census every 10 years. This year is it. They are spending, presumably, millions of dollars advertising on TV and Radio and shoving it down our throats. And then there is this.

    Approximately 2 weeks ago, every household in America received a letter from the Census Bureau, announcing, in NO LESS than 6 languages, that we would receive our Census forms shortly. Then, of course the mailing of census forms to every household. Now yesterday we get ANOTHER mailing, reminding us that we should have already received our census forms and to make sure we mail them back.

    Now HOW STUPID is all this? I know we need to know how many people we have in this country and where we are all living, but this is OVERKILL.

    And yes by the way I mailed mine back the day I got it.

    Yeah. Too bad they don't care enough to count everyone by the groups in which they most identify.

    Yep! Couldn't agree with you more!

    The whole government seems to have gone totally bonkers about most everything. From health care to taxes to the census. I'm getting kind of sick of the whole thing. And the useless bickering in Congress. They all sound like a room full of kindergarten kids fighting over their favorite toy.

    Enough already!

    Quit your stupid fighting. Quit wasting OUR money. Quit with the pork barrel spending. Get your heads together and actually SOLVE some problems. Quit creating more.

    I'm sick of the lot of them!

    True. Too true. My DW's kindergarten classes were all much better behaved than Congress.

    Totally agree! We keep getting postcards from the census too! What a waste of money.
