THE ABUSE OF TAX DOLLARS IS SYSTEMIC



James O'Keefe is at it again.

He has gone undercover at the Census Bureau training to reveal that you and I are paying census workers for hours not worked.

Interpolate the information garnered here and extrapolate it to the many, many government entities with the same economic attitude.

How many tax dollars are thusly flushed down the bureaucratic toilet?

Does that not make you see red?

(That, my friend, was a double, perhaps even a triple entendre.)

Thanks to Snaggletoothie for putting me on to this.

So if breaking the law is inoffensive, or in fact common place (like the law prohibiting interference in a federal election), is it really breaking the law? I submit to you that from a practical standpoint, there was no offense simply because no one was offended. Well, except for you and me but as your new playmate Shaw will tell you, Conservative points of view simply don’t matter.

Who says kakistocracy doesn't work?

Mustang: She's a trip, isn't she?

Ginsu: We seem to be determined to make it work. For the uninitiated, here's the definition of kakistocracy: Government by the least qualified or most unprincipled citizens.

I have had FIVE visits from the census workers.

GOT THAT?!

FIVE!!!

I wonder how much that cost?

Joe said...

Krystal: How on earth did you get so lucky?

Millions of dollars are being flushed down the proverbial toilet. And there is not a darn thing we can do about it. The balance of power in the senate and congress is completely one-sided and until we vote them out, we have to sit and watch our nation falling deeper and deeper into a bottomless abyss of bankruptcy.

If you have an unlimited quantity of anything, you are probably going to waste it. It's human nature. That's why the income tax should be repealed.

Joe, last year I completed a census they followed me for the whole year with about 3to 4 contacts. this year I got two forms in the mail. I call and advised them I had completed on last year, but they insisted I must complet the one for this year. Then I went to camp and found another form in the door at camp. My daughter completed one and later on she received a call from her landlord asking who lived in her apartment and other personal questions. She asked why they needed the information from her that they already knew. They stated it was for the census worker and they gave them all this information to them on her. There's something amiss about this whole census thing......multiple forms completed on the same individual doesn't add up,,,,,,or should I say does add up????? stay well...

This was never in the mainstream media, that is FOR SURE........unbelievable.
OUR TAX DOLLARS at work.

I've had TWO visits and FIVE phone calls..one, telling me they'd spoken to my husband a few days ago...As know, my husband died in Oct.

I told the man I last spoke with about all these visits and calls (despite my having sent it in on time!) and he said he was sorry but this way of doing things didn't appeal to him, either.."they just pass around names" Who's to say they're not 'exaggerating' certain demographics?

So glad to see this video....it needs to get to the public!

Joe, just lucky I guess. As it turns out, no one in the office has ever HEARD of the man who visited me the first times. We're suspecting he wasn't even a cencus worker to begin with.

tapline, I'd say it's time to call a lawyer.
