Get those crappy psa's off the radio waves, please!
Look, Gov... If you really want more participation and cooperation with the census, stop trying to count cars, refrigerators, computers, rooms or any other personal belongings. It's none of your damn business. Stick to what the census is for - counting people and more precisely, counting legitimate citizens.
Listen, if you seriously think that counting cars can help you determine where to put highway funding, you have it all assed backward. That's why half of our most traveled roads are falling apart right now. It doesn't matter whether somebody owns one car or twenty nine cars. That's not going to change the actual road usage. What you need to do is get onto a monitor system and count the number of vehicles that are actively trampling each road, each day, regardless of who owns them or which states they are registered in.
Come on, Gov... If I can figure that out, what's taking you so long to catch up?
