Bowl

What a fantastic game. And some seriously gutsy calls made by the Saints. The onside kick, going for it on 4th downs. And jumping routes on Peyton freakin Manning!! That is seriously ballsy. Here’s a funny article by Dave Barry.

The only thing I didn’t like. No, not The Who. No, not the Budweiser commercial. It was the couple of million that our freakin government borrowed to put census commercials on during the Super Bowl!!!!!!!! The dumbing down of America are those who don’t see a problem with this.

    I was SHOCKED by the onside kick. Balls, I tell, ya…BALLS! I thought at the end of the first quarter the Saints were gonna lay down as I predicted. But they did it. I’m happy for the city.

    The census. Obviously they have a PR budget and they thought they’d reach the most people via the Superbowl. It did set a record for most viewership. In the words of one paper: Undercounting has cost states millions of dollars in the past, according to a PricewaterhouseCoopers report. Take Georgia, for instance, where miscounts in 2000–the last year a census was conducted — cost the state $478 million, the report says.

    In a rebuttal yesterday, the Census Bureau argues its investments in ads pay off: In addition to ensuring that states such as Georgia get their fair share for health care, social service and employment projects, each 1 percent increase in participation by mail-in surveys save taxpayers $85 million, because higher response rates mean the bureau must field fewer workers to go door-to-door collecting information. In 2000, the first year the bureau used ad campaigns to increase participation, they spent $100 million, but their efforts led to $305 million in savings, according to their defense, posted on the 2010 Census Web site. Seems like a net savings to me, Mr. Fiscal Conservative.

    Please don’t tell me you are afraid of the census now.

    I’m not afraid of the census. I’m afraid of the 11.3 billion dollar price tag for the census which is 5 billion more than the last one. That’s the equivalent of paying 226,000 people $50,000 for a full year. Way to stick up for those pigs though. I’m really confident that this nonsensical disaster will increase their return rate:

    Got any better ideas? How do you argue that increased awareness brings cost down? Isn’t that a good thing? You’re just an old grump who will gripe at any spending by the government. The Census must be taken. It costs money. I actually worked for the 1990 Census in Mira Mesa when I first moved to SD. It’s a massive undertaking. My only gripe is that it should have been ready to do on line. But that would take an initial startup cost as well.

    Check out the link–it looks like the guy running the show is pretty qualified. It’s a shame you continually bash the US government all the time, when it is the backbone that has helped provide such a nice lifestyle for you and your family. You basicallly say that the people who serve your country in higher up positions are a bunch of incompetent idiots. Nice.
