Gosh Our Government Is So Clever And Funny!

Message to the government: Please stop spending our money telling us how great you are.

If we are as broke as President Obama says we are, why is the government spending so much money producing stupid PSA’s? Anyone who listens to the radio (especially the government raped Sirius/XM) can attest to the ridiculous increase of nanny state PSA’s from the GSE known as the Ad Council.

They’re out of money, but they have enough to throw around on messages telling us how helpful they are, and how we should all behave.

Like this piece of garbage telling you how to be a good father:

Or like this piece of garbage telling you how to talk:

Or this piece of garbage telling you what to eat, or what not to eat as the case may be.

This is what a nanny state looks like!

    Obama is still campaigning…. FB is over run with PSA popups.

    Sorry for being off topic but could you post something about the upcoming Chicago July 4th Tea Party. We’ve attended both and cannot find anything about the upcoming one. There also seems to be “alternative” tea parties springing up and we want to attend the one organized by the same people as the first two. Thanks in advance.

    Enjoyed your reporting from the April 15th one. I’ve become of friend of the Russian guy you interviewed and he has the same frustration about finding information about July 4th.

    i don’t know. i think those who are better & smarter than me (i.e. the government) have a responsibility – nay, a duty – to tell me how to live my life.

    i know this mandate isn’t found anywhere in the constitution (@ least i think so – i’ve never actually read it…), but who cares? they’re better & smarter than all that.
