They Spent $2.5 Million for THIS?

Our government is filled with incompetent people who have no regard for the taxpayer’s money and will waste it on ineffective, inconsequential drivel that accomplishes nothing.  If you don’t believe me, take a look at this ad for the U.S. Census that cost the taxpayers $2.5 million dollars, that aired during last night’s Super Bowl.

If the government absolutely had to spend $2.5 million on an ad for the Census, don’t you think they could have done a better job?  Couldn’t we have had some kind of clever premise, or some humor, or some flashy special effects?  Couldn’t we have had something that actually made sense? It illustrates perfectly why the government is inferior to the private sector in accomplishing almost anything.  I don’t see what this ad accomplished or what the message even was.  It If anyone has any clue, please let me know, because for the life of me, I have no clue.

In an era when we are going deeper and deeper into debt, with no signs of reversing course, why are we spending $2.5 million dollars on this piece of crap?  How much waste and crap is there in the Federal Budget like this that can be trimmed?
