(as they say in the FLDS)
I got this in the mail. I don't remember applying for it, although it says I did.
That's right, folks, watching TV is such a basic human right that the government is footing the bill for it. The letter also tells me where I can buy these newfangled converter boxes (assured to cost no less than $40 thanks to this ingenious plan), and four of the six places listed are Walmart. I guess that's to appease the evil conservatives. Please note, the average American household has at least two TVs.
While I personally disagree that huge government programs like universal health care benefit society, I can at least understand the reasons that make other people want them. But TV upgrades? For real?
If I Ebay these things, I bet I'll actually come out ahead. Maybe I shouldn't complain.
Update: That's illegal! Back to complaining!
