The US Government Pisses $1.5 Billion Down The Drain

It's not enough that we have a major housing crisis, the stock market is as stable as the Spears family, or our congress just passed a $550 billion dollar spending bill that most of them didn't even read full of earmarks but now they are giving away coupons, on an honor system, to people so that they can watch tv.

Millions of $40 TV coupons now available from the government - TV Squad

Re: The US Government Pisses $1.5 Billion Down The Drain

there are 5 directv tivo boxes, an hd directv box, and numerous old dtv boxes around my house, but I think I might need to get a coupon or 2 just in case dtv decides to quit working for some reason. I mean hell, for years I have had to pay for my digital broadcasting, its about time i get a freebie (even if I don't use it)

spending is irrelevant as long as it stays within our own country. investments like this actually has a return investment since it promotes growth. its a spend money directly to make money indirectly in the future. although i would have to admit, it is kinda a stupid cause.

Re: The US Government Pisses $1.5 Billion Down The Drain

Its just one more step to secure our place as the fattest country in the world.

I swear, 20 years from now, after this generation of kids growing up eating mcdonalds sitting on their *** and wasting their life away in front of a tv or pc, America is going to be so fat that if we are invaded, we just won't care.

Fat people are too lazy to defend our freedom.

Spending isn't irrelevant if it stays inside this country. If you spend the money that I pay into for ridiculous stupid **** while our bridges are falling down, our roads are a mess, our Military, police officers and fire fighters are underpaid and people can't afford to buy a new house right now then it is wasteful.

Spending 1.5 Billion dollars so people can watch TV is not an investment of any good kind.

i think it's kinda dumb seeing very few people will actually need these boxes. heck the gov didn't buy people color tvs when stations were switching to from black and white.

The TV stations make money based on advertising. To sell the advertisments, they need to be broadcasting into the maximum number of homes. It is, therefore, important that everybody can get the signal. TV stations give money to political groups, so government helps people pay for converter boxes.
