In the straight out of George Orwell, big brother is watching files, and actual ad from the State of Pennsylvania trying to get delinquent tax filers to pay up:
A little creepy, eh? Real Clear Politics takes a look at the ad and includes a conversation with the people who own the house that was pinpointed:
“I have a problem that we live in a state where the Declaration of Independence was signed and this ad looks to me very KGBish. When you put an ad like that out, it’s almost like they are saying they are stalking you. People don’t appreciate it, especially post-Patriot Act. It feeds people’s paranoia that government is anti-you.”
With North Carolina so hard up for cash, what do you think the chances are they try something like that as well here?
