that's a piece of junk mail

All those discount cards, membership cards, club cards, whatever the fuck they call them at the stores where you shop? They don't just use them to target what big savings are available for the stuff you like to buy from them. They have them so they can collect that data on you and sell it on the open market. All those surveys you take? Where, no matter what is covered in the survey, they never fail to ask your age, your education, your income? Even if the survey is from a nonprofit, they are going to sell the information to make money for their nonprofit. It seems this poor man's insurance company is even getting in on the act, the side business of selling demographics data to other businesses.

This is not the country you've been led to believe you were born in.
