H & R Block is giving away $32,000,000 in one month to lucky folks who file taxes through them. I’ve seen the ads and done the math. I called the local office and asked, “So where does the $32,000,000 come from?” She had no idea. I told her, “From your customers.”

I call it a scam because it is so blatant, in your face and the amount seems over the top. Not unlike Monopoly at Safeway or McDonalds or any other sort of give away contest in principle but I usually decline those games as well. I’ld rather they lower their cost to consumers.

Thank you Liberty for choice.
