I take offense to junk mail period. But the mailing I got today takes the cake by a long shot:
Wrapped in what doesn't look like a recyclable plastic envelope (but at least it is resealable so perhaps it is reuseable because they didn't affix the mailing label to the outside of it) came a multi-page advertisement for LAND ROVER with a very thick cardstock cover. The inital page, in what can only be described as irony, depicts the Boston Tea Party. LAND ROVER. Sending me a mailer with the Boston Tea Party on it?
I digress. It says, "For more than two centuries, Americans have been looking for ways to lower their taxes." On the inside it says, "This time you don't have to start a revolution." The mailer then depicts how my buying a 6,000 pound LAND ROVER will help me recoup taxes for a small business LAND ROVER purchase vs. other luxury cars. On a Range Rover, I can write off $68,842 compared to $20,385 on a $78,000 luxury car w/50% bonus depreciation. On a Range Rover Sport, I can write off $53,952 compared to $20,385 on a $60,000 luxury car w/50% bonus depreciation. On an LR3 I can write off $45,680 compared to $20,385 on a luxury car w/50% bonus depreciation.
Well sign me up! With the tax benefit, they're practically giving these things away! [/sarcasm]
And this is got to be endemic of what's wrong with America for so many reasons....
