9. It's really hard to tell if the guy is serious or doing some caller hoax.
I agree, literacy is a problem in this country. And way too few people read. It's one of the problems that make the political misconceptions worse in this country. But that's for another rant.

This guy wants police-state compliance. If you didn't turn in your report, you are now arrested and can't leave the house (like to work!) and have to attend some re-education calls (at the Post Office!) on Saturday.

The more I think about it, the more it sounds like a goof...a hoax.
