They came to my house every week all summer demanding I participate in a census that focused on homes built before 1900. Guy BEATING my door at 8am Sunday morning. Oh boy, not smart. He was fast though, dog didn't get him.

The following Sunday bang bang bang again. Really? Ok see how this fucker likes a 12 gauge. Despite the posted, no trespassing signs, beware of dog, etc this guy starts showing me his laptop. Didn't even glance at the shotgun. I explained I work nights please leave. This will take only 45 min he says. Fuck off!!!!

Next Sunday same damn thing. Can't believe the balls on these people.

Long story short I quit answer the door, keep the dog out which backfired. Guy petting dog banging on door. Dog hates everyone. Suddenly this clown is his best friend. Fuck me running.

So I go out there and say what can I do to get you to go away. I filled out the survey, all bs, and the guy happily went on his merry way.

Should have done that first time. Joke was on me. I figure they get paid by everyone they get filled out. Tenacious little bastard. Balls that drag and make Sparks for a small asian man. Lol

Fill in form correctly and accurately >

> Run form through cross cut shredder >

> Soak shreds in water then blend to a pulp with cake mixer >

> Squeeze excess water out of pulp with cheesecloth >

> Roll out to size and shape of original form with image of front of original form pasted to it (Or make crafty paper mache items such as snazzy "don't tread on me" and census form earrings) >

Bask in the knowledge that you are a good citizen complying with the letter of the law.

Its the Deep State trying to get you to voluntarily give them data on your life.

It smacks or Orwellian (1984) intrusion into your privacy, trying to gather data that may well be used against you and the family in the future.....BIN and BURN it!

What is so disturbing about your attitudes is the lack of understanding of how funding is allocated & how states & counties get their money-Do you like the roads being paved? Have you ever had to call the police, fire dept. or an ambulance? Do you have children in public schools? Do you have a lighted streets, public libraries & public transportation? Is your rent or mortgage to high, do you have a slum lord in your area? These are issues that are important to most people & how do you think they find out if a community needs more schools, hospitals, fire depts? How does $$ get to those places that need new roads, libraries, police stations or retirement facilities? By data-who collects the most data in the country? The Census Bureau. They are where you go to for statistics about everything! Prison populations,poverty level, job growth, income, mental health,rent control,immigrants etc. Do you think any successful "business" can succeed without doing an inventory? Dont you need to know how many employees you have, how much they are paid, how many hours they work, if they are healthy or sick , days missed, job performance, profit margin, moral, supplies, overhead, compliance w/ OSHA,etc. You people are idiots to think the Govt gives 2 S*!$ about YOU-its just numbers & you people are so self absorbed-Ed Snowden told everyone already that we are screwed-At least with accurate data we know how badly screwed we are!

they added a question to the form, late last night. now, the very last question asks "are you a legal citizen?" it is a back door attempt to frighten folks in urban areas into not answering, hoping to lower big cities representation in Congress. the constitution calls for "enumeration" IE- "how many people live there?" not "how many people are registered to vote for us". California (among others) announced IMMEDIATELY that they would sue to stop it. even experienced Census employees say it is not permissible to ask this. the GOP only wants registered Republicans to be able to vote. you are either with them, or you are an enemy of the "state" in their minds...

I only want LEGAL US CITIZENS, that are alive, to vote. Is that so wrong?
