Default Tore up my census booklet...

I got my census forms today. They were left on my doorstep in a plastic bag.

I started filling out the booklet until I got to the part where it started asking about what form of latino I was, if I were latino at all.

What the FUCK does this have to do with anything?

So, instead of wasting my time filling it out, I tore it up and threw it away.

Now you've done it! There's somebody in your neighborhood who is NOT going to get health care because you did not fill out your census form! Oh, wait... that doesn't make sense. Obama is saying everyone is going to be covered, but the census commercials make it sound like somebody might not get health care and other services they need if you don't fill out your form.

I do find it funny that census commercials refer to how if "your aunt, cousins, and her cat Fluffy" are staying with you, you need to everyone in your form. I guess "Fluffy the cat" falls under one of the many Latino variants offered, especially if he/she doesn't have their paperwork indicating they're a citizen.

It does seem like the only info the census really cares about is race, since that's about half the form.
But, given the government and it's "Everyone must be counted so we know just how many entitlements to provide", I'm not surprised.

On paper at least, they're supposed to come to your house face-to-face now (if you don't fill out the paper form). Good chance your time will get wasted either way.

I answered the first two questions. Those are Constitutional. The rest? They can knock on my door for days for all I care.

Glad to see you guys advocate wasting taxpayer money.
Don't fill it out. The less of you who do, the more representation us libs will get in the gerrymandering process.

Sorry precious, one of your major demographics has completely underrepresented themselves.

Glad to see bumbles is still sucking up. where would we be without him?

Bumbles. As far as I know there are only 2 questions the government needs. How may people of voting age. and how many dependents. Thats all they need to know. they don't need to know the sex or the sex orientation of the people. who has a job, If its a union job, and what they feel about the healthcare.

I am sure they would LOVE to know. but you are Not required to tell them.
