They've been harassing me to complete the American Community Survey. Even had a guy show up at my door. I went online to get it done and the questions they ask ARE NONE OF THEIR FUCKING BUSINESS.
How many faucets are in my house? What's my income? How many hours do I work? How much do I pay for _______?
I went back and deleted all my answers. Fuck them and their bullshit survey.
Shoulda ate him.

"The Nazis entered this war under the rather childish delusion that they were going to bomb everyone else, and nobody was going to bomb them. At Rotterdam, London, Warsaw and half a hundred other places, they put their rather naive theory into operation. They sowed the wind, and now they are going to reap the whirlwind."

I fill out the number of people living here and their race and nothing more.
I don't answer the phone if caller ID isn't someone I know and I don't answer the door if it isn't someone I know or one of the delivery services.
They eventually get tired of it all and go away.

I've never answered. I don't want to give California a bigger voice than it already has at least as far as I'm concerned.
"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.

Answer a few questions and turn it in. Problem solved.

I keep hearing about this, but I can't recall ever receiving one. Is it actually from the Census Bureau?
I filled out the legitimate 2020 Census online. A census taker did come to my door, but only to ask if the apartment adjacent to mine was occupied or not. (I didn't know.)

I have better things to do, but I'm not doing them right now, so I looked this up on the Census Bureau website, and it really is a "thing." https://www.census.gov/programs-surveys/acs I still don't recall getting one. It's possible that I did and thought it was the "regular" census. It was definitely not this one.
I will never answer any question on race on a gov't. form other than a 4473.
FWIW, I used to work for a place the US Census Bureau used to get their news releases out. Talk about an agency looking to justify and increase their budget every day of the offseason. They put out news releases about favorite ice cream flavors on Indian reservations. Not joking. Your tax dollars at work. Eff those idiots.
I've recently gotten into family research and my grandaughter has gotten really hooked.
We both find the old census stuff very interesting. Census data is sealed for like 70 years... 70 years from now your great grand child will be trying to do a report for history class. I'm sure your great grand child will interested in how many faucets you have and will be disappointed if they can't find you listed. LOL
Don't let their classmates make fun of your great grand child because you dropped out of sight. Answer the dumb questions. LOL
Joking aside, while I hate giving data to the government, I think the census drives the number of congressional districts (so if you're in a liberal state don't respond) and the American Community Survey drives where funds will be allocated. I'd rather funds come to my community than be shipped off to a liberal state.

I don't think anyone has a problem with the US Census Bureau fulfilling their Constitutional mandate. Asking race, national origin, indoor plumbing and all kinds of other BS just makes it easier for the gov't. to discriminate on those bases. You've heard all about banks discriminating on mortgage lending based on race. Well, if the HUD 1003 form didn't ask an applicant's race AND require the loan officer to guess if it's left blank, then banks wouldn't be able to discriminate, even if they wanted to. These BS questions just help the state classify people into groups, so it's easier help one and hurt the other.
I have decided to hence forth self-identify as a Black teen.
However, in light of new laws in California, I've decided to go to their casinos and self-identify as a winner and demand they direct deposit my winnings.
I was employed with the US Census Bureau for a year as a recruiting assistant.
I had fun and I met a lot of great people both employees and applicants.
With that being said, besides this job I just took here at Camp Atterbury IN, I have never seen an agency waste so much money.
The problem is that it is not the US Census Bureau, it is another chain above them that is directing them to get the information.
If I am not mistaken the US Census Bureau falls under the Dept of Commerce and they are the ones pulling all the strings.
Probably the same place that every other bloated, mismanaged, money wasting, government entity gets theirs.
