2010 Census Under Fire From Cities, Elected Officials

July 6, 2011 by  

The census is being contested by a number of cities.After the 2000 census, 1,200 challenges were filed by cities, towns and counties. This time around, the United States Conference of Mayors is expecting an even larger number, The Washington Times reports.

According to the news source, almost $450 billion in Federal aid is distributed to the States, based on population, for Medicaid and other programs each year. A drop in population could mean major drops in Federal handouts.

“Along with Federal funds, there’s a psychological impact when a city loses population, because people and businesses want to be in a vibrant region where things are growing and happening,” Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory told The Washington Times.

Under the Census Bureau’s appeals process, cities have two years to contest their reported counts, the media outlet stated.

In 2009, according to CBS News, GOP Presidential candidate Representative Michelle Bachmann (R-Minn.) was openly critical of the census, stating that her family would indicate only the number of people in the household, because that is all that is required by the Constitution.

Bachmann was also concerned with the Census Bureau’s involvement with the organization ACORN, which has been repeatedly indicted for voter fraud, stating that its role in the process is “very concerning,” CBS News reported.

    So, ACORN didn’t disappear. That fits, since we still have a thug administration in Washington that says this, does that and expects America to bend over and smile. It’s worth noting that the Constitution requires simplicity, while the criminals in Washington want too much info (and for the wrong reasons).
    But, not to worry. The current political ‘savior’ will save all of us because he loves us – as long as we do what he wants. Sounds familiar, and is straight out of the history books, too.
    More and more, this bunch in Washington came to power and exercises power the same way a certain German wiener did it. He was in love with himself, he couldn’t stand criticism, he could hypnotize a dumbed-down crowd (but without a teleprompter) and his ‘party’ was known as National Socialists. Yep, history does repeat itself. Only this time around, way too many people are too damned dumb to see the parallels.
    The spirit of sig heil didn’t die in 1945. It went underground – just like ACORN. Lightning never strikes twice, eh?

    • Mermaidiva

      to SC – A very astute post. Extremely valid point about the dumbed down crowd (many folks in the USA are walking around with eyes wide shut when it comes to what Obama and his henchmen are doing to the country – every day there is a new executive order and nobody knows about it because he either picks a busy time (watch out because the Anthony trial is taking up the news space) or weiner’s disgraceful lies and subterfuges all the while pushing his agenda through, on holidays, never letting some kind of crisis go to waste, and on fridays when folks are gearing up for the weekend. We have to vote to get this liar our of office! At this point in time, it is imperative that we vote for anybody conservative because nobody could be worse. it might be a case of voting and holding your nose, but its vital that we get rid of this fabian socialist, keynesian economist, anti colonial, Marxist/Communist, Muslim advocate, Anti American, cloward and Piven follower, Saul Alinsky follwer OUT OF OFFICE. This is a critical time in history and we have to stand up to be counted or lose the America and its freedoms that we so cherish. ANY CONSERVATIVE WHO VALUES THE CONSTITUTION WOULD BE BETTER THAN WHAT WE HAVE NOW………SC – I agree with everything you wrote in your post. Thanks for sharing because we have to wake up the dumbed down crowd who is falling for untruthful rheutoric and a large smile…….

      • Helen Jenkins

        I agree with you as you agree with SC. That is why the conversation must be kept going. There are things that must be said, again and again, only louder each time. Over a long period of time too many Americans – victims of dumbed down school system- have been conditioned to feel defeated, almost helpless. Nothing was further from the truth. It only takes one (leader) to stand up in dissent, others will follow. Every community in America needs a TEA PARTY functioning as a TRUTH SQUAD. America has to lose its ‘CELEBRITY AWE’ – just because they are rich or you are seeing them -constantly- on TV does not mean that they are really smart. Without common sense an individual is little more than an educated FOOL. Trust that small voice – instinct, premonition, God or sixth sense – that whispers,”This does not sound right, there’s something wrong here. That voice is a warning, LISTEN!!! In every community, parents need to form a group of ‘watchers’ who examine the textbooks, curriculum and what the focus of the school is. Do more than complain. Write letters to newspapers, contact media – especially Talk Radio and Cable News. They will verify, then publish – you will find out YOU are not alone! Take Back America must begin on the local level, moving up to Federal. American voters must be willing to ‘throw the BUMS out.’ Remember, there’s no reason to love a politician unless you are related by blood, or married to one. Corruption in so deeply embedded within American Government – Democrats/R.I.N.O.- that the only remedy is to get out of office 99% of incumbants. It is never too late to learn: Constitution, American History and basic Economics. Holding one’s nose and voting is one of the methods power addicted politicians count on. Better to take a chance on an unknown – to prove to newcomer as well as incumbent, their buttes will be kicked to the curb in a heartbeat at the first misstep. WE THE PEOPLE have the POWER. Incumbants don’t want voters to know this, but you buy (vote) their skill and labor and pay (taxation)their salary, they serve at your pleasure. You fire for CAUSE, whenever they become derelict in their job performance. Keep the FAITH and the CONVERSATION going!!!

      • gypsy

        I hope and pray when Congress and senate goes after Obama they can peel back all the fall guys ZARS he has in place to take blame for the crimes he has done to our country. I would think when a President choose what laws he supports when he wants and chooses to enforce on Americans and does not enforce on illegals aliens you would think that is enough to impeach him and his crew. I guess there must not be much back bone for the folks we have hired to do peoples business. Looks like we need another house cleaning before the big battle comes.

      • DENNIS

        Almost makes you wonder if we would have been better off if Hitler had won…. He did like the English speaking Christian countries more than the rest,, He really did not enjoy attacking England, but had to in order to try to win the war. But, too much hate from the Nazi party would not have worked,, At least we would not have Adolfbama now,,

  • Matt M.

    SC ya made many valid point especially about the “dumb-down crowd”.
    The sad part about it is that both parties(republicans & democrats are so entrenched in our political system(like a non operative cancer)that there is little to no recourse. That is unless you have the means to move to your own island.

    • C130 Gunship

      Matt M—Agreed. Washington, DC, 64.1 miles surrounded by reality.

  • Cawmun Cents

    Name rank and serial number is all I would offer them…..haw!-CC.

  • Jonathan

    I never even got a census form. Kept waiting, and waiting. Finally said the heck with it and forgot about it until now.

    • http://google scotty

      Ditto with me I waited and waited for a census form and after a long time decided they did not want to count me as I am a Conservative with Protection. I have to figuire the morons they got to take the census could not count over ten if they had all their fingers!

      • Dons621

        Oh they can count to ten, every time they make a score of their Happy Weed and get paid for Demonstrations. Or charge a “John” for sex in one of their Whore House,s funded with taxpayer money, and promoted by the Progressive Movement.

      • Kate8

        I wish they would have ignored me.

        I tried to ignore them, as I have in the past, but they kept coming to my door, demanding that I answer ALL of the questions. I told them the number of people living here and that I would answer nothing else, per the Law. They told me that was not an option.

        Finally some supervisor came out and physically observed who was here. He tried to use casual conversation to get more info, but I told him to find out on his own, because I wasn’t going to answer any questions.

        I also wouldn’t let the GPSers inside my gate.

        • TexasPatriot

          Kate8, my story is very much like yours. When the supervisor knocked, I told him I had repeatedly answered the Constitutional question (number of persons living in the residence) and had no intention of providing any other information. I closed the door in his face. He knocked again, and I told him he was now trespsssing and threatening my family. I closed the door again and never heard another word from them.

      • http://personallibertywebsite Pasqualy

        Well…looks like a lot of folks wasn’t counted! This is the first time they missed me. WV lost a soul in this count.

    • Don

      Jonathan, don’t feel bad, we got two, o wait, it was three, but only submitted one, finally had to tell the person with the census to get off my property !

  • Lueder

    As a genealogist, I for one appreciate the treasure trove of information that can be gleaned from census records. In the 1880 Census, they started asking where your parents were born. This provides such an important clue as you try to go back “just one more generation”. I curse that the 1890 census was destroyed, but the 1900 census asked how many children were born to a woman and how many were still living. HUGE clues into that you may have missed a child that died in infancy or childhood, or that a child (now adult) had also passed before the parents.

    Prior to 1850, only the head of household was listed and all other members of the household (including slaves) were listed as a tick mark. Not much information can be gleaned from a tick mark. I am white but I feel for anyone that is black in doing their genealogy because there are hardly any church records available since they weren’t considered a “full person” at the time and until the 1860 census, a black was a tick mark.

    Many times there are no church records and the census is all the documentation you have available that the family even existed. I am not for the census getting too intrusive but I would like a little more information than “name, rank, and serial number.”

    • TexasPatriot

      Would you ‘like a little more information’ at the expense of individuals being threatened with unconstitutional practices to provide it against their own free will?

  • Bob

    If the census counts illegals instead of just legal Americans, then some states with high numbers of illegals will get more representation in the House, and at election time to the detriment of states which don’t have many illegals. We shouldn’t count illegals.

    • http://FarTooMuch.Info Russ Lemon

      Not only that, but illegals with 17 drivers licenses, each with a different name and in a different precinct may be counted 17 times. I suspect that he may even vote 17 times. Here in Southern California, it has become a game of the undocumented to obtain many driver’s licenses. Each time they are stopped, the use a different one. The different addresses come from houses bought with federal assistance and may show as many as two dozen adults living there, even though only one family actually livers there. This was told to me by a Hispanic student who introduced me to La Raza’s plan to ‘reclaim their country’. He said that since they couldn’t use bullets, they would use the ballot box to gain control.

    • TexasPatriot

      Keep it simple. We shouldn’t HAVE illegals.

  • eddie47d

    Too much madcap comedy for me to ingest! If only Acorn was as evil as you all have been spoon fed like infants in a high chair. I see much dumbing down right here where malicious propaganda always gets in the way of an honest conversation. Oh,That evil Census. ..NOT! So what if a city looses population and another one gains. It’s been happening since the beginning of time. That’s life so these cities need to get over it and accept their fate. The Mayors should have done a better job of retaining those workforces. Now someone else will benefit from those Federal dollars.If you have fewer people to serve on Medicaid you receive less revenue for that loss.

    • Earl Z.

      You crack me up eddie… can’t make up your mind on which side of the fence to sit on? The original purpose of the census was to count citizens for allocating representatives in DC. Now, the Federal $ is an incentive to complete the census. Did you complete the invasive census that asked if you owned your house and give your income? I found it evil… and please refresh my memory of all the good that Acorn has accomplished. With the dire straits of the economy, I need more laughs.

    • Kate8

      eddie – That’s exactly what the people of Germany said.

      Hitler used the census to garner information the same way: race, religion, occupation, etc. In fact, he employed IBM to devise the system to compile the data, just as O did. This information was used to put everyone in categories to determine their fate. That means whether they were to be hauled off to camps, who would be exterminated, who would be left alone.

      This is precisely why the census was made to count numbers only. Anything else makes it too easy for the government to misuse.

      Of course, in today’s world, everything about us all is available at the click of a key, or a swipe of a driver’s license (soon to be a chip). As information has become so easily obtainable, privacy laws have vanished.

      • Eddie47d

        Any information can be used for good or for evil purposes. Like Leuder said it can be a treasure trove of positive information. We have had the Census for many generations and the nation has benefited from it. Hitler used it for a short time and misused the information. Will a bank misuse your money or will it put it to good use? It’s called having trust or faith in an institution to do the right thing. Either you have it or you don’t. You can also lock yourself up in a cave and pretend no one else exists.

        • Kate8

          eddie – You know as well as I do that if something CAN be used wrongly, it will be.

          That’s why it’s better to limit access in the first place.

  • mickey

    Eddie, ACORN is evil or my state would not be counted for obama. We had more votes than voters.

    We need add only one thing to the census and that is US citizen or not.

    The only thing this census did was count illegals, who to the best of my knowledge should not be “entitled” to anything other than deportation.

    I answered the number in the household, sent the required (printout) with it. They sent a person out anyway. I reinstated the requirement and was told he would just do a reverse lookup, compliments of Google. How’s that compromise of privacy thingy doin for ya? Collusion of private and state, anyone?

  • Elevenarrows

    I refused to give any information other than how many were in my household. As a result, I was harassed for weeks after the 2000 census. I must have been labeled “difficult” because they sent an increasingly offensive group of people to squeeze the information out of me. One man turned bright red and literally screamed that I was preventing my local schools from receiving more money and didn’t I want them to succeed?! I calmly explained that I did not think the census was originally designed to aid in the redistribiting of my wealth. I also informed him that I taught my children at home and was firmly convinced government schools were “a ship going down that no amount of money could save.” The man actually stamped his foot and screamed that he worked in those schools. I told him he had my sympathy, but not my information. Thankfully, he was the last visitor I had for the 2000 census. The 2010 census was mailed to me. I filled in the information about how many were living in my household and mailed it in. I received a phone call telling me I had not completed my census and I assured them I had. Then I received a visit from a nice lady who insisted she agreed with my objections and that they had experienced much fraud this time around. She said she was “re-taking” the census because they had discovered some of the workers had sat at home in air conditioning and filled out the forms for everybody on their route. I again gave her only the number of people in the household and she left. From my experience, I envy those of you who never even received the form and I resent the wasted funds spent on such an inaccurate counting of the people.

    • American Citizen

      We, Too, only received the form. I don’t remember how I filled it in, but I know I left some information out.

      • ValDM

        I got the mailed form………and I told the complete truth about EVERYTHING. The thing is, that we had recently allowed one of our adult children to stay with us for a while, and my husband had recently experienced a layoff w/unemployment benefits making our income look more than paltry for a family of 3. I laughed the whole time I was filling out the form, as it was not representative of our household AT ALL.

  • American Citizen

    The Republicans running for office have got to state their case and not be afraid to criticize the present administration. That’s why McCain lost, he tried to be too nice. If Sarah had been allowed to tell the truth about Obama, there may have been a different outcome to that election.

    • Eddie47d

      I doubt that, for McCain’s deceitful ads guaranteed his loss.

  • Eddie

    ACORN is still alive and well working out of the same offices with the same people with a slightly different name on the door like Chicago Community Organizers for Reform Now which really stands for Communist Organizers for Revolution Now. Just like “progressive” is an acceptible name for “Communist”. Just like “Gay” is used instead of Queer or homo.
    ACORN, Association of Communist Organizers for Revolution Now, was just funded again by OBAMA last week.
    TAX PAYERS’ Money used to destroy the American Tax Payer. Ironic.
    Cut off the $450 Billion plus a year that flows from our Treasury to Left Wing Anti American Communist Organizations, close the Borders, refuse to pay $30 Billion a month for illegal aliens plus seek retribution from Mexico for the $500 Billion in costs to America for illegal Drug Gangs, Illegal Alien Criminals, and more American Citizen Deaths each year than in Iraq and Afghanistan combined. Then we could balance our Budget and give more services to the Hard Working American Citizens who earned it.

  • gypsy

    The truth will hold with the people. Stop sugar coating it. And enough about DREAM ACT crap they need to go back were every they came from and do not leave there kids here for us to support. We should never separate family’s that is why the kids should go with there parents. Stop the drain on our kids think about it our poor and our children suffer when we give funds from our system to support the illegal aliens and we need to send Dick Durban and all others with the illegal aliens to there country. The President and others are for the illegal aliens and not for Americans simple enough to see so lets impeach Obama and tar and feather the rest and send them to Europe or Mexico or any were but here. Also Send the Gays with them.

    • Phyllis Murphy

      When have you ever witnessed such a disgraceful exhibition of distaste for the American people as we now are allowing to take place in the present administration. Is it because he is half black? Is it because his party hands out food stanps, along with hundreds of other benefits to the greedy, and lazy. Notice I did not say needy. There is a difference between needy and greedy. We have on our hands a third generation of greedy, lazy welfare fraud. Besides the illegals and welfare frauds, OBOMBO has all the votes he needs.I am sick of this group of ignorant modern day robin hoods. Tax the rich. Many of those rich men worked, and sacrificed to get where they are today.Tell that lazy pack of welfare frauds to get off their behinds and try working, I am sure they all have a good excuse for stealing from the rich man, so they can buy their drugs, and beer.Democrats are a pack of liars. Keep the poor, and continue to allow them to beg for a hand out then you can control them. Tax the Corp. The damn Democrats have driven them out of this country by taxing them to death. Now we have snakes like Soros with his wicked mind paying for Obombos effort to destroy America, and replace all the flags in the White House with more gold muslim curtains. Time to take back this country, so the next generation will not have to goosestep.

      • Kate8

        Phyllis – What is really pathetic is that all of those folks cheering Obama for their increase in entitlements can’t understand that it has nothing to do with his love for them.

        It is about the same thing it has been about since its inception: bankrupting and collapsing the United States. But what do they care. As long as the money comes, let the devil take tomorrow…

      • Eddie47d

        Phyllis; I bet there are quit a few people who wishes there were more Robin Hoods in today’s world. Few wealthy have really earned their riches and it has become more like reverse piracy in taking from the middle class and ignoring the poor.

      • Eddie47d

        The wealthy are stealing from Kate also but she hasn’t figured it out yet.

        • Kate8

          eddie – You never cease to be exasperating.

          You haven’t comprehended a thing I’ve said. Or else you haven’t actually bothered to read anything I’ve said.

          • Eddie47d

            You’re too much conspiracy for my blood Kate. Now do you live in a cave or a bunker?

          • Kate8

            eddie – I don’t care whether you read my posts. In fact, I’d rather you didn’t, because it’s too far over your head.

            But then, why comment on something you haven’t even read? Isn’t that a bit presumptuous?

            BTW, those things you call “conspiracy” have already come out in the open. But then, if your eyes and mind are closed, you won’t see them, now will you?

            While I find your little digs and putdowns rather amusing, I can’t help but wonder why you even bother responding to posts you find to be so baseless.

          • Drawer22

            @ Kate8: Thank you for your integrity. As for the Constitution of the United States of America and the manner in which the census info asked might be misused, “Cogito, ergo armatus sum.” Let those who would attempt enforcement of the unConstitutional upon me beware, for where they are is considered to be downrange.

    • Eddie47d

      gypsy is too bigoted to even comment on.

  • BOOHOO

    I got my census and under race I wrote “HUMAN” they didn’t like that. They called and asked me to explain. I told them it was clear. I am part of the human race

  • Elevenarrows

    My kids have developed a great idea for a new reality series: let’s put all the green-agenda, vegetarian, tree-loving, homosexual people on a deserted island with…nothing, but each other. Then we can see how long it takes them to chop down a tree to stay warm and cook their food…probably little rodents found on the island…and let’s see how long it takes for them to all die out because…they wouldn’t dream of actually reproducing!

    I often wonder how the gay community thinks society would continue if everyone gave them what they really want? Oh, that’s right! They would let a few heterosexuals stick around to provide kids for them to adopt….right. Kinda a short-sighted thing, isn’t it?

    • Kate8

      Elevenarrows – Hey! I take exception with the vegetarians.

      I am as conservative as they come, but you can’t eat the meat these days. It’s not safe.

      Besides, I do object to the way animals are raised by today’s cramped, disease ridden, inhumane treatment. It’s easy to turn a blind eye to things that are not in our line of vision, but that is why we are in the mess we are in.

      Instead of shipping out all of the folks we disagree with, why not just stop giving them preferencial treatment and extra rights, and relegate them back to just having the same rights as everyone else.

      If someone wants to be deviant and stand out in a crowd, fine. But don’t expect the rest of us to embrace, celebrate or elevate their deviance.

      I knew a guy who liked to wear women’s clothes, partly for the shock value. But then he got mad when people noticed. The problem is that deviants like to use their quirks to identify themselves and to get noticed. It’s the focal point of their entire lives, and they choose to stand out and be in our faces.

      The rest of us simply carry on with the business of life.

      • Elevenarrows

        Consider doing what we did about 20 years ago when we decided it was too risky to trust the meat supply…now I don’t trust the GMOs, excitoxins, etc. grow your own meat! I agree with you about the nasty public meat, but there is absolutely nothing wrong and quite a bit right about natural, grass-fed beef, etc. You can go to http://www.mercola.com to read about the benefits of it.

        • Kate8

          Eleven…- Great idea, but not all of us have the ability nor the zoning to grow our own meat.

          But, good for you for doing it!

          • Elevenarrows

            Then partner with and support those who do. It shouldn’t just be farmers fighting to prevent the NAIS. It should be all Americans who…eat! Everybody better take an interest in protecting the food supply from Big Brother because I hate to tell you…Big Brother is a cannibal.

          • Kate8

            Eleven… – What do you suggest? I already buy what veggies, eggs and such that I can from local growers.

            I belong to organizations who are fighting government takeover of our small organic farms and natural healthcare industry.

            I have written letters and made phone calls to my congresspeople, who don’t listen. My Senators are Diane Feinstein and Barbara Boxer. They are firmly big government NWO.

    • Eddie47d

      I never imagined Elevenarrows to be a closet bigot and Kate falls in line too. Are gays more flamboyant? Probably so but wanting equal rights has nothing to do with special rights. When they get those equal rights and demand more then you will have a legitimate complaint.

      • Elevenarrows

        Eddie, I am no CLOSET bigot. Since a bigot is “a person who holds blindly and intolerantly to a particular creed…” I most definitely am one. I am extremely prejudiced against anything God calls sin….no hiding in the closet for me.

    At least in our local area, anything that looked like it had been or someday might be an address, was visited not once but several times by several different workers to verify it was vacant, even collapsed buildings or utility structures, because the effort was to boost numbers. Politicians can’t admit their taxes and regulations have driven so many out of their city, town, county or state, that is the real problem. In rural areas like mine, the big shift has been that as farmers switch from dairying to raising crops like hay, corn, etc. they no longer need fulltime farmhands living on the farm so many mobile/tenant homes are vacant or been demolished, that means no farmworker’s kids in school either. Gas fracking might bring in families, jobs, and lease incomes, but everything possible to stop that will be done, so less and less people will pay more and more taxes and get less services and more regulation in return, forcing poorer families to sell out and move out, and the population keeps dwindling and politicians think screaming at census results is the solution. Not admitting their failure as leaders. Of course they may bring in low income housing projects to boost numbers, but without jobs, that just increases demand for services, crime rates and raises taxes even more.

    Does ANYBODY know what is “REQUIRED” IN OR ON “THE CENSUS FORM”?

    ALL THAT IS NEEDED IS THIS….NUMBER OF PEOPLE OR SOULS THAT LIVE IN A PARTICULAR RESIDENCE…..ACCORDING TO THE CENSUS LAW THERE ARE NO “LONG FORMS”…… OR THE OLD BULL$HIT LINE MR. AND MRS JONES “YOU ARE “LUCKY” IN THAT, YOU HAVE BEEN SELECTED TO FILL OUT THE “LONG FORM.” YOUR VERY NAME IS NOT A REQUIREMENT. THE CENSUS IS A HEAD COUNT NOT AN INFORMATION GATHERING GUBBAMENT ENTITY. THERE ARE NO REQUIREMENTS TO DESIGNATE MALE / FEMALE. ETC. UNLESS THEY CHANGE THE LAW. I HAVE FOUGHT WITH THESE MORONS OVER THIS ISSUE AND WON. THERE ARE NO “CENSUS POLICE” TO COME AND ARREST YOU, AT THE TIME OF THIS POSTING.

    THE PROBLEM IS THAT AMERICANS ARE “STUPID” BECAUSE THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT THE CENSUS IS NOR HAVE THEY EVER INVESTIGATED WHAT THE REQUIREMENTS ARE FOR THE CENSUS. STICK WITH THE BASICS “DO NOT GIVE THE GUBBAMANT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION.” LIKE EVERYTHING ELSE THE GUBBAMENT ABUSES AND MISS-USES EVERYTHING THEY GET THEIR HANDS ON.

    CASE IN POINT YOUR “ELECTRONIC TAX RETURNS” ARE SOURCES FOR IDENTITY THIEVES TO STEAL ENOUGH INFORMATION SO THEY CAN GET LOANS AND OTHER THINGS PURCHASED AT YOUR EXPENSE. “NEVER FILE ELECTRONICALLY.” ALWAYS SEND TAX FORMS THROUGH THE MAIL “CERTIFIED,” EVEN THEN THEY WILL LOOSE THE RETURNS.

    WISE UP AMERICA…..IF IT COMES FROM THE GUBBAMENT…YOUR FIRST REACTION IS OR SHOULD BE SUSPICION. IF WE WENT BACK ABOUT A HUNDRED YEARS AGO, I “MIGHT BE” LESS CONCERNED. BUT IN TODAY’S WORLD I HAVE NO FAITH NOR DO I TRUST GOVERNMENT IN “ANY CAPACITY.” ESPECIALLY “THE UNCLE TOM” WE HAVE IN THE WHITE HOUSE.

    THEY HAVE SPENT MILLIONS TO ADVERTISE THE IMPORTANCE OF RETURNING THE CENSUS FORMS ARE, SO HERE IS ANOTHER LITTLE TIP, THEY HIRE ANYBODY, AND I MEAN ANYBODY THERE ARE NO BACKGROUND CHECKS, THEY HIRE EX-FELONS, ANYBODY WHICH THEY DON’T CARE BECAUSE IT IS ALL ABOUT GETTING THE JOB DONE….THE PAY IS BASICALLY MINIMUM WAGE SO ANYBODY QUALIFIES. YOU WILL NOT GET THE NASTY SOB’S IN THE GUBBAMENT TO ADMIT THIS BECAUSE THEY WANT THE PEOPLE / SHEEPLE TO “FEEL SAFE.”

    eddee, is just a typical generational ward of the goverenment. Too f–king lazy going native to do anything for themselves, government ships truck loads of money and food to them, and they still starve and throw the food and clothes in the dumps.. No group except blacks and indians will vote for democrats every election like the clowns do, because of the handouts and the ability to be worthless idiots talking their heritage. They all are steeped in socialism styled government, too damn stupid and lazy but destroy what they are given, and they depend on everyone else to tail them up out of the bunk of life. Reservations had thousands of ACORN criminals promoting the niggardly marxist as a average crossbred puke, of course the marxist/communists democrats were covering and sheltering the thugs.

      Are you sure i41 that you didn’t leave anyone out in your colorful cowardly diatribe? As always I’m sure you’ll give it your best shot next time. Even a hillbilly has a better upbringing than your imaginative puke.

        Eddie why do you and your kind feel the need to display your racist tendencies toward “hillbillies” – why do you feel you are better or brighter?

        • Eddie47d

          liberytrain; I didn’t knock hillbillies only i41 who is about to get censored for His racist rants. He has two strikes against him and the author has vowed to can him from the site if he continues his behavior. (strike 3). Go to Branson or Dollywood and they (hillbillies) make fun of themselves all the time. i41 has made hundreds of inappropriate comments and you have never said boo. You are showing your bias in spades.

          • libertytrain

            I don’t agree with you. I wasn’t discussing I41 – it was your choice of hillbilly. If I were black, I could amongst my friends call myself the n word…I’m not so I can’t. If I were a hillbilly I could make jokes about myself. If you are not, you have no more right to do that then call someone the n word. If you don’t see that – it’s because you pick and choose what is ok to do and whom to insult.

    These are statements from two of Obamas’ books. The title of the first book is from Dreams from My father: I found a solace in nursing a pervasive sense of grievance and animosity against my mothers’ race. These are his own words. Another statement from the same book. I never emulate white men and brown men who fates didn’t speak to my own. It was into my fathers image, the black man, the son of Africa,that i packed all the Attributes i sought in myself: The attributes of Martin and Malcom,DuBois and Mandela. The second book is Audacity of Hope: This statement came from that book. “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction. I am not trying to stir up trouble. I just want everyone to know some of his beliefs in his own words.

    The truth about B.0. and his lies, both paint an ugly picture.

    The problem with the Census is that it gives the impression of a vast orginazation being run with half vast ideas. The only two things anyone seems to agree on is that it is expensive and it is inaccurate. There appears to be no accontability.Decisions appear to be made using inaccurate unverifiable information.

    At present we have three orginazations that appear to be compeating instead of cooperating. They are the IRS, SOCIAL SECURITY and the CENSUS they each have documentation that can be used to verify each other. There will be opposition to correcting the inaccurate data and when you wade through the opposition it will become apparent the only thing that is being objected to is accountability.

    To increase accountability the IRS must make a few changes. For referance I will use IRS 1040 INSTRUCTION Cat No 24811Vfor year 2010

    The change required starts on Page 7 Filing Requirements.

    KEEP: These rules apply to all U. S. citizens, regardless of where they live, and resident aliens. This appears on the top of the page 7.

    DELETE: The rest of pages 7,8,9,10, and 11.

    With the LABLE and Block 6 filled in this should account for everyone legally living in the country.

    Much of the information required by the Census is already contained in the IRS 1040 forms. If the Census rquires any additional information it can be added to the 1040 forms at the time of printing This will insure everyone identified will respond.

    The second Document SOCIAL SECURITY can now be used to verify the SOCIAL SECURITY number and the location of the person involved.

    Using the IRS and SOCIAL SECURITY documents will provide a list of THREE ares of interest.

    1. People who have provided the IRS and SOCIAL SECURITY the same verifiable information.
    2.People who are on the IRS records but not verivied by theSOCIAL SECURITY records.
    3. People who are on the SOCIAL SECURITY records but not verified by the IRS records.

    This information can now be utilized by the Census and they now have an reasonable accurate verifiable number to work with.

    As for the people on list 2 and 3. They should receive what the Census refers to as a second visit, to determine why there is a discrepancy.

    About this time somone / orginazation may clame, Not everyone was accountd for.
    This may be true, some people do not wish to be found. The people / orginazation making the clame are apparently aware of some. When they back their clame with identifiable individuals this ommission can be corrected by adding them to the record. An accurate number of people in this category will never be known. This category will drop to a lower level as additional individuals are identified by the police and health care givers.

    RONALD REAGAN had a saying that is approprate “TRUST BUT VERIFY”.

    Also keep in mind. “A PERSON WHO HAS NOTHING TO HIDE, HIDES NOTHING.”
