American Community Survey - borderline harassment

Anybody else in Brookville receive the 20 page American Community Survey from the Census Bureau? I did, filled it out but forgot to mail it. They even sent me another 20 page survey. For weeks, the Census Bureau calls my house several times a day. I just got off the phone with them 1/2 hour ago. They wanted me to answer the questions on the phone. Told them I mailed it out 5 days ago. They told me if they don't receive it in 5 days they will call me back again. What the hell is so important about this "survey" that they would spend taxpayer money making numerous phone calls and multiple mailings? Nothing like being harassed by the government. Republicans are saying that this survey is a violation of the taxpayer's privacy and should be abolished. That this survey actually replaced the "long form census form". I already returned my census information back in March. Oh, and on the envelope it says "Americans are required by law to fill out and return."

Seriously. There are websites devoted to this very topic. It is indeed a government tactic. Their rhetoric says its important to us. But in reality, it is important to them to know everything about us at all times. The next time someone calls you about the acs, tell that person you are doing a survey that you think is important to the american people. Tell them you want their name, address, phone number, make and model of their car, children's names, ages, and place of school. I guarantee you they won't give you this "private" information.

Its a government hypocrisy, conspiracy, tyranny. Don't volunteer ANY info to them. If they ask if you live there, say THATS PRIVATE INFORMATION. Hang up on them. Shut the door in their faces. Whatever you have to. Don't let them railroad us anymore. WE're all sick of it.
