"City lags in returns to census"

This is either an announcement calling for ACORN results or an indicator that illegals are wanting a low profile in these tumultuous time.

I returned my Census form with only Question #1 answered - the number of jpeople living at my home. All the other questions had nothing to do with the Census. Then a Census worker came knocking on my door and lied claiming I had not returned my form.

What a waste of time and money.

If the question was on the census form than it did have SOMETHING to do with the census. There are no questions that can even be interpreted as invasive. If you are ok with shorting your community money bacause of some "they are out to get me" fear, I feel bad for those that live in our community.

If you filled out properly in the first place, YOU would not have wasted those resources you complain about being wasted. Ironic isn't it?

I'm wondering how they come up with these statistics without all the statistical data. How do they know it's 60% or whatever the numbers are....if they haven't gotten the updated census yet? That's like saying "50% of all Americans in the U.S. are not in the U.S." Doesn't one cancel out the other?

Don't these people realize that their community will lose out on government programs because they will be under-counted?

Think about the 200,000 jobs the Obama Admin claims they are creating, per day. Turns out, they hire and fire census takers daily, then add them to the "jobs created" list every day. I filled mine out but moved the next day LOL, I'm sure they're wondering whassup since the house is vacant LOL
