Skip to comments.ACORN is after me regarding the census
Posted on 08/27/2009 7:44:31 AM PDT by PilotDave
My family got our 27? page census form. Many intrusive Q's like how many bathrooms in our house and what time to we go to work. In my continuing campain to be prisoner #1 in the gulag, I ripped off the front page and wrote the number of people living at my address and that we were all US citizens, even though they never asked in the entire booklet our citizenship. I also told them that that's all the info that Rahm and Acorn needed to know. Here's where it gets interesting. Since sending the form in, ACORN has been calling my wife's cell phone (we don't have a land line)number relentlesly, every day of the week. They always call from different area codes and leave a msg about a case number. Wow. I'm on my way.
“A people unwilling to use extreme violent force to preserve or obtain their liberty deserves the tyrants that rule them.”
The question at this point is are we actually willing to go in peace to the re-education camps, not I!
The Constitution is no longer in effect in the US.
Bathrooms = 0
I go to work when I’m not too hung-over.
Please post the whole questionnaire so i can provide more answers.
This could be fun.
Please keep us posted and call out if these mutts get out of hand. Im chomping at the bit to get in this fight and my very large mean dog wants to be turned loose out the back door when an ACORN activist at my front door.
It's helpful to know when no one is home. They stole the election and now they're down to citizen's homes.
Do a good deed today. Send the remaining 26 pages to Cuba as toilet paper.
Just write unintelligible responses. That way they can’t accuse you of not answering.. you just didn’t write neatly. Then if they contact you, ask for new forms every time.
Anyway on one news cast they went to extraordinary length to reassure LLEGALS that they MUST fill out the census regardless of their status. They won't be deported. They were just counting human beings. The count of human beings was important for voting reasons and state and federal money that they could benefit from. I was LIVID! ILLEGALS should NOT be counted or entitled to state and federal money. They should be DEPORTED!
After reviewing and rejecting all of the possible choices on his list I created a new one. Since there was a Pacific Islander category and I am of British ancestry and my wife of Irish I stated the race of the inhabitants of our home to be "Atlantic Islanders" which he dutifully entered on his form.
Note to the Feds: Come and get me, copper :)
Declaration To Make To Census Takers
“I hereby affirm that the provisions of Title 13 ``requiring’’ me to disclose my race, personal financial data, birthdate, or any other personal, private information to the Bureau of the Census, an agency of the United States government; constitutes an unreasonable, unwarranted search of my person, house, papers, and/or effects; and a governmental invasion of the sanctity of my home and the privacies of life. As such, these provisions violate the Fourth Amendment of the US Constitution, and are thus wholly void and I am not bound to obey them.
I have completed the only those sections of the Census form pertaining to the Constitutionally-mandated actual enumeration, as follows:
The actual number of people living at the address printed on the form, excluding untaxed Native Americans;
Age of each person in accordance with US Const. Amendment XIV, Section 2.
Sex of each person, in accordance with US Const. Amendment XIV, Section 2.
I have thus fulfilled my obligation to the attainment of the actual enumeration of the populace of the United States.
Any fine or other sanction that is levied by any office or organization stemming from the unconstitutional provisions of Title 13 in connection with my response to this or any other Census-related questioning will be challenged in a court of law.”
You do all of us Proud.
let us know where you are sent. :)
seriously it is up to us individually to do what we can to stop obama.
Maybe that’s the scheme, invite them in, shoot them then say they were intruders.

You can file a formal, criminal, complaint with your local Police Department. They have the means to track down the all those callers.
I was getting weird 'unknown' cell calls (I'd answer an no one was there). I called T-Mobile and they said I should call the police. That they could find the person, company, or org that was calling.
If the ACLU doesn’t protest this blatant domestic spying in the form of a census questionnaire, the ACLU will have lost the last shred of credibility.
I’m waiting for my Senators and Representatives to finish their rounds of golf, or whatever they do in Washington, and notice that we’re about to be raped.
From your link:
(Do I have to fill out the vencus form?)
Yes. Respondents are required to answer all questions on the American Community Survey (ACS) to the best of their ability. Response to this and other Census surveys is required by law (Section 221 of Title 13, Chapter 7, United States Code). This chapter also contains information regarding offenses and possible penalties. According to Section 221, persons who do not respond shall be fined not more than $100. Title 18 U.S.C. Section 3571 and Section 3559, in effect amends Title 13 U.S.C. Section 221 by changing the fine for anyone over 18 years old who refuses or willfully neglects to complete the questionnaire or answer questions posed by census takers from a fine of not more than $100 to not more than $5,000. More information.
Your answers are very important because they represent the answers of many other similar households in your community. The data that you and others provide in response to this survey are required to manage or evaluate federal and state government programs. If you submit an incomplete form or provide data that are unclear, we may contact you by phone or in person to obtain or clarify the missing information.
The ACS is part of the Decennial Census Program. It is a survey that is sent to a small percentage of our population on a rotating basis. These data previously were collected only in census years in conjunction with the decennial census. Since the ACS is conducted every year, rather than once every ten years, it will provide more current data throughout the decade. The Census Bureau may use the information it collects only for statistical purposes. Title 13 requires the Census Bureau to keep all information about you, and all other respondents, strictly confidential. Any Census Bureau employee who violates these provisions is subject to a fine up to $250,000, a prison sentence up to five years, or both.
I’d tell them that I’d sue them for harrasment if they keep calling the cell phone like that. You can also report them to the FCC - I did that with a credit card marketing company that was constantly calling my cell, interrupting me, and using up my minutes.
And I’m not answering anything more than you did, either - haven’t gotten it yet but if I did would be tempted to mail it back to the source wrapped around a dog turd with a fork in it.
That needs to be printed on a fine “American Citizen” letterhead.
It is an honor to be an enemy of 0bummerState.
And in refusing to provide the extraneous info, what a wonderful, non-violent way to gum up the works :)
They are not Census Bureau employees. They are from ACORN who is notorious for not having the best of staff working for them. I wouldn't trust them no matter how much they claim to be from the Census.
Sorry but I totally disagree with that statement. Our Constitution is your only hope. It is in as much effect as we want it to be.
“Do a good deed today. Send the remaining 26 pages to Cuba as toilet paper.”
When it comes to “Race”, I always check “other” and then write in “Human”. Hey, I answered the question, and I challenge you to prove me wrong!
“Id tell them that Id sue them for harrasment if they keep calling the cell phone like that. You can also report them to the FCC”
I’m sure that the feds wrote an exception to the telemarketing rules that prohibit cell phone solicitation. Do as I say, not as I do you know...
I wonder how our military feels about Obama. I'd love to hear their reaction to Obama’s end your life options. Just thinking about things ..........
The ACS isn't gonna bug 'em :(
It’s all about MONEY and taking away your rights.
Census data is also big business. Just imagine if millions of people refused to co-operate....
They will get mine back directly from the Post Office where I pick up my mail...Return to Sender.
Find out what the last census had for averages and answer all the questions with those averages:)
That statement along with the form with all non-required areas solidly blacked out (like redacted sections of public documents), only leaving the constitutionally required questions with answers.
Number of Bathrooms; Depends on the time of day and how much I have to eat or drink.
How many miles do I drive to work, and what time do I leave?; Depends on what car I drive, what route I take and what day I work. Pick a number between 0 and 75. The time?; never the same two days in a row.
How long am I away from home? Well, I work 8 or 12 hour days, you figure it out. And what hours am I away from home? And where do I keep my cash and valuables? And what is the best time to find me home? And do I have a security system? A mean dog?
You get the picture. ACORN has expenses not funded by Dear Leader that cover near enough of our worker lifestyles. They have to make ends meet somehow.
That’s true ONLY if the citizens let it happen. And we aren’t going to let that happen! Stand up for America!
If they are contracted by the Census Bureau then they are working as contract employees. The CB is on the hook. If they are not contracted or otherwise employeed by the CB then their forms and calls are illegal.
Wife & I escorted the “census taker” off our property.
This is the key. Tell them something, anything, just don't tell them the truth. I'm a hispanic, high school drop out, union member, making $453,069 and my religion is wiccan.
The ACLU still has a shred of credibility?
Uh Oh You now owe $453,000 in taxes.
That still doesn’t mean I should trust them. ;)
Goofing on the census is fun. I tell the truth to the IRS :-)
This is ACORN we’re talking about.
If you don’t fill it out, they’ll do it for you.
What time do we go to work?
Well, looking at the future of the American workforce under Obummer, the volunteer program is looking pretty good and going to work for the volunteer program looks like the day will start somewhere between 9-10am and end around 2pm.
However, this is dependent on approximately 10 variables.
Have a nice day.
