Skip to comments.HURT: We’re from the government and we’re here to learn everything about you

Rage over the waste and injustice of agents sent by the federal government to bang on doors of law-abiding citizens to ask probing, creepy questions is normally something that bubbles up only every 10 years. But ever since the federal government became a cancerous leviathan, the outrage is now an annual occurrence.
The first census in 1790 asked a bare minimum of questions essential for establishing congressional districts of equal populations. Despite the abhorrent practice of slavery at the time and the counting of blacks for purposes of their fractional apportionment the whole endeavor was aimed at fairness.

The only thing I see that’s flawed in the commentary is that it speaks to the census. I think the fedgov knows pretty much everything about most of us independent of the census.
a new line, “We’re from the government and we’re here to hurt you per President Odungo”
agreed. government is terminally redundant.
Good for you.
When I get the census form, I either don’t respond to the questions I don’t like or I answer “NOYB” (none of your business).
I haven’t been bothered by the jerks.
hee hee hee
I have always thought the questions on the American Community Survey were intended for use in intensive community planning, specifically for forcing as many Americans as possible to live within walking distance of their jobs to “save energy”.
I am equally sure the answers are cross referenced to each citizen’s IRS records to uncover tax fraud.
The questions regarding bedrooms and bathrooms always conjure up the scene in Dr. Zhivago where a government bureaucrat lectures him on the number of families his mansion could hold and his selfishness at keeping it for himself. I have no doubt Obama and his minions would redistribute housing if they dared.
We also have our property posted. We don’t answer the door to the census takers. We filled out the required info on the census form and mailed it back. 2 people live in our house. End of census. At one point they sent out a woman who was so obnoxious we finally opened the door and told her to get off the property. As far as we are concerned we are done for the next 10 years.

I didn’t answer the last census or the one before it. Last time they sent 2 census takers to my home. In this neighborhood, I don’t open the door for anyone unless I expect them. I was told by a neighbor that one census taker asked her questions about me, but the neighbor said she really didn’t know anything about me. Actually, the neighbor wasn’t lying. Beyond the occasional hello, I don’t know the neighbors and they don’t know me. Better and safer that way.
The feds could learn what they need to know about me from my SS disability records. I’m not going to help them.
Once every ten years. Two adults, as of right now 3 children.
For everything else...
Get off my lawn.
Actually, the IRS sued the Census to try to get information and the SCOTUS shot them down.
Our driveway is 1850 feet long, downhill from the county blacktop. The gate is at the top of the hill, posted with a large no trespassing sign.
The census taker parked in from of the sign and gate and our alarm system picked him up walking down the hill. He made it half way down when we walked up behind him and told him to get off private property. He said he was a federal employee. I said the sheriff was on his way.

The census workers are just ordinary people, temps, probably hired at your local employment office. They’re not sufficiently well-organized to have a modus operandi.
My email format was just changed yesterday (against my wishes) and this morning an email from a friend had a notation over on the right side that I could get more info on her.
Her email is her business email and the person (same name) that was highlighted was NOT my friend. But what is going on with this?
The Constitution doesn’t say that you are allowed to drive over the speed limit, doesn’t mean laws and statutes do not apply.
