  • Time will tell how much the Democrats will be able to cheat on the census count

    The Collins Report ^ | April 20, 2010 | Kevin “Coach” Collins
    The deadline for returning US Census forms quietly came and went last Friday with about a 68% response. This is probably good news because the kind of Americans whose influence on the census count does us all the most good are more likely to have responded. Maybe, just maybe, the illegal aliens didn’t respond because their leaders told them to avoid the process. We should have no complaints about that. On May 1 census workers will be sent out to knock on doors and count people who didn’t respond. This is where the major cheating will come in. Although the...
  • More Post Racial Hum-bug

    I received my census form, dutifully filled it out and mailed it off. In the blank reserved for racial classification I wrote in capital letters, “HUMAN.” It was widely reported that for racial classification President Obama checked the box marked “African-American” as opposed to writing in “mixed race,” which would have been more factually correct, but wouldn’t have played well with black voters (or so he supposed). It is my considered opinion that if the President can make a political statement when filling out his census form I can as well. Obama chose to shore up his street cred; I...

    Concordian College ^ | April 8th 2010 | Mary Beenken
    Local funding, college grants, and a congressional seat: these are all things that Minnesota college students could lose, depending on the results of the upcoming 2010 census. Unfortunately, college students are also one of the groups that the United States Census Bureau has the most difficulty counting. “Sometimes when students are busy with classes they forget basic civic obligations,” said Barbara Ronningen, a demographer for the state of Minnesota. According to the 2010 Census Web site, the federal government appropriates about $400 billion to state, local, and tribal governments for schools and other projects. The money from these funds is...

    BROWNSVILLE — After months of encouraging people to heed U.S. Census billboards and TV spots urging everyone to mail in their all-important census forms, it wasn't until around April 1, or “Census Day,” that Rio Grande Valley leaders learned that as many as a quarter of the area's residents won't be getting the mailings at all. “I thought it was an April Fool's joke,” Hidalgo County Judge Rene Ramirez said of the Census Bureau's decision to go door-to-door in colonias. Colonias are subdivisions that sprang up as recent immigrants built or parked homes, often substandard, on tracts that lacked paved...

    While the United States Census is your chance to be counted, 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS learned it is also your chance to spend millions on dog booties, baby bibs and footballs. The trinkets are part of a marketing plan that some call a huge waste. Everything from hats and backpacks to pens and t-shirts--all bearing the 2010 Census logo--have been given out at census parties and sent to city clerks to be distributed. For example attendees at a recent census party in Minneapolis--including politicians and Census Director Robert Grive--took home gift bags filled with census souvenirs. Nationwide, the government spent roughly...

    Remember how we were all strictly warned about the penalties for giving false information on our census forms? Well, once again we see how double standards are in play for folks that liberals deem "special." For even though 45 states do not recognize homosexual marriages, the bureaucrats who are running the U.S. Census do. And they are actively encouraging homosexual couples to lie on the census forms.

    The Patriot Post ^ | April 7, 2010 | Michelle Malkin
    President Obama's politicized, profligate U.S. census drive is so desperate for positive press that it has now recruited former Bush senior adviser Karl Rove to do public service announcements. Rove pleads on video: "Please answer the 10 easy questions. They're almost the same ones Madison helped write for the first census back in 1790." Message: If you don't join the census bandwagon, James Madison will have lost! Sorry, Mr. Rove. Playing the Founding Fathers card isn't going to quell conservative criticism of how the Obama administration has exploited the census boondoggle for both economic and ideological gain. For the record,...

    Census Day was a big day at the office of the National Council of La Raza, not only because it was the final day of the drive to reduce the chronic undercount of Hispanic residents but because it marked a time when Latinos in the United States could obtain the latest measure of their growing political power. The largest and fastest-growing minority group finds itself in an anomalous position this year. In some respects, its stature has never been higher, with the Supreme Court appointment of Sonia Sotomayor signaling that one more historic barrier has fallen to the talent and...

    I take issue with Rove’s assertion that the questions in the 2010 Census are “almost the same ones Madison helped write for the first Census back in 1790.” According to www.census.gov, the government’s own website, the 1790 questionnaire asked the name of the family head, free white males over 16 years, free white males under 16 years, free white females, slaves, and any other free persons living in the household. In the next two counts, the questions were scaled back to ask only the head of the household, all free persons and their ages/genders, and slaves. Beginning in 1820, the...

    Census 2010 and the LawCensus: An official, usually periodic enumeration of a population,often including the collection of related demographic information.– Federal Depository Library ProgramIntroductionAs of April 1, 2010, an extremely high-pressured demand is being made by the government that every person in the United States respond to questions put forth by the Census Bureau through the mechanism of what is being called "Census 2010." However many people have serious concerns about this governmental demand for personal identification information. Especially since, in preparation for this event, the Census Bureau for the first time employed GPS location verification for virtually every house...

    Some Republicans are worried that an anti-government surge among conservatives will lead to lower participation in the U.S. census, which they fear could reduce the number of Republican seats in Congress and state legislatures. The census, which is currently being collated and is gathered every ten years, dictates the distribution of federal funding, how many House members each state gets and how congressional and legislative districts are drawn within states.

    He may be the world's foremost mixed-race leader, but when it came to the official government head count, President Barack Obama gave only one answer to the question about his ethnic background: African-American. The White House confirmed Friday that Obama did not check multiple boxes on his U.S. Census form, or choose the option that allows him to elaborate on his racial heritage. He ticked the box that says "Black, African Am., or Negro."

    Today is national Census Day, the official date used as a marking point for the biennial national population count. ...Texas has been lagging behind the rest of the country. But our Texas on the Potomac readers say there's a very good reason why they hadn't return them before today: The form states that the Census count takes place on April 1. Question 1 on the Census form asks: "How many people are living in this house on April 1st?" ..."The form has been widely publicized as being a legal requirement and at our house, we're not about to sign and...

The recession is finally over and the American people are going back to work, right? Well, not quite. The employment number on Friday will be positive but not because real companies are actually hiring people for real jobs. The number will be positive because of….wait for it….the government.

    Gay and lesbian couples who share a home may identify one another as "husband or wife" on their 2010 census forms if that's how they view their relationship — even if they have not legally married in any of the places where it is allowed. And whatever they say on that form is precisely how the government will count them. Advocates who have long sought a complete count of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community say this falls short but is still a partial breakthrough — one they say offers tacit acknowledgment of the very relationships the federal...
  • Fearful Tenants Say Count Me Out Of Census

    PIERSON -- The population in Pierson is estimated at 2,600, but even the mayor believes it could be higher than that. Migrant workers, not all of them here legally, make up a big part of the fern capital of the world. Few know just how many live in anonymity. Census forms have arrived in the mail, but not everyone is filling them out. "No, I have not filled it out,” said Alejandrina Hernandez. “Because it is in English." The language barrier is only one reason. Even though census officials say all information given to that agency will be used by...
