http://www.census.gov/acs/www/SBasic.../factsheet.htm


And if so, how do you feel about the questions?

Will you answer them?

Are you concerned about the $100 to $5000 fine for not answering the survey?

Do you consider it to be a necessary or invasive line of questions?

I kind of already know the answers I'll get from some...just curious about some of the open minded folks out there.

Anything with the word "Community" in it is usually being presented by a corrupt & fraudulent "Community Organizer" group like ACORN. People should be very wary. It probably is bogus.

They need to know if my house has a bathroom, kitchen, and plumbing?

Well, if they don't know, and I answer "no", will my property taxes go down? Because that's about $4k I can spend elsewhere..

Beware of any politician who repeatedly uses the word "Community" over and over in their rants. They are most likely corrupt Left Wing "Community Organizer" cretins. You just have to know their lingo. The fact they're calling it an "American Community Survey" should set off alarm bells for anyone with some common sense left. It's all just a sad & corrupt "Community Organizer" scam in the end. It is what it is.

I take it then that you wouldn't participate if you were selected to recieve the survey...

You mean like this:

Community of Christ
Community of Science
Community of Caring
Community of Concern
Community of Democracies
Community of Writers
Community of European Railways
The Community of Jesus
The Community of Celebration
A Community of Friends
Community of Welcoming Congregations
Community of Peace Academy
The Wellness Community
Community of Hope


There are tons of others.

Pssst..........if you google it, you'll discover that MOST things with 'community' in their name are religion related. ROFLMAO.....(you are wrong so often, you're taking the fun out of this)..........LOL

Just pay attention and listen closely to politician rants. If they're using the word "Community" over and over in their rants then you know they're just corrupt Leftist "Community Organizer" cretins. It's all there in their lingo. People just need to pay closer attention.

No, it's part of the census. It's what replaced the long form and it has nothing to do with any politicians...it's not political. Maybe, and here's a wild idea, you should actually research things and know what you're talking about. It's so much more accurate than wild guesses.

And if so, how do you feel about the questions?

Will you answer them?

Are you concerned about the $100 to $5000 fine for not answering the survey?

Do you consider it to be a necessary or invasive line of questions?

I kind of already know the answers I'll get from some...just curious about some of the open minded folks out there.

That sucks.

I don't see where they have the authority under census provisions. It should be voluntary
