    And wingnuts eat it up

    Glenn Beck vs. the Census - The Week

    Glenn Beck has a message for Americans who are dutifully filling out 2010 Census forms: Stop. Beck told his Fox News audience that participating in the Census is a form of modern-day "slavery." Sharing personal information with the government, he says, increases our dependence on Washington

    In response, Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert suggested that Beck's remarks might offend descendents of actual slavery — jokily theorizing that Beck must "broadcast at a frequency only whites can hear."

    Good. The less people counted in red states the better.

    I filled out Census form yesterday!

    O! Please massa! Doncha beat on po' ol' Nosmo no mo'!

    Or is it more like "Nosmo and the Hebrewites must not outwit us a second time! My armor! My chariot!"

    So let it be written. So let it be done!

    Why do people still listen to the tool Beck?

    I always thought the government was supposed to have a 'blind eye' when it came to things like race, age, sex, etc...

    So why do they ask your race, age, sex, etc.?

    Let me just clarify what you're saying here..... that the 'wingnuts' who watch Beck eat up a comment that you actually haven't seen in context. Is that right?

    So, in fact..... you too are a 'wingnut' who is eating up something you found on a website - without actually verifying what Beck actually said.

    OK. I'm clear. You're as much of a wing nut as those who take everything Beck says as gospel.

    He does realize that appropriation of House and Senate seats is based on the results of the Census, right?

    That means that if he viewers decide to stop, then the Red States are pretty much screwed.

    Michelle Bachmann said the same thing, until she realized her seat would be basically deleted if people didnt fill out the census. Now she is quiet about it. lol

    Beck is a fucking idiot, but his fans are worse. At least he is getting rich with this clown crap, his fans believe him. That is what is sad.

    I threw my Census forms in the garbage. Sorry Ravi, I live in a blue state :(

    Personally, I think Beck is way over the top on a lot of issues, but I agree with him that this census is ridiculous waste of time. Why are they so obsessed with race? Fuck em, I'm not filling it out.

    BTW, I have no worries about "the law" that says I have to fill it out. "Census? what's that? Oh, I never got it? Did you send it certified?" :lol:

    When they force you to fill it in, put 'Jedi Knight' as your religion. May the force be with you.

    Don't bitch when your congressional district gets gerrymandered!

    Way to protest! Screw yourself!

    Next time try the technique perfected by Buddhist monks in Southeast Asia. A can of gasoline and a zippo lighter.
