    And it bugs me about its attitude.

    It does not ask you to fullfil a constitituional obligation. It ask you to make sure you are lined up correctly for the pork teat. It doesn't even mention the constitution.


    The letter:

    I added my own annotations. What about our representation in congress? Is that too trivial to mention? What about redistricting here in the state of Oregon. That is too trivial as well.

    But the really important part of the census is how much we can score off our neighbors. I can see Adams, Jefferson, Madison, Marshall and the rest of the boys being thrilled about that.

    Perhaps we should all send a return note asking why our districts should have to rely on the federal government to decide how to distribute the money BACK to our community that they TOOK from our community.

    Do you live in a red state? If so, all the cool people in red states are going to protest the census by pretending each of their households contains only one person.

    LOL!!! The stupidity about the census is hilarious.

    It's about firehouses, schools, police departments, libraries, parks. If you hate these things, definitely don't fill out your census.

    You know, just because people like you have no problem with the overgrowth of the federal government doesn't mean that it's not still a problem. Uncle Sam has morphed into a bastardized version of Robin Hood with your blessing.

    I personally recommend that you take your census and burn it so that nobody can accuse you of nursing off the Government teat
