    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.

    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.

    That sucks.

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

    The amount of times a politician uses the word "Community" in their rants is a good indication of how far Left they are in their "Community Organizer" world. Just listen and pay closer attention. Using the phrase "American Community Survey" really does say it all. People are right to not trust it.

    No, and I hope I don't because the questions are way too invasive. I had a problem with the 2000 Census form. I just answered a few of the questions and let several blank. They tried to contact me several times, but I would never answer them. The government seems to get more oppressive every year.

    I filled out the short form but still don't understand the controversy. This info is already available to the govt. My municipality knows how many bathrooms I have and the IRS knows how much we make. What is the big deal?

    yeah, you're right about that...holy shit!!! We agree'd on something. LOL

    I'm getting the feeling that there isn't going to be much that's voluntary anymore...unless you're volunteering at a community center.

    Well, the big deal is that it's mandatory to fill it out or get fined up to $5000 if you don't. It's a big deal because they are diving way deeper into your personal information than just how many bathrooms you have and requiring you to answer the questions, without option to decline. It's a big deal because if you get one and DON'T fill it out, you are considered a criminal.

    It's a big deal because the damn thing is TWENTY EIGHT pages long!!!!
