    How many people have their homes and car/s paid for?




    Even if you have a home and car paid for can you afford to pay more taxes?

    Everything paid for including my funeral.

    Including kegs and food and drivers for the drunks at the visitation.

    I guess you're looking for a serious answer here. So many possibilities.

    We always pay cash for our cars. We bought a few new windows for our house about 5 months ago, so I guess it's not completely paid for until we finish paying them off in about 6 months. (12-month no-interest financing, 'ya know.)

    Anyway, why on the Census form did the gubmit axe if your house was paid off? I guess since they control the financial system, that's a valid question. In 10 years, they'll probably ask if you own all your internal organs.

    My census form asked no such questions.

    I rent, but the car is paid for.

    I am paying cash for school as I do it.

    It was question #3 on the US Census form:

    The Questions on the Form - 2010 Census

    You didn't fill out your census form yet, have you... :eusa_whistle:

    OHH yeah, I forgot that one, the rest dealt with race, age, etc.

    My mistake my apologies.

    The simpilest census for I had seen. Several asked about indoor plumbing, etc in the past.
    How many mules you owned, etc.
