It didn't take me long to fill out the Census form.. Yup, marked 2 for the number of people living here and N/A the rest.. Took me a whole of 20 seconds...

I was gonna put NOYDB but NA is quicker to right..

NOYDB= None Of Your D$%^ Business lol...

Mine is sitting somewhere

Mine is sitting somewhere still unopened. They will probably come knocking on my door before I get it turned in. My DH is putting new counter tops, sink and plumbing in my kitchen so it is all torn to pieces at the moment. I dont have water or a sink.....driving me nuts! So the census is not high on my priority list. They should send them out in January when it is too cold to do anything else.

shame on you YB

Maybe you may feel the Census is an invasion of privacy. But there is at least one good reason for filling it in. That is that in a couple of centuries you census returns will be of great value to students of history.So YB when you fill in that CENSUS you should put in what might interest future generations and leave out anything that the present generation has no bloody right to know.

All they really need to know is

how many people live in the house, they do NOT need my personal info, my phone number, what I do for a living, what color my dog is....

All they need is the amount. Anything else that is none of their business will be offered freely if people fill out the form.

I don't know how it is over there but this government will use a lot of things against you, trust me....

Patriotic AND NYODB

It IS patriotic to be cooperative, and I don't answer the personal questions either.

Why? Like everything else, they misuse the info, and nothing good for 95% of us ever comes of it.

If writing the local senator/congressman falls on deaf ears, I have no reasonable expectation of educated decisions from govt.

I would hate to be a Duggar with all those kids to fill in about. :))
