Fact: What happens if I donít respond? Although the law makes it a crime not to answer the decennial census, the American Community Survey and other mandatory censuses, and authorizes the courts to impose a fine of up to $5,000 for failure to respond, the Census Bureau views this approach as a last resort. Rather than emphasizing or seeking the imposition of penalties, we encourage response by explaining the importance of the questions we ask and how the information benefits the community.
Fact: In 2010, every residence will receive a short form of just 10 questions.
I think she was talking about the Short form does not as citizenship questions ? but the long one does.
My opinion I took those 10 year census before with no problems with the questions - yes there were some questions that are sorta personal and some down right stupid
But hey I firmly believe that the census is very important how else would we know how many people are in traffic at any given hour , how many people are whackos , how many people need special care , how many people need jobs , how many people are under educated , how many people need medical insurance - yada yada
Only nimrods would believe the gov has alternative motives
And I don't by into her allegation that the gov used the census to round up Japanese either - much easier to used the phone book and pick out every Japanese name . Looks like what they did since if they used the census then why they picked up the US born ones ?
Well Beck does make some points - in his mind and said it in some ways
White affluent male "Beck" - gets a knock on the door "black male" ACORN -
1 - How many white women you have in the house ? 2 - How much money do you make ? 3 - What time EXACTLY you leave for work ? 4 - What time EXACTLY you come home from work ? 5 - Where does your white daughters go to school ?
Maybe it is just me but it seem Beck was on a racial slant
