Census Bus Rolls Into Greenville

If you haven't filled out your Census form yet, you only have until Thursday to do so or you'll likely get a knock on your door from a Census worker.

To raise awareness about the deadline, the 2010 Census tour bus rolled into downtown Greenville Tuesday afternoon. Many state and local politicians attended the event.

Officials say the Census data helps the government divide more than 400 billion dollars of federal funding ever year.

If you do not fill out the Census, you could be fined up to 5,000.

    Hey San Diegan :-) Saw your post about moving the other day. Travel safe. Paul: You can have my extra if you want it. lol I found out what happens if you wait to mail it close to the actual date that makes sense, since it says April 1, 2010... They send you a whole new form (along with an extra sheet explaining how it's confidential & required by law). WTH? So I'm legally required to lie. That's one for the record books, I think. How do I know for sure who will be living here on April 1 if it's early March? I wonder if I'm allowed to send the Census Bureau a letter telling them they screwed up.

    I've beefed up the number of Census workers which may or may not be wearing ACORN shirts I helped design. You can make all the fun you want and I assure you won't be laughing after I declare Marshal Law and finalize the NWO treaty between the E.U. and what's left of my "changed" un-Untited States of America which name will no longer exist. The Census count will help our big brother databases keep up with all world citizens in my NWO. Within my health scare plan there's provisions for enforcing everyone to receive the "mark" or chip in their right hand or forehead so myself and our socialist system can keep up with everything about you. How the stupid ignorant Democrats in this country have become by unknowingly going along with my agenda thinking my change is for their benefit. hehee. We have done it Bilderberg group along with Bilderberg memeber Mr. Biden!!! America the great, land of the free is no longer. To all my comminist friends and colleagues, Mr. Ayers, Soros, & Thanks Allah!

    More government waste. Just send the forms, people will or won't fill them out. Follow up. Stop throwning money away on tour buses, superbowl ads, etc. No wonder the cost jumped from $17 per person to over $100 per person.

    To: San Diegian, if you don't fill out the census here you certainly won't exist. Maybe that is what you want? The census is based on where you live on April 1!

    I lost my census (I think I threw it away) and besides, I'm moving to CA in 23 days...I will not answer my door if a census worker comes knocking...I am moving out of Greenville anyway. Thank God, lol! CA here I come.

    Considering the White House took direct control over the census, I wonder which demographic the "census bus" will concentrate on? Hmmmmmmm...

    I just have to point & laugh @ a few things on the form on principle. 1st According to the form, Hispanic, Latino, & Spanish are not races. You do have to answer both 8 & 9, of course... so when you get to #9, if you've stated you're hispanic in #8, what do you say you are.. white? I know someone who went to Other Race & again wrote "Hispanic". lol Geeze. I think what I heard Rush suggested was right on this, write in "American". 2nd, I'm still insulted by the questions prying into whether you have houseguests ("staying here temporarily"), but isn't the "living here" people covered in #1? Question 2 is irrelevant & intrusive. I still think it's not their business whether a mortgage is paid off or not. Rent, Own, No Rent. That should be it. Lastly.. Why've they been in such an all-fired hurry for us to mail it? The questions are all applied to April 1, 2010 - a date we have not yet arrived at. If I send it now, am I not falsifying information? What if the info changes by that date?

    What if we didn't get one? What do we have to do to get one?

    Almost decided to not send mine in just to see if they would send a census worker wearing a ACORN shirt.Then I could have had some fun with them.Right before I kicked them out!

    "If you do not fill out the Census, you could be fined up to 5,000"...yet the last person to be fined was in 1973. (I smell an empty threat)
