Tear Up Your Census Form for a Better America –

Tear Up Your Census Form for a Better America –
"If, like me, you've received not one but three mailings from the U.S. Census Bureau proclaiming "Your Response Is Required By Law," you're probably wondering whether to respond, toss the questionnaire in the trash, or fill it with bogus information. 
We're in good company, since about a third of households plan to ignore the census, according to the government itself.
Image result for Tear Up Your Census FormIn the past, I've filled in preposterous answers, then repeated them with a straight face when a harried-looking census field worker knocked on my door (that's a pleasure I'll miss this year, with in-person interviews suspended).
It's good fun, it denies potentially dangerous information to a government agency that has a history of misusing the data it collects and, if repeated far and wide, it might spur nosy bureaucrats to try something less intrusive.
Less intrusive would be nice.
Census questions, you may have noticed, go a bit beyond the simple head count authorized by the Constitution. Article 1, Section 2 of the Constitution specifies an "actual Enumeration … within every subsequent Term of ten Years, in such Manner as they shall by Law direct."
There's nothing in there about demanding names, the types of our homes, the nature of our relationships with the people with whom we live, our ethnicity, or the details of our finances (if you were unlucky enough to get the old long form or the modern American Community Survey).
That's all just bureaucratic curiosity.
Our answers are supposed to be confidential..."

"As if the FDA couldn't have been more of a roadblock, I guess we had the capability of sterilizing masks 20 times, but it didn't happen cause... illegal.
I seriously hope people take a hard look at the regulatory structure of the health care system after all this."
