Census 2010

Yay, it's time for a new census. The federal guvmint uses census data to determine how it will redistribute $400 billion dollars that it has taken from citizens back to the citizens it was taken from. This infuriates me because it shows that government is upside down. The Feds should be doing national defense, and that's about it. Funding for local amenities should come from the local tax base.

According to the county website, Howard County will lose $700 per year for each person that does not return the census documents by mail. This means that I will cost the county $7,000 by placing the form directly into the trash can. That also creates an incentive to overstate the number of people living in your home.

I recall that some old lady from the census bureau actually came to my house and started asking me questions last time this thing was mailed out and I didn't return it.

Oh, proving that government is 20 years behind everyone else, you can't submit the form online.

You're gonna love this. Obama is proposing increasing the child tax credit to provide relief to the middle class.

That's right, promote behavior that is damaging micro families on up to the macro environment.

Where is his head?

All it proves is that you are wasting taxpayers' money by not cooperating. There's a word for that.
