Census Gestapo just visited my house
I have reasons for not doing the census.....they need not know my phone number or age. It's none of their @##$#$ business. Well, when I got home today I found one stalking our apartment building.

I had to get something from my garden out back first, then went into my apartment. Next thing you know, someone keeps repeatedly knocking on my door. Over and over and over.......and wouldn't let up for a couple of minutes.

After this person stopped knocking, I put some of my things away and then spoke with the building manager a couple of doors away. Unfortunately for me, the census person was STILL on the premises and followed me to my door and wouldn't stop bugging me.

Gee, I thought this was the United States of America, and that we're supposed to be free, but I guess I was wrong. This was the first time I saw this goon and he'll most likely be back.

Thoughts, anyone, as to how to get these ##$$%R# morons to leave me the $$%%# alone?

Pardon my vocabulary.....I'm tired, had a long day and am royally po'd about this ##$#$$%.

Unobtrusive? Why do they need my birthdate? Why do they need my phone number? Wasn't the sole purpose of the census to do an accurate count?

All they need to know is how many people live here. That's it. You should have seen how aggressive this guy was. I had just got home, was trying to put my stuff away and didn't need to be bothered....

This is ridiculous.

 Quoting: DianaJune



In defense of the enumerator, chances are they been to several homes that day with several people either

a) ignoring them, without even saying that they refuse to participate, just plain pretending they don't exist
b) sicking their dogs on them
c) threatening to sicken their dogs or other acts of violence
d) cuss at them and call them vulgar names
e) laugh at them and them slam the door (I would prefer this one out of the rest)

After such a day, you wouldn't want to put up with some s.o.b. that won't give you two minutes to answer a set of questions that you are required to get one way or another (and then having to come back the next day because of it).

Regardless of all that, you don't have to answer every question if you don't want to, just answer what you are willing to as long as you give the number of residents and your name and phone number so that the information can be verified and the enumerator is doing their job and not making stuff up. The rest is for statistics and planning public spending (knowing that there are a growing number of x means that more funds should be considered for x, or something). If the enumerator won't take a refusal of the other information (birthdate for instance), then he/she needs to take what they can get and move on.

Why do they keep calling my house ? They got my forms.

Why do you feel the need to call a census worker a "scumbag"?

Do know most census workers are just regular people trying to make a pay check? People that need the meager funds to make a car payment or buy groceries...

I've read enough of your posts to know I'd rather have a beer with the scumbag census worker than you.

Re: Census Gestapo just visited my house
Here's my story....
I gave them the number of people sent it back.

2 weeks later. A knock at the door
"Hello I'm here about a non-response to the Census at this address"
I say. "That is incorrect, I filled it out immediately and sent it back the same day...it was quite possibly the first one returned from my area"

He says. "Oh, well I was not made aware of that.. then maybe it's that it wasn't completed?"

I say "Well, I did not provide additional details beyond the number of people if that is what you mean by not complete"
We chat nicely for another 10 minutes and I give him zero additional information though he tries desperately to word his questions cleverly to extract information. He then tries to argue the necessity and even brings up the cause of education, the elderly, and children. He tells me that if I fail to answer further questions that I will be visited yet again by the ghost of Federal present and then again perhaps by Federal future.

I leave it with "Look, I'm happy to have a conversation with you. You seem like a nice guy and I know you are just doing the job that you were assigned. If I am lawfully required to provide additional information than I already have. I will happily do so upon being presented with a signed instrument detailing the penalties incurred and delivered the lawful authority or agent charged with the duty of enforcing the lawful provisions that I have failed to abide by
He smiles, thanks me and he is on his way.

Last week. The phone rings. It's a different Census worker. she and I talk for over 30 minutes. She tells me that I have an obligation. Mentions society, anarchy, duty, obligation. She tells me that Congress can ask any question they want. I say "really? So if they wanted to ask me if I eat pot pie every every Tuesday evening, they could?" She says "well...yes, I suppose they could" I say "And do you agree with that?"
She avoids answering and again tells me that I have an obligation. She says that under U.S.C. Title 13, I can be fined $100 for failing to answer any question and $500 for any answer that is determined to be false. I say but you just told me that it is confidential. She says "well...the case can be referred to the Justice Department--but you and I both know that is not going to happen."
I say hmmm. Given the fact that men have fought and died to protect and defend the liberties we enjoy in this land, I think $100 is a fair price to join them in defending liberty.. don't you think...after all, most consider it priceless.
She tells me that I have a "misconstrued" view of freedom and again reminds me of my obligation to society.

She tells me that if I fail to answer her questions that she will have to visit my home again. I tell her that she is welcome to come and speak but she will not be receiving any additional information.

30 minutes later I hear a knock at the door.
I say to my wife..."holy shit..she actually came over? It's dark outside now. 8:30 pm.
I think Ok, this should be interesting.

I open the door and I'm surprised to see that it's my neighbor a good guy, very nice family.

"Hi &^%* I'm sorry to bother you. I just thought you should know that the Census lady just came buy asking all sorts of questions...actually they went to "x's" house first and then "X" called us and said "Hey, a Census worker is crossing the street to ask questions about *^(* & #$*()&@# .. Don't tell her anything!"
So starts telling me all this stuff about you and I say hold it hold it! Why are you telling me this stuff!? And she says to me. "Look. I KNOW who they are. I know that their names are !_@)#$(* and !$#@* and I know that they have kids and that their names are @#_)&)(*%&^% I KNOW that they are in this grade and that go to THATschool...I KNOW all these things and more...I just need somebody to verify the details I already have..."
and then they ask me to sign a proxy! I told her, look, I know them well but if they chose not to answer these questions then I am going to respect their wishes."
Then she tells me that she is heading over to another woman's house around the block and starts telling me things about her!"

I am fortunate to have such great neighbors. By the way, this woman told my neighbors that I did not participate in the Census and that is why they needed their "help"!
My wife really not happy at all. Neither was I of course, but really it's water off a duck's back. It was clear that they were trying to make me think twice before I again fail to "fully respond" to the Census.

Is THIS the innocuous and confidential Census process that the government has been advertising?

The numbers of people delivered to the Census was supposed to account for proportionate representation.

Anything beyond that is information used to ensure maximum dependence upon tyrannical, gerrymandering aristocrats.
