Uninformed Census Workers who want to post "We don't ask those questions" will be omitted from comments. You have not done your homework. IF YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND the difference between the short and long forms watch this video:
"The Census Part 2, Clarifications"
Many people seem to miss the fact that there is a longer, more invasive form called the "American Community Survey". It is given to 3 million people by the Census Bureau EVERY YEAR. Comments like "I just filled out my form and it didn't have any of the questions you mentioned" are generally withheld from posting.
Comments will only appear after approval to keep the page civil, intelligent and relevant.
If you want the straight scoop, a great online resource of all kinds information about the Census is at: http://www.thejohnnycakefiles.com/census
Many people have requested the list below:
QUESTIONS THAT THE CENSUS BUREAU REFUSED OR FAILED TO ANSWER (from Jerry Day's Matrix News Network segment: "The Census Is Getting Personal"):
1) The Constitution authorizes government to count people but it does not authorize the taking of private information or even the names of individuals. From where does the Census Bureau derive authority to demand our private information?
2) Is there any limit to the amount and type of private information that the Census bureau may demand and collect?
3) Under what Constitutional authority does the Census Bureau collect information now from 250,000 people per month of every year?
4) The 4th Amendment to the Constitution prohibits government search and seizure of private information without a court warrant based on probable cause, Current Census policies violate that Amendment do they not?
5) By what Constitutional authority does the Census Bureau threaten penalties for failure to provide personal information?
6) The Census Bureau claims it maintains privacy of personal information, Are there any circumstances under which law enforcement or spy agencies can access Census information?
7) Since presumably Census data may be subpoenaed by law enforcement, may individuals refuse to answer questions according to the fifth Amendment?
8) Why has the Census Bureau decided to collect GPS coordinates for every home?
9) Virtually every government database has been either lost, hacked or compromised, would the Census Bureau's claim of data security not be an outright lie or at best highly improbable?
10) How would the Census Bureau locate, protect and compensate those individuals whose data becomes compromised?
There is a great deal of confusion about the Census "short form" and "Long Form" because the Census Bureau has failed to equally publicize the two current approaches. Part of the video refers to the long form called the "American Community Survey" which has 12 pages of questions, many of which are much more probing than the short form. A PDF file of the the long form can be viewed at this link: http://www.jerryday.com/images/ACS-1-...

Many people who post messages in opposition to this video (meaning opposed to the Constitution) seem to think that government is some benevolent angelic nanny that only wants the best for you and I. Even in public schools you can learn differently. If you have any doubt as to the evil and corruption within government I recommend this video excerpt from Bill Moyers' 1987 PBS Documentary "The Secret Government" at:
