I'm not online today, but this came through a group I'm on about the 2010 Census questionnaire.
What kind of car I drive and where I drive it?
Must be to send Federal monies to pave my mountain roads.
Where I work and how long it takes to get there, what time I leave, etc?
Must be so we can make more "suitable" changes to Daylight Savings Time.
How many rooms are in my house, if I have a stove, toilets, showers?
Obviously that's for funding to ensure I have the right water meter and make sure I'm being taxed accordingly.
Do my children attend public school or private, what ages are they and what grades they are in?
Must be so they can cut back my tax portion that goes to the county school system we don't use. Of course, they'll just start taxing me per child, like they do cattle head or something.
Details concerning my income and how it's spent, where it comes from?
Well, there go my dreams of setting up a still and making my own biodiesel so I can snub my nose at them Revenuers!
Married, divorced, remarried, maybe even my fertility information?
LOL...I'm totally infertile, obviously. These 9 children came as a bonus with the purchase of the 20 acres. And here I thought the Government did that so I could later apply for a small business loan...
Seriously though, I have not checked out the link yet, being offline today, but there is nothing whatsoever Big Brother needs any of that knowledge for. I'm not naïve enough to believe it would be for future state funding in the areas of education, job services or my quality of life.
Think I need to be on vacation when the poll takers come to town.
You can see the complete questionnaire at: http://2010.census.gov/2010census/pdf/2010ACSnotebook.pdf
Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.
