    Play hard to get with Census survey, and you might win a gift card

    Play hard to get with Census survey, and you might win a gift card

    Your tax dollars at work.

    Yesterday I posted the response from Matt in Colorado to the American Community Survey being conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau.

    Reader James forwards this note and photo:

    I read your post about the census surveyers, They’ve been bugging me too. This was on my door a week or so ago.


    Donations tax deductible
    to the full extent allowed by law.


    “Sissy” is a guy, wearing pantyhose and a short skirt. ‘Friends of Barney’ sent he, she, it..

    Picture forthcoming..

    Well here it is, gosh that was fast. Hey Sissy

    I refused to partake in the census. It was too invasive and much was none of their business. They returned many times and I never opened the door. Then I left the state anyway.

    So no free debit card for me even if I was tempted to take it.

    la lala lala

    My folks just moved to a different town, and had a census worker come by their house the other day looking for the previous occupants, then wanted to talk to them.

    By way of comparison , we do a full census every 5 years.

    Once I was in a set pool of people who were interviewed monthly for 12 months for research purposes by the Bureau of Stats but other than that I cannot recall ever being questioned.

    Your stories have given me an idea for a movie . Deliverance 2 whereby Burt Reynolds is a Census Taker armed with a $40 EBT card . I am just about to visualize the oink oink scene so ….

    Maybe Sissy should promise to bring along Buffy, Jodie and Mr French.
