On the topic of the census, I don't participate or cooperate. I feel many of the questions are too invasive. There's really no need for this because they already know how many of us there are at the IRS. It's purely an information grab. At no time in the last century has collected information been free of abuse by bureaucrats or law enforcement. They say it's the law that you must participate but if you read the law, it allows them to collect the info and has no teeth for noncooperation.

@Tayo I'm a generic white guy from the Midwest, it wants my country of origin so I said White > German, but I think I'm not alone in not having a "country of origin"

@cavaliertusky
Both of my parents immigrated to the US in the 1950s so my country of origin is the NL but that doesn't matter if you're "white".

Not only that, but door-to-door census employees with paper census forms now have to be VERY VERY worried about contracting the each time they visit another household 😬
