Evening everyone! No ones been drinking for the last 10 days?!??! Had a great Saturday celebrating my best friends birthday. Between the three of us we enjoyed a Gurkha and Tat and a La Aurora! Needless to say, a good time was had by all!
Yeah, Only on #3 here, so more like posting while buzzed. This thread was looking a little neglected so had to stop by
Currently helping my wife fill out a census forum. Biggest waste of time ever.
1. Were you born in the US (if no skip to Q4)?
2. What state were you born in?
3. Are you a US Citizen?
And this was when my head exploded. Seeing as Q3 is skipped if you were born outside the US, and being born in the US grants citizenship by default. Q3 seems incredibly redundant!
Does this person have difficulty seeing with glasses or corrective lenses? (Hmm if that was the case, I'd probably go back to the eye doctor!)
Somehow we got chosen to do the in depth version of the census. Lucky us! Do it or go to jail
Time for another beer I think!
Someone could have been born in the US but then officially changed their citizenship to another country. Afterward if they happened to be living in the US during the census they would indeed be born here, but not a citizen.
Also, regarding the long form census, I got one this year as well. I filled out the questions I was comfortable with, and left the rest blank. The long form census is highly intrusive and goes well beyond the powers granted in the constitution. They say that you must legally fill it all out, but in reality no one has ever once been taken to court for refusing to fill out portions of the long form census. Mostly because they know damn well that it would never stand up to a Supreme Court challenge, if they never charge anyone, the Supreme Court won't have a case to hear.
