We Are Deep In the Heart of Texas

Nomadic seasons of farming adventures with nature thrown in to include; a pinch of family, snippets of friends, counting our blessings, paying IT forward, home school, and the spicy things I decide to rant about.

What's the Big Deal?

We found this form hanging on our fence instead of in our mailbox.  Is it any wonder why 'the count' is not accurate?

I have seen an article about Houston and Dallas gaining 140K peeps each due to the economy.  What this means is, more Texans representatives in the HOUSE. LOL

Is the US ready for that? Texas is a huge 'RED' state with metropolitan areas leaning heavily towards 'Blue' causes. 

Another thing that cracks me up, peeps just don't realize in the United States Constitution  there is a legal requirement --  a blurb about counting folks to ensure proper representation.  So this means the CENSUS is necessary and part of the law of the land.  I don't understand the apprehension about the information contained with the form.  Folks give away more personal data on Facebook and Twitter.

Total time to answer 32 questions, 5 mins.....................

I agree - but we have 3 different properties where we've received a census. Should we fill out all three so we can increase our odds of getting representation that we want? Hmmm...

I also agree with "eruct". Definitely sounds more elegant (and volcanic) - I'm all for elegant!

WOW, Three humsssssss?

That would be a pain...

So, what do you do in that situation?

Funny thing, this is the first time I had to fill out census paper work. I wonder how the military was accounted?
