census

Old liberal person Bill Press yesterday asked Robert Gibbs about “CNN’s” Erick Erickson, who would love to threaten census workers with guns. This gave Robert Gibbs an opportunity to rip the dickens out of Erick Erickson and wingnuts, and since CNN MUST NEVER APPEAR too far to either side of the debate, they have now […]

It seems kind of crazy to think that encouraging a bunch of ignorant, racist, paranoid fucktards to hate the United States Government might actually backfire on the Republicans who would like to be in charge of that very same United States Government they’re encouraging a bunch of ignorant, racist, paranoid fucktards to rise up against, […]

Of course this story got buried on the weekend, when nobody pays attention to anything. Obama, that thief who somehow won the election by getting all those popular and electoral votes, filled out his nasty socialist Census — when did we have to deal with that intrusive crap before Nobama, eh? — and what do […]

Wingnuts are, have been, and will be for the foreseeable future furious over the tyrannical overreach inherent in the ACS survey, a more detailed extension of the Census that the government will make a few million people fill out every year. Sometimes, if you are going out of your way to avoid it, ACS workers […]

During yesterday’s National Day of the Census — do you remember? did you get good presents? — we wondered why so many people (including your editors) didn’t get a census form. How are we supposed to report the eleventeen Mexican-Thai sex slaves living in our basement, so the Government can provide VD clinics for them […]

We heard on the radio that today was National Census Celebration Day, in celebration of the Census, which is happening now, as Wolf Blitzer might say, if he knew anything about what was happening. And then, on the radio, there were all these people calling in from Brooklyn and Queens and wherever saying, “Oh noes, […]

Good news, oppressed white slobs of the South! This year, you can finally escape the cruel fate of being a worthless minority by declaring your Racist Heritage on the U.S. Socialist Census. Awesome? In response to the race question on Line Nine of the form, something called the “Southern Legal Resource Center” — in no […]

Oh hey Monday was Twitter Day, the day when Republicans celebrate that time Chuck Grassley descended from Mount Sinai with One Hundred Forty Characters written on two enormous BlackBerry tablets. Let us pray. [The Hill] “Why does Harry Reid hate the unemployed? Why does he want people to starve?” Because. Just because. [RedState] An exciting […]

Back when America was awesome, black people were called “Negroes.” Sure, the title may have implied that black people were a separate sub-human species, but everyone was cool with that until the ACLU or ACORNS probably filed a lawsuit against it and America and the troops. Time for a comeback! And look, it’s on the […]

STRANGE CENSUS MARKETING CAMPAIGN STARTS TODAY: Basically what you do is fill out your census form and get rewarded with a coupon for buffalo wings: “On Monday, Census Director Robert Groves starts the nationwide campaign with an event in New York City where he is scheduled to unveil a 46-foot trailer called ‘Mail It Back.’ […]

Ken Layne reviews Infinite Jest, or some other book. [Las Vegas Weekly] Honestly, there’s really no point in reading something you’ve already been paid to vote against. [Think Progess] Convicts need their stimulus checks just as much as the next guy. How else can they afford to have The Club™ surgically installed in their pooper? […]

Something like that at least; she may have said these things before: “If we look at American history, between 1942 and 1947, the data that was collected by the census bureau was handed over to the FBI and other organizations, at the request of President Roosevelt, and that’s how the Japanese were rounded up and […]
