You don't have to belong to one of those groups for that.

The first question for all of the "hard to count" should be, are you in this country legally?

I'll obey the unconstutional Federal Regulation that says we need to answer all the questions on the census if... The Government starts to follow its own laws and starts rounding up and sending back all the illegal immigrants.

the notice in the mail that said my family's census would be arriving a couple of weeks. Wasteful spending?

I told them everything! I told them: my age, height, weight, race, hair color, how many guns I own, how much ammunition, if I own any silver/gold, shoe size, sexual orientation, food I eat, car I drive, how much I make, how much I spend, who I voted for, my favorite color etc etc, etc. I also confirmed that I know nothing about our national debt and that the Federal Reserve is buying most of it. I told them I love Federal Reserve notes most of all and since the interest rates are so low I've been gambling with my saving to try and make some money. Hahaha! NOT!

Already counted since you know exactly how many there are? so it's just the illegals we need to count

If you really drive home the point of how much money it could be worth, aren't you creating an incentive to overcount? I still say we don't have a chance in this contest. Chicago will count more dead people than we could posibly ceate. After, most of those Chicago cen=metary residents still vote Democratic. Bill G.

So lets see if I understand this correctly. Cynde is acknowledging that she knows that someone is an illegal alien, is in this country illegally, which is a violation of federal law, and she will not notify authorities. This would make her an accessory to a felony and would subject her to prison time. This would be the same as me knowing someone who robbed a bank, but I did not tell the cops, but when they catch him, and he tells them that I knew about it but did not call the cops to report it, I will also face prison time. What is the difference ?
