Last day to mail your Census form

By Ed O'Keefe

This is it: Unless you want some stranger to visit your home, Friday is the last day to mail your 2010 Census form back in the mail.

About 68 percent of American households have returned the questionnaire, four percentage points lower than the 2000 average, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Households that return the form after Friday are likely to be visited by census workers once they start going door-to-door between May 1 and the end of July, the Census said.

Census takers will visit a home up to six times, leaving a door hanger with their phone number if they miss you. This could prove an especially difficult process in neighborhoods with a high number of foreclosed homes and across Gulf Coast regions still affected by Hurricane Katrina.

We should get a better sense of how many temporary workers the Census Bureau plans to hire in the coming weeks. The agency could hire more than 1 million temporary workers, a fact noted by economists who've warned that the hires could have a healthy, if only temporary, impact on the nation's unemployment numbers.

This census collection is an expensive waste of time and money.

It is also meaningless as evidenced by one of Obama's answers.

President Obama put 'black' for his race when in fact we all know he is biracial.

So is he breaking a law by doing so? Should he be fined or prosecuted for his incorrect answer?

Was the misrepresentation deliberate? Is it a blatent disregard for the meaning of this whole census activity?

What is the purpose of asking for race if you can answer however you want and it doesn't matter if it is true or not?

What kind of an example is the President setting for us by this lie?

Sports, mainly by the advanced sports equipment.
Do you have enough good equipment? Of the world's most famous brands. Only two brands, jordans Nike.
If you want to have these two brands of equipment, and want to use the lowest price to buy,
Then I suggest you go to:
More and more fashionable style. More favorable, the more you want.
