Agenda 21

Posted: Tuesday, Oct 8th, 2013




Editor,

George Orewll’s :1984” has arrived!

I have just received a communication from the U. S. Census Bureau with a 28 page survey form that they say I am required to fill out as part of the American Community Survey. Now I know that the Constitution (remember that inconvenient document?) requires the government to enumerate the citizens of each state every 10 years to determine the citizens of each state every 10 years to determine how many representatives each state has in the U. S. House of Representatives, but I don’t see any requirement in that document to collect information on our annual income, how many times we have been married, whether we have flush toilets in our home, what our annual mortgage payments are, what our annual homeowners insurance policy costs, how many vehicles we own, if we have Internet access or whether we worked last week – just a few of the outrageously intrusive questions on this survey.

I could go on, but space prohibits. If you have ever received this thing, you know.

They say this information helps communities plan for hospitals, schools, highways. How does information on my personal marital status help with those plans? U.N. Agenda 21 ring a bell?

Editor’s Note:

Concerns of this survey hit the airways some time ago and was aired on both the Salt Lake City news programs and on Bill O’Reilly on Fox News. The answer was citizens HAD to answer the survey.
