Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

I plan to refuse, of course. And yes, the resistance will be blogged! I am a Citizen, not a Subject, and Dear Leader needs to be taught the difference.
Let's face it, me getting this survey from the Census Bureau is no more "random" than Lois Lerner's jihad against conservative non-profit groups. The Obama Administration is working overtime to harass their enemies, and intrusive demands for intimate details of my life is indeed government harassment.
Well guess what, I'm not going to help them build a dossier on me.
It's none of any bureaucrat's business how many toilets I have in my house.
The sole provision for data collection defined in our Constitution is for an enumeration of persons.
Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers. … The actual Enumeration shall be made within three Years after the first Meeting of the Congress of the United States, and within every subsequent Term of ten Years, in such Manner as they shall by Law direct.
The Founding Fathers weren't busybodies. They believed in individual liberty, and would never have countenanced digging into the personal lives of their fellow citizens no matter what the supposed benefit might be.
Periodically counting heads is necessary to ensure proportional representation. Counting toilets is not.
And, as any schoolkid ought to be able to tell you, with the Fourth Amendment they explicitly protected us from intrusive government snooping:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated.
So there is no Constitutional basis for the government demanding to know when I leave for work, what I eat for breakfast, or how long it takes my daughter to get to school. Let alone any of the other minutiae about disabilities, cost of utilities, computer and internet usage patterns, and how many burners are on my stove.
Then there's the question about fertility. Seriously? They wanna know if I'm pregnant? Curiously they don't ask how many abortions we've had. Oh, right, that's private information. Emanations of Penumbras dontcha know.
After that, they want to know whether or not I'm a citizen. But there's no box for "illegal alien." Gee, I wonder why!
And finally, as for any of their balkanized race and ethnicity questions, a pox on their quota-mongering houses. My race is American. That's all they need to know. And it's what I put on the 2010 census form. You know, the one that's (marginally) Constitutional.
Sadly, most sheeple will blindly follow orders and send the intimate details of their personal lives to Obama's storm troopers. But not me. I found this guy, who gives some pretty detailed information on how to politely and legally resist the Inquisition. I won't go quietly into that dark night!
Wish me luck. I'll keep you guys posted. Especially if I need bail money.Wolverines!
