    The Republican-Russian wrecking-ball fascist racist racket…a violent smash-and-grab affair leaving a trail of American corpses, broken families and nation, suffering, and tears.

    Traitor-'n-Thief Toxic Trump is a compromised Russian asset who puts his own personal interests–legal, financial, and egotistical–ahead of the national interest in both domestic and foreign policy. A clear and present danger to himself and others. U.S. #1 national security threat sits in the Oval.

    Republicans: Like to play dumb, demonstrating just how really, REALLY dumb they are. Complicity renders them likewise a clear and present danger to themselves, others, the nation. Decades of programming from right-wing media, demagogues, plutocrats, religious grifters, and seedy politicians created a mindless, fascist Republican cult, too hyper-partisan to place national interest over ignorant tribalism. GOP chained themselves to the rabid, ravenous beast of willful ignorance consuming them, which they created, nourished, and exploited.

    I'm a 37yr old American, I have never in my life received a knock on the door or a piece of mail from the US Census Bureau.

    I assume it's up to me to reach out to them, but if that's true, what is this video even about?

    2:55 – Making up immigrant numbers?! And y'all say voting won't be a hoax? Shame on all of you. Thanks.

    If Biden wins. Biden needs to do the Census again. Because Trump's incompetence shows volumes. Trump is destroying our institutions. The Post Office is a good example.

    The people at the Trump administration need to be held accountable for their deleriction of duty. If some of them go to prison, that will deter somebody in the future from act in an unlawful manner.

    Who would trust this administration with census data?
    The census I saw basically only cared about your heritage and family structure. Here in CA there were 3 separate questions attempting to identify if you identify as having Latino/Latinx/south American/Caribbean heritage.
    If you are white..it was 1 question, if you are black 1 question, Asian you got 1 question…..how does that work?
    Why would they need that data?

    I’ve had my census taken three times this year and two of them were taken by the same guy. When I told him I recognized him and confronted him about coming out again, he tried to deny it and then finally said you caught me and said he would not come back.

    Quick!, what historical figure said, governments in perplexity,

    Soooooo…will the 2020 census effect the vote? Thank you Chris Hayes.

    Looks like the american people do not trust the government.

    What difference does it make? The census workers are still getting paid so i highly doubt they give the slighest fk.

    Well if your city isn’t funded properly you will all feel it. Your roads will be worse and schools will have to close for lack of funding.

  26. Avatar

    They want it that way. So when your state or city needs help there will be no funds and that’s what they want. The kids won’t have food at their schools.

    The ramifications of 2020 will be felt for decades to come, from the failed leadership of Donald Trump to the pandemic of covid-19 and everything in between.

    I agree that the census should be readministered after the pandemic is resolved

    The president knows what Mussolini knew: Some audiences crave images that offer false reassurance and over-the-top displays of power.

    And get ppl to redo the census in 2022?

    It's unbelievable that in a supposedly advanced country like the USA nothing works properly, the census, the elections, the post office, the health system, the education, the military, etc. Most Banana republics do a better job.

    I agree with the census bureau, and the blame is on them..they are'nt doing their best to assist individuals with the census, and you can rarely get anybody on line.
    And not one numerator, has tried to contact people, in particular areas.
    This man is lieing.
