I think the census, might be the most key reason Democrats *have* to win this election, more than the presidency or the supreme court (maybe not more than the Senate) but that census data, and the party in power, will control redistricting lines, and their gerrymandering abilities. (Unless I'm mistaken for some reason) and if the democrats can get some of these 40% R / 60% D - districts that go R, to flip, then it may be possible to lock out the R party for at least the next decade, maybe longer.

A win here would be huge.

"Trump's attempts to X have been halted"

That's how we wish it could be.

Let's be serious. Trump ain't the problem His advisers and his assistants and his aids are the problem. He's not exactly the kind of thing that will go away overnight.

It has been strange. My retired father decided to get a part time gig as a census worker just to keep himself busy. Quarentine went in effect while he was at training. He has had work. It has been spotty. Was very quiet for the last couple weeks, and he just got a ton of work for this week.
He, his boss, nobody seems to know what is happening. But shiat is coming down from on high.

Senators, judges, and congressmen blatantly ignoring the constitution and placing party>country aren't advisors and assistants. Mitch and the Koch's don't give two shiats what trump does as long as he deflects attention away from what they're doing, they're happy.

It's 9 months into the year we are supposed to take a census. I really don't feel like this is a win in goddam 2020

I think it tends to be white people who do the whole "gitoffamahpropertah!" shotgun thing.

My family did the census online months ago.. but they do need to look for the people who didn't do that.

To be fair, "woe" seems very appropriate, given how this clusterf*ck of a year has gone.

they counted the 'right' people.    rich turds and their GOP minions don't like the little people and don't like large turnouts at vote time because that hurts their chances of taking public office.


they are the minority rich and Democracy is about rule by the Majority.

The Census is using iPhones with Census-specific apps on them for this one. Last time they were still using #2 pencils and paper forms. So it's totally different this year. No meetings because of covid-19, and rather than being assigned specific Census tract or tracts to work until done, cases are being assigned daily based on your time availability and location.

I've had cases assigned that at some point need to be done by visiting a property manager during business hours but keep getting assigned to me on nights and weekends, until I expressly tell my supervisor. But this wasn't really covered in the training.

Also, where I live there are huge numbers of century-old homes that used to be for the upper middle class but have been converted into 3-unit rental apartments. The owners don't live there, of course, so somebody needs to be working these cases during business hours from the city tax records office to find all the uncompleted cases from the landlord files.

janzee: Does he have to shiat on everything?


Yes.
If he didn't, people would have time to focus on any particular heinous deed. If he does several a day, it overwhelms all the ones he did last week. Or last month. Or last year. Have we heard anything lately about the missing children they took away from their parents? For having the audacity to flee a country we had a hand in farking up?

I've spoken with people who have just received their mail in questionnaire this week.  WTF?
