Stu's 3rd to Last Page: Stu vs Census

By Stu Burguiere

Before I begin, it’s important to note that I am NOT the Census-skeptic on the show. You’ve probably heard me get into arguments with Glenn and Pat about the Census, which invariably end in me being asked why I hate the Constitution so much. While I’m no fan of dealing with the government, the Census, as currently constituted, just doesn’t bother me that much, for a couple of reasons:



1) I already gave the government almost all the information they ask for (and a lot more) on tons of other forms and paperwork.

2)The Census itself is one of the few constitutional things the government does these days.

3)The argument that they can’t ask for anything but the number of people in your house just doesn’t work for me. They’ve been asking the race question since 1790, when a lot of the Founders were still alive, and a guy named George Washington was President. If it was against the vision of the Founders, they probably wouldn’t have been asking it.

But, my willingness to play with the government didn’t end so well.

First, I never received a Census in the mail. Only a letter telling me that I might be fined if I didn’t fill out the form I didn’t receive.

Of course, they’re not really fining a quarter of the population (the 2000 return rate of the Census was only 67%) but I still wanted to cross it off my list so that Census workers wouldn’t be coming to my door every two days.

So, I called and spent 20 minutes (which felt like eternity) talking to a woman who could not understand anything I was saying. I answered all 10 of the Census questions, thanked them and hung up. I felt a swell of pride that

I had done my constitutional duty… or maybe more of a general happiness that I was done dealing with the Census for a decade.

Of course, it can’t be that simple. Shortly after, there was a knock on my door…it was a Census worker. To reiterate, I don’t have any real problem with the Census, or Census workers. But, I was completely annoyed by her telling me that I didn’t fill out the Census, and that I had to fill it out, and that I should do it right now, and that it was my responsibility…etc.

When I told her that I already filled it out over the phone, she said "You can’t fill it out over the phone."

The rest of the conversation went something like this.

Me:"Yes, you can. I did."

Her:"No. I was told that you can’t do it over the phone."

Me:"I got the information from your website."

Her:"Look, it will only take 10 minutes. Can I just come in?"

Me:"No. I’m in the middle of something—which is why I called weeks ago and filled it out over the phone."

Her:"You can’t fill it out over the phone."

Me:"Yes, you can. And, yes, I did."

Her:"Well, fine. I’m just going to keep coming back, so whatever."

I really did start the conversation by being nice, but by the end I was infuriated, especially after I was defending the Census on the air for the past six months. So, I went back to the computer to see if I was crazy…nope. The Census website states:

What if I don’t receive the form?

There are still 2010 Census forms being mailed out, so it is likely that you will receive one in the mail. If you do, please fill it out and mail it back right away. If you want to make sure you are counted, you can pick up a Be Counted form at one of our Questionnaire Assistance Centers. To find the center nearest you, please visit the Take 10 Map. If you have not received a 2010 Census form by April 12, call 1-866-872-6868 and we will either take your information over the phone or send you a form by mail. Rest assured that we are going to make sure you are counted in the 2010 Census. Beginning in May, we will be sending hundreds of thousands of census takers to every neighborhood in the country to count each housing unit that has not returned a census form.

How is it possible that I know more about the Census process than the Census worker? Could I have just filled the form out again? I guess, but then I would have filled it out twice, which might lead to inaccurate results. And what happens if you give the Census false information?

From the Census website:

What if I provide false information?

According to Title 13, Chapter 7, Subtitle 2, anyone who willfully gives an answer that is false could be fined up to $500.

What’s the lesson here?

1)Never defend the government.

2)The fact that something is listed in the Constitution doesn’t mean government can do it competently.

3)Census workers aren’t scared by two killer pugs.

 



<< Return to the September 2010

The Biden administration has weaponized the federal government against the American people. But officials have hidden most of their attacks behind a secretive and cavernous bureaucracy.

There are so many unsolved mysteries that Joe Biden and the Democrats not only refuse to answer, but in some cases appear as though they are ACTIVELY trying to cover up. Like what happened on January 6? Who is Ray Epps? Who planted the pipe bombs? What’s in Biden’s executive order on elections? What happened to the SCOTUS Dobbs leaker? What’s the COVID origin story? What’s happening with crypto, FTX, and the Central Bank Digital Currency?

These are just a few of the unsolved mysteries that we need to DEMAND answers on. On his Wednesday night special, Glenn Beck outlines a chalkboard that will leave you convinced the DOJ and FBI are LYING to the American people. The more secrets the Deep State holds, the more its power over us grows.

'I NEVER thought I'd talk about this': Was Glenn Beck's CHILLING dream actually a WARNING?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck decided to share a very unusual, extremely vivid dream he had ten years ago — a dream he thought he'd never talk about on the air until he began to see it as a warning that we should all know about.

"I never ever thought I would talk about this on the air, but I feel compelled to tell you that seasons have changed again, and it is becoming more and more apparent. You need to know what you're dealing with," Glenn began.

"If you are a long-time listener of this program, you know that one of the reasons I left New York ... was that I had a medical condition. Part of it was brought on by no REM sleep for about 10 years ... and for 10 years, I never had a dream," he explained. "However, during this period I had what could be described as a dream. I do not believe it was."

"In this 'dream' ... I am in a hallway of the White House. And I'm walking into a big room where there's a bunch of cubicles, and people look up like, 'who's walking in?' There are people behind me, but I don't know who they are yet. I just know I'm being pushed forward by them," Glenn continued. "I realize that everybody in the White House is terrified of who's ever behind me ... I glance back and I see people that are in uniforms that I've never seen before. I have seen them since, but that will be for some other time...."

"So, these guys in the uniforms are in the hallway, and one guy says, 'him, him, and him, take them out' ... and I'm the only one still sitting at the table. They go out ... then I hear three gunshots and they say, 'yeah, that happened pretty quickly for them. However, you, we're going to get to know ... because you really have no idea who you're dealing with.' And that's when one of them ... ripped off his face and he was Satan. Or, he was a demon, okay? Horrifying. Then I wake up."

Glenn went on to explain that, while the dream was so vivid and disturbing that he thought about it almost daily for well over a year, it was what happened next — during a discussion with a prominent religious leader — that really hinted his "dream" might actually have been a vision of the future and a warning.

"I will never forget it, and I will never dismiss it," Glenn said of what he learned. "I'm sharing it with you today because you must not dismiss what you're dealing with. We are not in a battle [of] politics ... our whole culture has become evil."

"You have to get to a point where you are going to choose a side. There will be no one left on the benches, and if you think you can sit it out you will end up on the wrong side. I urge you to know who you serve. This is a different time in human experience. This is not normal. None of this is normal," he warned.

'The Fedcoin is HERE': Glenn Beck reveals what the Fed was up to while YOU weren’t watching

While Americans were preparing for Thanksgiving last Wednesday afternoon, the Federal Reserve moved forward with its "Central Bank Digital Currency" program, and that wasn't the only controversial policy that was rolled out while you weren’t watching.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck reviewed the latest financial stories you may have missed over the holiday weekend, including how Biden's pause on student loan payments may be extended again and yet another sketchy Hunter Biden investment.

"You might have missed what happened Wednesday afternoon at the Fed," Glenn began. "They started their CBDC, Central Bank Digital Currency. Yes, the Fedcoin is here. Now they rolled it out on Wednesday — I mean, that was the only day they could do it, you know, because they've been denying that any of this stuff was happening. But they could only get it [launched] when no one was paying attention. So they rolled it out, and it's in its beta test now."

"By the way, India just rolled out its retail pilot program for digital rupees as well. But don't worry," he continued. "Maybe we should start having the conversation of, 'Gosh, this looks like the mark of the beast.' I mean, doesn't it? But surely it's not. Of course not. Not from the U.S. government. They never do anything underhanded or evil. Never."

BIGGER than Tiananmen Square? Here's what the China protests are REALLY about

China has been locking its citizens down for over two years under its zero-COVID policy, and it's becoming more and more clear that this isn’t just about COVID but something much more serious: slavery and control. Now it looks like many citizens have had enough. Protests are currently spreading throughout China and, unlike during the Tiananmen Square protests, the word is getting out.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck looked into the protests' "real motivations," explained how they’re different from the 1989 protests at Tiananmen Square, and predicted how these events are a "game-changer for the entire world."
