Obama Weaponizes Census Bureau for Minorities
So I got a letter in the mail today - very official - from the US Government, Bureau of Census. When I opened it, it said in bold print PAST DUE NOTICE, and proceeded to tell me that I had to log into the government system and participate in the 2015 annual survey of entrepreneurs - and that I had to participate in it BY LAW. Then they cite the laws covering my required participation. They want me to give them all kinds of very confidential information, and they want to THREATEN ME into doing it.
What the hell?
I read the small print on this notice, and it says that they are doing this in conjuntion with the Minority Business Development Agency and that the information they collect is being used "...in undertaking or promoting the establishment and successful operation of minority business enterprises." So in other words, they want to know all about my business so they can tell me I have to use more minority service providers? Or tell me I have to hire more minorities? What has Obama done? Turned the the Census Bureau into a weapon to jam minority businesses down my throat? Find out if I'm complying with all his views on hiring and who gets contracts from my company? And so now I have to help minorities BY LAW? What the hell is going on here?
And to tell me that I have to participate in this by law? And that my participation is "PAST DUE"? So I tried to log in just to enter some information like "Go to hell Government snoopers!" and of course, the login they provided failed. CLASSIC. Just like ObamaCare, it don't work!
The bottom line is that Obama has turned a statistics agency, created to track various data about our population in a non-biased way, into a VERY biased agency now on a warpath to dictate how we operate our businesses and which is keeping track of who we hire and who we use as vendors...and its saying that participation in this is mandatory under the law. It's now an agency that is basically all for the benefit of minorities. Has nothing to do with helping my business, which frankly could have used a little more help in past years. Who is looking out for me as a business owner in Washington DC? It sure isn't anyone in this administration! Where is the Bureau of Help for Business Owners Who Take All the Risk and Pay Themselves Last? I guess according to Obama, I didn't create anything without his help and therefore, I need to pay more in taxes, right? I think the quote was "If you've created a big successful business...you didn't do that!" I didn't? I don't remember you being there late nights helping me. I don't remember ANY government agency being there to help me start the business or help it grow. I only remember the government being there to tell me that I had to pay them something.
Obama. What an a**hole.
