Run by a team of professional political journalists, MyTwoCensus.com is the non-partisan watchdog of the 2010 Census. You won't find any information here about your family tree, but it makes for interesting reading. The web site is a blog that focuses on mis-management and the government's inability to spend $13 billion of taxpayer's money in an efficient manner.
MyTwoCensus.com may not contain genealogy information today, but it describes the processes by which data is being collected for future use by your descendants who want to learn about you!
Recent articles to the site include:

Yes, this is documentation of your tax dollars at work.
As stated on the web site: "So remember this, America, MyTwoCensus is looking out for you. We want you to be counted as accurately as is humanly possible, so you can be fairly represented by your government for the next ten years, and so your billions of tax dollars will be spent wisely."
While MyTwoCensus.com is not terribly useful to genealogists, I would suggest that all taxpayers take a look at this web site. After all, it describes how your money is being spent.
