Subject: Fwd: GN: Census workers to verify addresses

Please pass this far and wide. They plan on entering onto your property, walking up to your front door, and taking a GPS reading. One individual, to whom I sent this, responded thusly: "Every time I think of them recording a GPS marking of my front door, I think of those smart bombs that went into Saddam's front door, and the front doors of a few select addresses in Baghdad. With these GPS markings, they won't have to send the Brown Shirts out to bring us in, they can just take us out at will. I think I'll barricade my driveway."
Considering that we have a Marxist in the Oval Office, considering the recent reports out of Home Land Security labeling anyone who opposes Marxist Obama's policies as right wing terrorists, the response I received is more than a little unsettling. It puts a whole new meaning on "safe in your own home."
Please pass this far and wide.
My suggestion: If you see them coming, do not let them on your property. If there is any way to keep them off, do so. Be creative.

With the current occupant in the White House taking over the Census Bureau we can be sure that nothing good can result with the information acquired. He has deceived us once (actually, more than that) and he will continue to deceive us until his Alinsky objectives are met. Personally, my biggest fear is that he will use this information to incorporate us into his global agenda and we will all wake up under that blue rag flying over the United Nations...been warning you about this for some time! - Norman E.

Census Workers to Verify Addresses in the U.S.

First Major 2010 Census Operation to Employ 140,000

The Census Bureau will launch a massive operation on March 30 to verify and update more than 145 million addresses as it prepares to conduct the 2010 Census.

Nationwide, more than 140,000 census workers will participate in the address canvassing operation, a critically important first step in assuring that every housing unit receives a census questionnaire in March 2010. All information is kept confidential. The countdown to the 2010 Census is officially one year out on April 1.

“A complete and accurate address list is the cornerstone of a successful census,” said Tom Mesenbourg, acting director of the U.S. Census Bureau. “Building on the achievements of the 2000 Census, we have been testing and preparing for the 2010 count all decade, and we’re ready to fulfill our constitutional mandate to count everyone living in the United States.”

The first publicly visible activity of the 2010 Census is ahead of schedule. Address canvassing kicks off a week earlier than originally planned and should conclude by mid-July. The operation will use new hand-held computers equipped with GPS to increase geographic accuracy. The ability to capture GPS coordinates for most of the nation’s housing units will greatly reduce the number of geographic coding errors caused by using paper maps in previous counts.

“The primary goal of the census is to count everyone once, only once, and in the right place,” Mesenbourg said. “Because the census is used for reapportioning seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and the distribution of more than $300 billion in federal dollars every year to state and local governments, it’s essential to get this first step right.”

Over the last several years, the Census Bureau has been actively working on updating its geographic databases and master address files. From implementing the Local Update of Census Address program where more than 11,500 tribal, state and local governments participated in a review of the Census Bureau’s address list for their area, to increasing the precision of the GPS mapping, many advances have been made to compile the most comprehensive listing of addresses in the nation.

The address canvassing operation will be conducted out of 151 local census offices across the U.S, with most offices beginning on April 6. In most cases, census workers will knock on doors to verify addresses and inquire about additional living quarters on the premises. This is the first census to include group quarters (such as dormitories, group homes, prisons and homeless shelters) in the address canvassing operation, which should improve both the accuracy and coverage of the final count.

There will be one final opportunity to add new home construction in early 2010 prior to the mailing of the census questionnaires.

Census workers can be identified by the official Census Bureau badge they carry. During the address canvassing operation, census workers may ask to verify a housing structure’s address and whether there are additional living quarters on the property.

2010 Census workers will never ask for bank or social security information. All census information collected, including addresses, are confidential and protected by law. By law, the Census Bureau cannot share respondents’ answers with the FBI, the IRS, CIA, Welfare, Immigration, or any other government agency. No court of law or law enforcement agency can find out respondents’ answers. All Census Bureau employees — including temporary employees — take an oath for life to keep census information confidential. Any violation of that oath is punishable by a fine of up to $250,000 and five years in prison.

Okay, say they have my address. What does that mean. Why do the need to come to my house and ask all those invasive questions? During the last census I received some long form piece of junk. I filled out the heading and returned it. Never put pen to the rest of the crap. I plan to do the same thing this time around.
Threaten me and they won't like the answer, enclose in a full metal jacket.
Are you reading this Janet? Mulkasy? Holder?
Is that premeditated? Who cares.
