Census Workers “Painting” Every Door In America With GPS Location?

                                      Marking Every Door In America

Well, now we know why ACORN got 5 Billion$ from the Stimulus Bill, and why the White House took control of the US Census Bureau. A perfect excuse to start tagging homes in America for the next Census scheduled for 2010, though it directly violates Sec. 223, Title 13, U.S. Code, Chapter 7, Subtitle 2 which provides the Fed NO authority to GPS paint your front door. It is in direct violation of the Constitution and no one is doing anything to stop it.

ACORN signed on as a national partner with the U.S. Census Bureau in February 2009 to assist with the recruitment of the 1.4 million temporary workers needed to go door-to-door to count every person in the United States — currently believed to be more than 306 million people. But the count doesn’t take place until 2010. This is April 2009.

No imagination is required to think up a whole laundry list of evil that could be done with a nationwide GPS grid of coordinate’s markers painted on every private home across the country. But I was having trouble thinking up one good reason for it, even one legitimate use that would justify what must be a very expensive undertaking.

According to one of the Census workers, who spoke with me on condition of anonymity, they must GPS mark the coordinates “within 40 ft of every front door” in America and they are supposed to complete that mission nation wide, within 90 days, by the end of July 2009.

The workers were not told why they were GPS marking every front door. But a supervisor is sent out to follow them door-to-door, to make certain that no door is left unmarked. Every door will be marked by one employee, and then checked by a follow-up supervisor.

So, I had to ask, why?

Why does the Obama administration need or want the latitude and longitude coordinates for every home in America? Why the rush to GPS paint every home in the next 90 days? Why must the marker be within 40 ft of every front door? For what possible purpose does the Fed need GPS coordinates for every home, and under what authority do they have the right? Census workers, whom I asked, had the same holy-crap look on their faces that I had by then.

Best I can tell, the Fed has NO authority whatsoever, to paint the front door of every private residence in America. Still, that is exactly what they are doing. Now, the trillion dollar question is, why?”

My notes:

We recently had a Census worker at our door:

They ONLY asked our daughter if she lived here…….THAT IS IT!

1.  Will numbers be “fudged” to adjust districting to their liking?

2.   What is the REASON for the Census worker undertaking to mark EVERY door in America with GPS location markers?

Do we live in a Banana Republic, Russia or Venezuela?

I thought this was America!

  1. The GPS was not set up by the Obama administration.

    The Census Bureau has been working on the handheld computers with GPS since 2001.

    They have always marked the location of houses on maps. GPS is more efficient. So much so, that the 90 days has become 14 days. Thousands of people only worked 2 weeks doing a job that was forecasted to take until mid July.

    The GPS is to help future enumerators in 2010 find the location of hard to locate houses for follow up.

    The first phase was to confirm addresses for the mailing in 2010. They are NOT counting people.

    A supervisor does not check every house. A QC Lister spot checks about 20%.

    1. To stand within 40 feet of my abode and “paint” my front door with GPS location gives me an eerie “Nanny” government feel to things.

    2. What about apartment buildings? Do they “Paint” every door there?

    3. What about those that basically live in RV’s. Some sell their possessions and basically live in RV parks. Will the RV parks be “painted”?

    4. Will they “paint” the homeless? The front doors of “soup kitchens”?

    5. What about mobile homes? After all they are “mobile”?

    6. And the BIGGEST question of all is WHY? I don’t believe or trust the government’s answer as you put it: The GPS is to help future enumerators in 2010 find the location of hard to locate houses for follow up.

    The sad part of all of this is I don’t trust my own government.

  2. About 3 weeks ago a census worker was in my front yard with a handheld “device” tapping away. I opened the door and asked if I could help him. All he asked of me, “was this a single family home”, that’s it. We are registered gun owners and active in our parish and had a child attend 13 years of Catholic school.

    This also happened to my parents. My father is an AF veteran and my mother has two guns registered. No questions were asked because my parents got to the door after the worker left.

    There’s something rotten in the state of Denmark, my friends.

    Great article BTW.

  3. It occurs to me that getting GPS coordinates for every registered dwelling is that it allows government workers who do not read and speak english to readily find a particular dwelling. Why hire non-english personnel? Non-Americans will not have any patriotic feelings for your right to be left peaceably alone.

  4. I’m sure that they did my door when I wasn’t at home, but I will be looking into sueing those responsible. THEY HAVE NO FRIGGIN RIGHT!

  5. Response from Romanticpoet:

    I am editing this comment for spelling and what my thoughts are in brackets [].>

    I’m actually one of those “supervisors” you mentioned, though we’re not really supervisors. We’re just quality control to make sure the previous lister did i[sp] right. It’s just to verify for accuracy.

    Now to answer your questions:

    1. To stand within 40 feet of my abode and “paint” my front door with GPS location gives me an eerie “Nanny” government feel to things.

    -That’s just because you’re paranoid…[paranoid? No I have my eyes open. I love the way the Obama supporters like to use the word "paranoid"......]

    2. What about apartment buildings? Do they “Paint” every door there?

    -We only need to map spot the first apartment. If people need to find a particular apartment, the managers usually have maps or staff of the complex could show them where to go. [Why only "map" the first apartment? What if there are only three apartments or several apartments in several buildings? Some don't even have "live in" managers or daily staff. Plus, people move in and out of apartments all the time; (some in the dead of the night) . Some even give fictitious forwarding addresses. So how to you get an accurate count?]

    3. What about those that basically live in RV’s. Some sell their possessions and basically live in RV parks. Will the RV parks be “painted”?

    -Yup. That’s the next phase of the project. [Next phase? HOW many phases are there?]

    4. Will they “paint” the homeless? The front doors of “soup kitchens”?

    -Again, next phase of the project. [Same response I gave in #3]

    5. What about mobile homes? After all they are “mobile”?

    -This we are doing now. Even if the mobile home leaves, the lot and utility hookups are still there, and someone else may live there next year if the person living there now moves their home. [So you are "mapping" even empty lots? What are you doing with people that own tracts of land? Some have utility poles for irrigation.]

    6. And the BIGGEST question of all is WHY? I don’t believe or trust the government’s answer as you put it: The GPS is to help future enumerators in 2010 find the location of hard to locate houses for follow up.

    -Well that’s the exact reason. Late in this year or early next year the surveys will be mailed to get census data. If census bureau doesn’t recieve one from a particular address, then the map spot will help the person[who ACORN?] who will know[sp] on the door to get the information.

    Now I know that you feel paranoid [again the use of this word] about someone getting information about you, but it’s for a very important reason. I mean, this was created by Ben Franklin back in 1790. Using this data, new representative slots will be opened for states as well as electoral votes. [Isn’t this the whole goal of Obama? To add “power” to the Democratic Party? How will America actually know this is an accurate count? After all ACORN will be the majority of census taking and Americans know what they did during the voter registration drives…..] It also applies to tax dollars assigned. If one city is growing extremely rapidly, while another is shrinking, using the data from the cencus[sp]reps will know to give more tax dollars to the growing city for things like roads and schools.

    Romanticpoet end note:

    My daughter did say that the “mapper” that came to the front door of my abode asked her if the address was correct…….We have 911 numbers on our house 6″ tall, plus numbers on our mailbox, PLUS we live on a certain road. The “mapper” still had to ask if our address was correct? Why did they come to my door AT ALL if they were just “spot mapping”?

    It still has the feel of a Nanny State ; especially since it is being controlled by the WHITE HOUSE.

    Not being paranoid……being a realist.

  6. No, you are simply another bat-shit paranoid winger freaking out because your little world is being questioned. We do the census every 10 years, get over it. According to the Census Bureau, questions on race have been asked since 1790; home language since 1890; rent since 1880; and income since 1940. The Census Bureau has asked what kind of heating fuel heats Americans’ homes since 1940. Of course this one is different because that popular black man is President. We do the census every 10 years, get over it. It’s sad the Republican party has sunk so low as to give credence to this kind of paranoia. Reagan would be rolling in his grave along with Goldwater.

  7. Yep, RP, paranoid seems to describe you pretty well.

    Why would you assume census workers are Obama supporters, anyway? I took the test to work for the census before the election. The hand-held GPS computers were designed and tested years ago and NOT by the Obama administration.

    Why would you jump to all of these silly conclusions without ever fact checking? You realize, as the previous poster noted, that the census has been around since 1790 and is a fundamental part of the Constitution of the USA, right?

    So, yes, paranoid is what you are. You’re also dangerous. Wing-nuts like yourself are what got our fellow citizen and my co-worker, Bill Sparkman, killed. You should be ashamed of yourself for spreading fear and misinformation around with total disregard for the facts.

  8. I didn’t answer in 2000, I won’t answer in 2010.

    If they want to count, they can sit at the curb and count as I go in or come out of the house.

    All they need to know is how many people, and they will have to figure that out the old fashioned way 1..2..3..4..5..(I don’t know how smart these people are, so I can’t say how far they can count).

    Gosh, the twins will confuse them.

  9. Sheesh! Lose the tin foil hats, will ya?

    (A) Obama DID NOT “take over” the census and (B) the GPS, planned during the Bush years, did not work. The data was corrupted and could not be used for this year’s census.

    Do any of you realize that anyone can probably already go to google maps, type in your address and see a closeup of your front door? Heck, the truth is already out there.

    ==========================

    (A) “The data was corrupted and could not be used for this year’s census”: And YOU know this HOW? They stood in the streets and painted every door THIS YEAR.

    (B) “Do any of you realize that anyone can probably already go to google maps, type in your address and see a closeup of your front door?” IF THIS WERE TRUE; WHY did the government even ATTEMPT to GPS every door?

    Did you know they were GPSing even vacant lots if a power pole or any semblance of water was there? WHY?

    Question with boldness.

    Speak without fear.
