Who Would You Rather See Do The 2010 Census? ACORN or The U.S. Post Office?

ACORN and the U.S. Census

 July 6, 2009

By Matthew Vadum

Remember the Obama administration lying about ACORN’s involvement in the 2010 Census?

After the Census Bureau responded to a Freedom of Information Act request, Judicial Watch reported that

…the Obama Commerce Department downplayed ACORN’s participation in the Census, and labeled “baseless” the notion that ACORN would be involved in any Census count…[but]…offered ACORN the opportunity to “recruit Census workers” who would participate in the count. Moreover, as an “executive level” partner, ACORN has the ability to “organize and/or serve as a member on a Complete Count Committee,” which, according to Census documents, helps “develop and implement locally based outreach and recruitment campaigns.”

According to its application ACORN also signed up to: “Encourage employees and constituents to complete and mail their questionnaire; identify job candidates and/or distribute and display recruiting materials; appoint a liaison to work with the Census Bureau; provide space for Be Counted sites and/or Questionnaire Assistance Centers; sponsor community events to promote participation in the 2010 Census,” among 18 requested areas of responsibility. The documents also show the decision to add ACORN as a partner occurred in February, long after the January 15th Census partnership application deadline. (One Census official had bet “it was under Bush.”)

Then last week the government reported that the layoff of Census workers comprised the bulk of the jobs just lost in the federal government: “Employment in federal government fell by 49,000 in June, largely due to the layoff of workers temporarily hired to prepare for Census 2010.”

What’s wrong with this picture? The federal government isn’t exactly on an austerity binge right now.

Given that the Obama administration lied about ACORN’s involvement in the Census, it might be lying now about the laid off workers being temporary employees. Is the way being cleared for ACORN workers to be hired?

If the administration hadn’t tried to move oversight of the Census into the White House and then lied about ACORN’s high-level participation in planning for the 2010 Census, the news of the layoffs would not have caught my attention.

However, it did attempt the Census power play and lie about ACORN’s involvement in the Census, so reasonable observers have every reason to be suspicious.

Former ACORN organizer Gregory Hall recently warned in a Washington Examiner op-ed about the dangers of letting ACORN participate in the Census:

There is no reason to believe the problems of staff mistreatment or systematic fraud will be any different if and when the federal government asks ACORN to take its show on the road to households across the country.

Now I give to you for your consideration this video.  Imagine a “freshman” Congressman having this novel idea:

 

 

 

End note:

The U.S. Post Office is a Federal Entity.

We already have thousands of postal workers that go “door to door” every day.

Those with P.O. Boxes can go to their Main Post Office to fill out their census sheet.

A plausible idea; with some fine tuning….might work.

 

 

WHO would you rather see at your door America?

 

 

 

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!
