The census person who came through here a few weeks ago was a young black girl who just stood on the sidewalks out front of the houses. She'd stop in front of the house .. on the side walk ... punch something into her little box ... then move to the next house. No questions asked ... no knocking on doors .... nothing.
I wondered at the time how she could possibly know how many people lived in the house, etc.... I'm thinking she fudged the numbers and just put the generic typical '4' for every house. But that's just a guess.
(wonder if she was an ACORN chickeepoo? )

STill reading through everyone comments, but I've been doing some research on this of my own. I'm come to the conclusion that the United Nations is behind the GPS door tagging garbage. Check this out! U.N. Expert Group Meeting Contemporary Practices in Census Mapping and
Use of Geographical Information Systems
In other news, I called the sheriff deputy that came out here last night. He wasn't in so I left him a message, but I asked him to call me back just to let me know if I was within my constitutional rights not to let that guy on the property. The policeman that answered the phone at the cop shop said, "Oh yea, I heard about that last night and thought it was interesting. I had to leave before hearing how it turned out." He sounded like he was with us on this one. Sometimes I'm sooooo happy to live in a place where my policemen are not Nazis and everyone knows your name. I do know most of the police on a friend or aquantance level.

1. What if you simply were not home when this occurred?
This would all be a moot point.
If I weren't home, he would have been bitten upon entering my yard.
2. You might be more concerned about the info avail by your Computer IP address.
It's the principle of it. I have the choice to get on the internet and have my IP address recorded.
3. Check out Google Earth. You could probably find a picture of your house.
Nope. Just a picture from high up and it's black and white.
4. The blow-by-blow account was hilarious. And as mentioned by others, the timeline suspect. You interchanged the terms Police and Sheriff. They are clearly two separate agencies with diverse jurasdiction.
Where I live, all of the city police are deputized to be able to respond to calls in the county, AND they share the same building, which is also the jail, so you're wrong here.
5. You made several attempts to become partisan. ( Obama and Michael Moore references.) Diminishes objectivity.
Sorry, the guy looks like Michael Moore. Think of someone else that looks like him and plug that name in instead. I don't care who it is, they just have to look like him. And the Obama administration is the one that, just a few weeks ago, said that this GPS door tagging needs to be done. I'm way beyond Obama and Bush bashing though. They're both puppets. Rahm-the-antichrist-Emmanuel, now that guy is creepy.
In the future event of a "crisis", I highly suggest you prioritize protecting the children you say were in the house rather than striving to be a "live" on-line internet reporter.
Yeah, well, if the swat team is outside the door, I just might do that.
By the way, I'd sure hate to be your local Pizza delivery boy. If you don't shoot them in the face first, I at least hope you're a big tipper.
I'm not that lazy. I pick up my own pizzas. Why waste money tipping a delivery boy when I can do the work myself?
And why is that I have a feeling you're a card carrying member of Acorn?

a census is in my opinion.
I like RP Girl standing up to them, but I like beating them at their own game too. To each their own.
More to come on beating them at their own game! You'd be amazed at the things you can do!

I don't understand this attitude. If you're worried about the census guy being a phony then why not just take his info and call his office to confirm things?
If we're going to live in a modern society aren't we going to have to participate in gov. records, census?
Why act hostile for no reason, and invent problems? Should we expect a modern government that we elected to not take a census or keep records?
But you should check things out of course before letting people on your property, I agree.
