Heads Up: Tyranny Ahead. Just got US Census' NON-Every Decade "American Community Survey"Submitted by AnCapMercenary on Mon, 03/26/2012 - 14:24
over the weekend, AGAIN. If you haven't already, you'll be receiving one, too. If it's anything like last time, guess oBUSHma will be hiring 130,000+ temp 'survey' takers to physically knock on your door, and call it another 'permanent' jobs boost.
Y'all know what to do.
UPDATE: Thanks all, just changed the headline to "American Community Survey," moi mea culpa.
For more technical reference, please read through Catherine Austin Fitts' Solari.com's breakdown:
I that see a lot of you citing US codes. But, the real question is, have you actually read through it all, or are you succumbing to govt fear tactics, as intended?
For simplicity, I'll quote the relevant portion. But Catherine really breaks it down with all proper footnotes and links. Simply put, THERE IS NO PUNISHMENT.
Just another govt statist terrorists' mindgames, like everything else they do.
After researching this matter, we stumbled upon the following in an FAQ on the Census Bureau site following a statement about the potential $5,000 penalty for failing to complete the American Community Survey:
“The Census Bureau is not a prosecuting agency. Failure to provide information is not likely to result in a fine. The Census Bureau staff work to achieve cooperation and high response rates by helping the public understand that responding to the ACS is a matter of civic responsibility, and prefers to encourage participation in this manner rather than prosecution.”
Let’s be clear what has happened and the current state of census affairs means. The U.S. Constitution provides for an enumeration of the population every ten years for the purpose of determining appropriate redistricting for the House of Representatives based upon relative population changes. The Census Bureau, under questionable Constitutional authority, reads this Constitutional provision as its authority to (1) ask some additional questions about race and ethnicity, and geocode the information in government databases established and maintained by private defense contractors who have, among other things, a history of criminal prosecutions (Corporate Crime Data), including one corporation who assisted the Nazis in tracking the Jews in Eastern Europe6, (See The Data Beast—Part III) and (2) mandate that one household in forty every year answer 48 additional, highly personal questions.
The Congress passes a law that says failure of anyone to complete any federal government census may incur a relatively modest fine of up to $100. Experiencing a declining rate of response from the population and finding no other means of forcing compliance, the Census Bureau digs up criminal statutes that (1) classify any federal violation punishable by a fine as an “infraction” and (2) override any lesser statutory penalty for the “infraction” with a $5,000 fine to justify threatening randomly-selected ACS recipients with a fine of up to fifty times the fine determined by Congress for the violation. And then the Census Bureau says, in effect, “don’t worry, we can’t force the U.S. Attorney to fine you $5,000—we are just informing you of the draconian weapons in the government’s arsenal that may be available in case you don’t cooperate.”
Perhaps next we will hear that each member of the family of a dissident who litters in a National Park owes $5,000 to the government for this “infraction,” based upon 18 U.S.C. §§ 3559 and 3571. Or that the government has decided to address the massive budget deficits from bailing out the likes of Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan Chase by fining every household $5,000 for a little-known and rarely-enforced Federal offense.
If nothing else, the Census Bureau has succeeded in reminding us why the wise founders of this country saw fit to severely limit the rights of the federal government and vest in the states authority to make all laws in matters that are not expressly reserved to the federal government in the Constitution. And in alerting us to the danger of the Sentencing Reform Act of 1984 to those who might dare to incur the wrath of the New World Order.
Do you want the largest defense contractors in the world to have precise geographic data for you and your family that can be aggregated with all the data the federal government has accessible, including the digital health care records which will be required with “health reform?”
