Census worker won’t take no for answer

Census worker won’t take no for answer

The first few requests were tolerable. A Census Bureau worker would knock on John and Beverly Scott’s door and ask them to fill out an American Community Survey. The McKinley Park couple would politely decline.

But as the days passed, the visits became more frequent and the requests more urgent.

Some evenings, the doorbell would ring at dinnertime, then again at 10 p.m.

“I’m generally a nice guy. I didn’t want to shut the door in her face,” John Scott said. “I said, ‘I’m not going to answer your questions.’ She kept saying, ‘You’ve got to, you’ve got to.’ I shut the door, and she kept ringing the doorbell and tapping on the window.”

It isn’t that the Scotts are anti-government or are philosophically opposed to the census. The couple filled out their decennial form last year, answering every question.

But they’re not too keen on the American Community Survey, a more in-depth, ongoing questionnaire the Census Bureau conducts to compile information on area demographics, consumer patterns and economic issues.

In particular, the Scotts did not want to answer questions they found too personal, such as inquiries about their income, when they left for work and their health.

The Puppetmasters Behind the Military Action in Libya ( Soros – Who else? )

The Puppetmasters Behind the Military Action in Libya ( Soros – Who else? )
The New American ^ | March 25th | Raven Clabough
Posted on Friday, April 01, 2011 3:02:31 PM by Halfmanhalfamazing

President Obama’s actions in Libya were already suspicious for a number of reasons. First, during Obama’s presidential campaign, he asserted that his priority was to get America out of the two wars it was already fighting. Second, Obama was a staunch critic of the Bush administration for unconstitutionally embarking on a war without congressional approval — an action of which President Obama is now guilty. Finally, as the economy is teetering on collapse, one would assume the last thing the President would want is to have to fund a third war.

And yet here we are. However, once we delve into some of the key players behind the President’s ultimate decision to embark on military action in Libya, things become clearer, and more frustrating.

President Obama cited the “Responsibility to Protect” doctrine as a justification for bombing Libya. The initiative is a doctrine of the Global Centre for the Responsibility to Protect. The American Thinker explains:

The Trump Effect on Birtherism (Dave compares birthers to truthers, Trump to Ron Paul)

The Trump Effect on Birtherism (Dave compares birthers to truthers, Trump to Ron Paul)
Slate ^ | April 1, 2011 | David Weigel
Posted on Friday, April 01, 2011 3:12:14 PM by 2ndDivisionVet

Chris Barron, chairman of GOProud, writes at length about Donald Trump’s newfound obsession with Barack Obama’s citizenship. You’ll recall that GOProud was at least partly responsible for Trump’s buzzy appearance at CPAC; the tycoon/pundit/punchline’s slow descent into birtherism had been raising questions about the gay group.

“Let me be 100% clear – I am not a birther. I have never said I don’t believe Barack Obama was born in this country. Quite honestly, I haven’t spent much time worrying about or thinking about this issue, because I just don’t care about it. But there are a lot of issues that I don’t particularly care about that lots of other people do (take soccer for instance, for whatever reasons billions of people around the globe love it, I couldn’t give a rats ass about it).

On the question of Barack Obama’s birth certificate, while its not an issue I care about, clearly there are large segments of the population – and the Republican primary electorate in particular – that do care about this issue. Just because I don’t care about the issue or just because the press has decided that the issue is ‘off limits’ doesn’t mean that a potential Presidential candidate can’t legitimately raise questions about the issue.

I do believe that Mr. Trump’s approach to this issue, like his approach to almost every issue he has spoken on, has been a “common sense” approach. If there are those who question President Obama’s birthplace, then why not just produce the birth certificate (not the certificate of live birth – there is a difference) and be done with it? To me, that sounds pretty common sense.”

What do Barack Obama and Muammar Gaddafi have in common? If you guessed that they’re both Muslims, go to the front of the Tea Party.

Their real commonality is that neither got invited to Prince William’s and Kate Middleton’s royal wedding.

I can understand Ghaddafi’s exclusion – probably bad form to have a guy in your party who’s killing his own people. Besides, his wardrobe would clash with anything they’d wear.

Plus he’s pretty busy right now defying NATO and Anderson Cooper and most likely couldn’t make it anyway.

But what’s with the President of the United States? He’s in the rejected category

As the mad bombers at NATO engage in a public relations stunt in response to the fallout from the slaughter of innocent Libyan civilians, here in the United States a few dignified members of Congress are attempting to put a halt to the illegal war.

We can handle the truth.

It seems that former Speaker of the House and Chair of the Democratic National Convention, Nancy Pelosi, might have made a mistake similar to that made by Colonel Nathan R. Jessup (Jack Nicholson) in the movie “A Few Good Men”.

Ratings Down for Fox, Bill O’Reilly, Glenn Beck

Ratings Down for Fox, Bill O’Reilly, Glenn Beck (Maddow UP, CNN also UP)
Opposing Views.com ^ | 3/31/11 | Mark Berman
Posted on Friday, April 01, 2011 10:52:05 AM by SoFloFreeper

Ratings for Fox News are in the doldrums, down 21% in primetime so far this year. But don’t cry for the right-leaning network — it’s been number one on cable for nine years now, and it still has the top 12 shows.

 

According to a report from Business Insider, Bill O’Reilly remains in the top spot, but he lost 14% of his audience from the same three-month period last year. Sean Hannity places second, down 19%. Bret Baier (whoever he is) is third, beating out Glenn Beck, who has lost a whopping 30% of his audience.

CNN and MSNBC have been the beneficiaries of Fox’s decline. CNN is up by 28%, led by Anderson Cooper’s 18% rise, and MSNBC saw a 9% ratings growth. Its star Rachel Maddow has 16% more viewers.

Business Insider speculates on the possible reason:

This time period last year was dominated by the health care debate and for much of that period Fox operated as an extension of the opposition. Now that the nation’s focus is international it’s harder to figure out an angle where Obama is bad and…nuclear meltdowns and Qadaffi are good.

Another explanation could be that CNN and MSNBC have been doing so poorly in recent years that there was no place else to go but up.

Is America Under Nuclear Threat From Within? Al Qaeda’s Nuclear Bombs in America A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet

Is America Under Nuclear Threat From Within? Al Qaeda’s Nuclear Bombs in America A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
“The threats came in the mail and to date, there have been 25 letters that warn of nuclear bombs destroying America.
People who got them called the FBI and CBS 2′s Kristyn Hartman learned, the Bureau’s Chicago office is leading the investigation.” (Read the rest of the story here at the (SOURCE))
Above is the lead paragraph of a story which appears on the website of CBS Chicago at (SOURCE).
At the time this story was published 25 letters had been received.
The article goes on to explain that the writer of at least one of the letters claims there are a total of 160 nuclear bombs, which were smuggled into the USA and these bombs have already been planted in schools, stadiums, churches, stores, financial institutions — and government buildings. According to the recipient of one of the letters, the writer claims to be Bin Laden, himself, and he declares that, yes, this IS a suicide mission.

May 21, 2011 – Judgment Day!; October 21, 2011 – The End of the World

May 21, 2011 – Judgment Day!; October 21, 2011 – The End of the World

i

The purpose of this tract is to inform you of the great urgency there now is in the world for each and every person to be reconciled to God. The Bible is the Word of God! Everything the Bible declares has the full authority of God Himself. Now, at this time, information is coming forth from the Bible which clearly reveals God’s plan for Judgment Day and the end of the world itself. The Bible has opened up its secrets concerning the timeline of history. This information was never previously known because God had closed up His Word blocking any attempt to gain knowledge of the end of the world. We read about this in the book of Daniel:
Daniel 12:9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.
However, now in our present day, God has opened up His Word (the Bible) to reveal a great deal of truth concerning the end of time (and many other teachings). Also, in the same chapter of Daniel, it says:……………..

Daniel 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
God is now opening up His Word because we have arrived at the time of the end. For this reason, it has become very obvious to the serious student of the Bible that we are now living in the last few days of earth’s history. As a matter of fact, because we are living at the end of time, God is now revealing to His people the following information:
via May 21, 2011 – Judgment Day!; October 21, 2011 – The End of the World.

CURRENT COMMUNIST GOALS

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress……………

George Patton’s Secret…

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
http://web.archive.org/web/20050226083917/www.pattonhq.com/textfiles/resign.html

Patton’s Secret: “I Am Going to Resign From the Army.”

by Robert S. Allen

(Robert S. Allen, a cavalry officer with service in the Regular Army, National Guard, and Army Reserve, was General Patton’s chief of combat intelligence. He was promoted to colonel on General Patton’s recommendation and was twice personally decorated by him. He originated the book, Washington Merry-Go-Round (1931), and the subsequent daily column of the same name, and wrote Lucky Forward, a best-seller history of the Third Army, commanded by Patton. Colonel Allen was co-author of the daily syndicated column, “Inside Washington.”)

Before he was fatally injured in an auto crash, General George S. Patton had decided to dramatically resign from the Army with a characteristically spectacular statement that be was taking this unusual step, “to be free to live my own way of life.”

This plan of the famed World War II combat commander can now be told for the first time, more than 25 years after his tragic death.

As a 61-year-old West Pointer with more than 30 years of active service, including command of his country’s first tank force in World War I, Patton was eligible to retire as a four-star general. As a retired officer, he would have continued to be subject to military discipline and control.

So Patton had privately made up his mind to cut all ties with the Army by resigning as a resounding rebuke to superiors for relieving him of command of his beloved Third Army because of an outspoken comment in reply to a provocative question at a press conference….

America’s Planned Nuclear Attack on Libya By Prof. Michel Chossudovsky

America’s Planned Nuclear Attack on Libya
By Prof. Michel Chossudovsky
Global Research, March 30, 2011
A war on Libya has been on the drawing board of the Pentagon for more than 20 years. Using nukes against Libya was first envisaged in 1997.

On April 14th 1986, Ronald Reagan ordered a series of bombings directed against Libya under “Operation El Dorado Canyon”, in reprisal for an alleged Libya sponsored terrorist bombing of a Berlin discotheque. The pretext was fabricated. During these air raids, which were condemned by both France and Italy, Qadhafi’s residence was bombed killing his younger daughter.

Barely acknowledged by the Western media, a planned attack on Libya using nuclear weapons, had been contemplated by the Clinton Administration in 1997, at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

The New Colonialism by Paul Craig Roberts

The New Colonialism

Recently by Paul Craig Roberts: More Jobs Mirage

What we are observing in Libya is the rebirth of colonialism. Only this time it is not individual European governments competing for empires and resources. The new colonialism operates under the cover of “the world community,” which means NATO and those countries that cooperate with it. NATO, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, was once a defense alliance against a possible Soviet invasion of Western Europe. Today NATO provides European troops in behalf of American hegemony.
Washington pursues world hegemony under the guises of selective “humanitarian intervention” and “bringing freedom and democracy to oppressed peoples.” On an opportunistic basis, Washington targets countries for intervention that are not its “international partners.” Caught off guard, perhaps, by popular revolts in Tunisia and Egypt, there are some indications that Washington responded opportunistically and encouraged the uprising in Libya. Khalifa Hifter, a suspected Libyan CIA asset for the last 20 years, has gone back to Libya to head the rebel army.
Gaddafi got himself targeted by standing up to Western imperialism. He refused to be part of the US Africa Command. Gaddafi saw Washington’s scheme for what it is, a colonialist’s plan to divide and conquer.

WHY OBAMA SHOULD BE THROWN OUT IN 2012 ~ “Let’s look at what has inspired Obama and his socialist/communist behavior”

WHY OBAMA SHOULD BE THROWN OUT IN 2012
By Dr. Laurie Roth
April 1, 2011
NewsWithViews.com
Let’s cut to the bottom line shall we? We have a man in the White House who revealed who he was and what he would do long before he was elected President. He had already demonstrated that he was a radical, leftist and what his change for America would be if we gave him power. The U.S. gave him power, now we are reaping the consequences and must have a bold and clear plan to get him out of office before he completely destroys our country.
Let’s look at what has inspired Obama and his socialist/communist behavior. Read his own books and that will tell you plenty about his own racism and belief in Colonial imperialism. In his book, Dreams from My Father, which most believe was penned by William Ayers and not Obama, he talks of his alleged Father an ‘anti-colonial’ activist, also named Barack Hussein Obama. He believed in classic redistribution of wealth. His idea was that any wealthy country could have only obtained their wealth by stealing from poor people so that justified taking their wealth by any means necessary and redistributing it. That is the clear philosophy of Father and son.

Send in the Marines

Send in the Marines
Poliquicks ^ | MARCH 31, 2011 | H. THOMAS HAYDEN
Posted on Friday, April 01, 2011 1:02:37 AM by Bobibutu

This has been a phrase form almost every President since the Marines landed on the shores of Tripoli in 1804.

So, today again we have Marines floating off shore near Tripoli, Libya, but doubt the will be used except for TRAP – Tactical Recovery of Aircraft or Personnel, which they have already done with a USAF pilot.

But, more important is the help provided by Marines in Japan for the earthquake and tsunami needy.

Marines ashore number around 4-5,000 with more on the way from an Amphibious Ready Group – with a Marine Expeditionary Unit and 2-3,000 Marines.

The US Navy is reported to have 19 ships, 140 aircraft and 18,282 personnel giving a helping hand.

The first major Marine mission was to clean up the Sendai airport where all the cars and light planes were swept away and was deep in mud. Now the airport is the center of relief efforts in the most ravaged areas.

But wait, the National Command Authorities say we do not need as many Marines as we have today.

When all you can focus on is the national debt and the three wars the US is engaged in we tend to forget the other areas that Marines are called on often – primarily humanitarian missions.

“Don’t get too chesty, captain,” he’d say. ‘Don’t get too chesty”

“Chesty,” you see, was an old Marine expression meaning cocky.

That’s how Lewis Puller got the nickname “Chesty,” even though most of the old timers always called him Lewie.”

Frosty Wooldridge, How to Destroy America… ~ ”We are the only country in history that ever deliberately changed its ethnic makeup,,,” ( Gov Richard Lamm)

**********
”We are the only country in history that ever deliberately changed its ethnic makeup, and history has few examples of ‘diversity’ creating a stable society.”
Richard Lamm, former governor of Colorado


**********
…“Having made America a bilingual–bicultural country, having established multiculturalism, having the large foundations fund the doctrine of ‘Victimology’,” Lamm said. “I would next make it impossible to enforce our immigration laws. I would develop a mantra:
“That because immigration has been good for America, it must ALWAYS be good. I would make every individual immigrant sympatric and ignore the cumulative impact of millions of them.”In the last minute of his speech, Governor Lamm wiped his brow. A profound silence swept over the room.
Finally, he said, “Lastly, I would censor Victor Davis Hansen’s book “MEXIFORNIA.” His book is dangerous. It exposes the plan to destroy America. If you feel America deserves to be destroyed, don’t read that book.”There was no applause. A chilling apprehension rose like an ominous cloud above every attendee at the conference.

Every American in that room knew that everything Lamm enumerated was proceeding methodically, quietly, darkly, yet pervasively across the United States today. Every discussion is being suppressed. Over 100 languages rip the foundation of our educational system and national cohesiveness.
Barbaric cultures that practice female genital mutilation, terror, horse tripping, cock fighting, dog fighting and worse–grow as we celebrate ‘diversity’. American jobs vanish into the Third World as greedy corporations create a Third World in America—take note of California and other states—to date, 20 million illegal aliens and growing, fast.If you look around you, our president and this Congress dismantle America by design.
Call it ‘multi-culturalism’ or ‘diversity’ or ‘one world government’ or ‘globalism’. In the end, it will mean the finish of the United States of America as a free, cohesive, sustainable and functioning society.George Orwell wrote about it in his book, “1984.” In that story, three slogans are engraved in the Ministry of Truth building: “War is peace, “Freedom is slavery,” and “Ignorance is strength.”
Our nation and the future of this great republic are deeply in trouble and worsening fast. An invasion of diseases, clashing cultures, languages, balkanization, mounting environmental dilemmas accelerate by the day.
If this immigration monster isn’t stopped soon, it will rage across the United States like the LA demonstrations that WILL turn violent given more time, and destroy everything in their path, especially the American Dream………………………….

Trump Accuses Obama Of Warmongering While ‘Kiss[ing] Everybody’s Ass’

Trump Accuses Obama Of Warmongering While ‘Kiss[ing] Everybody’s Ass’

Donald Trump may be the only person in America to consider President Barack Obama a jingoist. In the final installment of his interview series with Bill O’Reilly the real estate magnate turned reality TV star turned 2012 hopeful pulled no punches on the President’s foreign policy in the Middle East, calling the perception of Obama as a non-interventionist erroneous given that “every time I look he’s going into another country.”

While yesterday’s interview segment focused on his interest in the President’s birth certificate, this time around O’Reilly quizzed Trump on issues that he would have to realistically face as President, particularly the struggle for stability in the Middle East. Trump apparently found the Bush doctrine of promoting democracy for democracy’s sake in the Middle East preposterous, noting that, in the old days, “when you won victories, you win… to the victor go the spoils.” He noted that leaving Iraq in the recent future would be an unwise move because it would give Iran space to attempt an invasion for control of the oil fields, and America is “not going to have enough heart to go back.” “If Iran is going to take over the oil, we stay and we keep the oil,” he argued simply. The objective, he said, was to “pay ourselves back a trillion and a half dollars more… and don’t be so stupid” that America invested in the Iraq war.

Calling himself a war scholar since “my whole life is a war,” Trump reiterated several times his belief that no war is complete without bringing something home. “A country goes in, they conquer, and they stay. We go in, we conquer, and we leave it to people we don’t even know.” This concern most vividly appeared with the current situation in Libya. Here, Trump argued that the Arab League should be paying America’s military costs– a point with which O’Reilly agreed– and noted his perception of President Obama as a warmonger. “Our weak president that kisses everybody’s ass is in more wars than anybody else,” he noted, sighing, “you’re talking about me like I’m a warmonger.”

Feeling pain at the pump? Gas prices have doubled since Mr. Obama took office. According to the GasBuddy gasoline price tracking web site, the price of a gallon of regular gas was around $1.79 when Mr. Obama took office. Today the national average is $3.58. The lowest average price in the continental United States is $3.31 in Tulsa Oklahoma, the highest is $4.14 in Santa Barbara, CA. Four-dollar-a-gallon gas has arrived on average throughout California, and a number of other states are headed in that direction.

Stetson hat to be new Army standard headgear In a tip-of-the-brim nod to its American frontier history, the Army is likely to change hats again – returning to the days of the wild west and adopting a dark blue Stetson as the official head cover…

#160 CMC Dave Shoup On Berets

Former CMC General Shoup On Berets
I think it is a sign of the times…the so called leadership is so far out of touch, they think that a beret will make a difference. The USAF tried to improve pilot retention by issuing WW2 type leather jackets to all pilots…didn’t work, this won`t either. About 40 years ago it was suggested to USMC Commandant David Shoup, that perhaps the Marines should adopt beret. General Shoup`s reply was “ Why would anyone want to look like a faggot or a Frenchman?”
