Congress To Focus On Illegal Aliens Using New Global Census Tracking Strategy

July 7, 2010

A GROUP OF REPUBLICANS has introduced legislation designed to “send a loud and clear message” to an increasing number of “sanctuary cities” across the nation that provide safe harbor to illegal aliens, including violent criminals.

At present, most illegal aliens, if apprehended at all, are released on never-kept promises to appear at deportation hearings, or, at the most, simply shipped home where they re-cross the border at their leisure.

By defining illegal entry as a felony, lawmen can deal firmly with illegal aliens, estimated to number between 14 million and 20 million.

 In San Diego County alone, he said, taxpayers are footing a $101 million a year bill for the health care and public safety costs of illegal immigration.

Based on our scientfic sports  research we have decided to focus our efforts on three cities in particular San Diego, Los Angeles and Miami. We like to call it our World Cup Viewership Census method.. 

The Census.Count On The Hostility In November

June 19, 2010

This is the scary season for the nation’s census takers.

Since they began making follow-up house calls in early May, census takers have encountered vitriol, menace and flashes of violence. They have been shot at with pellet guns and hit by baseball bats. They have been confronted with pickaxes, crossbows, and hammers. They’ve had power lawn mowers pushed menacingly toward them, and patio tables thrown their way. They have been nibbled by a duck, bitten by pit bulls and chased by a pack of snarling dogs.

So far, the Census Bureau has tallied 379 incidents involving assaults or threats on the nation’s 635,0000 census workers, more than double the 181 recorded during the 2000 census. Weapons were used or threatened in a third of the cases.

“I came across loads of hostility,” said Douglas McDonald, who summoned police in Deltona, Fla. after a tug-of-war over a census form with an irate homeowner. The homeowner threw his ripped half in the toilet.McDonald, 70, a District native who retired from the Labor Department after 30 years as an investigator, said he wasn’t prepared for the level of anti-government fervor he encountered.

“There’s so much anger and bitterness, with people losing their homes and their jobs,” said McDonald, who eventually quit. “They’re not too fond of the government. They don’t want to talk to you.”

Count on these people to vote in November.  The election is in their hands..


New Census Issues… Zentai

May 3, 2010

A growing number of people are living their lives encased head-to-toe in Lycra. Will Doig goes inside the fad that began in Japan and is coming to an American suburb near you.What Ben found was Zentai, the practice of cocooning one’s self from head to toe in a skin-tight bodysuit. Some Zentai devotees spend hours each day this way, and the reasons they do so are as varied as the suits themselves. The first thing Ben noticed when he slipped into his new Zentai suit was that he liked the way it looked. “It smoothed out all the imperfections,” he says. But even more appealing was the almost overwhelming sensation of security. “It’s like a portable safety blanket,” he continues, “like you’re pulling the sheets up over your head.” Another Zentai enthusiast, a 23-year-old student from Cincinnati named Darryl, describes the feeling of Zentai as “an all-over hug.” (Some last names have been deleted to let private enthusiasms remain private.)

Ben and Darryl have committed to living a good chunk of their lives swaddled in their cozy Zentai suits. They mainly dress in Zentai while alone in their homes, going about their personal daily routines. But other Zentai enthusiasts wear their suits in public and bask in the reactions of startled passers-by. “I’ve been quite happy living as a human silhouette.”

Problem with the Census. No box to mark for Human Silhouettes.



Our Census.. From A Computer Glitch To Stuck in a Ditch

May 2, 2010

  LOS ANGELES (AP) – A computer system that the Census Bureau needs to manage its door-to-door count of the U.S. population remained buggy and prone to crash a day before enumerators were set to begin their work, government officials said Friday.

The bureau’s Paper Based Operations Control System did not function reliably in tests and, despite hardware and software upgrades, “may not be able to perform as needed under full operational loads,” the U.S. Government Accountability Office said in a report.

“So far, it is not as stable as it needs to be,” GAO Strategic Issues Director Robert Goldenkoff said before the start of a congressional hearing on the census.

The paper-based system’s hasty design began in early 2008, after the census bureau scrapped plans to use a handheld-computer method that ended up costing more than $700 million but did not operate adequately.

The system will generate assignments for the roughly 635,000 enumerators hired to visit about 48 million homes to tally people who did not return their census forms by mail.

Instead of getting instructions from the cell-phone like handheld machines, enumerators will receive assignments on printouts.

Returning to paper-based method boosted the cost of the census by about $3 billion that using the handheld computers was supposed to have saved. From high tech to old school to being run by fools..

Thanks Az..You Ruined Our Census..Unintended Consequences Alert!!

April 26, 2010

Eye View Unintended Consequences Alert!! 

The recent passage of the Az bill allowing Az law officers to enforce the current laws, will cause an unintendedented consequence in Ca. and Tx. Illegal aliens will start to relocate and move to friendly areas such as CA and Tx. This in effect, will make the ongoing Census obsolete. The Eye View request a new Census study in 6 months to add the additional illegal aliens recently relocated to Ca.. At the same time Az needs to reduce their number.

“Just like we can’t survive without roads and bridges, the country doesn’t function well without an updated Census to distribute funds to areas that most need them and to support community decisions about their own future.”

– – Robert M. Groves, Director of the United States Census Bureau

The Director has spoken..We will have an increased number of illegal aliens, so do a recount and show us the money.. Thank you..

Ask the Eye.. Census Counting Illegal Roomate…. Fair and Balanced

April 6, 2010

Dear Eye

Should my illegal Canadian roommate be included on the census?


Concerned about immigration agency knocking on my door

Dear Concerned:

That is a very good question and why many residents are not returning the form.

Who the Census Counts Now and Why
 The U.S. Census Bureau  attempts to count all persons in the U.S. living in residential structures, including prisons, dormitories and similar “group quarters” in the official decennial census. Persons counted in the census include citizens, legal immigrants, non-citizen long-term visitors and illegal (or undocumented) immigrants. Based on the law..yes but……

Why the Census Should Count Illegal Aliens

A Matter of Money:
Not counting illegal aliens costs cities and states federal money, resulting in a reduction of services to all residents. The census count is used by Congress in deciding how to distribute more than $400 billion annually to state, local and tribal governments. The formula is simple: the greater the population your state or city reports, the more federal money it might get.

Cities provide the same level of services like police, fire and emergency medical treatment to illegal immigrants as they do to U.S. citizens. In some states, like California, illegal immigrants attend public schools. In 2004, the Federation for American Immigration Reform estimated the cost to California cities for education, health care and incarceration of illegal immigrants at $10.5 billion per year.

According to a  study released by the U.S. Census Monitoring Board, a total of 122,980 people went uncounted in Georgia during the 2000 census. As a result, the state will lose out on some $208.8 million in federal funding through 2012, a loss of about $1,697 per uncounted person.

Why the Census Should NOT Count Illegal Aliens

A Matter of Equal Representation and Politics
Counting illegal immigrants in the census undermines the fundamental principal of American representative democracy that every voter has an equal voice. Through the census-based process of apportionment, states with large numbers of illegal aliens will unconstitutionally gain members in the U.S. House of Representatives thus robbing the citizen-voters in other states of their rightful representation.

In addition, an inflated population count resulting from the inclusion of illegal immigrants would increase the number of votes some states get in the electoral college system, the actual process of electing the President of the United States.

In short, including illegal immigrants in the census count will unjustly bestow additional political power in states where lax enforcement of immigration laws attract large populations of illegal aliens, such as California, Texas and other states in which Democrats seek to gain greater influence over national politics.

So it depends on where you live.. If you are in a hopelessly blue state, include, and  go for the bucks. If  you are in a hopelessly red state, do not include, go for the represenation.  BTW would your Canadian roomate be interested in my Hamsonite Canadian Bacon briefcase? Hope this helps..Moody Eye

The Census..The Gift That Keeps on Giving

April 5, 2010

The temporary uptick in employment created by the hundreds of thousand of new seasonal census employees has created better jobs numbers for now. In the mean time, the stock speculators seeing the uptick are now driving up the price of oil. This increase in oil prices will be reflected by an increase in gas prices. So basically the ongoing census project has given us  hugely overrun budgets, as well as awful commercials, and now higher gas prices. So probably the price of gas will be higher long after the seasonal employees are let go.The gift that keeps on giving………. You can count on that..


Census Update.. Double Take…

March 21, 2010

The latest Census commercial states “fill out and return your census form, because if we do not know how many people  there  are, how will we know how many roads to build.” Maybe they should say “fill out and return your census form, otherwise, we will not know how many people will  need health care.”

Whoops….This flys in the face of heath care estimates..

Moody Eye View Calls for..Recall and Congressional Hearings

March 20, 2010

The 2010 Census data collection relied on an Field Data Collection Automation (FDCA) database created by Harris, along with the GPS capabilities of Windows Mobile handhelds built for the company by HTC. Harris claims the FDCA system, which apparently transmits updated information on addresses and street features in “near real time,” will ultimately save taxpayers more than $1 billion. Multiple and overlapping security features include fingerprint authentication, password authentication, role-based access, automatic data encryption during storage and transmission, firewalls, and virus protection, the company adds.  Because these devices were POS (pieces of shit) the units were scrapped and census workers went to paper forms.

This change caused a slight increase in the Census Costs.  Robert Groves said poor planning had resulted in added costs in the address canvassing operation estimate of $356 million.

 The agency was now re-evaluating budget estimates for the entire census operation, which is projected to cost roughly $15 billion. Where is our Congressional Investigation on HTC

Your Government at Work

March 20, 2010

Because the Census Departments hand- held devices did not function properly, the Department was forced to go with the old school fill out the paper with a # 2 pencil device. This change caused a slight increase in the Census Costs.  Robert Groves said poor planning had resulted in added costs in the address canvassing operation estimate of $356 million.

Groves said the agency had made some faulty assumptions in how quickly it could get work done. The agency was now re-evaluating budget estimates for the entire census operation, which is projected to cost roughly $15 billion.

“Those budget overruns are intolerable,” he told a House oversight subcommittee. Those #2 pencils must have been from rare rain forest trees.. The thoughts of a federal health care bill should make our head explode…
