Census taken over by Chicago-style goons like Obama and Rahm Emmanuel

One of the looming figures of 2010 is on the horizon, the US Census, particulary relating to the counting of the people. The census figures lead to redistricting, and who gains and loses seats. The right way - and really only logical way - to go is with an actual head count of individuals. What the democrats want is to go with "sampling" - a guess, so they can add more individuals in their pet areas so they can have more districts. The census is also used as the data for government spending.

Obama nominated Judd Gregg as Commerce Secretary, but that puts him in control of the census, right? Wrong! Nope, the control isn't with the commerce department, but in the white house itself.

The director of the Census Bureau will report directly to the White House and not the secretary of Commerce, according to a senior White House official.

The decision came after black and Hispanic leaders raised questions about Commerce Secretary nominee Judd Gregg ’s commitment to funding the census.

Gregg, New Hampshire’s senior senator, voted in committee and on the floor for a 1995 Republican budget that envisioned the elimination of the Commerce Department. Of even more concern to black and Hispanic leaders, Gregg battled President Clinton over a request for “emergency” funding for the 2000 census.

Now I think politics needs to stay out of the census itself with a straight up headcount, but with Rahm running it, that won't happen. Chicago style corruption is now going nationwide.

More black helicopters from dan. You're getting more paranoid and unhinged every day. Defeat does not become you. "Chicago-style goons?" What an absolute idiot you are.

Now, here's an example of chutzpah: The Republicans didn't get their act together enough to challenge Obama for not being constitutionally qualified to be President as an Article 2 "natural born citizen" so Obama's White House steals the census from the Commerce Department against the specific instructions of the constitution itself -- "actual enumeration" under Article 1
